An independent study comparing dispute resolution by the police forces in two countries, one in which the police officers are always armed and others in which police officers do not usually carry any fire-arms, found that the armed police force shot significantly more suspects than the unarmed one. The findings of the study clearly show that regular possession of a fire arm prompts police officers to disregard the use of less harmful alternatives such as tasers, CS spray etc.

Which of the following, if true, most strengthens the above argument?

A) The unarmed police officers often undergo training programs related with sensitizing them towards people in general.
B) In the cases considered, the overall level of danger involved to the unarmed police officers was relatively lower than the overall level of danger involved in cases in which the armed police officers used their fire-arms.
C) In most of the cases studied, the use of the fire-arms was not initiated by the suspects being chased by the armed police.
D) In many countries, the police officers work in teams of two and more often than not, one of the officers always carries a fire-arm.
E) Studies show that in countries where the police forces are armed, the rate of death penalty is higher than in countries in which the police forces are unarmed

Option C eliminates any other causes for the armed forces to shoot if the suspects are not shooting why should the armed forces do so?. It also points out that the armed forces do not use other alternatives.

The findings of the study clearly show that regular possession of a firearm prompts police officers to disregard the use of less harmful alternatives such as tasers, CS spray etc.

Which of the following, if true, most strengthens the above argument?

A) The unarmed police officers often undergo training programs related with sensitizing them towards people in general. >>>Weakens the argument as it is saying training is responsible for fewer shootings

B) In the cases considered, the overall level of danger involved to the unarmed police officers was relatively lower than the overall level of danger involved in cases in which the armed police officers used their fire-arms.>>> Again weakens the argument

C) In most of the cases studied, the use of the fire-arms was not initiated by the suspects being chased by the armed police. >>> Correct by POE

D) In many countries, the police officers work in teams of two and more often than not, one of the officers always carries a fire-arm.>>> Irrelevant
E) Studies show that in countries where the police forces are armed, the rate of the death penalty is higher than in countries in which the police forces as compared >>> out of scope
