    Why would anyone with half a brain take such a job in the first place? Here ya go, of course any knob with a complaint can now sue you and at the very least tie you up in court for years.

    It's a damn good thing we have people with real skills and a functioning brain setting those standards rather than the cop haters here.

    maybe by your research. I have found different findings.

    Now that this cop is no longer employed, he can get a job as a night watchman. He will then be free to cuss all he wants while he makes his rounds at some empty warehouse somewhere.

    Here's hoping he finds a position in another department, in your community.

    You dont know much about charges and trial dates do you? You may wait months for your property or never get it back, even if the police get them on your property. Otherwise? Good luck seeing it again, period.
    You can't physically restrain them but it's OK to shoot them? Really?

    I'd also like to know if there's a code of silence within PD's too. I have to believe there is because of all the corruption that was a pattern in Chicago, and some other cities.
    Thought you might find this interesting-
    there are a number of adverse consequences from having all officers carry guns all of the time and to feel empowered to use them. For one thing, the officers’ own guns are frequently used against them. A 2013 study found that 10 percent of officer fatalities were of officers shot with their own guns. It’s hard to know in how many more cases officers deploy their own guns out of fear that a suspect could use their firearm against them. But we do know that in the case of Michael Brown, officers are at least claiming Brown was trying to take their gun — not that Brown had his own.

    Perhaps the most self-evident adverse consequence is what Newburn calls the “potential for overreaction.” “We have seen in the not too distant past cases in St. Louis and elsewhere where it’s hard to see that it was advisable or necessary,” Newburn said. Most who study police shootings agree that fear is a primary motivating factor, particularly fear of other guns. In other recent police shootings, police killed individuals because they mistook a watering hose, a Wii remote, and cell phones for guns.

    Japan provides a different sort of contrast, because officers do carry guns. But almost no one else does. Police are also given more training than in the United States, and place a heavy focus on martial arts training because police “are expected to use [firearms] in only the rarest of circumstances,” according to David Kopel, who studied Japanese gun control. The message seems to be working, because Japanese cops have killed just one person in the past six years, according to the Economist.

    He might well do that. There must be a dozen different departments to choose from: city police, county sheriff, metro cop, hospital cop, park police, constable, department of public safety, etc.

    Actually I wouldn't have a problem with this, I'm moving in three or four months. Staying here in Texas, this cop would fit right in with many departments. Other departments he would have to improve his cussing and threatening abilities to even be considered for the job.

    You cant do either in any state but TX.

    You may be able to physically restrain them...if you are capable...but if you 'hurt' them I'm pretty sure you open yourself up to charges...if not municipal, then civil.

    No, you're just missing the point. If you want positive comments for LEO's I'm sure there's plenty in the gun forum.
