    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?
    how pathetic!
    a cop to tell them to cut it out maybe. but a gun pulled on people throwing snowballs?

    What a coward. There's no necessity in pulling a firearm in this situation at all.

    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

    War on what, that people can't act like decent human beings?

    I think the entire thing is out of context.

    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.

    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.
