    OMG! Who the **** cares? It is a weapon at point blank range that will kill a person dead. I swear I will never understand the anal bull**** about this differentiation.

    Best. Statement. This. Month.

    Have you ever played "Mad Libs?" Fill in the underlined with your choice of animal, vegetable, or mineral.

    That statement provides infinite possibilities.... "Drunken Jenga" was getting old!



    That said, the officer was out of line and should be pulled from this duty immediately and perhaps should also have a long, forced, break from any duty. It's impossible to know what stress he's been under the past couple of weeks in Ferguson - probably no less stressful than some have had trouble coping with in wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. The officer is clearly at a dangerous point in his mental state, but I'm not prepared to call him a terrorist.
    I don't discount stress or even possible PTSD. That would explain a lot.

    However, as a police officer he is meant to be held to a higher standard than us "mere mortals." That's his job.

    I do. He is a public servant that is paid by the very people he is telling to **** off. It is totally unprofessional and he should be fired for that reason alone. He should be jailed for threatening to kill people after that. He should have been shot by the other cops who have no problem shooting a guy with a knife, in fact.

    You do. That's why you put those words in your post. Attention to detail.

    I saw a dozen feet of distance between the cop and the reporter, which means it wasn't point-blank.

    Some of us would like to keep our assult weapons and having you put fear in peoples minds only fuels gun control. Please be accurate in your speach.

    I was only talking about the **** you comment, not about the death threat, that is in a whole league of his own.

    And the police is not going to shoot another cop unless there is no other option than physical violence. That high standard should however be used when confronting the general public too.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    No. I do not care about the type of gun. I care about why you care.

    I saw a dozen feet of distance between the cop and the reporter, which means it wasn't point-blank.
    In external ballistics, point-blank range is the distance between a firearm and a target of a given size such that the bullet in flight is expected to strike the target without adjusting the elevation of the firearm.

    Point-blank range - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Some of us would like to keep our assult weapons and having you put fear in peoples minds only fuels gun control. Please be accurate in your speach
    What fear did I put out there Jerry? You know better than to play those games with me.

    ... and I see you caught that "speach" typo already because we need to be equally accurate in our speech.

    Well, again... Given how they were shouting at people not to throw things, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that those people really weren't all that "peaceful" in the first place. They looked a lot more like an angry mob going out of their way to provoke a response.

    Frankly, they got what they were looking for.

    I do agree that the police officer's response was out of line. However, that is exactly why he was removed from the situation by the other officers on the scene, and has since been suspended pending investigation.

    If I were to put money on it, I'd bet that the cop in question probably got hit by an object thrown by some belligerent jackass in the crowd, and that's why he flipped out.

    The man has a bad attitude, but that can be adjusted.
