NFA: Marcus Aurelius: "If it was justified then we'll deal with it, if it wasn't we'll address it as well," said Sgt. Joey Smith with the Henry County Police DepartmentOf course you will. We all have so much faith in the police self-policing themselves. Maybe you can go out and shoot some puppies afterwards.WHO WATCHES THE WATCHERS?
MagSeven: They were black 11 year olds. That's like equal to the threat of 6 white 11 year olds.
That Guy Jeff: And the reason for his wife's call: "There were falling hazards, tripping hazards, all types of hazards, so No. 1 was concern for the children and concern for the environment," Dillard said.This woman is a piece of shiat. I hope she has an incredibly painful heart attack from all this attention she's generated. Or at the very least, feels really, really shiatty about getting jackbooted thugs to pull a gun on children.
fredklein: But people like you would claim that's just another 'anecdote'. Just another 'isolated incident'. I swear, I could find people like you on the beach saying "Look, another isolated grain of sand. And another isolated grain of sand. And another isolated grain of sand...."
nytmare: You can never have a legit discussion about who's right and what's wrong in these type of threads because the libertarian pot-smokers all immediately swarm the thread extolling how they know the cop is automatically in the wrong and declaring their undying devotion to hating cops and how America would be so much better off without any cops. It would be hilarious if it wasn't so pathetic and formulaic.
buckler: And the reason for his wife's call: "There were falling hazards, tripping hazards, all types of hazards, so No. 1 was concern for the children and concern for the environment," Dillard said. [p.gr-assets.com image 246x205]
Canton: "Paramedic" is just another codeword for police officer. Duh./Sheesh
hardinparamedic: fnordfocus: Doesn't change the fact that he was actually pointing his weapon at the boy he was allegedly saving.The angle of the photo would disagree. He's actually holding it to the side. In addition, that MP5 does not have a sling. To use his hand, he has to hold it to the side, or drop the gun in the presence of an uncontrolled individual during a raid.Which seems smarter: Dropping an automatic weapon, or holding it to the side with nothing on the trigger?fnordfocus: You're a cop.No, I'm not. :| What the hell gave you that idea?
Canton: nijika: I think we need to hear the Whole Story(tm).But seriously where are they hiring these cops? Where do you find people who are willing to point a killing device at a child?Yeah, we do. I keep wondering what the kids were using to cut the branches. Did they have a saw? Was it protocol to draw a gun due to the threat *snrk* of a hand saw? (There's no way it was chainsaw.) If so, they should really look into changing that policy...Seriously, though, pulling on a gun on 11-year-olds being 11-year-olds. wtf?
