    Listen, as a police officer we are trained to respond with an appropriate level of force against whatever is being used against us. If someone wants to fight us hand to hand we go for our baton/ASP. If they have a pipe we can use our Taser. If they bring out a knife we can engage our sidearm. Most officers today have a baton, a can of mace, a taser, and a sidearm. Unless that dog was just like the rabbit from Monty Python’s Search for the Holy Grail the baton is all the officers would need. Smack the dog with that and it will usually run off. If not, a taser will work. Unless the dog is out for blood and the other things do not work, then you use your firearm as a last resort. There is no reason that the officer’s first instinct should be to shoot the dog. I’ve been attacked by dogs twice while on the job and my ASP was all I needed to defend myself. This all boils down to piss poor training by the department and the officer not keeping his head about him.

    I have faith in the system again! Finally! I am sorry that a life was lost, but the evidence that the young man attacked Zimmerman was overwhelming. Get ready for the riots. Do I want to see that? Of course not. But social media is full of people saying they want to kill the first white person they see. Stay safe everyone!

    I watched this movie on opening night. I didn’t like the ending too much, but it was OK. Having no idea about the director’s comments at all before seeing it, I actually came out thinking it was an anti-liberal movie. Reason being: The New Founding Fathers in the movie is a new set of people who were elected who are reveared in a cult-like manner, it seems. They are the ones who establish this “Purge” concept. Why I believe they were Liberals was because the only people who have a problem with the current Founding Fathers are left-wing Libs. Conservatives love our country and our Founding Fathers and treat life as a precioius thing to be loved and protected. In this movie, there is a 12 hour window where you can commit all this crime and kill practically anyone you want.

    Another aspect is in the movie, the people who wanted to (felt they had to) show support for this Purge had to buy and display blue flowers in front of their house (obviously blue is more associated with liberals).

    But I think the biggest aspect, and not trying to give anything away (sort of), the antagonist is a white college elite who are “well off”. They explain every Purge they find a homeless person to chase and kill because they are “dogs who do not deserve to life and who are beneith us.” Now if that doesnt sound like a liberal I do not know WHAT does.

    The ending is pretty good, but it could have been a LOT better. And again, I did not see it as anti-gun. But maybe if I rewatc

    NH Winter, Please know what the you are talking about before you open your mouth. Cubans are not coming here to spread Communism! 95% of Cubans living in the US are REPUBLICAN! I should know I live here in Miami (though I’m a redneck from the Midwest) with a Cuban fiancee and close to a lot of her relatives. Most Cubans came here fleeing the very thing you are accusing them of spreading! My father-in-law was a political prisoner of Castro because he stood up.

    The night of the election not one person was in a good mood. Most Cubans can’t believe what they are seeing. Half of the population of their adopted country are voting themselves slowly into Socialism/Communism and all most of the Cubans want to do is fight it. They’ve been there, they seen what is coming. They do not want to go back to ration cards where it is illegal to own/eat red meat (you were thrown in JAIL if you were caught), where you cannot have more than 6 eggs a month and more than half a glass of milk a day for kids and NONE after 6 years old.

    Get over yourself!

    If Egypt issued arrest warrants for anyone who says/does anything that would go against Islam I think half of America would be on that list. And the penalty includes death? Tolerance my ass!

    Ouch. Being from Missouri (now living in Miami, Florida) I have to say I’m quite ashamed of this guy. The people in Missouri are pretty level headed for the most part. Every state has their wackos, it just seems bad luck that the light has came down on this particular nut job. I’ll be calling my friends and family in Missouri to make sure they do not vote for this guy and tell them what he has been saying.

    I just seen that last week. Awesome movie. Some of those SEALs can really act. Deploy a SEAL Team to the border with orders to shoot anyone with *weapons* entering the country illegally. See how quickly our boarder would be secured.

    Yes, the doctors are correct. The mental disorder in adults is now called “Good Behavior”. It’s exceedingly rare in the common adult today. It includes saying ‘Thank you’, ‘Yes Ma’am‘ or ’No Ma‘am’, ‘Yes sir’ or ‘No sir’, and the word ‘Please’. It even goes so far as to compel most adult males into holding a door open for females, even when the males do not get anything in return! This disturbing disorder is also responsible for random people greeting each other in a friendly manner, as well as a general happiness to your fellow man.

    The scientists who brought you this study (not to mention those in major US universities and government positions) are worried that this disease might spread! It is up to all of us to stop using appropriate physical discipline with our children or this mental disorder might spread to all of America, maybe even the world! Act Now!

    Seriously? You guys are complaining about cops actually having a vehicle that can not be shot up by a high powered rifle so they can get close to the suspect? Do you want them to try to get close in an open-air jeep? On foot? No vest? It sounds like you just would rather see cops be killed in a “fair” fight. Hell no. You number one job out on the streets is to get back home to your family. The cops had an advantage of an APC (quit calling it a tank) that they can safely move close. If it keeps ME from getting killed, I’ll take it. And please tell me, if your in a firefight with someone who has an automatic weapon, do you want to go in with a .22 revolver? Or do you want to go in with something at least as large a caliber as the suspect’s? It’s common sense people. If you want to see what happens in that situation, go look up the bank robbery in North Hollywood that happened in the mid to late ’90s. Two suspects with body armor and fully automatic weapons against cops with revolvers and the body armor too light to matter against the suspect’s weapons. Just think how that wouldn’t have happened if the police could have responded in kind early on.

    Please stop thinking as cops as part of a “police state”. That just shows you how dumb you are. As a cop, I can tell you that is completely opposite of what is true. Please, I beg you, read a little. Talk to people instead of holding up in your room sitting at your computer all the time.

    This is how it starts. This is how the left will try to “win” (steal) America. This Brett guy needs to be put in his place.

    Citizens, it is time we stand up for the rights of those who might not be able to stand up for themselves. We must come together as one voice and demand that our children are educated in an environment that promotes BOTH sides of an argument, and do not bully or suppress the rights or views of any side. I want my children to grow up intelligent, not indoctrinated. We must make sure teachers are held to a high standard, one that is obviously in disuse today judging by the actions of this particular teacher.

    Form a group and petition your local school board to help review the textbooks that are brought into the classrooms of our youth. It must start there. Then we can let our voices be heard about the actions of left-wing liberal activist teachers such as this one. If we do not stand up as one, our children will be bullied into believing the only way is the Progressive/Liberal one. I am not advocating for a conservative-only point of view, just equal representation of both sides and teachers who are not pushing their own views or agendas on America’s youth.

    If now is not the time, then when? Because time is not something we have a lot of.

    Wow, I can’t believe all the people on here who start spouting off that the cops should be fired and put in jail. You guys are idiots. Seriously. You guys do not even know that she wasn’t tased with the leads, but instead was tased with the “Dry Stun” option. It is less painful, less effective, and a lot more “safe”. But it still gives a jolt in a very localized area that… gasp.. DOES NOT SPREAD. The baby was fine. It wasn’t in any danger. She was even in a safe sitting position too! You can’t have it any easier than that. Even the liberal judges said it was fine in that instance. I mean geeze. Please have a bit more knowledge before you start spouting off stuff like that.

    Signing does NOT admit guilt, it even says that on the citation. She was an idiot. The cops did the right thing, period.

    Wow, so no more apple pie, baseball games, or July 4th celebrations. We are not America anymore. We are the United States of Everyone Else.

    Shouldn’t we be promoting ideas and customs that are *traditionally American*??? Isn’t that what has made America great? Yes, some diversity is great. I’m sure most of us have many friends from other races or cultures. But while some diversity is good, creating commercial that does not include the majority of Americans (around 75% +) is misrepresenting the U.S.

    This panel should not be made up of 100% left-wing progressives. It should at the very least be bi-partisan and include the Majorty Americans (not just white, if that’s what your mind automaticly went to).

    Listen, Commie. The “workers” strength only lies in the fist of the union bosses. The members have no choice in the matter. It is obvious you have never talked to a bottom-rung union member because almost all of them hate the way the unions are run.

    But, if your talking about the OWS type of people…. well then that would confuse most of the rest of the United States because I haven’t seen one of those people do anything except complain that everything isn’t free. I guess you could call complaining a job. Or, you could just call them Democrats.

    Well, Mr. Armed_Progressive. If you want your violent take over of the U.S. it’s time to step up. Me and the other 250,000,000 of us (those not leftist “Progressives”) who believe in our Constitution are ready to defend it from people like you. If you don’t, crawl back to the little hole you came from and grumble about your student loan payments and how you believe everything isn’t fair and it’s all someone else’s fault and leave the rest of us alone.

    Don’t you have a 6 year old’s lemonade stand to close down due to lack of a permit?

    Conservatives do not ever think we are above the law, but common sense should always in full force when making the laws of the land. That is obviously not the case in MA. If the ground is covered in nails and the building is being held up by duct-tape.. then yeah it should be closed down. But if he did some painting and fixed a few siding boards that were loose then I do not see a problem. Tell the guy “Hey, I seen that you did this updating. Could you please go pull the permits for the repairs?” More than likely, he would have said “No Problem.” and did it. But he was closed down by armed officials. Happy Mother’s Day indeed…

    Wow, talk about accidental honesty! This is one of the most dangerous men in America. We must defend our way of life from people like him.

  • May 15, 2012 at 5:08pm

    Wow, I am kinda shocked at the hate for LEOs here. As an ex-cop myself I know for a fact that most officers are not like the people described above. I have stopped many people in my time and one of the first things I ask is if there are any weapons in the vehicle. If there are, I take possession until the traffic stop is finished, then I hand them back their weapon with a smile (and unloaded of course) and tell them to drive safely. I have never had a problem with anyone carrying a weapon legally. The officers I worked with are really big into 2nd Amendment Rights and would never conduct themselves the way the officer(s) in this article did.

    But it is hard trying to keep your job and do that right thing. Sometimes you can’t. When I was working in a small town in Missouri, I was told not to ever stop anyone that was on the City Council, a family member of the City Council, or anyone belonging to the Elks Lodge (yes I’m serious). When the Chief told me this I was dumbfounded. He was scared of losing his job, and I certainly didn’t want to lose mine. But I told him that was unconstitutional and not fair to the other citizens. I was then told my services were no longer required.

    I guess my point of all of this is that, there are some bad cops. But there are certainly a lot more cops that will put themselves in harms way both legally and physically for the general public than there are those who will not. Do not say we are all the same. See us individually.
