Split Second Decisions from the Security of Your Living Room

In a post Ed Rasimus titles Detwaddling, he points us to a piece written by Fred Reed titled Some Things Detwaddled - Cops, Race, Reporters wherein Fred asks readers to do this.

Let us play a little game in the peace and security of your living room. You will be a cop responding to an armed-robbery call at a Seven-Eleven, and you will have your pistol in your hand. I will play the robber, initially with my back to you as you enter the store. I will tell you before the game begins that I will have in my hand, close to my body, either a (toy) gun or a dayglo-yellow plastic banana.

Ed encourages readers to think about what Fred writes.  I second the motion.
