Steller column: Courts give police officers too much leeway to shoot

ARIZONA DAILY STAR, 24 APRIL 2018, FEAT. PROF. SETH STOUGHTON:

You can’t blame police officers for being afraid.

The career they chose naturally puts them in risky situations, and just showing up for work can make them targets. On Thursday, two sheriff’s deputies eating in a Florida restaurant were shot and killed for no apparent reason other than their uniforms.

Yet that fear, that sense of danger may be growing exaggerated among some police officers in some places, at some times, and getting other people killed.
