“Tammy Robinette made several huge errors in judgment while driving in Greene County on the night of October 4,” riverfronttimes.com reports. “Drinking and driving was a big one. That caused a sheriff’s deputy to pull her over. But then the 46-year-old plucked a pink-handled pistol from her bag, aimed at the deputy and pulled the trigger twice. The gun only clicked. It didn’t fire. The deputy’s gun, however, was in working order.” For all of you “cops are not special” types out there . . .
This is the kind of shit that cops potentially face EVERY TIME they pull over a car. Until she was pulled over, this foolish drunk (but then, I repeat myself) was already driving a loaded weapon capable of wiping out any number of innocent people. A close friend of mine lost his entire family to a drunk driver – wife, kids – gone in a blink. What cops do is very important. They deserve a certain amount of deference, even if they are assholes.
