The officer-involved shooting in Minnesota spotlights police training once again and what may need to change. Many are left wondering how former officer Kim Potter pulled her gun rather than a taser during Sunday’s deadly incident. Former Fort Worth Police Chief Jeff Halstead says the gun and taser are usually worn on the opposite side of the belt, so a lack of training may be to blame for the tragedy. He says police need to do everything they can to de-escalate a situation. Halstead added that it might be time to re-examine why police make specific traffic stops when they do.
