Day 21. After a bit of feedback from my evolvr instructor (I asked a clarification about latest priority piece), I hit another 30 practice balls (2-3 sessions a few times during the day) indoors, off a mat, into a net, focusing on the setup (hips tucked under, left higher than right, not actively leaning away from target).
Not part of today's report: successfully practiced a lot of 3' and 6' putts last night on a real putting green, will aim to do so again tonight too. After the last few rounds I'm inclined to believe my putting, especially from within 10', is warranting the extra practice time
Still reeks of lack of training. You can't be comfortable with a situation unless you train for it. Someone who pulls their gun in this situation clearly lacks the experience to make the correct decision.
I disagree about it being a training issue. You see examples all the time of white offenders who have shot and killed people taken into custody without any use of force at all. They have the training it’s just used on the people they want to apply it to. I will say that a part of the problem is there are a lot of calls police answer that they have no business dealing with and don’t have the training to deal with. That’s an entire different subject. I agree with the part about not all cops being bad but if they aren’t exposing the bad ones then they are just as guilty. There are so many layers to the problems with race relations in this country. I hope it’s finally time that they begin to actually get fixed and not just given lip service.
