Hardly. This thread is not about "that thread" per se. It's about the greater attitude expressed in tidy little aphorisms like "the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun" that paints the world in absolutes. I gave two examples where people we would like to think of as "good guys" (police) shot and killed innocent men, with clouds of racial bias hanging over the incidents. Who were the good guys and who were the bad guys?
