Do Cops Need Guidance on When They Can Shoot to Kill?

Hosted by

Continual shootings of unarmed suspects have America's 18,000 police departments re-thinking policies on the use of deadly force. Some new training programs now include "tactical disengagement," "emotional intelligence" and "de-escalation." What does that mean on the street? During training in one major city, cops can only fire two bullets before they're required to stop and assess the situation. Some rank and file officers claim politics is making their lives more dangerous -- in a debate that's raging from Baltimore to San Francisco.
