  • Times you were able to talk out a situation and not used a weapon?

    "To win 100 battles out of 100 battles is not the acme of skill to subdue your opponent without fighting is." -Sun Tzu

    So I am wondering if you guys would want to share some stories and such of times where you were able to defuse a situation by talking and such and not needed to deploy a weapon or such?

    Many, Many, Many times--------------

    No, I don't wish to share on an open forum
    Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

    My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

          Yep, you're probably going to get a dump truck full of replies similar to those you've already received. No "non-disclosure" involved. We simply don't discuss issues such as this on an open forum, and with people we don't know.

            Almost every time; Almost.

            Yes, you are. Research Verbal Judo and you should be able to draw your own conclusion.

              Please stop using the phrase "and such" every time you type. That may be how you speak, but it is the same as typing, "umm," "like," and "you know."

                      You act like you think that most of what we do is show up at a scene an shoot, taser, or whoop some *** on most calls. For your information I use my most powerful weapon on every single call for service; my brain. Beyond that, there is nothing else I am willing to say.

                        By and large officers effect most of their arrests without using any force. You won't see that in your local papers though.

                          What they all said. I probably use force on less than 1% of my contacts...and that includes having spent 6 years on the midnight shift in the ghetto, where the use of force is uncommonly high.

                            If I used my most powerful weapon on every call, I would be arrested for indecent exposure.
