Bill Maher Says Cops ‘Shoot Too Many People’ Because They’re Scared

In the latest edition of Chelsea Handler’s new Netflix chat show Chelsea, controversial comic and Real Time host Bill Maher criticized the Dallas police for using a bomb to kill the shooter in last week’s ambush attack that killed five police officers. In a preview clip released ahead of the episode, which is now available to stream, Maher said he didn’t accpet the explanation that the weapon was used to keep officers out of harm’s way because “when you’re a cop, danger is sort of part of the job.”

“I fell like this is how we got here, because they shoot too many people because they say ‘Well, we were scared,” Maher added. “Well, I’m sorry, but that’s part of the job is to be scared.”

You can catch the full episode on Netflix now. Watch the clip above, from Netflix’s Chelsea.
