I missed the part about onea the perps showing up with gunshot wounds,I am glad the LEO was able to put the hurt on the attackers and wish he would have come out unscathed.
The problem with this Country is our Prisons are full of repeat violent felons.I'm not talking about guys doing time for felony drugs,I'm talking about rapists armed robbers murderers,Nobody should have an extensive rap sheet,they should get at the most 3 violent felonies and then they get put out permanently,and if they all happen during one incident tough doodoo.I will be willing to bet there wouldn't be any prison overcrowding
It's too bad we follow some of the provisions of the Geneva Convention. Some things outlined in it are relevant, but many things are not. Winning requires the ability to do whatever it takes to survive. The last nation standing rights the history books after all. It's certain provisions within that document that require us to use less effective ammunition for the primary weapons for our soldiers after all. We use better (more effective) ammunition for SD and hunting in this nation every day of every year, and have been for many years now.
I think many Americans have lost sight of what it takes to keep our freedom. That fact will get us killed as a nation at some point.
As far as career filth being killed in the commission of a crime, I too like hearing those stories. Why? The first of the two juries I sat on I gave some scumbag his 27th felony conviction after he tried to kill a man by stabbing him to death. I had to settle for the lesser charge because some of the other jurors felt sorry for the guy because he had a "disability" that he used to garner sympathy. How we can tolerate career filth in this nation who live on the law abiding peoples' dime is beyond me. We should have set limit and you're force fed a lead diet policy after you hit that level. The money this nation as a whole would save is tremendous.
My second trial was a civil one, where a family had a history of scamming other people and getting money/property. Criminals yet again. I can't stand people like that. They spend more time thinking of ways to cheat people when they could just work an honest job and live an honest life.
I work hard to have what I have, and I take pride in that fact. That's the way my parents taught my brother and I to live. That's how they were taught to live. That's the lifestyle that is losing ground in this nation, and that is a damn shame.
Because Police officers, corrections officer, parole/probation officers and some federal agents are more likely to run into someone who wants to do them harm. During an officers career they may take a life or cause a prison sentence, and may more likely be a victim of revenge. The same reason police carry firearms off duty. How do I know?... It happened to me.

Good thing that Bush signed HR218 in 2004 or that Det would have had to go unarmed to Florida.
There is no hidden meaning in my comment simply, your comment is not accurate and honestly has elitist over tones, your follow-up reads just as elitist. That said God bless those who chose to work in law enforcement, God bless us all.Quote:
Nonsense he would just have to conform to what we mortals do and get a FL CCW
I'm in this camp on this one!
And behind ret 100%.
They CHOOSE to prey on the unsuspecting, the weak, the old and the young.
When they die at the hands of an honest citizen, I believe it is THEY who chose their own destiny, much the same as everyone who leads an honest and decent life.
They should garner NO sympathy from anyone.
Society did not force them to behave in such a mannner.
Ret is not rejoicing in the fact that they are dead, he is merely stating that its good that society will no longer be subjected to the actions of an uncivil thug, who neither cares whether you lived or died,only that they did not have to work hard for what the took from others.
