    Our armed forces people who have operated in Afghanistan and Iraq and else where the past 20 or so years HAVE not been trained to see those not in the same uniforms as the enemy. Actually quite the opposite.

    They have dealt with very complex situations by and large done a good job.

    They are NOT robots who come home programmed to kill.

    I would like to see a break down of the police officers that have been involved in excessive use of force . See what % are military veterans and of those how many were combat arms and or combat veterans.

      Officers who were deployed were 2.9 times more likely to have fired their weapons while on duty. Those who were not deployed were 1.94 times more likely to be involved in a shooting.

      In a 2017 investigation, The Marshall Project found that officers in Boston and in Miami with military experience were more likely to have a use-of-force complaint filed against them.
