    These police stories get more horrific every time I get on the internet. Seriously sad.

    I am not a police advocate at all really, but I do respect guys that put their lives at risk and have to make judgement calls all the time. You are paid to be in a ton of Danger and sometimes sh** happens. San Diego PD shot people all the time. Kids. Crazy people. Homeless people. If you come at them from 50 yards away, you are getting gunned down... Its a sad state of affairs, but when people put their lives at risk in such a crazy job, they are also trained to protect themselves. This situation is wild. But it is what it is... "Mental Illness" and stuff are used as a lot of excuses, but people that act crazy in the real world put them selves at risk to get harmed. I mean, look at all these kids gunning down schools and doing crazy sh**. Its always stated after the fact "He had mental illness"... That is no excuse. I mean, would you care if someone in your family was harmed or worse by a person with "mental illness". That is no excuse. If you pose a threat to the real world, you should be removed from it and hospitalized. Not be allowed to walk around like a ticking time bomb that could harm innocent people at any time... Its like the pleading insanity debate in court.... Yeah, someone who murders 10 people is obviously insane. I kinda thought that goes without saying in situations like that.

    Its like the Traevon Martin thing... If you listen to the police call and you follow the incident, the kid got away for almost a minute, had time to dump whatever "contraband" or whatever the kid had, then you hear zimmerman say that he is back in the seen. So, he vanishes and then comes back at zimmerman. The kid attacks zimmerman so he gets blasted... And the whole world is like, he was an innocent kid with skittles..... Well, where did he disappear to for 1 minute and why did he come back at the guy. What would you think. And then you are getting attacked. Even if the kid just punched him in the face, that is reason to get shot. Its not the wild west or the 50s. If you dont know what someone is capable of and your brain suddenly says you are at risk, you gotta do what you gotta do... bam bam.

    I mean, I wasnt there, but after hearing the 911 call and the timeline, I think its pretty crazy that the world got up in arms about a sketchy kid getting shot after loitering and selling drugs then attacking the guy. crazy world. Lesson of the day. Don't fu** with the guy with a gun. Ever. Unless you got a bigger, faster gun and are ready to use it.

    Yeah man idk...the trayvon thing is apples and oranges to this situation imo, at least what they're saying about it up to this point. Trayvon got capped in some sort of mutually engaged conflict...this kid idk, 3 cops, 1 kid w/ a screwdriver, couldn't they have tased him?

    I'm no police advocate either, as there seem to be a lot of violations of peoples' rights quite frequently, but the flipside to that is I've had the privelege of knowing a few officers quite well...one in particular was like a brother to me, taught me everything I know about hand to hand combat, and was a warrior in the truest sense of the word. The type of guy you'd want to show up if the shiit's hitting the fan. So there's good ones out there for sure, they just seem to be outnumbered by the power hungry bad ones.

    As an aside, i just got a ticket recently. For turning right on red in at a no right on red stoplight. Definitely one of the power piggies, and as he approached my truck he was shining his light around just looking for a reason to search my vehicle. I was driving clean, so I had nothing to hide, and some time...anyway I fumbled around acting all nervous hoping he'd search my truck(which has the more dog hair than any other truck in New England). He didn't take the bait unfortunately.

    I guess the one piggy felt threatened a 90 lbs kid being held down by 2.

    IF that is really the way it went down the cop should get the chair... But I doubt it did happen that way.
