WHEN LAW ENFORCEMENT MOVES FROM THE HANDS OF THE POLICE INTO THE HANDS OF SPECIAL FORCES IMPUNITY IS INSTITUTIONALISED

Every service which requires training is a profession. The force whose
training is of paramount necessity is the disciplined force. It is the
only profession whose duties include the use of force when necessary.Since such force could maim and kill those who possess them, they
should be given proper training on the value of human life .
A member of a disciplined force who does not know the value of human
life becomes a virtual murderer. Criminal justice has distinguished
the various forms of law   enforcement.
Law enforcement is supposed to be suspect centred. A suspect who is
unarmed and peaceful could easily be touched and told that he or she
is under arrest. One does not need an armed police officer to conduct
such arrest or put such a person in handcuff. One treats a suspect as
an innocent person who has explanation to do if he/she does desire to
be free from suspicion or go to court to prove one’s innocence, if
charged.
Force is used to match the level of resistance. The primary
responsibility of a law enforcement officer is to protect life instead
of taking it. Hence, a professional in law enforcement would know when
to use force and what force to use to neutralise another force being
used to escape arrest.
The police force should be allowed to do its work. Armed personnel
should only come into the scene when called upon by the police to
handle any threat from a person bearing arms. If people with live
bullets are assigned police duties the innocent citizens could become
victim of gunshots based on misconceived suspicion.
