"I'm concerned about our cops on the street. I'm all for people having the right to protect themselves from those that have the potential of committing crimes," Oshkosh Police Chief Scott Greuel said. "But we need to be able to differentiate between the law-abiding citizens that mean no harm and the criminals that might be intent on committing those crimes."
Hmmm, the guy standing in line at the beer store with a 6 pack in one hand, and money in the other, carrying is probably a law abiding citizen. the guy with a gun in his hand, pressed to the clerk's head probably isnt.
Winnebago County Sheriff John Matz said officers undergo training sessions that recreate stressful situations so they become aware of the way their body changes under stress —common effects include tunnel vision and auditory exclusion — and can learn to react to the changes.
"I'm more concerned about the citizen using deadly force on the perpetrator than the perpetrator," Matz said. "I'm concerned people have a thorough understanding of when they can use it and the stress the body goes through and changes the body will make under extremely stressful situations."
Cops get tunnel vision, and auditory exclusion?! say it aint so!
