    A buddy told me of an LE shooting where it was a NO BRAINER use of lethal force where the cop went and cried about it. WTF?

    I'm not gonna pass judgement on how some may react after killing someone. There's some evil people out there who deserve no tears to be sure.

    An adrenaline rush like that may be enough tot trigger an emotional response alone, whether it appears warranted or not.

    Even if it wasnít that, just because the guy deserved to die, doesnít mean that cop wanted to be the one to do it.

    While I certainly havenít been responsible for an evil person dying, the closer Iíve been to death and the more frequently thatís happened, the harder itís been for me to compartmentalize it into different categories.

    Suicide, combat, accident, illness, etc.

    At times, itís seems that itís all death and all bad.

    Now again, none of these guys were bad, but the point being that abnormal human reactions and emotions feel reasonable to me when it comes to death.

    It can be heavier than youíd expect, even for people that you wouldn't expect.

    Part of this could also be the realization that for the next several years you may be dealing with criminal, administrative, and civil hearings, no matter how open and shut the case is.

    I've never been in a gunfight but I've dropped a decent amount of bombs in the GWOT. I tend to think the level of stress associated with the event, and how prepared you are to deal with that, can be just as difficult to deal with than the actual act of killing someone.

    I tend to be somewhat confucianist about this and believe it is evil to forgive evil and to be good you must destroy evil.

    This is my biggest disconnect with christian thought.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    I've seen guys in the military do the same, not everyone can manage the mindset. Lots of people begin both thinking "I'll be able to help people and make the world a better place." Many do not understand until it is much too late that the world they are trying to help is populated by some exceptionally evil individuals who are capable to doing exceptionally horrible things to the people who deserve it the least.

    Even when they take lives and save lives, it can still f them up very badly because they never thought they'd actually have to do it and it was much more traumatic "to them" then they ever imagined it could be. I knew a female officer that joined the Ft. Lauderdale narcotics squad ("Raiders") who was basically recruited from the ranks so they could have a more diverse group. She thought she was good to go and they constantly reinforced the notion that she was a good fit.

    Then they had a bad night where she shot two people, one of whom has just shot another officer, and it was a 100% "needed to happen" event but it completely f'd her up and she never got over it. She left the Raiders team before the investigation was even concluded and within a year was no longer employed as a police officer. She had a hard time finding another job in related fields because "she quit" and everyone assumed she must have done something wrong.

    I am Jewish and as a result I know the 10 commandments say don't murder, rather than the mistranslated don't kill.

    I have killed, I have never murdered anyone.

    When I moved back to the USA, I learned that after so much in my past and living in a war zone had me operating in just normal life at a much higher level of intensity.

    Which I refuse to call PTSD.

    I remember we had a family emergency in the middle of a war, so all of my brother in laws and I returned to Israel. I grabbed a ride on a chopper and landed in a government helipad in Jerusalem . I had to borrow money from one of the people there to pay for the taxi. I was in jeans, t shirt chicom web gear, Hi Power in shoulder holster and a AK 47. The security at the place I landed had to tell the taxi driver I was cool and not a terrorist. When I got to the hospital, I was greeted by security pointing guns at me. I gave them a phone number to call and it all was cool.

    I went into the hospital and checked in on how the mother in law was. 4 of us stunk to high heaven and were dirty having come straight from the war. After a few hours we went to my father in laws house to eat. As we were eating we were talking about the war which included of course stories of killing people and even one of us had shot down a chopper full of Syrian commandos. We were laughing our @sses off.

    Such is boys and war
