When I saw Mike Enos’ letter in The Bee on July 10 about non-lethal ammo I immediately recalled the video of the officer drawing his gun as he leaned over a man who was all but in the officer’s lap as both were on the ground in front of a car in Baton Rouge, La.
I immediately thought, why a gun at this close range? Why not pepper spray attached to the belt loop in front of the holster, or a small Taser-like gadget attached to the pant leg, easy to reach in that tight situation? Anything that could give the officer a quick choice of the options literally at hand?
