I've been in the same number of gunfights you've been in. ZERO. I grew up with guns and was a competitive shooter.

I was born in this state. I didn't immigrate here.

Jk I forgot they could pepper spray the perpís legs and hope you can subdue him. If that doesnít work last resort tase them in the arm that always works 100% of the time

A Conroe PD officer was shot at during a traffic stop-he wasnt. dude took off and apparently had drugs in the car that they found. They got a picture of his face off the body cam, asked the public help identifying him, which they did(Raymond Cole Lynch) and last i heard they were still looking for him. I will know more tomorrow though.

Just saying, the current atmosphere is making every LEO a bit jumpy. Everyone is going to point fingers at everyone else and Opinions will remain just that,opinions.

This is why I said what I said. 0 common sense. An unarmed man can beat a person to death . But the cop shouldn't use deadly force because he's unarmed? that. Be a decent human being, follow orders and stop trying to cause problems. Funny how liberals are so worried about police violence but don't say a word about black in black violence. For example. Chicago. Look up a guy on pcp

Yup, you spout as if you know me. Truth is YOU are talking out of your because of a personal difference.

I get it, you own a ton of weapons. You use a Moto board to sling your weapons and spew your knowledge about them. So be it...

And Iíll stand by my stance, slaughtering unarmed citizens is bullshit. Funny how all across the world most civilized nations have unarmed LEO. Those cops donít need bullets to maintain order

Truth is, you and others seems to have some type of racial agenda. Iíve watched YOURS and many other posts throughout the years. If someone was to do a profile on just MH posts alone, what do you think it would say about yourself. Think about it.

I donít know you, truth is I really donít like you. , other than weapons you donít contribute anything other than snide and personal attack comments.

With that said, how about you just go your own way? The ones I banter with I know personally. You just keep to your keyboard and carry on.

BYE

I got a couple questions...

In "the moment", do you think the cop in the original video knew the other guy was unarmed?
Do you think the cop knew the other guy wouldn't attack him with weapons OR barehanded?
Do you think the cop knew the history of this other man? Knew why he had his pants down? Knew why he wouldn't comply when he told him to stop?

Do you think the cop might have been concerned the man that is continually advancing, inspite of having a gun pointed at him, just might be unstable enough to attack?
And IF the cop was concerned the guy might attack him, armed or not, do you think the cop has a right to defend himself? Doesn't the cop have a right to use deadly force to protect himself if he fears for his safety?

Or do you think the cop should be willing to risk injury, that he should wait until he is ACTUALLY attacked before he initiate any defense?

What if the other guy had some disease? He could have bitten the cop (and ask around, that happens all the time)

Maybe the guy has combat training, the cop doesn't have any way to know.

Maybe the cop just wants to go home and spend time with his kids and NOT have to spend hours in the Emergency Room, or risk a broken arm or catching some nastiness from a crazed guy...

The 1st cop most likely is going through a load of legal bullshit. Not to mention a career limiting by poor judgment. Most likely he will be in some sort of retraining. Letís not mention the ridicule he will receive for killing a man with pants around his ankles. (Most likely via his peers)
Stun guns, pepper spray, a baton and last resort physical takedown measures.

Cop who took multiple shots who started shooting with a cell phone in hand needs further training also.

LEO who shot the kid in his own backyard needs to be in prison. That is murder.

Yeah, everybody wants to say the cops should always use a Tazer.
There['s a problem with that idea. Tazers don't always work.

They require that both of the barbs stick in your skin. If anything, a little clothing, a patch, anything deflects one, it doesn't work. You only get one shot. If it fails you, as the cop, are screwed.

Do you have time to drop the Tazer and grab your pistol, get it on target and shoot? maybe, maybe not.

Pepper spray would have been a viable option, maybe. We didn't see and don't know everything. Can't say why the cop didn't go for pepper spray.

Baton is a good way to get hurt bad. Not a good option. Bad guy just might take it away from you and beat YOUR .

Bottom line is... you didn't address any of the questions I asked. As usual, because there is no basis for what you are saying.

If you donít like fire, donít be a fireman.

If you canít fix a car, donít be a mechanic.

If you donít like blood, donít be a surgeon.

If you donít like water, donít be a lifeguard.

If you donít think there is certain risks to be a cop, donít be one.

It's all in where you draw the line. People like you want to paint the world as though it's black and white. Everything is clear and can be summed up in cute little phrases.

You think firemen love fire? That's a pretty odd thought.
You think firemen should be willing to run into a blast furnace?

Should a lifeguard be willing to jump into a tsunami? Ridiculous.

Just like a cop, the fireman and the life guard are people. They don't want to die, , they don't want to be hurt, because they put on a uniform and earned a paycheck.

Would you sacrifice your life for your job?
