    An eloquent lesson. 'Nuff said.


    I wonder, though. Did he actually pull the gun, go for the gun, or otherwise threaten the cop in any way? Unless the unedited/unadulterated film of the exchange is published, we'll likely never know.

    Wise words.....We had a couple of converted revolver pellet guns turn up in the UK, been converted to fire .38.....So what did the labour party do I hear you ask???? they banned them, they turned them into a section 5 weapon (same class as a machine gun) and if you had one you could apply for a firearm certificate to keep (a lot of effort, bit like a class III licence)
    The importer said they had brought in 55000, only 10000 were put on cert.
    Some kid or father who brought one, put it in the attic and forgot about it, could now get a 10 year prison sentence for Possession

    No doubt the TV channal Mayor will go down the same route

    Just a helpful suggestion... in the name of your personal health and safety, try to refrain from pointing any gun-shaped objects at me...

    My thoughts as well. You've got to be pretty dumb to engage cops with real guns with a pellet gun. Remember Dialo (did I spell that right). There was no gun. Still got killed.

    Well when he looks in the mirror in the morning he'll get a constant reminder of how stupid he is.

    Bound to happen? It has happened before and will happen again. Sad? How about stupid.
