Let me tell you something, until you put YOUR life on the line day in and day out, you have no freakin clue what kind of evils truly exist in some neighborhoods. In this day and age, with real actual bad guys shooting cops as they try to do their jobs, for this clown to think that this is an acceptable thing to do....he pulled it out and pointed it at this cop just as if it were a holstered weapon!!! What IF this guy had an actual gun and shot this officer to death? What then? Until you put yourself in danger like these guys do, you really have no credible argument in this matter.


Police fatalities are the lowest they've ever been. Loggers face an on the job death rate of 146 per 100,000. For pizza delivery drivers it's 38 per 100,000. Police Officers are 1.56 per 100,0000. The national average across every job is 3.5 per 100,000.

Cops face an on the job death rate that's 1/26th that of the guy who delivers pizza to their home, and we're supposed to believe that the police have a dangerous job?

Totally, and what if he had a ham sandwich? Or what if he had a suitcase nuke? Or what if he had a VW Bug in his pocket? What about if he had a turtle?

He had a banana...

from all these accounts of fingers,toys and fruit being treaded as real guns i have come to the conclusion that this is a spiritual battle where even the slightest resemblance to an actual shooting event spiritually marks one for death and the only way to negate being marked is by killing the one that marked you or penalizing them. it sounds crazy but my claims are backed up by thousands of sensless events and even banning finger pointing and toys in school.

Twaddle. This has to be one of the most stupid arguments ever. I hear people use it, or something like it, all the time on ATS.

Think about it. Are you a published professional musician? No? Then I condemn you to listen to Barry Manilow 24/7. After all, if you aren't a professional musician, you can have no opinion on the matter, having never put yourself in a recording studio. Go get some albums, man. By your statement, you MUST enjoy it, you have no option because you can have no argument on what you like or don't.

Are the lawyers making the laws these guys occasionally enforce, cops? No? How can they make laws, if they're not also cops? They can have no credible argument in the matter, after all, according to you.

How about the judges? How can they try any case, without being cops? Worse, how can a judge ever try a cop? He hasn't "put himself in that position", so he can never condemn one. Yet, it happens. Not often enough, but it does. Hell, by your argument, a judge could never try anyone but another judge.

Personally, I'd say by your criterion if a cop isn't a practicing lawyer, he is unable to enforce the law, since he can have no credible perception of the subject matter. Is he a lawyer? No. So he has no understanding of the law, not having put himself in law school, like those guys do. With no understanding of the law, he can't enforce it.

See how your statement fails to hold water? Good. As long as LEOs have any sort of authority over me, I can have any damn opinion I want.

What an idiot! Guy thinks this kinda thing is funny and a laughing matter, probably SHOULD have been shot by the cops. Seriously.
Wow, looks like another poster to add to the "no respect" list.

Did you seriously say he should have been murdered for having a banana?

Holy crap people.....no wonder this country is falling apart.

Well another person to add to the cant comprehend what they read list. I SAID that if he thinks that pointing something at a police officer as if were a gun is funny, then yes, he deserved to be shot. You understand now?


your words:

'nuff said.

You've made my point for me. Like I said, cops would have you believe that every other person out there is just looking for a chance to shoot them.

Cops kill FAR more civilians than are killed by civilians. its not even close.

Heck, cops dont even have one of the ten deadliest jobs in america.

Y'all have done a great job of selling the meme. Unfortunately, the facts dont support it.

I dont believe you to be that far off.

In my opinion, this is ALL about asserting dominance.

Its sort of like an abusive relationship. The abuser asserts such dominance that the abused becomes so scared, that they fall in line without question.

The poor ladies in cleveland are a prime example. They werent even restrained most of the time. They were simply too scared to run.

I am not one for religion, but this is a meta-war. A war for your mind and spirit. The point is to make everyone so afraid of our abusers, that no one will fall out of line.
