    This is going to sound harsh but, cops aren't worth that level of protection. Again though, I think there is a lot of things the community could do to police itself though that the cops wouldn't be needed.

    Honestly, you should treat a toy gun, especially a bb gun, as if it was a real one.

    The idea of the power armor in this case is less for the protection of police and more to give them time to analyse a situation, even under imminent threat of being shot - perhaps even during/after being shot.


    But that's mainly bull****.

    My point here is that if you require too much of the police, you won't have good police.
    At the same time, if you require too little of the police, you won't have good police either.

    That's what happens when the video has low FPS and no audio. The cruiser window was down on the passenger side.

    While there are legal ways to rationalize a justification for the officer shooting, still, I don't like it. A lot. In the past, basically every boy played with toy guns outside and none had red tips. Hell, a red tip doesn't even mean it's fake. Why were those kids of generations past routinely gunned down then too? Something's very wrong with that happening.


    90% of those guns we played with in the past didn't look real.


    The one this kid had was an almost exact replica, replete with magazine.

    Yes, I went to the Colt site and said they make them in Blue finish, but they only make them in 5". The gun the kid had looked like it was at least a 6" barrel. Other wise known as a "Long Slide".

    Oh, cops are supposed to be able to identify every gun on the market and how long they were?



    You do know there are many makers of 1911 these days,
