Police tactics?
Yah think?

  • Guyger,( the shooter) a four-year veteran of the police force, told investigators that she had just ended a 15-hour shift Thursday when she returned in uniform to the South Side Flats apartment complex.

Let's stop right there..ok?

I'm a retired trucker. 25 years...2.5. MILLION miles. Federal laws says that a trucker can't work more than ten hours at a time...because...ya know...we might make a mistake and KILL someone if we get too tired.

Fifteen hours?

She has a gun.

She shot and killed someone..

Ooops..wrong apartment...

Sorry about that.

FIFTEEN HOURS!

well yeah they work absurdly long shifts from time to time but cops and doctors usually only kill one person at a time when they fuck up, not a whole busload. And when they fuck up it does not snarl traffic all morning.

Cops in Toronto work 4 shifts each 12 hours long per week. I think with trucking vs policing, is that trucking can get boring and mundane, depending where you're driving. Some roads are long straight and nothing changes much for many hours. Whereas, at least an active on duty cop, is getting a change of scenery constantly.
