Beberapa media kenamaan di Spanyol rupanya sepakat bahwa nasib Barcelona untuk dapat menghindari label krisis bakal ditentukan di duel leg kedua 16 besar Liga Champions melawan Manchester City dini hari nanti.

Pasalnya, El Barca saat ini tengah melorot ke peringkat tiga klasemen sementara, hasil dua kekalahan di tiga laga terakhir mereka. Andai ingin menepis adanya penurunan di permainan tim, Gerardo Martino harus membuat timnya sukses menekuk City di Camp Nou (13/03). Tentunya ini telah terlepas dari fakta bahwa tuan rumah sudah unggul dua gol secara agregat.

Sport menulis bahwa laga antara Barca dan City bakal krusial usai kekalahan di La Liga pekan lalu. Mereka juga telah menyebut bahwa tim kini tak hanya sekedar mengincar tiket perempat final, namun juga harga diri yang sempat hilang di beberapa laga terakhir.

Sedangkan Mundo Deportivo secara tegas menyebut Barca harus all-out menghadapi City. Media ini juga tak lupa meminta fans Barca untuk terus percaya pada tim, menyusul hasil buruk yang didapat di beberapa laga belakangan. Andai kalah dari City, Barca dipercaya bakal mengalami momen terburuk mereka tahun ini.

Terakhir El 9 menuntut reaksi cepat dari Barcelona andai mereka tidak ingin momen buruk yang ada saat ini terus berlarut-larut. Media ingin menegaskan bahwa keunggulan 2-0 sama sekali belum menjamin apapun bagi Barca.

Media Spanyol sepakat nasib Barca di tangan City

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
