Some want to beat up on people and get away with it. Sociopathy at its finest.

    Why such a stubborn insistence on distinguishing between the two? A rifle is a weapon, thus an assault rifle is an assault weapon. Similarly, an assault knife would be an assault weapon as well. Sound good? Good! We're all happy again.

    Legitimacy to yelling, cursing & agressive posture, yes. Those are perfectly valid demonstrations of the will to use force.

    Raising a gun as a threat, however, is not valid. That's a crime. A bystander would have been justified in shooting that cop for it.

    ... of course "the content and context" are what is relevant... but you addressed "the post". Nice!
    I think you're the first person who's ever realy cought onto that. Much like how one can respond to a question without answering the question.

    If this is the same video I viewed earlier today, that cop was out of control. He looked scared to death and it looked like he had his finger on the trigger of his weapon. His actions could have turned the protest into an even more hostile situation.

    The MRAP I'm not worried about. Those were made for a war we're trying to get out of so it was either give all those MRAPs to hadji (**** that) or bring them home and re-purpose them. An MRAP isn't going to make or brake a civil disterbance, its just an armored truck.

    The .50cal machinegun is intended for use against equiptment and structures. Does the US forsee a confrontation with a mexican cartell? This weapon systom is perfectly useless against a civil uprising or insurrection.

    Getting it wrong gives people the wrong immage, and then the next time another voly of gun control comes around and people hear "assult weapon" they will recall the immage of this bully cop and be more inclined to support some gun control....when in fact the gun control proposed won't even adress the actual kind of gun that officer was actualy holding.

    Its a bait & switch.

    It sounds like the man made a mistake.

    Maybe he was having a bad day.

    Who reacts perfectly 100% of the time?

    I don't believe hat person exists.

    Most of us do the best that we can do and hope that it's good enough.

    When you put a gun in your hand, you must be perfect in all ways. If you can't be perfect, don't pick the gun up. Go be a sucessful tradesman, but the profession of arms is not for you.

    And that is why they should not be police officers.
