Cjus 420 db forum 4 2 replies due 9/21/2020

you are required to reply to 2 other classmates’ threads. Each reply must be a minimum of 100 words and must cite at least 2 academic sources. One source has to be biblical.. Acceptable sources include the textbook, peer-reviewed journal articles, government sources/websites, and professional association websites. In addition to academic support, students must apply a Chrisitian worldview perspective and integrate Biblical scripture support for all posts. 
Responding to a classmate’s post requires both the addition of new ideas and analysis. A particular point made by the classmate must be addressed and built upon by your analysis in order to move the conversation forward. Thus, the response post is a rigorous assignment that requires you to build upon initial posts to develop deeper and more thorough discussion of the ideas introduced in the initial posts. As such, reply posts that merely affirm, restate or unprofessionally quarrel with the previous post(s) and fail to make a valuable, substantive contribution to the discussion will receive appropriate point deductions.
 replies are due by 10:59 p.m. (CST) on Monday of the same modules/weeks

According to Treebold, “Police officers are given the right and opportunity to act according to their discretion in stopping people, arresting them and using force to bring about an arrest” (2018).  In simple terms, officers are allowed to use the amount of force necessary or reasonable to stop a suspect, and get both the situation and suspect under control, even up to death. There are several, non-lethal, options for control that police officers use when making contact with a person who is suspected of committing a crime.  Some non-lethal options are handcuffs, batons, pepper spray, beanbags, and tasers (Hess et al., 2017) . 
When using these non-lethal options, the circumstances can change at a drop of a dime.  The pendulum can swing either way.  Non-lethal options can sometimes bring the situation under control quickly.  However, there are times when the use of pepper spray or tasers can heighten a situation and cause the suspect to become more erratic or combative.  I have seen where officers have tried to handcuff a subject and for whatever reason the suspect wrestles and refuses to submit.  The officer may then have to increase the level of intensity and utilize the baton or even the taser to bring order and control . 
In the event that the life of the officer or of others are in danger, “the officer is at the point of last resort because the situation is rapidly deteriorating” (Hess et al., 2017), then the choice of deadly force may be used.   I hate to see anyone lose their life. However, I do understand that there are circumstances where it is unavoidable.  The officer must do what is necessary for the greater good. Romans 12:18 NIV, reminds us to “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.” Life is about choices and we must all choose wisely.  As children of God we should live in a way that produces good things and that allows us to live our best life.  However, if we do not it is only going to result in our own suffering and pain.

Use of force continuums should always began at the lowest necessary force level and escalate only as much as needed to affect an arrest without becoming excessive. Options included are verbal commands, soft and hard hand techniques, taser, OC spray, asp baton and ultimately, deadly force; typically using the service pistol, shotgun, or rifle. “When making an arrest, officers may legally use that level of force reasonably necessary to gain control of the person. With actively combative subjects, that level of force might be considerable” (Hess, K. et al, 2017). The use of force necessary to affect an arrest can vary depending the level of compliance that the suspect chooses to exercise.
Most arrests can be handled with verbal commands and escort holds. When suspects choose not to comply, the level of resistance can range from passive to active and ultimately to deadly. Use of force policies can differ from department to department. However, “such policies usually permit use of a gun or other weapon only in self-defense or if others are endangered by the suspect” (Hess, K. et al, 2017). God wrote on a tablet in his own handwriting, “You shall not murder” (Exodus 20:13, NIV); when establishing the Mosaic Law. This law still stands today. This law is typically protected by police officers, but also applies to police officers; especially since a sidearm is an extremely important tool in every police officers toolbox. The only difference between killing and murdering is the circumstances leading up to the trigger pull.
