Want to ban guns? Start with the cops. Most ruthless misusers of deadly force out there.

What's the first thing they do with an officer when he discharges a service weapon? Give him paid administrative leave. Why wouldn't a cop come out with his service revolver blazing?

Was talking to my little internet buddy about this a couple hours ago. She lives in Philadelphia. She said this was pretty much a normal reaction for the cops in that town.

Simply put, cops are assholes. They're assholes because they're cops, and they're cops because they're assholes. Police departments aren't in the business of employing decent, honest, gentlemanly people. They're in the business of employing the jagoffs who built up their practice on thumping elementary school kids for their lunch money and lighting firecrackers up kittens asses when they were teenagers.

Just think, if it wasn't for government employment, these folks would be running around in the streets without anyone telling them what to do.

Not just revenge, as they didn't kill me, but a complete and utter ruin of their legacy. Unearth every skeleton they bury (probably literally), undermine their every arrest with top-end pro-boner lawyering, and help their daughters do what will break their daddy's heart with a fat scholarship to an all minority liberal arts college.

My elderly mother dialed 911 by accident one time, and hung up. Cop came to our door, as they do when someone calls 911 and hangs up. They want to be sure there wasn't trouble that kept the person from completing the call, which is nice. What was a little disturbing is that, as I called my mother to the door to talk to the officer, he heard my dog bark and put his hand on his gun.

My dog is a chihuahua.

Kind of worrisome to be living your life, just like you always do, and then a cop comes to your door and puts his hand on his gun. I'm glad he was just being cautious and not some trigger-happy jerk. What's scary about cops is how much trust we put in them, and how badly they can fark us over, should they choose to.

Sorry, but your own words prove you're an idiot.

Nice snip! You must have a job at NBC.

/and even after removing most of the context, you still can't make it say anything similar to "owning a gun stops them randomly beating the shiat out of you"
//gonna have to replace some words... maybe swapping "is for less inclined" with "is too terrified," and "part of their job" with "favorite hobby that they randomly do to everybody else"
///or maybe just learn reading comprehension, if you can


You really are mentally incompetent, aren't you?

Here, let me add the "context" back in. Not that it changed what you said in any way -- just saved folks reading some more nonsense.

Here, I'll even bold the context for you.

Tatterdemalian: I have a gun, and the cops know I have a gun. We both know that if it ever comes to a shootout, I'm going to lose, but the chance I might get a lucky shot off first and kill one of their own means that even the most sadistic and violent "bad cop" on the force is far less inclined to go straight to the intimidation and beating part of their job with me than they are with someone who's known to be completely unarmed and won't even let his/her children engage in acts of pretend violence.


You still said that you believe the cop "is far less inclined to go straight to the intimidation", and you still said that the reason for that nonsensical idea is because "I have a gun, and the cops know I have a gun. the chance I might get a lucky shot off first and kill one of their own".

That is little different to my briefer, less rambling (but no less nonsensical, since it's your viewpoint) paraphrase that you believed "owning a gun stops [the police] randomly beating the shiat out of you".

But please, do enlighten me as to how the "context" changes what you said. Because remember, YOU said it.

Or, more likely, they'll go straight to shooting you without wasting time on the tazering that they'd have done with the unarmed person before deciding if a bit of shooting was needed. But hey, whatever makes you feel good about yourself.


See, that's the thing... I don't consider cops, even the bad ones, to be scenery-chewing Darth Vader styled supervillains. I think they're people like me, doing a job they like a little too much, or screwing it up a little too often, but not out to gun anyone down because they're pants-wetting scared of any armed threat to their authority.

These cops are bad at their job and should feel bad. First off it was cops, in the plural, so....

One cop draws his service weapon and has it ready. The second cop takes out his nightstick or baton and takes a swing at the more aggressive dog of the pair. If you miss and whack the other dog by mistake, take another swing. If the aggressive dog attacks you, retreat and have your partner shoot it by all means.

Personally, oh great now I sound like an ITG, I'm not terrible bothered by the idea of grabbing a pit bull type of dog that is engaged with another dog. The pitt bull isn't paying attention to me and I'm stronger than it, get control of the muzzle, pin it with my weight, profit. Especially when I have a partner there to fend off the smaller dog it was attacking (in case the smaller dog decides to keep fighting). Also most dogs, even if they are aggressive to other dogs, are not so aggressive when they have 160+ pounds worth of human on them and a human's hand on their throat. If the dog is mangy or appears to be a feral, I would definitely think twice about grabbing it, but if it is on the leash and shows signs of human ownership, I'd consider it. You come in from benefit, get a hand on the throat and muzzle and slam the dog down onto the ground, that tends to end shiat quickly.

"If your only tool is a hammer, you treat every problem like a nail."

The old timey solution to fighting (or mating) dogs is to throw a bucket of cold water over them. No bucket? throw rocks at them or beat them with sticks.

Which proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that guns do kill people. They kill people by being close to hand, even, or perhaps especially, the hands of the police, not to mention frightened homeowners awakened by a noise (perhaps a child sneaking in at four a.m.), suicidal people, etc.

Over 60% of gun-related homicides are suicides. The hammer is close to hand. (Men are six times more likely to commit suicide successfully because they are more likely to use guns rather than pills or some other method that gives you a second chance to live. Women who attempt suicide often think better of it or can't stand the pain of a slow death. Some are just looking for attention or help.)

The endless stream of news stories that the US press produces about homeowners who shoot somebody fatally for walking up their sidewalk to ask directions or for turning their car in their drive way shows "self-defence" is no excuse or defence.

The endless stream of news stories about cops shooting the mentally ill, or kids (black) for running away, etc., show that policing is no excuse or defence.

The endless stream of children who shoot themselves or other small children show that "responsible gun owners" is no excuse or defence.

Guns do kill people. They kill people by being readily available and always close to hand.

A gun is not safety. It is, at best, security, and a risk of escalated violence. Having a gun does not make you safe, it does not necessarily make you secure. Most weapons used in crimes are stolen from people who thought they would be safe or secure. Far more people are victims of guns than use guns for self-defence.

You can kill people with a knife or a baseball bat, but you are more likely to stop before that contingency when you notice that you are not beating a burgler or facing down a murderer, but your son.

IF I HAD A HAMMER (The Hammer Song)

If I had a hammer

All over this land
I'd hammer out danger
I'd hammer out a warning
I'd hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

I'd ring it in the evening
All over this land
I'd ring out danger
I'd ring out a warning
I'd ring out love between my brothers and my sisters

I'd sing it in the morning
I'd sing it in the evening
All over this land
I'd sing out danger
I'd sing out a warning
I'd sing out love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

Well I've got a hammer
And I've got a bell
And I've got a song to sing
All over this land
It's the hammer of justice
It's the bell of freedom
It's the song about love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land

Any loud noise will do. A police siren would do the job from quite a ways. A gun shot is loud enough to do the job from a few yards away, as is that peircing whistle some people can do with their fingers.

But any loud, shattering noise in close proximity to the dogs will give them something bigger to worry about than each other.

I've always been amused/horrified by the often-dizzying mental gymnastics the police will use in order to justify, however meekly, the stupid shiat they get caught doing.

I agree that there are some dogs that you may have no alternative but shooting. But there are stories of police going onto peoples properties and even if the dog isn't aggressive (and there are witnesses to that fact) still shoot the dog because it looked at them. There are stories of police going onto or into wrong households and because the dog barked at them (protecting it's territory) they shoot the dog instead of letting the owner corral it or control it. And stories of dogs being on leashes and being shot. Really? How do you justify shooting a dog on a leash? Don't get close enough for it to bite you! It runs out of leash and you have nothing to worry about. It's worrisome, the trend of shooting the dog just because you can. And most times, no action is taken by the department, because it's just a dog.

mynameist: At first I was bothered, but after noticing the breed, meh.


"seemed to be a pit bull and had a leash" is a pretty low bar for noticing the breed. You could show the general public pretty much any muscular dog and the vast majority of them would call it a pit bull.

I know *a lot* of dog breeds, and even I thought several of these were pitbulls:

Lots of the usual anti-cop butthurt in here. What were the cops supposed to do? Try and have a nice conversation with the dogs? They were fighting with each other, if the cops didn't intervene one of them may have been injured or even killed.

pyrotek85: Real Women Drink Akvavit: So, are they not trained in how to use a taser on a dog? That would have seemed a safer alternative, considering the setting.

I hadn't really thought about it before, but can tasers even be used on dogs safely? Most dogs weigh a good deal less than an adult human does, I wonder if there is a minimum weight required to avoid killing them.


I hadn't thought about it before either until you mentioned it, but considering we hear about humans being killed by tasers from time to time, it wouldn't  surprise me if it  could kill a dog as well.

Maybe we should get the USPS dudes and dudettes  to train cops in how to handle dogs. I'm pretty sure the ones around here carry pepper spray or some other form of defense in case of an aggressive dog running free through the  neighborhood, trying to eat people in uniforms.

It might kill them or it might do nothing with all the fur. But either way it seems like a good thing to try and is probably going to be less lethal and a bunch of bullets.

I would definitely be getting arrested and/or shot if I were present when that happened to one of my dogs.

Next time, just say, "Hey buddy, they're YOUR problem." Then just walk away, and see how the public reacts to that video. I'm sure they'll all understand.

Don't cops carry stun guns or pepper spray? This seems kind of extreme.
