No amount of public outcry will change that. So proposing some sort of non lethal seal team six training for cops across the country is just a fantasy, when even the best trained military units are trained around eliminating threats.
A more realistic goal would be decreasing the number of raids in the first place.
The only way to get them to think twice at this point is to hit their pockets. Cities should not pay for lawsuits anymore, that should come from their pension fund. You'd incentive the so called "good" cops to at least call out the ones breaking the rules because the bad apple in this case would ruin it for everyone. They don't care about anything other than themselves, I'm sure they'd care about their money getting hit.
Making the cops foot the bill would end up hurting the victims. Also, the police unions would buy them insurance.
The amount of victims would drop when the Cops actually have to think twice, currently they can just let the bullets fly without any repercussions. The only thing America cares about is money, so I'd guess the Police are the same way.
And close those loopholes you're talking about. There should be no way around them having to pay from their pension, cities should not foot the bill anymore.
