  • War Stories

    Every one likes to tell war stories. Since the last two threads I started were a flop maybe this one will be a little more enjoyable.

    My favorite war story to tell would be right after I got my first job in LE "Arcadia Kansas". My FTO consisted of one question and three statements. Do you have your own gun and equipment? "yes" Here is a map. Here is a Key to the car. Park it in the old fire building when youre done. "ok".
    My first evening on patrol I learned the one plus one rule and that when you intend to arrest or detain the cuffs always go on. I decided to stop a car for a tail light out. I grabbed my ten codes sheet and said "371 county 10-45", go ahead 371, "I'll be out with abc123 at Main and Race street". 10-4 2215 hours. I made my approach feeling confident in my ability to thouroughly screw the perverbial pooch. The next thing I know there is an sks pointing barrel up sitting in the passenger floor board. I advised my dispatch that the subject was "signal 1" with a long gun. I remembered that from a ridealong. Then they asked if I was 10-36. I didn't usually carry a 10 codes sheet with me so I didn't know what the hell they were talking about. Common sense told me to seperate him from the gun so I had him step out of the car. Then one thing led to another and the tag was stolen and the driver was suspended. I had him place his hands on the car and began to pat him down before cuffing him. The next thing I knew he says "I cant go back to jail" and pushes off of the car knocking me backwards and takes off running. I thought to myself this guy is running on me maybe I should chase him. After he got a pretty good jump I ran after him. I finally got caught up to him after a couple of blocks. I had a 6D mag light in one hand and a 26 inch asp in the other I swung down at him and caught him on both sides of his neck as hard as I could. This shock made him stumble and go head first into a propane tank. Yeah! I got him, I thought to myself he was on the ground in severe pain and I had enough adrenaline running through me to lift a truck. He started yelling "I give, I give" and rolled over and assumed the cuffing position without further incident. When I got to the jail I listened to the tape of my radio transmissions and to my suprise they were pretty clear. Except for one time i didn't let off of the mic key fast enough and you hear me saying "Get the #^@%# on the ground or I'll shoot you in the back" I didn't live that down for about a month and still the dispatcher that was working that night gives me crap about it. NOTE TO ROOKIES " It is not acceptible to hit someone in the neck with your baton and flashlight for simply running from you. " To show you how green I was I booked him in on "flee and elude" instead of obstruction LOL.

    Any one else???

    We had a report of vehicle burglars working in a local park. We moved into the area and semi-surrounded a large wooded area. I was hiding between two rows of evergreens and the suspects were running my way. I was way outnumbered and not nearly fast enough to catch these boppers. As they approached, I opened the 870 about halfway and slammed it home on an empty chamber. I do not know where it came from, but I yelled "Freeze or Die!" Then I about laughed myself into tears as two of them slid by on their bellies, trying to stop. Turned out they were having and underage party, a little beer and a load of fear.

    The LT at the end of shift got with me and told me that was cute, he also encouraged me not to use it again. Glen

      I got dispatched to a fight in progress at one of our local parks. I am the first to arrive and I see three guys in what I can only describe as a rugby scrum. It wasn't clear who was fighting who and they really weren't making much progress at it. I exit my patrol car and expand my baton while yelling for them to get on the ground. My lieutenant is responding and was close enough to hear the audio from the video system. He also had a clear view of the scene as it was an open area. Lieutenant said he first thought I had racked the shotgun and when he looked over he almost wrecked his car for laughing. Apparently the three guys involved also thought I had racked a shotgun because they were ALL doing a Superman style dive through the air to comply with my command.

      So, now I just speak softly and carry a 12 gauge ASP.
