Yeah and I call bullshit on that. The last cop that died in the line of duty around here had a heart attack at his desk because he was a pudgy bastard. That was 10 years ago. Another one got picked off by a car during a traffic stop... 12 years ago?.

Only in the movies!.

And in a situation like this?. Where is the bean bag shotgun?.

All I would have carried.

Some of the police shootings here lately...

Shot an unarmed drug dealer.

Shot a 19 year old black pregnant girl for trying to book from a traffic stop.

Shot a 5' tall little pipsqueak mental patient in a MAX
SECURITY mental hospital... unarmed. The hospital was fully locked down.

Shot a mentally ill lady with a knife. A threat?. She was 40 feet away.

Uh huh?. Dirty Harry?.
