Letter: Doing their job

I agree with Lon Allan in his column about police-involved shootings (Aug. 7).

How well I remember while training at the Los Angeles Police Academy for the police department.

We were told that when you pull that gun out and set your finger on the trigger, because you’re in a situation, you have just two seconds to make a decision, and if you shoot a person, there will be an investigation, and it will take a judge and jury about two weeks to decide whether you are guilty or not.

People must realize those police officers are out there doing their job protecting you.
