(CBS Philadelphia)   There's "ballsy," and there's "Philly ballsy," which consists of robbing police officers at gunpoint. Think the cops will be following up on this crime in particular?   (philadelphia.cbslocal.com) divider line

Omar comin'!

Yeah, when it comes to shaking people down, the cops do NOT put up with competition.

Handguns with high-capacity drum magazines are not exactly self defense weapons. 50 round drums for a 9mm?
Yeah, I bet the cops want to see that gun again. They want to keep it.

Guy in a traffic stop looks black, murder because fear for life.

Robbed, meh whatever

How would walking in a group helped?

I don't expect it feeds reliably. Aftermarket drum magazines tend to be unreliable. They're cool in concept though so there's a market for them.
 
2021-09-25 5:59:30 PM  
They probably shouldn't have been hanging out looking like prostitutes.

And it was probably illegally modified to fire full-auto, hence the 50-round drum magazine.

It ain't easy being an Eagles fan. Probably needed the cash to buy batteries.

That's how you know they actually were in fear of their lives. It's also how you know the USA was damn sure Saddam Hussein was nowhere near assembling a nuclear weapon: if they thought there was the slightest chance he had one, they wouldn't have risked invading.
 
2021-09-25 6:03:11 PM  
Blah blah probably asking for it dressing nice in the wrong part of town blah

They would have robbed somebody else.
 
2021-09-25 6:06:09 PM  
Yup. "Unidentified bodies found"

And while i certainly don't approve of vigilantism, or police brutality, Philly would let me down if that wasn't the result and wouldn't be the same.
 
2021-09-25 6:06:32 PM  
The article didn't give a description of the robbers so I can only assume they were white guys in MAGA hats.
 
2021-09-25 6:09:30 PM  
Stay strapped or get clapped robbed, swine.  🖕
 
2021-09-25 6:11:50 PM  
I bet those cops were intoxicated about to hop in their cars and drive home.
 
2021-09-25 6:11:52 PM  
...and they didn't shoot them in the back?
 
2021-09-25 6:12:43 PM  
It was probably Wayne Brady. Dude is a menace to society.

Assault and for battery

Or some other cop
 
2021-09-25 6:19:10 PM  
I'm sure they'll "call if something turns up" , right?

Stay tuned for more shocking developments.

Wait a sec, are you telling me two "good guys" with a gun couldn't stop one bad guy with a gun.

That just means more citizens should arm themselves.....or is the solution cut taxes?

Those are the only solutions the conservatives seem to have....oh, this just in.....we need more restrictions to vote to solve this particular problem.

I thought something like this. But I read the article. The off-duty police were NOT armed.

When you're so nuked-up you rob the cops.

Well, not any more obviously.

I'm on Fark, so of course I didn't read the article, but if two cops were off duty and NOT armed that seems fishy enough to require an investigation to uncover the false report.

Lol, I love Fark gun threads because you have completely clueless people using their imagination and common sense to decide how the gun world works, with about zero experience with guns...

First, a drum magazine is not a big deal, and you can buy a 50 round mag for your Glock for around $60 if you're bored and want to make a Youtube video:

https://www.classicfirearms.com/glock​-​50-round-drum-magazine/

More importantly, the reason no ones uses them is because they jam like crazy. 15 round mags are easy to change out and a trained shooter can swap them so quickly you won't hear a pause in the gunfire. These guys are morons.

I'm pretty sure the police aren't hell-bent on getting that gun "off the streets". They're emphasizing the "high capacity assault magazine" so that the reliably ignorant public will think these are hardcore cartel Sicarios rather than a pair of dumbasses who got the drop on two cops.
 
2021-09-25 7:24:49 PM  
Turns out they were robbed by other off duty cops
 
2021-09-25 7:50:12 PM  
I'm betting that this is going to turn into one of those stories where the cops got blackout drunk and hookers stole their wallets and badges.
 
2021-09-25 8:07:50 PM  
Police are looking for a Toyota with tinted windows

Welp, that helps narrow things down, they'll find 'em in no time!

They were leaving a bar at 1 AM. Smart enough not to carry while drinking, I would guess.

I'm old enough to remember when Wayne Brady had to choke a biatch.

Cops get robbed, man bites dog, I'm the mayor of this town and I say it was a sand crab.

If the cops had had their weapons there would be 2 dead cops and some criminals with 2 more guns.  Good thing they didn't.

Cut taxes with a gun. Duh.

Don't think so, buddy.  Whenever I'm off duty, I carry a concealed weapon, and I sure as heck wouldn't have let these punks get the drop on me.

I would've reached for my wallet and phone and distracted them by dropping a flash grenade, and then overpowering them with my bear hands, zip-tie them, and then call for back up while I hold them at bay with my concealed snub nose .38 I pulled from my waistband.  These cops are a disgrace to the badge. Smh

Look, I'm on 'your side', against the 'good guy with a gun' crap, but you need to not ignore the facts and misstate them, even though it wouldn't change the result.

The article said it was MULTIPLE criminals with MULTIPLE guns, and that the police did not have any guns with them.

Yup, Aquapop got it right. You'd be one killed cop.

Au contrair, it gives the police the ability to pull over any and every Toyota with tinted drivers.

They were off-duty so they didn't have any batteriess on them.

Two pants-wetting pussies WITHOUT their guns couldn't do anything besides cry for their mommies.

Even I spotted the exaggeration. You didn't. Need more coffee or something?
