In this debate we talk about how police should or shouldn't be allowed to use lethal force or violence . Many political problem are occurring because police's use of lethal weapons and violence.

Round 1
Pro
 
 Richard j. daley once said ‘The police are nothere to create disorder, they're here to preserve disorder’ in my opinion,police should be allowed to use lethal force and torture in order preservepeace.

Now for my point
 
They say fight fire with fire so, if someoneposes lethal threat to the community, then why can’t the police respond withthe same force? Its only logical, right? for example, if there is a group ofterrorists, drug dealers, or a mafia who try to disturb the peace cycle; thepolice must take action. Peace and freedom, these things wouldn’t exist if itweren’t for the drastic measures the police take. Ibelieve it is necessary for police to be allowed to torture criminals forinformation. If a gang member is caught, they can squeeze information out ofhim to catch the rest.

Why use lethal force when they can usenon-lethal but just as effective weapons.
Technologytoday is the most advanced it has ever been yet the abuse of lethal weapons bypolice is at an all-time high, with over 1000 deaths every year caused bylethal force. Which if u think of it is very irrational and not safe nor smart.With the advancement of technology, Engineers have created advanced weapons thatare not lethal and as dangerous but just as effective as lethal force andweaponry.
Howwould you feel if someone close to you got really hurt or died because theabuse of weaponry by the police?
Someinventions that could replace lethal weapons for the better are:
Ammunition
Explosives
Gasesand sprays
Stickyfoam
Areadenial
Riotgun
Electroshockweapons
Directedenergy weapon
