Or better then expecting so much from the few who have taken up the job to "Serve" and expect more of the "us" to take care of ourselves, our homes and our community?
Why pay someone to protect you tight butt, then tie their hands behind their backs, standing them between yourself and John Q-law breaker......telling him, the man we pay..... to Serve us.... "by the way, you might get killed.... but go tell him to stop it..."

As I suggested before, why not go back to letting the streets take care of it all.

In making my posts as I have, please understand.... do we have all the facts? Doubt it.... do we have all the answers? Doubt it.. do we all agree it's dangerous out there and seconds can be the difference.... both ways.... there are no perfect means to address every incident for a "happy ending" people die to protect rights.... too many don't care of you rights or even their own rights..... sad as it is.... I still see it as a better place then so many other countries. But we can quickly stir frustrations and conflict if we can't get start.....
Speak of peace..... stop pointing fingers....
You all take care!

Better training....why not teasers instead of guns? Hmmm....

It happened in Oregon early this year:

Sergeant Jason Goodding was shot and killed as he and another officer attempted to serve a warrant on a subject on the 300 block of Broadway Street at approximately 9:30 pm.

They observed the subject walking along the street and recognized him as having an active felony warrant. The subject resisted arrest and was tasered. However, he was still able to shoot Sergeant Goodding. Another officer on scene was able to return fire and killed the subject.

Sergeant Goodding had served with the Seaside Police Department for 13 years. He is survived by his wife and two daughters.


And again in Colorado..... 2016:

Deputy Sheriff Derek Geer succumbed to gunshot wounds sustained the previous day while attempting to question a juvenile in the area of 30 Road and E Road, in Grand Junction, at approximately 11:15 am.

He and other deputies were investigating reports of an armed subject in the area and spotted the juvenile, who matched the description of the subject. As Deputy Geer spoke to the juvenile, the boy asked him if he was being detained. When Deputy Geer told him that he was being detained the boy pulled away from him and a struggle ensued.

Deputy Geer deployed a taser, however, the subject was able to pull out a handgun and open fire. Deputy Geer was struck multiple times, including in the face. He was able to radio for assistance but had become unresponsive by the time another deputy arrived at his location. He was transported to St. Mary's Hospital where he remained on life support so his organs could be donated.

The juvenile was arrested a short time later after being found hiding in the backyard of a nearby home.

Deputy Geer was a U.S. Navy veteran and had served with the Mesa County Sheriff's Office for 15 years. He is survived by his wife and two children.

Ever wonder why police officers are cautious in approaching cars along the high way?????

It happened in Utah, January, 2016:

Police Officer Doug Barney was shot and killed after responding to an accident near the intersection of 4500 South and 2300 East, in Holladay, shortly after 10:00 am.

Upon arriving at the scene he observed a man and woman who had been involved in the crash walking away from the vehicles. As he attempted to make contact with the pair the male subject produced a handgun and shot him in the head, fatally wounding him.

Other responding officers located the subject on a nearby street minutes later. An intense shootout occurred in which the man was killed and another officer was wounded. The female fled the scene and remains at large. It was later determined that the male subject had an extensive criminal history with active state and federal arrest warrants.

Officer Barney was a U.S. Navy veteran. He had served in law enforcement for 18 years and was assigned to the Unified Police Department of Greater Salt Lake's Holladay Precinct. He was survived by his wife and three children.

Another tragedy... example of an accused inmate not getting a trial......

Dated 07/11/2016.......Michigan

Security Supervisor Joe Zangaro and Court Officer Ron Kienzle were shot and killed inside the Berrien County Courthouse by an inmate who was attempting to escape at approximately 2:25 pm.

A court officer and a Berrien County sheriff's deputy were in the process of removing the prisoner from a holding cell in a corridor behind a courtroom when the man attacked them. The prisoner was able to disarm one of the officers and opened fire, striking them both. The man escaped into a public hallway where he shot a civilian and exchanged shots with two other court officers, striking one of them, before being killed by return gunfire.

The inmate was in court for two counts of criminal sexual conduct, kidnapping, assault with a dangerous weapon, and domestic assault.

Security Supervisor Zangaro had served as the Berrien County Trial Court's director of security for 10 years after having retired from the Michigan State Police after 25 years.

Mr Johnson's 14th amendment rights were not just trampled upon, they weren't even thought about. Which means that we as society, by not saying anything about this particular situation - are agreeing to surrender our own 14th amendment rights.


Yep.... sad to say he got the same "judgment" he assigned to those five officers and their families. While some will boldly say that his departure from this earth, saved the State a lot of money, the sad part is that we will likely spend millions assessing his reasoning, and likely gain little.

Wow!!!! This is the second time in the last 12 months that I read a post by "our good friend from California".... and thought he he made a more valid point the all prior persons posting on an issue! You feeling o.k. there, Felix??<img src="/forum/images/emoticons/my2cents.gif" alt="My 2 cents">

Just wondering if we can get some of these posting printed up to drop from an airplane flying our border to warn the many who are less knowing and painstakingly trying to get here!!! They will be so disappointed.

Dreams

Dreams come slow tonight I lay here thinking of the times we had... could have had... should have had... But my tears sting with the sadness that I messed all of that up Feeling the emptiness deep inside knowing you will never share with me again Yes, dreams come slow the pain filling each cell of my brain explosions of rage fear of being alone of not finding peace within...
