Suicide by Police

Every police officer is armed and rarely will they ever be found guilty of killing citizens. In London, the police were unarmed and there was far less violence. A criminal in the state knows he may have to shoot his way out because the police are armed.

Nonetheless, there is also a growing trend of what is being called “Suicide by Cop” where people lack the courage to commit suicide so they look for other means. Inside prison, they will typically pick a fight with someone they know would kill them

Outside, people who are already contemplating suicide but lack the courage, decide that provoking a policeman into killing them is the best way to achieve that goal. These individuals may even commit a crime with the specific intention of provoking the police into a lethal confrontation.

Still, others who are committing a crime but have been in prison before may choose to shoot it out and prefer death to prison.

The question becomes, should every police officer carry a gun? Should there be special forces that are called in? If they know the police are not armed, as, in London, they don’t shoot them. Interesting question!
