Is it okay for a police officer to attack a person if that person attacked the police officer first?

There are some cases when people attack police officer and then police officer retaliates by attacking that person who initiated the fight.

    Interesting question, but I want to look at the reverse. 

    "Is it okay for a person to attack a police officer if that police officer attacked the person first?"

    No, as this would be how a civilian would address it. They’re trained to deescalate situations and should incorporate that

  • The principle of reasonable and reciprocal force applies.  Like any of us, a policeman can defend himself from an attack.  A policeman also has a power of arrest.  What neither police nor anyone else is allowed to do is mete out punishment.  If you are arresting someone for passing a forged banknote, you are not permitted to administer the death penalty.

    There is such a thing as reasonable force used in self defense. The way that law works, at least here, is if someone punches you, you can block and punch them back. If someone has a knife or is trying to seriously injure you, you can break their arm, or even their neck, or perhaps shoot them if you had a gun, but you can't stab or shoot someone if they just come into your house, that's not how the law works here. You can't shoot someone because they tap on your car to let them know you are there, you can't shoot them for pushing you or throwing a punch. You definitely can't kneel on their jugular for many minutes until they die. 

    Bear in mind I think this whole thing is a big scam, a hoax, exactly like the coronavirus was a hoax, it is part of a very large fascist NWO takeover attempt that has been in the works for over a decade. The Rockerfeller Foundation's lock step of their plans for future development, released in 2010. Talks about the push back against the lock down, from the virus. You understand? Every part of this is a scam, a hoax, a false flag event, like 9/11 was, to get money and power, for them. They are that evil, they funded Hitler, they are eugenicists. This is what they are, what they do. Make money and power and kill off chunks of world population. "Sustainability" "agenda 21".

    That is called self-defense.  Yes. That is allowed but the cop is not suppose to use excessive force.  Unfortunately some cops resort to deadly force immediately.

    But Floyd didn't attack the police officer. The problem isn't people defending themselves when attacked.  The problem is police officers killing people when they've not been attacked, often when the person isn't even armed, often when the person didn't even do anything at all other than being black. There's this assumption that because the police officer is involved, the person must've done something to bring it upon themselves, but that's not the reality. The reality is black people are routinely stopped by and harassed by police when they have done absolutely nothing. There isn't a black person in this country that doesn't have a list of times that that's happened to them, that they were just walking down the street minding their own business and police rolled up on them, turned on their lights, and just started shaking them down, acting like they did something.
