    Simulated Purse Snatching Goes Off the Rails - Detroit

    One has to wonder what was going through the DPD management's mind when they decided to stage a purse snatching at a local gas station. Geez, what could possibly go wrong with that idea?



    The cops decide to simulate a purse snatching in Detroit and have a local TV station film it. An off duty FBI agent is pumping gas and chases the perp down with gun drawn. Fortunately, other cops intervened before he caught up with the "perp".

    If you are going to do this kind of thing, at least do it in one of the gun free zones, that way you know the only people that would have guns are criminals are are not likely to try to assist in the stopping of a crime.

    Even if it were a GFZ, the FBI guy would still have been armed. They were trying to do it out in public to gage the veracity and reactions of "witnesses". They did a poor job of controlling the environment and a controlled environment would not have accomplished the intended purpose. Bad idea all the way around.

    ~snip from article:
    "You had citizens who could've been hurt. A lot of people out here have CPLs now and carry weapons. They're tired of the crime that's going on in Detroit, and they might want to stand up and help somebody that's in this type of situation. It just so happened it's a gas station where the FBI fills up all their vehicles," Gargalino said.
    ~

    Scenario: CPL holder acts quicker or unbeknownst to standing officers and shoots. I can picture many bad things happening in the next 10 seconds of that one. At least someone addressed the fact, (maybe even enlightened some) that there are citizens out there who are willing and able to act. Wonder if any more hackles stood on end when that one was brought up?

    There was apparently one main thing missing the "Benny Hill" chase music

    The problem is some people have slight ego problems and they all want to be on tv. Sometimes the emotion interferes with judgement and logical decision making.
