    The cop should be charged with child endangerment ... IMO

    FUQ (Fair Use Quote), please.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Wrong subform.....

    This should be in General discussion or Social lounge.

    Three students were hurt when a child fired an officer's rifle during a safety presentation at a Southern California elementary school Wednesday, authorities said.

    It happened about 11:15 a.m. at Newman Elementary School in Chino (map), according to Tamrin Olden, crime prevention supervisor for the Chino Police Department.

    The child fired a loaded AR-15 rifle, which was mounted on a police motorbike on on display in the school's courtyard, a school official said.
    That is how you do it.

    Sorry didn't know what FUQ was, so I looked it up and came up with this excellent article or website,

    http://www.nolo.com/legal-encycloped...ial-30100.html



    So I thought that by saying oopsie that would be criticism and I wanted to bring it to the attention of the Washington group, and it was a cop open carrying a rifle

    on a motorcycle, first time seeing that. I thought it was a legitimate topic, but no I'm wrong this belongs in the off topic social lounge area. Is that right? If so

    thanks for the point in the right direction and I will be more careful next time.

    This is not open carry of a rifle. This is transportation of a rifle on a motorcycle.

    Wrongly done, yes, and another incident of the "highly trained" special people at work. But it is not open carry.

    This is one reason for the FUQ. The subject line was wrong.

    Anyone else notice that every time a civilian is in possession of an AR15 it's an assault rifle but when it's a cop it's just a rifle?
    Also, I can understand why the rifle was loaded but why was the weapon able to be operated while in the mount? A child was able to fire it. Does that mean that anyone could have potentially taken it out of the mount?
