In my opinion, Police officers use force because they feel they have to, not because they want to. Police face extreme danger due to the majority of criminals resisting arrest. The only way to ensure a successful arrest and the safety of the officers is to permit police officers to use force in times when they feel as if they have no other option. Nothing could be more illogical than expecting police officers to not use force when their and others’ lives are in danger.Also I propose that, if the suspect won over the police, crime will eventually increase. This puts not only the life of the police officer in danger but also puts the safety of the entire community at risk.

In another example, if there is a shooting that breaks out on the streets. The police should be allowed to use lethal force due to the need for survival. They are simply defending themselves. But I would like to draw attention to the fact that they are not only protecting themselves, but they are also protecting innocents and civilians as well! Accordingly, the voices of the people calling out for an end to the use of deadly force by police are putting not only the lives of police officers in danger, but also their own lives.
