LEO

Yeah huge shocker that they don’t want to be burdened with all the problems when ordinary citizens could take care of some of them.

Police-One-Law-Enforcement-Survey

Make sure you head over to PoliceOne to check out all the survey questions and the results.  Some of them might surprise you, but on the other hand if you know police officers chances are you won’t be surprised.

You can hit up the PDF with the full questions and results of the survey – HERE

I like the idea of the survey a lot, but I really wish that PoliceOne would have spent the time to get it out to more than 15,000 officers.  Sure that sounds like a decent number at first though, but in reality the NYPD alone has more than double that.  Yea I know it says they sent it to all 400,000 of their verified LEO forum members, so that’s pretty said only 15,000 cared enough to respond.  They should have offered an incentive like a free coffee / donut to drive response rates up *zing*.  I’m kidding of course… that job has to be the most thankless one on the planet, and I have a lot of respect for everyone that does it properly.

Thoughts?

And backs him down:

I was detained by Portland PD officer J McDonald on 26MAY2012. He detains me without suspicion of any criminal activity in violation of Delaware v Prouse. He admits his sole reason for stopping me is my legally carried firearm in violation of US v DeBerry. He seizes my weapon with no reasonable suspicion that I’ve committed a crime in violation of Terry v Ohio. He demands my ID without reasonable suspicion in violation of Hiibel v Nevada

LOL burn.  That’s exactly what I like to see.  As I always say on the blog… if you can’t handle the laws in the state / country / etc.. that you live in, then move.  That especially goes for those PAID to enforce them.  I am pro Law Enforcement, but the fact is there is only one version of the law they are paid to enforce… so if you are a LEO and you have your own agenda, and that includes trying to trick people into waiving their rights, then please do everyone a favor and find a new career.

Thank god for cameras.

So now what?  The officer in the video violated 4 different laws according to the person taking the video.  Will anything happen?  Should anything happen?

Looking through the MSNBC Guinness Book Of Records anniversary photos today, I came across one that oozed both awesomeness and tacticalness… #26:

Naturally I had to see more, so I checked YouTube…

Seeing it rip through the house, and out into the snow is absolutely incredible!

Can you imagine the look on a bad guys’ face when one of those cruises through the door and is staring them down.

I wonder what the specs on the armor are?

I am curious to also know the price on one of these… Not that they would be available for non L.E. purchase anyway.

I want EVERYTHING that Howe & Howe makes!  If you get a chance check out the page for the Mini Rip, which is actually available to consumers.  Bad news is that it’s $55000

AND NOW….

Some of the less impressive “records”:

  • Longest distance for a person pulled by a horse while being on fire (#28)
  • Most eggs crushed with head in one minute (#33)

I could go on and on… but those two in the 52 picture set take the cake as far as stupidity goes.

I don’t know how you set up a meeting with a representative from the Guinness book (besides going on one of those TV shows), but I’m pretty confident that I could beat a number of those useless records with very little practice or expense. I don’t really know what I would have to gain from that though, besides most of my friends and family being embarrassed they know me.

Seeing as the criteria to get into the book seems to be pretty loose, I should motion to get entry for a new record… “Most compulsive checks for new stories to blog about in one day” or “Most time spent thinking about guns in one day”
