Informing the public

This article reproduces an open letter from the police chief in Fayetteville, Arkansas to residents of his city, informing them about use-of-force related training and accountability measures in his agency. The letter reflects his awareness that the public is often not knowledgeable about administrative practices already in place and often taken for granted by those inside policing.

    He should have made it clear that reaching for one’s pocket cannot be taken to mean police can use lethal force under the apprehension that the person is reaching for his gun. Protection of self has been taken to ludicrous lengths in the US.
