    You can be a chickenshit [ussy pay] and lead others to not be.

    They actually aren't mutually exclusive.

    If you tell others to follow you, and when they get to the door you tell them to go in--you're still a [ussy pay]. But you got the job done.

    Because some police officers place their safety and life above all others. He has something in his hand; kill him and declare qualified immunity. He has nothing in his hand; kill and declare qualified immunity. He looks suspicious; kill him and declare qualified immunity. He did not bow to my will and respect my authority regardless if my command is legal or not; kill him and declare qualified immunity. etc.

    You couldn't go in. Police were blocking, handcuffing, and threatening with arrest the parents.

    The officers who restrained him and did nothing else are accomplices to murder

    Yea, but when would you have? More than a few careers have been made by leading from behind.

    But at least they led something.

    I've never seen a leader, boss, foreman, any one in a position of authority be worth a damn if they aren't capable of doing what they ask of others

    I don't think it translates. "Worth a damn" and "bare minimum" aren't the same.

    And leadership and authority aren't the same.

    I had Marines I wouldn't want to have any authority, but I could count on them to lead their squad to an objective. They wouldn't be the first in the door. But they'd get their squad to the door.

    I had squad leaders and team leaders that were those Marines too.

    The military, law enforcement, all that, has a chain of command. And you don't recruit exactly the number of leaders you need, and exactly the number of followers.

    Typically, you're short leaders, and you make do.
