    I'm a priest, not a cop. You'd have to get details from them. I've had several conversions with cops and I know they can't use their guns in the way you suggest. Every time they discharge their weapon there is an investigation. It's a safety thing so we don't have trigger happy vigilante cops. They also want to ensure the punishment fits the crime. You don't get shot in the back because you ran from the police.

    So Johnny Sprinterperson can rape a girl, and when the police come, Johnny can run away and that's the end of it, then?

    I'm not debating what they should do, just noting that the police have clear rules of engagement, so they aren't allowed to act in the ways you suggest. Whether they should or not is another question.

    It is not simply the threat of a gun that makes most people listen to the police.

    Rev, I know you normally have peace and love in your heart. Don't let DODO put anger and frustration in there with them.

    So do we still need guns or can we rely on the peace and love in RJKarl's heart?

    I wonder what percentage of those who bought the spammed penile enlargement products have guns.

    With investigative police work. Usually criminals are pretty dumb and they get caught.

    Of course not.

    Please post details about when you were tased and/or pepper sprayed. I'd like to know you are telling me the truth.

    99% of a cop's authority comes with how he handles himself. The taser and gun are for when the authority goes away and lives are at risk.

    Just curious, what would you like to know? I haven't had either done, but I know quite a few who have.

    Each agency has policy and procedure that details how and when deadly force can be used.

    The vast majority of cops take their jobs and firearms very seriously.

    I haven't even read any of this thread, but it doesn't seem pertinent or important.

    Let's start a thread to keep track of all of the injuries from drunk driving or drug overdoses while we're at it...

    we used to tase each other all the time at drunk HS parties. great fun.

    never seen someone get shot with the police version though. I'd imagine it's the antithesis of fun.

    Sure, if our injuries from drunk driving or drug overdoses are way, way out of whack with the numbers from other industrialized countries and indicate a deeper societal problem.
