    Good and Scary: Armed Robber Chase

    Just saw this on CNN. Typical Armed robber shoots at police giving chase and is finally cornered and killed by officers.

    Whats scary to me is when they get the get a way vehicle off the road. Watch the officer that gets out of the white SUV. When shots are being fired everywhere he can't get his gun out of the holster.

    Me thinks his should go spend some time at the range practicing his draws before he ends up getting killed. I understand the adrenalin must have been going into overdrive but damn!

    This dirtbag got his just rewards......next!

    As for the LEO with trouble drawing his weapon?
    That's what happens if you don't develop muscle memory for using your level 1, 2, or 3 retention holster.

    I appreciate the sacrifice the Robber did in saving the State all that money for lawyers, courts, and prisons.
    $10 worth of ammo, a couple of dented fenders and some swift justice took care of a very expensive problem.

    Not to mention the Most Excellent Training Video Law Enforcement got about how NOT TO EXIT your Police Vehicle for a gun fight.

    And the TV shows will undoubtedly rerun this Wildest Police Chase for years assuring Ret. Sherriff John Bunnell a secure future in the TV Bizz.

    I give this two thumbs up.

    Thank goodness all LEOs are OK.

    BG thankfully was spraying ammo and not aiming.

    This was truly a dangerous place to be.

    The cop with the cameras training sure kicked in.
    You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
    You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
    However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
    1) Call someone with a gun.
    2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man

    I am glad the LEOs are ok. But I do not think it is acceptable that a LEO shall have problems when drawing his weapon. He could have risked not only his life, but the other LEOs too.
