People have no respect anymore. No respect for authority, the law, or simply other people in general. This is so sad.

Remember to use a rich soil and proper fertilizer when you plant them, and give them lots of light.

I don't understand why people have negative views about police. They make a lot of sacrifices (risking their lives) in a job that doesn't pay as well as it should. They are usually the first to be called when there is a problem.

If you are not doing anything wrong, then there should be no fear.

Another job that I feel is underpaid are firefighters. They risk their lives to save others.

Yeah, I certainly hope you (Glenfiddich_Man) don't think we ALL share the same view on law enforcement. I greatly appreciate what you, and your brethren, are doing to keep us safe. Just ignore the little punks who like to talk trash...

Sure, there is a place and a time for a show of lethal force, but honestly, statements like this are why police scare the **** out of me. Otoh, I was chatting with my buddy about this, and he stated it's probably just e-p33n, and in this context police are just people wrt to their personal space. So, I suppose it's not that a police officer is this aggressive regarding their personal space that bothers me so much as anyone is this aggressive about their personal space. Anyway, GL with your nutty neighbors provided this wasn't a troll.

I didn't say I would shoot him, just that I know the laws. I will do what is necessary to take him into custody. But if I am sleeping and hear someone breaking in, I am going to grab my pistol every time.

Why advertise you're a cop? Doesn't that just put you out there to be a target for anti-police people?

Yep I agree with you Taerom. I've been fortunate to see both sides and let me tell you, cops are not out to harrass people. Why add more stress to your life when you have to deal with it 10 hours a day while on shift? Everyday they come up to a circumstance where all you have to give you info is the dispatcher. They are the lifeline of communication. The dispatcher gets the info from the caller who is usually in a panic or does not have all of the facts straight. Cops go into situations blindly. They do not know who they are dealing with and have to adjust themselves to the issue at hand. It takes skill, smarts, patience, fair judgement and a calm personality to be able to handle this. Every call that they take is a risk. Every nite their wives have to wonder if this is the last time she will say goodbye. Every nite the cop wonders if his kiss goodnite to his children was his last.

I give them Kudos

That's what scares the **** outa me. Things that are designed specifically to kill people that is.
I hope that police officers are trained such that they could take nearly anyone into custody w/o exhibition of lethal force, but I suppose that'd require too much training/skill to be practical.

Yeah, and then the "anti-police people" become targets for us "pro-police people".

If you mean at home, everyone see's me coming and going from work. I know what most of my neighbors do for work also.

As for hear, I was just sharing a story what happened tonight. Being an officer is just a part of my life, it's who I am.

we do, there is a level of force progression. When someone is breaking into a house (burglary) that is a felony. Policy and law states that weapons can be drawn in forcible felonies, which it would be. So i am 100% justified in doing so. The level of the officer is always dictated on what the bad guy(s) is doing.

See, this whole thing would've been better if the guy got tazed and you got it on video.

If someone breaks into my house in the middle of the night, the only way they are leaving is on a stretcher. End of story.

The idea of force progression in and of itself isn't that bad, it's that it escalates so rapidly wrt to what's considered a felony that bothers me. The person may or may not be there to do personal harm, but until that's been determined, the exhibition of lethal force is just nuts. The only thing that should be met with an exhibition of lethal force is a direct threat to an individuals health/safety imho...

Florida law is a little different to your feelings. remember I never said I was going to shoot him, only that I will be drawing down and then assessing where to go. It's really hard to explain how quick things happen to y'all, but its quick. All the fights and incidents I have been through while working happen so fast.
To let you know civilians are 100% allowed to draw down, and even shoot intruders. In Florida that is.
And I ask you this. Do you think its is really negligent on my part to make a basic assumption that someone breaking into the home of a police officer, that they have possibly more motive then a common burglary?
