The bloody idiots will just not get it through their heads... if someone is brandishing a weapon in public, especially while committing or attempting to commit a crime, they deserve the maximum response from the law.
The cop should not be trying to determine if it's real or not. Assume it's real. There is no difference. They just became a criminal for gods sakes, don't be nice!
If an "innocent kid" is waving a toy gun in public, he's obviously not innocent and needs to learn a life lesson really quickly courtesy of the ETF!
But as per usual, punish the majority for one persons mistake.
Ah will it ever end, next we'll be banning knives like they are trying to do in the UK.
The first part of journalism my friend is to know how to walk that tight rope... as to get one's message across without backing down on what point is trying to be made.
I will not be rude to anyone who I speak to and will not be speaking to any regular "police officier" - I want the head of the task force. If I have to track everyone down and ultimately talk to the top cop as they call it, I will.
As for the member who contacted the NRA - can that person please contact me ASAP! I need to know who and what was said.
Also, if someone could please email me the regulations as to airsoft ownage, etc. I need as much information as possible to gather an arguement/questions.
Seeing as no one is actually posting questions they would like answered in an intelligent fashion, I am left but to make them on my own.
