Police warning shots may be in for a comeback
Why don't the police fire warning shots? That's a question that comes up a lot, especially after controversial shooting deaths. Last fall, the International Association of Chiefs of Police and 10 other law enforcement groups got together to work out a consensus policy on the use of force — a sort of model document for local departments that want to update their rules. When the document came out in January, it contained a surprise: It allowed for warning shots.
