The extent to which police should use force in thwarting crime is a subject of hot debate. Some countries do not routinely arm police officers with guns. Elsewhere, officers are sometimes required by law to fire warning shots or attempt to injure a suspect before commencing with deadly force. In still other nations, such actions are considered unlawful and officers are trained to shoot to kill.About the Author:
