In the wake of the murder of Philando Castile, who did nothing but obey the law, I asked over at Aryeh Cohen’s wall on FB about police training. This article from the Washington Post was posted there about Dave Grossman who runs popular courses for police officers teaching, extolling the use of deadly force. You  can find it here. What stands out is the collusion of the state and non-state actors employed by the state to train state actors in policing a “population.”
