ugh, it's a video, cannot view them ... any chance there is a narrative or maybe you'd summarize ? thanks in advance.
It's just coverage on the incident. Talks about the story, police arrived and witnesses felt the suspects were let off the hook. It was the opinion of
the person interviewed that if it had been two people who were not officers, they would have been arrested and investigated after. In this case,
during the investigation, apparently this didn't happen.
Also, they were not from Fayetville, and their respective agencies have been notified.
One girl at the scene says she felt her life was in danger and "worried about getting home to her kids alive."
In this case I'd just say theres been a double standard. If it were the bikers who pulled guns a tactical team would have probably come down to layeth
the ass kick on them.
In this case, the off duty cops were both sporting bruises and torn clothing, so it looks like they got their asses kicked by the bikers, then
proceeded to wave their guns around.
The bikers were not charged with assault (judging from the article) so it appears as this should have just been some fistacuffs where no guns should
have been drawn. And, being that the story seems to imply the off duty cops were instigating, personally, I think all police action should be left out
If they acted like that while on duty of course, it would be a major problem.
And... The two off duty cops should probably suffer the consequences, any normal person with a conceal and carry would face for their actions that
I personally believe men can settle their differences with a punch here and there. Most of older crowd I was raised by was firm believers in this.
Without any judicial action. Just men sorting out their differences, as it adds character. Eventually you get a little older and words should be just
However, if there are two people of the sort, in my mind it's fine if they want to sort it out that way. If one party does, and the other doesn't, the
police and courts should be involved. If one person escalates it by using or brandishing weapons, it crosses a very, very thin and unmovable line.
This is the problem now-a-days with gangs and the like. People can't throw down without a knife or gun coming out. And even if someone wins, it seems
like they can't even accept the win, they gotta be a "big" man and start stepping on the guys head when he already yielded or went unconscious.
