    UPDATED: 4:07 pm EDT July 22, 2009
    AURORA, Colo. -- A Denver police officer has been charged with felony menacing for allegedly brandishing his gun at a McDonald's restaurant after getting tired of waiting for his food.
    Derrick Curtis, 29, Saunders also face charges of prohibited use of a weapon, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct.
    An employee at the Aurora restaurant told investigators that two Denver police officers were waiting for their food at the drive-through window May 21 when one grew impatient and pulled his gun.
    No one was injured.
    Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson told The Denver Post that Saunders had been suspended with pay and would be put on unpaid leave once the department is formally notified of the charges.

    He should have waited until they actually started to hand over the food. Then it would have been self-defense.
    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.

    Wait a minute. Aren't they the guys with the super-secret-double-naught-spy training that makes them eminently more qualified to carry a gun than regular folks?

    Oh I'm sorry. Was my sarcasm showing?

    What everyone dont know that cops are QUALIFIED to point guns in between peoples eyes. HA ten they get all pissy when the see a Citizen with a holstered gun and get sand in there underwear. Sorry I would feel much safer if I saw a average citizen carrying in a holster then a friggen crazy azz police officer with a gun between someone eyes.

    Living near Denver for a number of years, it seems like there is always some kind of investigation going on with one of their officers for doing something stupid.

    Imagine this...No cops! Well maybe One like a sheriff or maybe a Marshall. that's all that is needed to show up after the crime has been committed, or thwarted. Lets face it one, one hundred, even a thousand officers, can thwart all or even half the crimes committed in a day.
    At any time a community is just an incident away from kaos. Only an armed citizenry can keep a community as safe as safe can be. Statisticaly over 1.5 million crimes are thawrted by reegular citizens per year, and with only a shot fired in a micro amount of them.

    Well, for my two cents worth ....I always say..."Police officers are men first" therefore they are human and make mistakes. Problem is when they make a mistake it's usually covered up or their union protects them. I have several friends that are Law Enforcement or used to be. It is a thankless job but it's something they are sworn to do.....just sayin

    true.

    This mistake is a pretty idiotic one, but idiocy can be found in any profession.

    In days past I've found myself riding in an unmarked car with one county detective and two city detectives, drinking beer (Nearly a case each) and throwing the bottles out at road signs along the expressway. When the bottles were gone they started to shoot at the signs as we passed them at well over one hundred mph. Now I know that this does'nt happen every day but these are the guys that are sworn to protect and serve right? They got chummy with me after I painted one guys car and he introduced the other two to me that happened to be hot rod fans as well. It was not a professional relationship and they never even fished for any kind of information from me. Thew were just off the hook guys that really should have worked in a factory or something. No offense to factory workers. The meaning is that they shouldn't be sworn above the law.

    That worked about 150 years ago. It would not fly in Chicago, Detroit, or NYC. Hell, it wouldn't work in Lansing.

    This is the 21st century, robbers don't ride into town on horseback, and the only telegrams that get sent today are moneygrams. No cops=anarchy, plain and simple.

    Imagine instead, a system where everyone is treated EQUALLY under the law, from the President on down. THAT would make much more sense.

    Oh, one more point. It's really a pet peeve of mine, but this thread should be titled "LEOs and THEIR guns."

    Your being to picky. Wears the harm in it?

    What do you have against...(wait for it)...homophones?

    Yes, yes, it's very homophonous of Al to comment on that.

    Well, you know how it is, you let one homophone in, and the next thing you know, there goes the neighborhood.
