Tyson Beckford says that the batch of cops who grew up over the last 25 years are super quick to shoot innocent people not because they’re racist, but because they’ve been playing violent video games.

“We might have to send some cops back to training because this is a generation of the computer games and video games, so I think a lot of cops, when they hold their gun, they’re so trigger happy and want to use it instead of de-escalating the situation,” Tyson told TMZ. “And I think they need to learn more of that and less gun and use more Tasers and things of that nature.”

He also has some advice for Black men when dealing with police.
