    According to the Washington Post, one guard called the other 'retarded'.

    Oh yeah, that is so worth taking shots at someone over

    I think shooting someone over who was paying for lunch would have been a better reason.

    According to the libtards, we should disarm because professionals such as these are trained to guard our security.

    These guys are rent-a-cops from some contractor. They were not DOD police.

    That's messed up. What do you do as a civilian in a situation like that.(Other than take cover) Both guys are in an official looking uniform (assumption) and shooting. You can't possibly know what's going on and render any kind of assistance. How do you protect your family? Any ideas?

    Take cover, get the family around the corner, call 911 report the facts..don't even attempt to intervene..taking shots at uniforms, even if they are shooting at each other, is probably a very good way to get shot. I'd prefer not to go home perforated.

    Let them kill each other. If they succeed the gene pool will be twice as clean as it used to be.

    I absolutly agree. When the real cops showed up, I wouldn't want to be the odd man out. You know they would assume you were the BG.

    Two uniforms shooting at each other?

    I think I'd pry up a tile and try to hide underneath it.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    That just shows that he was retarded. Too slow in the head to not know that you don't shoot your "partner".
