Well, yeah, everywhere. Why do you ...

Well, yeah, everywhere. Why do you think ex-cops keep their badges handy? To get out of speeding tickets and other cop friendly activity.

Brandishing? No cop will arrest an ex-cop for brandishing.

Wallace repeatedly denied shooting at the thieves, but eventually handed over the gun he had hidden, saying "here is what you are looking for," according to an arrest warrant affidavit.
Mr. Wallace was stupid.....he shot at a fleeing vehicle and then denied it when questioned by the police.

My point was that this ex-cop got away with this...but if the punks had fled, he could NOT HAVE SHOT AT THEM. His bluff worked, but it was bluff. Folks need to remember the consequences of shooting at fleeing criminals.

I don't believe it was a bluff, but his training and experience. It is no different than active uniformed officers ordering felons from a vehicle with drawn weapons. The drawn weapons are for defense against a threat justifying lethal force, should one arise, not to bluff the felons out of the vehicle. How the felons take it is on them. Shooting at them if they flee is a whole different matter.

This is 100% true. He would have been charged with a serious felony if he fired at the subjects while fleeing.
