    A man that knows how to use his hands.

    Hands are for more than just writing reports.

    A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    Yes, but even a "Stupid Cop" can write you a ticket for being "Stupid in a No Stupid Zone".

    Classic example of acute victim selection failure.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    Man, I like this guy. I'm sure when the BG saw him praying over him it freaked him out more, must have thought he was going to get finished off.

    Go Officer Thalassites, good job sir!

    This story reinforces the old saying: "It's not the size of the dog that matters in a fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog." Way to go for this old-timer who proved that at 85 years old he is a very tough man. What a great inspiration for younger officers.
