Waktu tlah tiba
    Aku kan meninggalkan
    Tinggalkan kamu
    Tuk sementara

    Kau dekap aku
    Kau bilang jangan pergi
    Tapi ku hanya dapat berkata

    Aku hanya pergi ’tuk sementara
    Bukan ’tuk meninggalkanmu selamanya
    Aku pasti ’kan kembali pada dirimu
    Tapi kau jangan nakal
    Aku pasti kembali

    Kau peluk aku
    Kau ciumi pipiku
    Kau bilang janganlah ku pergi

    Bujuk rayumu
    Buat hatiku sedih
    Tapi ku hanya dapat berkata

    Back to Reff:

    'Pabila nanti
    Kau rindukanku didekapmu
    Tak perlu kau risaukan
    Aku pasti akan kembali

    Back to Reff: 2x

WASHINGTON — During a training course on defending against knife attacks, a young Salt Lake City police officer asked a question: “How close can somebody get to me before I’m justified in using deadly force?”

Dennis Tueller, the instructor in that class more than three decades ago, decided to find out. In the fall of 1982, he performed a rudimentary series of tests and concluded that an armed attacker who bolted toward an officer could clear 21 feet in the time it took most officers to draw, aim and fire their weapon.

The next spring, Mr. Tueller published his findings in SWAT magazine and transformed police training in the United States. The “21-foot rule” became dogma. It has been taught in police academies around the country, accepted by courts and cited by officers to justify countless shootings, including recent episodes involving a homeless woodcarver in Seattle and a schizophrenic woman in San Francisco.

Now, amid the largest national debate over policing since the 1991 beating of Rodney King in Los Angeles, a small but vocal set of law enforcement officials are calling for a rethinking of the 21-foot rule and other axioms that have emphasized how to use force, not how to avoid it. Several big-city police departments are already re-examining when officers should chase people or draw their guns and when they should back away, wait or try to defuse the situation
