*Switches on US TV*

"I'm a police officer!"

*someone runs*

"Stop or I'll shoot!" *aim's at chest height* *BANG* *BANG*

*person falls to ground with perfect non-life-threatening thigh/shoulder wound, dropping evidence that they are evil and have no children that love them and can be jailed until they die*

"Good shooting Lou! Case solved. Where shall we go for lunch?"

*everyone forgets the shot guy ever existed*

Sure, it's video games that teach you to dehumanise people and normalise killing people with guns in public in the real world, without repercussion, and become hailed by society as a righteous hero.

Oh, no, wait, I'm thinking of US news, every time the police break into a black person's house and shoot them dead in self defence, then go free. It's *amazing* how often that happens. Blue lives matter.
