This guy's (Antonio Williams, the guy interviewed in the video) patient reasoning about police shootings is exactly how I feel in most cases. Notice how he doesn't presume individual police officers to be bad murderous-intending people, but rightly blames the training and conversely the lack of imagination and will to pursue non-lethal methods and time for de-escalation (worded that way because police have always understood de-escalation, what they don't do is budget for it in real-time crisis handling).
This man will enrage those who hate police and genuinely believe all officers roam the streets with a mindset to kill. But you have to leave those people behind as much as you have to leave behind people who believe law enforcement can do no better than violence in crisis handling.
