not to put a downer on your thread.. but firstly the cop is aware he is being filmed, now with all the anti cop videos lately, which im sure they are
aware of.. of course he will be nice..
also i think its crazy that you can walk around with a gun in open view.. not be checked on who you are or if your even allowed to carry a weapon..
what would happen if he walked around the corner after this and killed 6 people? im sure there would be a completly different view on this cop and his
this is the reason why you guys have such a high murder rate there, and most americans seem to advocate the ownership and carrying of firearms... i
just dont get it...

What would happen if he walked around the corner after this and killed 6 people? FIrst, let's pretend for a moment that this isn't the most moronic
statement ever. Well, einstein, if EVERYONE carried, he wouldn't get very far in his endeavor to slaughter 6 people, would he? He'd take maybe one
out before the other 5 drew on him and put HIM down. THAT is why there is a second amendment. That and defense against tyranny.
Good thing people like you feel much safer without a gun. It makes slaughtering people much less dangerous to murderers when the targets don't shoot
Here's another whatif. What if YOU were one of the 6 people he went around the corner and slaughtered? I bet that while you were laying there on the
sidewalk bleeding out, you'd be thinking "Damn, I wish I had a gun so I could have defended myself just then. But since I didn't, my family can sue
this guy and get a huge judgment and all will be well. Except of course for the fact that I'll be dead in 45 seconds."
Oh, that's right, if guns were outlawed, criminals who like to slaughter people at random would be forced to rethink their plan, because hey, guns are
illegal, right. Ya know, almost as illegal as slaughtering people.
"Golly, Jim, I'm feeling an uncontrollable rage coming on. I think I'll go downtown a slaughter a bunch of people with a gun."
"Can't do that, Bob."
"Why not, Jim?"
"Because, silly, guns are illegal."
"Oh, that's right, Jim. Thanks for the reminder. I guess I'll vent my rage by watching cartoons instead."
This is YOUR reality? Wakey wakey.
