    Well we had our local homecoming for the football team this past week. Tradition here is for kids to buy old crappy vans and paint them our local school's colors and drive around and egg and paintball each other and naturally there is collateral damage. Well some little sweethearts decided to take along an ax and sledgehammer. Well the local pd got a call that some kids were chasing after another vehicle with an ax and sledgehammer. So the pd went and got them stopped and performed a felony stop. Well the kids and their parents are saying the pd used "too much force." I find people amazing, maybe their tune would change if they were the ones getting chased with an ax. Aparently the kiddies are also paintballing pedestrians, makes me wish I could do something about these turds

    Well, they'll get over it.
    What is it about, "Thou shalt not.....", do some people not understand?

      Turds parents:
      "What you pointed your guns at poor little Johnny sob sob He was just having fun he wasn't going to hurt anyone with the ax. sob sob You could have shot him sob sob Oh my poor little Johnny he now is suffering from post traumatic stress disorder"

      Bulls%^t, hey mom next time tell your poor innocent child, that "when the cop's tell you to put your hands up, go ahead and put the ax above your head and run towards them."

      This is absured punk kids got what they deserved and officers did the right thing, but I'm sure mommy and daddy will sue the dept. and the dept will aplogize for the actions taken. Here's your check ma am everything will be alright.

        Does not surprise me...

        Pretty typical response from the public that does not understand anything about our job and the precautions that we take for officer safety. Let your Brass do the explaining and keep doing your job like ya are... dont sweat it...

          Right now our local media and the public are all worked up about a teacher being arrested, and shockingly enough, handcuffed in front of his class for possessing child porn.

          I'm sorry, did the public forget that WE decide based off of training and experience how and when to make an arrest or in your case, felony stop?

          In our case, they're all upset because what if he's innocent. His reputation will have been tarnished due to the arrest in his class room!!!!

          I would hazard a guess, seeing how it's not my investigation, that a search warrant was probably executed that morning, the evidence was seized, and he was taken into custody.

          Does the public really think we just stumble along thinking, "Hey, I'm going to arrest a teacher today.", or "Let's take some kids down at gun point tonight for the hell of it!".

                Those were the great days! I remember being in grade 3 and getting in trouble for passing a note. The writer got spanked by the vice priniclpe while myself and another "passer" watched. I never passed another note while going to that school!!!

                And when I was in highshool I got caught by a Vancouver Police officer for skipping out. I tried to lie about my age and not being school. Each time I lied he stepped forward and I stepped back. After the third step and lie I received a two handed shove to the chest and found myself in a holly bush! Lesson learned that day - never lie to the police!!!

                Wouldn't it be nice to take a step back to the good old days? Or at least have that pendulum swing back closer to center.

                I really think that the various police organizations should have independant media liasions. Wouldn't it be great if everytime a something rediculous is mentioned in the media it was corrected.

                    That's why I am changing careers. I am tired of sitting by and watching this happen and not be able to do anything legal about it....

                      Our esteemed public, based on all the TV and movies, now know the best way to handle all these situations. No one ever gets hurt, no force is needed, all the nice felons do what they are told, and no one need be inconvienced. What a crock!! A large portion of my contacts with complaintants is to explain how long the process is in property recovery, court hearings and the like. It's not that I hate TV and the movies, I just wish they were accurate. Yeah I know - two chances - fat and none.

                        I was all for the felony stop. If Jon Q. Public knew half of the crap you guys go through maybe they would change their tune. Probably not but wouldn't it be nice

                          This is nuts! Junior has an axe or a sledgehammer & what may or may not be a paintball gun & these people are upset? I'd ask them what EXACTLY they wnated you to do! Out here anything like that would've warranted just what you did & booking the kids for Reckless Endangerment, if not Aggravated Assault! I think your bosses need to grow a pair & tel the public Junior got off easy & to quit bothering the Dept over doing its job. But in reality, lawsuits will follow, some poor off. will probably get disciplined & the media will have a Field Day with it.

                            I'm in HS and i agree homecoming goes too far that is completely unacceptable.
                            Two seniors got assaulted by some sophmores at our pep rally; its tradition for each class to taunt eachother a bit by waving their class flag in the other classes' faces, and they took it took seriously and we almost had a riot.
                            Well life is too short so love the one ya got cuz ya might get run over or ya might get shot.

                              This is one of the things I miss most about our last chief. Not only did he stand up for his officers, but he had the unique ability to explain things to irritated parents and ****ed-off citation recipients in such a manner that they left his office apologizing to him.

                              Not that our current chief doesn't back us up, but he just doesn't have the natural communication skills of his predecessor.
                              Caution and worry never accomplished anything.
