Reply Yeah, there is no video – at least by the time I got e-mail from ttag; same as the”kid uses ar against home invaders,” it went poof. Wazzup wit dat? Russ Reply Probably some sort of equipment failure. Budget cuts you know. Reply Said it before, say it again, COPS SHOW UP AFTER THE CRIME IS OVER. Reply This happen a couple of years ago. Why bring it up now. Its been taken care of by the city. Not all cops are like these. Reply Not quite. Reporter said one was terminated in 2012. The others are still in the disciplinary process. That means still employed, pulling down a paycheck. Reply Well it only takes one not to show up when there is someone who really needs help. As we know when they get a call they have to be there. Any other time it is not their responsibility. There was a time when we called in a hit and run that destroyed our car and almost killed a women in a school zone. The cop took over an hour to come. There was another incident where a drunk women crashed into our car and attempted to drive off. We had stopped her by blocking the car and taking her keys. What did the cops do? When they arrived they flirted with her and called her mom to come pick her up. Then they left her in the car. There are many more stories… but you say that not all cops are like that. I’m stilling waiting to meet one that isn’t. Reply So you are saying that we can trust other government employees will not neglect their duty to handle these officers who neglected their duty. Some people just don’t get it. Reply This just made the news today in places other than TTAG, so that’s why bring it up now. And we know not all cops are like this, but they suffer the same disabilities as gun owners–one bad apple spoils the barrel. Reply Well, in this case their Sergent was involved. This is a case of faulty leadership. When your “boss” is having coffee with you it seems like it’s ok, after all, we all know in government it isn’t how well you perform but who you perform for that gets you promoted. Reply Just 99% of them. Reply Uh-UH!! I bet there were DOUGHNUTS, too! Let the kid choke; I gotta GLAZED. Reply They said it was 2010. The time stamp clearly shows 2011. Either way, of course there are bad cops. If this is true, they should be terminated. Reply Terminated? Should it be the T-800, T-1000 or the T-X? Reply The taxtaker parasite armed agents of the terror state only exist to collect revenue from the tax livestock….Oh…And to draw a chalk line around dead bodies. Anything else? Reply Well since you asked, how about not being batshit crazy? That always helps. There’s a difference between “cops are not always on scene when needed and some of them are irresponsible and/or abusive schmucks” and the whole “armed terrorist livestock tax collectors” yadda yadda. Reply If you serve the state you are a thug, plain and simple. Reply Y’know, when I was working in Antarctica for the NSF, I didn’t FEEL like a thug. I’ll bet that Alexander Hamilton wasn’t one, either. Russ Christoff must have went to publik skewl…… Well Russ, since you were being paid with money taken from others by force, you were a thug. Hamilton was a thug who got what he deserved. Jesus H dude. Second shooter? Moon landing never happened? The Earth is flat? Reply Dude the flat Earth myth is a myth. It was common knowledge by Colon’s time that the Earth was not flat, users of this trope undermine their own argument by being as ignorant as they are accusing others of being. Reply Yeah in Oregon for local cops you have to rob a coffee shop to get a Police response. Reply Especially Voodoo Donuts. Reply WTF does this have to do with TTAG? Reply Maybe because the civilian disarmament lobby would have us put our self defense in the hands of the po-po. Maybe because of the horror expressed at the idea of armed security in schools…better to call 911, they’ll be right there. Really. Reply Yep. For all intents and purposes, YOU are the first responder, whether you like it or not. Reply San Jose California has spent more than a year under a moratorium on police responding to “unverified burglary alarms”: http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2011/12/28/cash-strapped-sjpd-wont-respond-to-all-burglar-alarms/ The effects are being seen: http://www.mercurynews.com/internal-affairs/ci_22156709/internal-affairs-neighbors-cant-get-san-jose-police Reply When seconds count, the police are only a minutes away; depending on the size of their latte or how hot their mall employee girlfriend is or whether they’re napping under a tree in the park. I think that’s how the saying goes. Reply Once again, thank God I live where I do. We have a sheriff’s department that has responded promptly to every call. Even when they were just suspicious activity calls, (we’ve had 2 recently which both turned out OK) they were there within 5 minutes. The conduct on the video is inexcusable. Reply My local PD always responds in less than two minutes. If the call sounds serious, two squad cars in that time frame. A gun involved? Six cars. Drive a few miles over to the city? 45 minutes to respond to a 911 call by a woman reporting she was being raped. The rape went on until the PD eventually showed up and the rapist fled on foot. Big city forces absolutely develop huge entropy due to big union power. I’m not the least anti-LEO, until a department morphs into a benefits factory. Reply The one time I had reason to call the San Francisco PD with a 911 call (burglar breaking into a car behind my apartment), they were on scene in 38 seconds. Maybe it was a quiet night, or my timing was propitious to an officer nearby. But I was impressed. And they nabbed the BG in the act to boot. Reply Yep. The good ol’ shire reeve is an elected official in most counties, gives you more incentives to do your job right. They don’t always have the enforcement abilities they should though (Massachusetts). Note that it’s the sheriffs across the country that are saying they won’t enforce unconstitutional gun laws. Reply My local SO is wonderful. If you call them, as they themselves say, “someone’s going to get arrested.” Even if it’s you for wasting their time. They’re some pretty tough dudes who have no policy whatsoever regulating them popping people’s pets regardless of whether they are a threat or not. They’re cool cats who bribe the Civilian Review Board members with all sorts of trips, outings and nice things. They’ll even kick your ass when you’re handcuffed and in the paddock and they’ll get away with it because you’re black and said something bad about their mothers! Yeah, I love my local police. Don’t believe the “few bad apples” stuff. It’s B.S. When they’re rotten the whole bushel needs to be thrown out because the most corrupt are at the top. Reply Parasites, screwing over the other officers trying to do their job. Blue Falcons! Reply Blue Falcon! Wow that takes me back to the service! Reply Happens all the time all over the country. And in Canada too. Reply A few of the officers were of latino heritage, obviously we’re not factoring in the cultural importance of the siesta. This video proves nothing except how racist we all must be. Reply There is now diet coke all over my laptop. Thanks. Reply Where I live, I AM 911. I know many good LEO’s. These aren’t representative of them but, in fact, excellent examples of why folks hate cops. Reply I am confident that the vast majority of law enforcement are serious about doing their jobs as well as possible, however, they are not a bodyguard service and they are not “crime prevention” they are “law enforcement” which is by nature, more about investigation and evidence gathering. The idea that someone else will protect you from harm at all times in all places is absurd. Reply The most extreme example of cops taking an extended break? Everyone’s heard of the Miami FBI Shootout. You know, the one that led to the 10mm, then .40 cal. As the agents were getting shot to pieces the two agents with the submachine guns reportedly ignored the call because they were allegedly hanging out with a hot waitress at a local diner. Allegedly having sex in a backroom. Allegedly. Hey, but what’s a coffee break, eh? Reply And the stupid pigs in NY expect you to have only seven pills in guns that hold 13-19 while defending your home or person while they can have STANDARD sized mags. God how evil. Libtards. Reply Most people have been so indoctrinated by their publik skewls that they have no idea what is going on around them. It is by design. This, in reallity, is your station in life: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xbp6umQT58A Got it! Reply …and you are free? So you didn’t go to public school? I’m willing to bet you were home schooled by William Cooper himself. Or at least by someone who knows his works by heart. Maybe you should have gone to publik skewls (sic) with the rest of us. You’d probably be a little better off, indoctrinated. Follow the white rabbit Reply I am a little saddened to see ttag post nonsense like this. It does nothing for the cause except embolden law enforcement officers against us. Instead of pulling a finestein and citing the rarity why not focus on the bigger picture: most cops are good honest people that risk their lives both on and off the job (because those gang bangers are all about retribution) and the fact is that they just can’t physically get to the crime fast enough to stop it. Love the blog but not silly posts like these. Reply “Matt says: February 6, 2013 at 19:02 I am a little saddened to see ttag post nonsense like this.

Antis will have you thinking that you don’t need a gun. You need to wait for help from the police. This post merely proves the point that there is no waiting for help. How can you not see that? Reply people ridiculed the lack of security that permitted a simple employee such access. Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!
