Communities expects police to be mental health counsellors. They’re not. It’s just cheaper to make the cops do it than investing in mental health programs.
and if the main tools you give hired hands to enforce laws are armed with a handgun and a loud voice that needs obeying and body armor, what are they going to use in every situation?
If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
And because the problem of police committing crimes themselves in the execution of their duties were so bad, they have gained more and more qualified immunity since the 1980s to a point now where they are untouchable; it takes a big huge expensive lawsuit for a police officer to see even the TINIEST bit of responsibility.
