    This will make Loren's head spin

    "An off-duty officer was wounded by "friendly fire" as police looked for suspects after a stolen vehicle fled police and crashed late Wednesday."

    "Another officer just arriving at the scene saw the off-duty officer get up and, not knowing he was an officer, fired his weapon once at the man. He hit the off-duty officer in the arm, the department said."

    So you're telling me that some American police officers are so skittish and undisciplined that they're now shooting each other? Isn't that great?
    Sure, shooting them in the back is illegal in those circumstances, but e cop getting convicted is not doing any good to the dead guy.

    The guy was not in uniform. I hope he will be OK, but that's pretty funny.

    I'm glad someone started a thread on this important political issue.

    I can't wait until the people who support skittish police officers shooting each other show up so I can school them in the errors of that position.

    What error would that be?

    We(society in general) have already decided that a badge, combined with fear, is a license to kill. If a police officer happens to be the victim, there's no reason to think this would change things.

    We need to remember, current policy is whatever was let by, last time. Written laws and statutes have no real bearing, when practice defines policy.

    A police officer shooting a citizen, or another police officer, is acceptable, because it's accepted.

    That would only work in one of those shootouts where both gunslingers are mortally wounded.
    This is just the scared and armed shooting, not necessarily targeting scared and
    armed.
    There may be no meaning to this world, but that does not mean that what I do is meaningless.

    Sure, if "trolling" means decisively taking a relevant position on the thread topic.
