Your Say

Remember the police are your friends, and very well trained with firearms. This is why so few shots were fired by the police and every shot fired hit their intended criminal target.

Remember, if your are not doing anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about.
A tip from your friendly neighborhood police association.

From Murphy's Laws of Infantry Combat (applicable here):

Friendly fire isn't.
Anything you do can get you shot, including nothing.
Incoming fire has the right of way.

Today's public union police are becoming a expensive luxury.

waltj, add the cravat: If they are in range, so are you.

Peccable, One caveat, if I may: Cravates don't go well with waltj's pajamas.

Cravates [sic] don't go well with waltj's pajamas.

They don't? Darn, I thought a cravat might add some class to my sleepwear.

Here's another one from Murphy:
When in doubt, empty the magazine.

There are times that might be appropriate for an infantryman. For a policeman on a busy city street, perhaps not.
