    ShinyTop I know what is right or wrong!

    I'd have shot. And I would not blame the deputy for shooting on hearing that sound.

    I would have made that idiot take the Room Temperature Challenge.

    Bingo. Moron is lucky to be alive as I'd have immediately emptied the magazine into him.

    Click through to the article and watch the video there.

    Deputy on a traffic stop. Has the driver get out. Driver's hands are both behind his back. You can clearly hear the driver rack the slide on a semi-auto pistol. Deputy doesn't shoot.

    Thanks. I can't say what I would do. I'd have to evaluate what I had for breakfast, my mood, and myriad of other emotional things from the recent past, etc...

    Thankfully, the officer survived the encounter... this time. Sadly, the young officers of today feel that their every move is scrutinized and criticized and, because of this, they hesitate to take action. Administrations too willing to sacrifice an officer for political gain, false claims by various groups of wrong doing on the part of the officer, Monday morning quarterbacking by news media and groups with an agenda, etc... When action is survival, hesitation is a killer. I'm very fortunate in the fact that I earned my retirement and no longer have to deal with these situations. My life is more important than political correctness. In this instance, there would have been a shit storm of lead flying down range. Justified shoot...
