    The regular guy may encounter it but LEO do deal with it all of the time. From experience it's not the person that called the Police that he remembers, it's the cop that locked them up. Post it up all you want but there is a big difference between calling the Police and actually incarcerating someone, especially someone who doesn't want to go. Please don't try turning this into your "CCW versus LEO" platform.

    No disrespect to CCW's but I don't think you truly experience this the way LEO does on such a regular basis. I have found that domestic violence arrests are the most common that I come across. They are usually substance dependent, volatile, resistent to arrest and have already proven that they have a propensity for violence. Add to that the fact that you now are ruining their lives and taking away their children/home and it just a little hair raising when you encounter them in public.

    Like I said before this is why our situational awareness is high and we can usually pick out other LEO based on this observation.

    Go ahead PJ...

    heck its not just LEO's, while they run into way more than any average joe will, normal people have this problem too. I was a bouncer for 2 years in a rougher area of phoenix. Bobby will be getting out of prison this year. (6yrs) He knows I put him there and he's dumb enough to come after me. (if he can find me). Anyone who has been a witness to a crime in a small community will probably have to deal with it.

    This is a great thread. I apparently missed the one about LEO's (work has been a bear recently.

    LEO are going to run into more scum more often. A lot more often.

    But how about the idea that the scum, who we agree are more observant- - trust me, I KNOW in my line of work that some of them, at least are (some aren't), are going to KNOW an LEO is likely not to be as easy a target.

    They will see an easier payoff, more bang for the buck, more return for effort expended with less risk, in retaliating against a non-LEO witness.

    They may have a greater need of arms than the LEO just because of that, weird though it seems.

    i do agree that not just LEO's can get repercussions (like bouncers and such) but i think as a whole, it would be the higher statistic.
    What's this button do?
