Saw that on the news. Fucked up!
i heard something about throwing snowballs at cars, if they did that, thats stupid, still the cop should have spoke with them before bringing a gun into it
does that mean kids need a gun pulled on them?
a cop to tell them to cut it out maybe. but a gun pulled on people throwing snowballs?
I've edited my post again and added more to it, u must have missed it
What a coward. There's no necessity in pulling a firearm in this situation at all.
I sympathize with the cop.
Kids were a bunch of pricks.
I think he hid behind the gun
they threw snowballs at his hummer
and when he got out and pulled the gun, he was not in uniform nor did he identify himself as a cop
this guy should be fired or should receive a lashing or soemthing
I can't believe that this is the kind of world we live in. I watched that video. Absolutely ridiculous!
That he pulled the gun or how the crowd acted?
This Is War.
War on what, that people can't act like decent human beings?
I think the entire thing is out of context.
Both. In that order.
Wow, he's crazy... I might have done the same on a bad day though.
"According to an eyewitness, a D.C. Police detective went nuts after kids pelted his Hummer with snowballs at 14th and U Streets NW this afternoon."
Just for reference, he pulled the gun on these adults only after he got out of his car and was pelted with snowballs until he dropped his police radio in the snow. These adults (or at the very least, they looked like adults. They were most certainly not children) did not realize they were committing what the law would constitute as assault on a police officer, and technically what they did could be considered a felony. He did not point the gun at anyone, he pulled it out to show people he wasnt to be fucked around with.
Was it right? No, but these adults got just what was coming to them. They wanted to pelt the shit out of a person with snowballs thinking it was funny, and they got a gun pulled on them by a cop. If this was an old woman who decided to pull a gun on these guys, people would call her brave. The cop should be punished, but considering this is Washington DC, these punk frat boys should consider themselves lucky, as DC has a serious crime problem, and the person popping out of that Hummer could very well have been someone not afraid to put bullets in a bunch of idiots who thinks nothing can harm them.
so as a civilian
do I have the right to pull out my pistol if someone throws a snowball at me or my car?
If a group of 20+ is pelting you with snowballs and harassing you yes.
harrassing? now you are being absurd
this guy chose to get out of the vehicle and draw a pistol, then they started yelling at him.
I mean for goodness sake....... since when are snowballs a threat to your life?
were the snowballs laced iwth anthrax?
did osama make them?
Whats next? shooting kids for chinese door knocking?
public executions for toile papering a house?
decapitation for cussing?
So if a group of ppl hit my car with a snowball, I have the right to get out and pull a gun on them..........? That does not make sense
That is not self defense. That is being a dick.
