It's part of their training.

Training setup: Cops go into a room, having been told that they will be facing a dangerous situation. They have the expectation that they will need to draw their guns, and fire at the threat. And they do so, but to be covered, you got to shout that warning first.
And the shots are fired, but hey, in the training, it's for effect, the noise is to scare the Bad Guys.

In real life? Well, watch the body cam footage. Cops go in with the expectation that they will meet deadly danger, and need to respond as such. In reality, the level of danger not identified, the 'shoot for effect' kills someone, warning given, but no pause to see if the person has heard and is responding. But the training worked, right? No Good Guys were harmed, right?

Cops need blanks in their guns. Or their training needs some revision.

Only in America, sad to say.

EDIT: Most of the cops who get pinged after killing a zero threat unarmed civilian look kind of confused and dazed afterwards. Like, 'What went wrong?'
Answer - nothing went wrong, you were trained to do just that. Stress, tension, your training kicked in. Perhaps they need to sue their employers for the inappropriate training they received?

3. Cops are afraid of their own shadows.

Watch any video of police shootings. They panic, they shoot, then they try to figure out how to make the shooting a "good shooting."
In fact, just google the term, "good shooting." It's all there in blue and white.
