Gear, that was not directed at you. I think you know that.

Lethal force has to be reserved for fear of loss of life. One punch can end a life, so you need to be careful. You are doing time if your life is not in danger. Remember they will Monday morning QB the incident. What you had seconds to decide, they will mull over for days or weeks.

I took a gun class before I was able to get my weapon. It was very good to know what to say in case of a shoot. It really complicates things if you go out and confront someone outside. If you are safe, stay safe and call the cops. Do not shoot at something outside your house/business. Castle

The only problem with that incident is that the police tried to charge ME with assault. Long story short . . . after the prosecutor did his investigation, the whole thing was dropped . . . and the cop's knee jerk reaction to try and charge me was not warranted.
One of many incidents where cops just want to file charges . . . whether they are warranted or not. One even admitted that it's a defense measure on their part . . . if they don't and it turns out they should have, their a$$ is on the line.

I have a hard time trusting that attitude.

Heli_Splatter ,, just a quick story here,,

one night, at round 11pm, I looked out my house window and saw a car parked on the wrong side of the road "the car was on my land",, instead of going out to the car I knew to call the police, I have seen mean drunks before, I didn't want to go out there and find some crazy mean drunk, or find one past-out with a gun, so I called the police, it was the correct thing to do, well in the end it was some guy from down the street checking up on his wife, he thought his wife had a lover,,

well, when I post this story on RR and some guys got on my back about this because I called the police,, well man, I have a house, a wife, and my kids were young, and how did I know what was going on in that car, I don't want some druggy doing his thing on my land,, I did the correct thing,,

BTW, last night when I went out to get the Pizza, I saw some drunk women stop a car and she started to yell at the driver, funny how the driver slowed first to let the women cross the road,,

I too once had stopped my car to let some guy in his car go first because there was a line of cars behind me,, well, that guy gave me the "Finger",, LOL I do something nice for some one and I get the finger from them ,, wow

Just remember later when you are in bed with your wife that you did the right thing. I know just how hard it is to do, but your children will be thankful to you for making the right decision. You just don't know what is going on in their world. Just easier to move along.

Air Wolf, because you are ignoring my question I have to believe you would have shot that guy if he didn't stop, actually, I know you would have, because you would have had to, because if you didn't he may have got your gun and then shot you,, just like those cops, they had no choice

I'm done

Just one major difference. I didn't precipatate the altercation. The perp came into my place of business to do me harm . . . after he already made verbal threats outside.

But that has nothing to do with my railing against the arrogant incompetent jerks with a badge and a gun.
You have made such claims here, yet never been able to show such. You have lumped good with bad.

Don't cops have police stations? Instead of going out to stop perps, they could just advertise so the bad guys would know where to go to turn themselves in.

I am thinking the adds can also let bad folks know of the incentives progams. Everyone who turns themselves in gets a participation trophy, and if they show up at designated special bonus happy hours they also get a nice meal.

All you can eat Mystery Meat Pies for Murder Dismemberment Mondays. 3 - 6 PM

Smoked Salmon for Arson Tuesday. 3-6 PM

Polish sausage for Sexual Assault Wednesdays.

Thin Crust Meat Lover pizza for Hit and Run Manslaugter Thursdays. 4 -7 PM

... Maybe it should be Hit and Run Manslagter Mondays? Has a nice ring to it.

Mc Donalds Hamburgler Burger happy meal for Robery/Burgler Saturdays?

Maybe Bangers and Mash for Sexual assault Wednesdays?

We would need to submit the menu to a crack team of sensitivity specialists.

Gonna need some sort of Vegitable Casarole For Vegan Vandals, on Sundays.

Stuffed Cabbage for Embezelers?

My Mom used to make a fantastic Stuffed Cabbage, no embezler could resist.

Another dumb a$$ cop that doesn't know how to deal with the public . . . and a department that backs him up.

Why can he not talk to the student where she is ??
Why does he insist on getting her outside ??
And after failing, resort to violence ??

^ Body cam video shows the girl raising her arm to strike the officer. At that point in time the officer was more than justified in taking her down. Want to play like a tough biatch, ignore an officer's reasonable command to step outside and then raise your arm to strike him? Sorry, she deserved what she got.

Could have been avoided if they served some nice Seabass and mixed rice for Crazy Biatch turn yourself in Wednesdays.

Maybe some nice chilled Gazpacho for "Chill out You Crazy Biatch" Wednesdays?

Not sure if having Crazy Biatch night on alternating every other Wednesdays will really work. Lots of crazy biatches out there these days.

My point is that just because a person has a badge and a gun, doesn't relieve that person of the obligation to be a reasonable and considerate person.

There are a few examples of cops that are but sadly they are greatly out numbered by those that are not.

My point is if a few guys have handcuffs, tazers, mace, clubs, guns, and another guy wants to be a jerk and start a fight with them. He is not very smart.

Behave like a gent, then go home and watch the game is how it is supposed to go. Act up, and it escalates to something bad.

Clearly you don't get it. A cop approaches a person and acts like a bull in a china shop, there will be problems, especially if the "bull in a china shop" approach is not warranted. Sadly a lot of cops never learned that.

Once I had that problem. I was at a gas station, stopped, standing outside my vehicle, and a cop blasts up to me and accuses me of being drunk and he was going to give me a citation. I argued with him and asked him what he was talking about. He continued in an accusing and agressive manor. I told him to go ahead and give me a citation if he thought he could back it up. After about 10 minutes, he left (no citation). The next day I went to the station to file a complaint. They finally let me see the edited dash cam video and ultimately claimed there was nothing for them to do. CYA of course.

The cop either just had a bad day or he mistook me for someone else.

Either way, he's not competent and shouldn't be on patrol.

No no. VERY clearly YOU don't get it.

Cops + clubs + guns + tazers = Shut the heck up.

It's not rocket science.
