    The LEO in "Now this is a LEO encounter"...

    In the thread: http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...-LEO-encounter the officer identifies himself as Officer Lyons, Oceanside Police Department, badge # 1093. A little Googling reveals that the officer is Officer Matthew J. Lyons, author of "Oceanside Police Department."

    Per the following website (http://www.police-writers.com/matthew_lyons.html):

    "Matthew J. Lyons, a corporal on the Oceanside Police Department (California) and former Marine is the author of Oceanside Police Department. According to the book description, “The Oceanside Police Department has provided a century of service to a community that has grown from a small seaside resort—doubling as a bedroom community for the U.S. Marine Corps’s nearby Camp Pendleton—into a city of more than 170,000 people. City marshals patrolled Oceanside from 1888 to 1906, and it is indicative of the city’s formative years that the first lawman, former Texas Ranger Charlie Wilson, was also the first to be killed in the line of duty.

    "The photographs in this remarkable collection inventory the department’s past, covering the administrations of city marshal J. Keno Wilson (Charlie Wilson’s brother), Chiefs Charles Goss, Ward Ratcliff, and others. Showcased are images from the archives of the Oceanside Police Department and the collection of Delores Davis Sloan, the daughter of former captain Harold B. Davis, Oceanside’s top cop of the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s.

    "Matthew J. Lyons has donated the royalties from his book to the National Law Enforcement Officer Memorial Fund."

    What a talented officer!!

    Truly a class act. Many others could learn from him.

    Doesn't the fact that he's a former Marine kinda say it all?

    Let's not go too far jsmindwarp!! LOL. Seriously though, I thought the officer did a terrific job and was more than professional in his dealings with Jeremy. I think Jeremy could have unwedged his undies and acted a little more human rather than give the impression that he's reading off a script. If all police officers were like this we would be a much happier and safer community!!

    It would have been nice if the City had acknowledged the many letters sent in praising the way this officer responded when he was tested by Jeremy.

    once a Marine always a Marine, never knew of a discharged Marine to use the word former. Just like the word "can't" is not in there vocabulary.

    But yes, he is a class act that some could learn from.

    I would have to say the cop did a OK job, except for one thing. If the man is OCing and has done nothing wrong then there is no need or Law to see his ID. The part to see if he is a felon does not apply as a person is considered innocent until proven guilty. Thus unless there was a law being broken then there is no RS or PC to investigate much less check for ID to run him.
