    That's not because it's a dangerous weapon, but because it looks like one. A cop would not be justified in shooting someone if they knew it was a pellet gun.

    sure they would.

    if you are holding a hammer, and refuse to put it down, a cop can kill you.

    The system is fundamentally flawed. Most cops are good cops and they don't like it anymore than you or I do. But they gotta eat and feed their family too.
    True, but then who is pressured how much and in which ways.

    I'm under pressure to do a together thing with Mrs. Thicket at the moment. I'd like to return to this later re: what Arizona has discovered a year after its CCW law.
