It really has been drilled into these guys, “Shoot first, ask questions later”.
This kind of instinctive shooting is something that has been drilled into combat troops for years, I myself had similar training during the 11 years in the Royal Air Force. Its been a part of video games for years, just look at games such as call Of Duty or any of that type of game. Its shoot shoot shoot. This seems to be spilling over into real life now as this police officer said himself that he had recently completed firearms training & it was just instinct & muscle memory to shoot the unarmed motorcyclist. I’m sure this isn’t the only case we will see of this kind of thing this is not the first & it won’t be the last, unfortunately.
