Formerly a CIA analyst and member of the NYPD intel division, Buck Sexton shares some perspective on the need for law enforcement officials to be able to defend themselves from lethal threats while in the line of duty.
There’s no amount of sensitivity or tactical training you could give a law enforcement officer to make him/her not react to a credible threat against that officer’s life with lethal force
If cops arent allowed to defend themselves, we’re betraying all those who wear the uniform

The American people seem to understand and agree with that. The latest ABC/Ipsos poll finds that an overwhelming majority of Americans oppose defunding police departments.

Tom Cotton tried to make a similar point (as Sexton’s) when calling out the New York Times for advocating the elimination of police departments.
