    Hope I could have remained as calm as the officer did.

    It took a six-woman jury one hour to make its ruling following nearly five hours of testimony.
    It took that long to debate the obvious?

    Below is from the story.

    Hamilton officer cleared in fatal shooting during January traffic stop

    The click of the revolver's hammer hitting a previously fired round was audible in the recording.

    Yea, there is NO doubt about intent of the drunk perp here. Ironic to think that the cop was probably saved by this guy being drunk in this one

    WOW that cop had an angel on his side on that one. CLICK...I would have needed new undies.

    Thumbs down

    Here's something from a real MORON who wants LEO's to shoot only arms and legs...

    ALBANY -- A bill in the Assembly would change drastically police policy in New York State in the way officers use their weapons.

    The bill, sponsored by Assemblywoman Annette Robinson (D-Bedford-Stuyvesant), would instruct police and peace officers to use their weapons only with the intent to stop and not to kill a person.

    “There is no justification for terminating another's life when a less extreme measure may accomplish the same objective,” states a memo that accompanies the bill.

    Officers would instead be instructed to try to shoot a suspect in the arm or the leg.

    “In recent years, the killing of criminal suspects by police has focused the public attention on how police respond when the suspect is a member of an ethnic minority,” the memo states. “The issue is highly controversial, with critics accusing the police of racism while supporters deny any racism and assert that the killings have been in good faith or an unfortunate mistake.”

    And officer who did kill with that intent would not be penalized, according to the proposed legislation.

    Police work is guided by the use of force continuum.

    Lethal force, according to the National Institute of Justice, should only be used “if a suspect poses a serious threat to the officer or another individual.”

    I wish I had an Uzi when I went to high school and had to wait for a bus and take the subway in Bedford-Stuyvesant. That was 50 years ago. I'm sure it has gotten a lot better since then...NOT

    In a politician's fantasy world of ideas, yes it's perfectly acceptable for those who put their lives on the line everyday. Why do you think they proposed a new combat ribbon for our soldiers, who when they come under fire, for not shooting back?
