Ivan the Tolerable: ... ignoring all warnings to get back inside....

Deputy Terrance Knox: "Sir! Sir! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! (BANGBANGBANGBANGBANGBANG!) Shots fired! Shots fired! Drop the gun! Drop the gun!"

Bobby Canipe: "It's a walking stick."

Deputy Terrance Knox: "Oh shiat!"

Bobby Canipe: "I took my cane out."

Deputy Terrance Knox: "I am so sorry. Stay still, stay still."

lizyrd: IRQ12: ArkAngel: Fox News Channel reporter Trace Gallagher reported on Thursday that Knox's commanding officer said, judging from the dash cam tape, that Knox "did the right thing."

How in the hell was that the right thing? He shouts something at the guy then completely unloads on him. Doesn't even say "Drop the gun" until he emptied a magazine at him.

Dumbass cop needs to be fired

Commanding officer does to, if that's the message he is sending out.

lizyrd: , "what he did was understandable" is more in line

Pull out a cane (or other like item) at your next traffic stop.  Pretty please?

No, don't think I will. See, I know how to keep cops calm when I deal with them. And I do deal with them. I suspect that I have more arrests under my belt than the average Farker, as well a a sometimes-less-than-cordial professional relationship with them. I'm no big fan of cops.

This guy did several things right in a row that raise red flags in a cop's head. These things compounded on each other, culminating in squaring his shoulders and raising a long, gun-sized object at the cop. That was a textbook example of how to get yourself shot while unarmed.


Well good for you civilian you get extra ration points.

This dumb ass obviously wasn't properly trained on how a proper citizen in a police state should behave when confronted by authorities.

They really should give out a manual on how not to terrify those poor heroes.

Is there a place to read the best actions to take while being pulled over to be as cooperative as possible (keys, lights, windows, how far off the road)?

In order to reverse the militant police trend each of us will have to get more active in local politics.  Thats where the difference can be made.  We cant sit back and expect the proper course will be followed.

Easier to just dispense frontier justice, take 'em out back and,,

Figuratively, of course, how could you take that literally?
