    You may not care, but the cop surely would.

    Try seeing this issue from the perspective of the police officer.

    Perspective of the police officer: a murderer is going to kill me, no matter where the law says he has to store his firearm.

    Yes, it is the "perspective of the police officer" at the moment he sees a firearm where a minute before he was told there wasn't one. Not sure what the second part of your statement has to do with the situation that day in Indiana.

    Thats a generalisation and strongly biased way to put it.

    A cop must constantly fear for his life and be aware of potential threats to himself.

    I would rather see some people scream out "scandal" when a cop arrests someone who didn`t have bad intentions, than seeing a cop injured or killed during duty because he was scared of a potential public outcry resulting out of his actions.

    He was not a murderer, nor was he aggressive.

    Yes, and to prevent that, I'm going to draw my own weapon and yank his ass out of the car before he has a chance. I'm glad we've come to an agreement on the subject.
