    I don't care how many cops there are in any city, they still can't protect you everywhere you go. We should all be able to "arm ourselves, and protect ourselves" without the ******** we have to go through.

    Yeah, but in this case, *one cop to patrol 750 sq. miles?* Might as well have no police protection! I'm ok with that, as long as I'm allowed to keep my arsenal.

    I'm a little concerned by that. Imo, there should be a 2nd officer to be somewhere in the area of the first...750 sq miles means back up could be a LONG way away.

    I don't think I'd take that job. Good thing they're not beating down my door and asking, eh?

    I dunno about Ohio, but in California a police officer can recruit anybody to assist in bringing a criminal to justice. I'm willing to bet that law hasn't been used in forever though. I think it's CPC 150, but I think there's another section somewhere else that describes it more. Maybe near the powers of arrest section(s).

    Isn't that called a posse? Saddle up boys, it's back to the wild west.
    A citizen may not be required to offer a ―good and substantial reason-- why he should be permitted to exercise his rights. The right‘s existence is all the reason he needs.

    And the Antis said it was gun owners that would turn things into the Old West. Me thinks its all the liberal spending by our Gov. Notice it's the police that is cut first. Why not cut State and Fed spending so the people of the county can afford police.
    Don't confuse me with the facts, I have my emotions!

    I guess that's the difference between no crime and "stopping" a crime in progress. I prefer no crime.

    About 9 years ago I had a Turlock PD Sgt ask me to assist him while making contact with a man passed out drunk in his car. I knew the man in question, and knew that he had a criminal record, including drunk driving. I also knew the man to frequently bring up that he would "never go quietly again" when talking about his prior arrest.

    Fortunately, the situation was resolved without my getting too involved.

    Doesn't happen terribly often, but around here at least the old-school LEOs know the average guy has their back.
