Police Use of Force, According to an AI program. 2023

So AI, or Artificial Intelligence is all the rage in online conversations and in social audio apps like the ones I attend in the Clubhouse audio chat app. The Clubhouse app is free and great for personal and or professional use. If you want to check it out you can download it for free here. If you want to follow me on the app that would be great. look for me John J Wiley or the profile @LetRadioShow.

One of the most talked about AI platforms has been ChatGPT, you can find their website here.

After numerous conversations about the uses for ChatGPT, I decided to give it a test run. I typed in "Police Use Of Force" and the text below is what it printed out.

"The use of force by law enforcement officers is a controversial and complex issue. The use of force can refer to physical force, such as striking someone or using weapons, or it can refer to less physical forms of coercion, such as verbal commands or psychological tactics.

In general, the use of force by police is justified when it is necessary to protect themselves or others from harm. However, the amount of force used must be reasonable and proportional to the threat or resistance encountered.

There are various laws, policies, and guidelines that govern the use of force by law enforcement officers. For example, in the United States, the U.S. Constitution's Fourth Amendment protects individuals from unreasonable searches and seizures, including the use of excessive force by law enforcement. In addition, many law enforcement agencies have their own policies and procedures that outline when and how force can be used.

It is important for law enforcement officers to use force responsibly and ethically, as the use of excessive force can have serious consequences for both the individual against whom force is used and for the officer and the law enforcement agency."

What do you think of it? For now, I can safely say that it doesn't replace the impact of authors writing from their own experience, especially for what we do here.
