    Way to just shoot without IDing anyone. Sucks for Edwards.

    Thats pretty shitty. But thats what happens when you make it illegal for regular people to have guns. Anybody not wearing a badge with a gun = automatic bad guy.

    What's the proper procedure for ID'ing yourself if you're a plains clothes LEO and don't have a badge on yourself?

    running down the street with a gun drawn and not stopping when a cop tells you too won't work out for you in the long run.

    Cops with firearms are dangerous. Their lack of firearms training is scary.

    The other cop, also in plain clothing just shot at Edwards as he was getting out of the car. No one announced that they were cops.

    Shitty situation and training all around.

    If your on duty, and UC or in plain clothes, many will have a color of the day. In big cities it's told to patrol units at shift change. At least that is what the NYPD used to do.

    Its fucking true. People dont think regular citizens have enough training, cops arent much better.

    Sorry but I gotta partially agree with him. Far too many cops rarely touch a gun other than to gear up and for post.

    OK you're right. All cops are excellent shooters because a few actually train.

    Of course not, but I'm sure you'll agree that there are more officers that dont care about shooting than ones that do.

    I didnt say all cops cant shoot. My post was more directed at liberals saying we shouldnt have guns because we dont have the same training as cops.

    Huh. And people wanted to hang that NOPD cop for failing to gun down a shooter because he didn't know WHY the guy was shooting yet.

    Bunch of people poo-pooed the idea that the possibility of the shooter being a UC or PC was ridiculous.
