Weird, I didn’t realize that Fleeing, Resisting, or Impeding was a PC for lethal response. This I hope sets a precedent for you weather vain commenters. Next time a Tea party rally, or political statement is arrested by Missouri DSP, remember your comments about getting “Shot in the head”. The Trooper jeopardized his own safety by going in to the car.

Did I wake up in a parallel universe or do we not have the right to peacefully assemble? If one so called “Permitted group” was encroaching on another group and did not wish to have them there I could see pulling this as a “Everybody play nice rule” otherwise this is a LOAD.

so I take it “Wealth of Nations” isn’t required reading in Econ 101 anymore?
“I feel a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced.” – apropos no?

AM I the only one who noticed the cop with the M4/AR-15 at the ready when they tackled the perp? This is a situation that is inherently dangerous, it will spiral out of control and they will use this as a “Kent State” Moment… you watch, a “Tragic” event will occur, then (Here’s how they get a militarized force with the OWS Movement) the Group Oath Keepers will get involved (co-opted) to defend these “poor and mistreated people”.
Look again, more closely, it is in fact a "less lethal" gun that fires rubber bullets, that are much like paintballs, hence the orange buttstock. Orange buttstocks denote "less lethal" only and in the case of the rubber bullet version they will not accept a M-4 magazine. So, tragedy averted, any other questions? Despite what you may think, it looks like DPD actually knows what they're doing. So cut 'em some slack.

BLAZE ORANGE… Nuff said. If you are dumb enough to go traipsing around a KNOWN AND MARKED hunting area, IN SEASON. without an obvious and clearly identifiable article of clothing in said BLAZE ORANGE. then you qualify for a Darwin Award.
What? It's bad enough that hunters are required by law to wear orange so that morons with guns don't shoot other hunters by mistake. Now you want everyone to wear orange? Maybe that's the problem. "I didn't see no orange, so I shot."
People with guns need to use a hell of a lot more self control.
A couple strolling through the woods can now get shot because they don't wear orange?
Almost all land is hunting land and almost every time of year is a hunting season of some sort. Also, you are trying to put the burden of not getting shot on the victim. The burden of not shooting and killing a person is only on the person who is holding the firearm. Stop trying to push the blame off on others because you want to shoot at anything that moves in the woods and is brown or black. It is not hard to properly ID a game animal as not human. It isn't rocket surgery and you are an idiot.

Tornado’s…. the ultimate in socialistic tendencies, they take what you have, and distribute it equally around the geographic area.
