  • Scariest Moment as an LEO

    Just wondering what the scarriest moment as an LEO was for everyone
    Im not an LEO yet but i think the scariest thing so far for me was the instructor im going to have for Law Enforcement Technology telling me how a few years ago one of his students was shot a few days after he graduated because someone from a gang new he was going to be a cop

    didnt scare me away from the job at all, just kind of a sobering thought and made me want to be an LEO all that much more to get people like that off the streets

    My buddy had a really close call one night. Upon getting off work one night, he was greeted by his wife and girlfriend out in the parking lot.

                  Very cool, the ending part anyways. Bet you wish you guys had tazers. I imagine after seeing your friend drop like a dead fly and spaz on the ground I'd be done fighting.

                          We don't do much LE on our base, but probably the scariest moment was not to long ago, this nutjob pulled up to our gate (I was the overwatch) in what appeared to be chemical warfare gear, including a face mask, which he removed shortly before approaching our gate. He was driving a hand painted white and lime green truck. He told us he was under direct orders from our CO (who was deployed at the time) and that we needed to call our CO, who would know this guy. Well, we directed him to our parking space at the gate shack where unauthorized people wait for an escort official or the like. We called down our flight sergeant, and I began observing the man while my leader proceeded to deal with the traffic. Our sgt arrived, and began questioning the man, at which point the man told our sgt that he only needed to get a plane ride to dc as he had a top secret meeting with the prez that afternoon. At which point he exited his vehicle and became very vocal, and making threatening gestures. We kept him 'entertained' while we waited for local LE to show. (Our base is proprietary jurisdiction, locals get to deal with this usually) The local LE decided to let him go, stupidly. When we got the background back on the guy somewhat later, turned out he was wanted by same local agency for possesion of firearms, discharing firearms in city limits, and fleeing from an officer. Also, a few days later the Residant Agent in Charge, USSS paid me a visit inquiring as to the man.

                            People like that would not back down after seeing one of their friends zapped. It would **** them off even more. Tazers are good but sometimes people need to see the business end of a pistol.

                              ***Former LEO*** I was working traffic in the "GOOD" part of town. Clocked a person at 48 in 35 and stopped him. He was about 6'2 and 250 easy. He was higher then a kite on crack and had some in his hand that he was attempting to swallow. I grabbed it from him and the fight was on. I fought him for 5 minutes until my first backup showed up and another 4 minutes until we got him into custody. That was a long 9 minutes.
