    Maybe some cops should not have guns, eh?

    (Question: What would happen to a private citizen who pulled a gun in this kind of situation?)

    (Another Question: What would happen to an armed citizen who, seeing a guy exit acar with a drawn gun, moving toward a crowd of snowball throwers, fired to stop what might "reasonably" appear to a "reasonable person" to be a deadly attack about to happen?)

    This incident has “bad” written all over it.

    "Throw another snowball, throw another snowball"

    Oddly, reminds me of Samuel L Jackson, in the movie "S.W.A.T."

    He isn't commanding them to get down on the ground, or anything remotely happen if a LEO were to pull a gun. Instead he is provoking and talking "smack" waving a gun around. WTF!

    Another thing I hate more than a bad LEO, is one that just stands by and does nothing.

    If only Sheriff Leftler were there, he would have reported his ass and testified in court to get rid of him.

    Edited to change Samuel's middle initial from "J" to "I"! Whoops.



    Been harassed by the police? Yelled at by the anti-gun neighbors? Mother doesn't approve?

    Then this is the place for you! Click here to get back at them!

    - I think the base premise here, is something many (especially politicians and officials) have forgotten: Simply that "POLICE ARE HUMANS" and will act, react, respond, reply, rebuke, lie, cheat and steal, or perhaps consider themselves bound by honor, love, hate, feel happy, sad, angry, get stressed and act stupid, or may keep a level head... well... about the same as ANY OF US MORTALS...
    - So the moral (and lesson) of this story, in my eyes at least, is that they too should be held to the same moral and professional standard as the rest of us. SO if "We the people" would get into trouble for it, then they should too... and if they can get off easy for that level of "mistake" or outburst, then we should too. ALL MEN (women too) ARE CREATED EQUAL -- So treat them/us equal in our justifications and consequences.

    - This situation is a really bad scene, and that guy, in my humble opinion, should not be a enforcing any law.

    But I thought police "are" the law. Pun very intended!

    It's one of those things that points out the complete cognitive dissonance of the following two political statements:

    "Some people are bad, so we have to keep guns away from all of them."
    "Some cops are bad, but they're a minority so we just have to live with it."

    Given some atrocious gun handling and accuracy from some LEO's I'd say, "Yes".

    Isn't this the THIRD posting about this gun-pulling cop and snowball?

    ...We get it.
    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." -John Stuart Mill

    And why do people keep posting it in the Washington state forum? Didn't this happen in DC?

    I visited a friend in Florida. You wouldn't believe how many times I had to tell people, "The OTHER Washington".
