    Okay a pellet gun is just that a gun. It can cause damage and even death. As a police officer you don't know it is a pellet gun or a actual firearm.

    from the perspective of the police officer it is a scary situation to go into. Now when a suspect runs into a house with a gun. It is more intense and dangerous.

    As much flak as they get they have a hard job.

    well some pellet guns are really strong too! my bro has a powerline, and that thing is 1000+ fps sounds like a .22 when you shoot it almost! (well like a .22 with some subsonic ammo :P) still though, if i were a cop, i wouldnt hesitate to shoot someone who was pointing a real pellet gun at me... they can kill ya if they hit you in the eye or temple!

    also, has anyone noticed that KSL is having issues? im lookin for a big fish tank and its showing everything as posted last night, and no sooner. tech difficulties with the site?

    So quick story: back in 1993/94 I got suspended from high school for having a BB gun in my backpack: it was black, a handgun that looked like a 9mm glock or something. That is exactly what the principle, school officer and everyone told me, it looks real enough that they would have no idea whether its a bb gun or not.

    Plus it can still do a lot of damage. Another quick story: my friends and I were at camp (brought the bb gun) went up the hill to look for something & my friend shot towards me, I got hit in the leg and the bb penetrated my thigh: had to have the scout master cut it out.

    Case in point: this guy got in trouble for brandashing a BB gun. Is it worth it?

    Youmay do whatever you want with your kudos, but no group of people deservemine. Individuals may earn them.

    I know several LEOs from Lehi PD that deserve respect. I have come to respect those officers through my dealings with them.

    On the other hand, there are a few in American Fork who I loathe. If you search back a little, you will see why.

    I am disgusted that he gets the charges dropped by yelling "It's cause i'm black"

    Yet Mnt Jack has to go through all the expense of getting a jury to drop his charges,
    and he didn't even disrespect the officer.

    Why don't they ever show the
    "COPS JBT's" episodes where they harass OC'ers? I'd rent it.

    Hey Mr. cow, here are 40 cops you can you can give kudos to! 40 COPS!!! For one 78 year old man. Pathetic.

    After a nearly two-hour standoff, police and SWAT officers used nonlethal force Thursday to subdue a 78-year-old man who had threatened to kill himself.

    Police said the man, who had been drinking alcohol since the night before, called 911 around 10:30 a.m. threatening suicide and told police he had a gun, said Lindon Police Chief Cody Cullimore.

    When police arrived at the man's duplex at 480 N. Locust Ave., after unsuccessfully trying to re-establish a phone connection, they searched the backyard, where the man had claimed he was, but were unable to find him. Nearly 40 officers responded from the Lindon, Orem and Pleasant Grove police departments, as well as the Utah County Metro SWAT team.

    They did a great job didnt they. As far as I know no one was injured and the drunk man was taken into custody. The professonal demeanor exhibited in behavior and actions by those outstanding Officers usaully is not noted. I for one am grateful for those men of honor, courage and integrity. Seems like they get poked at alot on this site. I think that is wrong.

    Negative Mr. Cow, how is a SWAT response to a man wanting to commit suicide appropriate in any way.

    While I think it is wrong morally, and very hurtful to family and loved ones, if he wants to blow his brains out, let the man do it.

    How is an armed response going to stop someone bent on suicide?

    It won't.

    It is the right response to first take steps to protect others. Then help Mr crazy if you can. A bean bag or two vs suicide is the right thing in MHO.

    That is what I understood happended when I read the article.

    You guys would bash the cops whatever they do. You make my point well.

    I have been lurking here long enough to know how you feel about cops. Go BS someone else.

    KUDOS!

    Then you should know that I am currently active duty military.
    So, by your logic, why am I not above reproach? Why do I not deserve your undying loyalty and support regardless of the legality or morality of my actions?

    I don't want that kind of blind retarded respect.

    Respect is earned by showing that you deserve it. It's lost when you show that you don't deserve it.

    Its common sense. Something you seem to be either lacking or ignoring.

    So, why is it that officers who abuse the rights of citizens are above reproach?

    Martin Luther King Jr. Once said
    "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

    I would love to highlight, these words, "..but by the content of their character..."

    By the content of their character mr. cow, the content of their character.

    Some of these officers don't deserve all the respect of spitting in their face, based on the content of their character.

    Others deserve, and receive my respect, and not a damn one of them ever asked for it.

    They earned it. They maintain it.

    By the content of their character mr cow, not by anything else, including their damn career choice.
