You only deploy less lethal munitions in a situation like this this un certain circumstances.
2 things would have been required. One is space, distance. You have to have enough space to safely deploy the munition. That means beyond the golden 21′ rule but within the maximum effective range.
And 2 only if you had a lethal system also at the ready.
So you initially deploy lethal munitions then when safe to do so break out the less lethal devices.

I keep hearing how cops have a super safe job & all that BS. Also heard/read numerous posts/comments/statements from libs & libertarians how cops could stand to lose a few.
Seems the libs & Sovereign Citizens are making good on the last one.

The rest of the gun companies need to follow suit as Barrett & others have. STOP SELLING TO STATES THAT RESTRICT CITIZENS FREEDOMS!!!

This is a plan designed to send the world into flames, likely uranium fueled.

It’s a system designed to fail. Either support a bad deal and cause the world to burn or shut it down & cause it to burn.
This will lead to Meggedo.

Naw, Buffet lies. He tells people he pays less in taxes than his secretary.

Exactly what I was thinking SC!
I pulled over a black sedan & 0245 after it ran a red light. From block away through tinted windows I supposedly profiled him.
Please press hard, 3 copies….

He lost me, at least as #1 pick, when he opposed an Obama nomination, said they were horrible, filibustered the nominee, then votes for her anyway “because the president should have the cabinet he wants.”
Then why does Congress even need a say?

I much preferred the previous 2.

I work with with the family of a young man who made international headlines for being involved in a random murder in SW OK.
Not ONCE has he tried to act the way these people do.
Now, the friends of the other two boys beat & stabbed a city worker a few days after making numerous threats in the process.
BIG difference in the way people act.

Obama’s son down in Florida is a similar case. 6’2-190 vs 5’8-165, from behind.

I’ve heard similar rhetoric from (not ALL!) many libertarian/Paulbots. Sad but true, many on that side of the fence have repeatedly said American is ran by Israel.

It’s not just American Jews, American Catholics too. Religiously conservative but socially liberal.
supermandad, I beg to differ. Most American Catholics are conservative. These is no way for us to be anything else, the Democrats who profess to be Catholic are only fooling themselves. You cannot be both Catholic Christian and a Democrat, you have to make a choice and not be a cafeteria catholic (picking what beliefs you want and disregarding what you don't). I have wondered for years how the Kennedys convince themselves that they can be both and I have frequently thought JFK and RFK are rolling over in their graves.

Sadly traditionally conservative religious groups like Jews , Catholics and many mainline Protestants are becoming increasingly liberal in their politics.
Many more are coming to realize the falacy of their ways as the liberals eat them at every turn.

I’m pretty confident Tele’ was being sarcastic…. Thumbs down? Really?

THIS is why I’m hesitant to instantly condemn officers when they use force. We’re not living in Mayberry, people don’t have good intentions.
There are guns disguised as cell phones or other ordinary every day item.
Others will use filming the officer (or civilian) as a ruse to get within striking distance.
It doesn’t mean you instantly pull out a gun on every person that comes within 7ft of you, but you might want to start creating space and distance if they keep advancing after being told to stop.
As a cop or as (law abiding) John Q Public you have 1 job: go home at the end of the day. We can discuss the rest of the decisions & actions later rather than at your funeral, saying “if only he/she would have just shot him”.

Sadly many comentors on this site came out against Ofc. Wilson initially because the “victim” was unarmed.
Unarmed does not equal not a threat.
