No doubt being a police officer is a difficult and demanding job. Often days of boredom are interrupted by life threatening terror. Very few people are cut out for it. Some do not realize that the job is not for them until they are confronted with a life or death decision. Perhaps there is a non-intuitive a solution. More female officers! Men - the hunters- instinctively confront force with force. Women – the nurturers - have evolved to use other means, because force is not usually an option. Our tribal instinct is to keep our females safe, but in a modern world that is a less important strategy. Recall the female high school principal who talked down a would-be-shooter, before the police snipers arrived.
