Sadly, this would force them to think about alternate methods to detain people, which should already be their first, second and third choices.
The real problem is, first and foremost, the public does not believe LEOs are justified when shooting an unarmed suspect, even when fleeing the scene. ‘Fearing for your life’ is a difficult concept when suspect is running away from you. Respect my authority or receive the death sentence, immediately. A civilian wouldn’t get a pass in similar circumstances.
