    He shouldn't have drawn his gun, but I hope he doesn't get in too much trouble with his department.

    He's a good example of someone that's too stoopid to be a cop.

    The punk who threw the snowball at the detective should be charged with battery on a law enforcement officer. And the others should be charged with criminal mischief.

    It's a snowball for crying out loud.
    We used to drop water balloons on the local cops on a regular basis.

    I've been hit with snowballs dozens of times and never waved a gun around. Threw a few back...

    That's one of the problem with modern Cities, too many laws, kids can't have any fun and people who should be behind bars, are cops.

    You can still have fun without throwing snowballs at other peoples vehicles. If I was driving down the road and someone threw a snowball at my car, I would stop and hunt them down (but I wouldn't draw my gun :P).

    When the cops were driving by in the hood, we used to loudly vocalize the question: "What's a dirty penny made out of?"

    Then we would SHOUT the answer.....and run like hell through back yards and alleys.

    Pi**ed them off...

    They caught by buddy once.

    Could be worse. We always had an annual walnut fight with the freshmen at Bridgewater college. those little things hurt.
    In those days, the freshmen had to wear beanies. One would get snatched and the war would begin.

    Bridgewater had one cop...Harvey AKA Officer larda$$.

    He'd get pelted and go find something else to do. Then tell your parents:X:X

    Actually, the people throwing snowballs at the cars could be charged with a Class 4 felony (18.2-154)for throwing missles. If any of those snow & ice balls were directed at the officer, he may have felt in more danger than we can understand now after the fact.

    In either case, it will be interesting to see how the investigation pans out....

    IT WAS A SNOWBALL FIGHT, NOT A GUN FIGHT!!

    The LEO was off duty in a POV. He drove into a snowball fight that was already going on and his car was hit. HE then got out and went after people. His clear intent was to scare people because they hit his Hummer with a snowball.

    This guy has no business possessing a firearm, as he does not have the maturity to determine when or how it is appropriate to use it. It took a second LEO drawing his sidearm to calm this guy down. What would have happened if that second LEO had not been on the scene and taken control of this idiot?

    There are plenty of stable citizen available to take this guys position on the force. After the investigation he should be dismissed.

    anybody ever hear of dents or windows being broken by snow/iceballs?? I would get highly upset with someone throwing snowballs at my Hummer. They should have been charged with vandalism on the Hummer, then assault on the officer, SANS handgun, unless, of course, they resisted arrest!!!

    It was not just a snowball fight...

    It was upwards of 100+ people committing a felony assault against him and whatever other motorists got caught in it. The group was doing one of those "flash mob" activities which by their poor choice this time involved assaulting other people. The detective was hit in the face at least once that we saw on tape. I heard someone yell "F$%^. You pig!" at least twice in the video.

    LIke I said earlier, it will be interesting to see how this plays out...

    I was too progressive. I could never get the idea of baptism by water balloon across to the powers that be.

    I guess not. You should have stuck around. Then you could have taken the Making Them Drink Kool-Aid seminar.

    Might've helped your forum argumentation, too.

    Maybe not...

    Well, maybe you argue but you're from Joisey.:P

    OK, here's where I am on this....

    A bunch of GROWN-UPs decided to have snowball fight, not in a school yard or football field, but in a major intersection of Washington, DC. An intersection that is less than a block from the 2nd District police station, is at the corner of a DC Gov't buidling, and yards from a fire station. Less than three blocks away there is a HS, a rec center w/field, and another elementary school w/field.

    Should the cop have drawn his weapon - no; he should have identified himself to the group and told them to disperse. If his vehicle - or his body - had been hit by snowball, chances of finding the "thrower" is about the same as that snowball last in Hades for micro-second.

    But the bottomline, despite the "good ole days" of snowball fights.... these were ADULTs doing something stupid in a rather public place and no one deserves to have a snowball tossed at their vehicle or person - if they are NOT part of the group. Put the guy on desk-duty for a month, have em take some classes and get him back on the streets to do some good; lawd knows DC needs it with all the crime up there.

    Well said. That pretty much sums up my feelings about the incident.
