I'm not going to discuss the story. Instead, I was having an amusing time reading the discussion thread that followed the argument. Some people made good points, both for and against the officer's actions. One guy on the anti-cop side, however, made me laugh,
See this is why Police enFORCEment is sad, it's all about Force, What happened to the good Peace officers, I have had more guns pointed at me by police Officers in Utah then by anyone else, and that's when I have called them...Really? I have yet to have a single gun pointed at me by ANYONE, much less a police officer. Am I doing something wrong? Offending the wrong people? Hanging out with the wrong crowd? Antagonizing the wrong gun-wielding demographic? I would love to ask him exactly how many times he's had a gun pointed at him, and what he was doing at the time.
(BTW, a picture someone posted in that same discussion thread is the one I used to the "You're doin' it wrong" post I just made.)
