A day in L.A. Ca. #2
I thought I would keep the masses up to date on shootings etc. Well it seems like a poor aggressive officer(s) stopped a car chase and the guy would not get out of the cab. It took about 5 officers to pull him out including one officer doing his best to repeatably hit the guy with a flashlight to make him move. The LA police commission has said the police will be provided with smaller flashlights to discontinue this practice. You may recall a short time ago I told about the commission setting new rules where police officers may not shoot at people in moving vehicles coming at them they have to move. Seems I read the other week an officer maybe didn't get the word and blam, blam(good for him).
Do you think carry small arms by police officers is dangerious to the community??? hmmmmmmm!!!
The freeway sport of driving up on a car during daylight hours and shooting the driver has started again. We have had about 3 of them with the shooter being different or I should say the gun used is different. When its said in text like this it is very bland and fails to show the wrecked car, dead person and blood all over. The persons family has to be in terrible shape.
In other community around LA we saeem to be having a few more people shooting police officers over standoffs etc. So far I don't think we lost any but wounded a few.
As you slide down the banister of life,
May the splinters never point the wrong way.

If they continue to tie police officers' hands, eventually they will find themselves without police officers. THEN maybe California will have to churn out the CCW permits to prevent total chaos until they can repeal all of the foolish restrictions on the police. :doh (2):

Prospector, I agree. The mentality is cops are doing "too much" or "too little" - never "enough."
And now there's a small movement to ban police from using Tasers, because there have been a few Taser-related deaths. Apparently for some folks, "less lethal" translates into "100% nonlethal."

Cops can't do anything right. One of the things that always bugged me was our instructors telling us ,"It's not if, but when you get sued, and what you lose over it."
Pretty happy now that I hurt myself and didn't finish the academy. I'm 29, and I've paid off my mortgage. Why would I risk that to play Cops and Robbers?
Or maybe I've just gotten selfish since my daughter came around....
Athough, now that I'm in Oregon, things seem different here, so who knows.....
Might be a cop yet....
