Always the over abundance of fear. It then justifies the existence of the ones who carry the license to shoot others. Yes you have to take precautions when there are punks like this in the neighborhood.
Lt. and detective Ted said “No one was ever in any danger,”. Well no shit Cisco.
What is more important is this line and link -
Punk boy was said to be armed with a .25 caliber automatic handgun and was considered a threat to law enforcement.
Threat my ass! Possibly to a real stupid one and there's plenty of those. Big guns,dogs,planes and helicopters,various types of armored vehicles, more guns and personnel and more. Drones too. Coppers are loving the drones these days too much. These badges show up like flies on shit more so than not.
Are reporters taught /told to continually elevate cops into something they are not and that includes the danger factor as well.
It gets to be old shit and perpetuates the myth that badges need more and more always to keep up with you and I and threats from .25 caliber guns.
Take these people off the pedestal they have been elevated too. The piece made no mention of whether punk boy was packing that terribly intimidating 25.
