A big thumbs up to the LEO that responded to this situation. Cops really need more training on how to diffuse a situation instead of taking the easy way and pumping the suspects full of lead.


But Core Sounder; there isn't any adrenalin dump in that.

The nice thing about Red Flag laws, are that they can be equally abused. Complaints against cops can be done too, and their firearms and job taken away. Gotta love those democrats.


Ever heard of a .99 cent Bic lighter, and about a 5 minute window? [yawn]
