Gangs out of control
Back 50 years ago in Anchorage, the authorities didn’t have to worry about the shoot to kill policy because the authorities kept things under control. Today we have 170 criminal gangs from Anchorage to the valley, all of whom would like to take down a cop as a trophy. The police know this and that makes them on edge all the time. If the authorities would put today’s violent attack criminal gangs behind bars, then things would be somewhat under control and shoot to kill wouldn’t be as big of a concern as it is today.
