What was scariest to me was the idiot cop from Madison who caused a car wreck. I'm pretty familiar with the layout of that part of Jackson & Madison is about a good half hr away from the airport area.

What the f**k could he have done by rushing to the scene? Weren't there 10 to 20 other in-county(that's Rankin County, I am pretty sure) sheriff's deputies or city-police(Brandon & Pearl are right there) who could have responded? Don't they have M16 automatic weapons on the base or @ least Glocks or semi-auto pistols to respond to such an event "in-house?" I also know(I've flown from that airport before) that they have in-house airport cops there who could have responded.

Why is it when there's an event that 50 to 100 cops from the surrounding 50 square miles all have to converge thinking one or 2 extra dudes is gonna make a difference? Regular cops have AR15 semi-autos if not full auto rifles in their trunks & tactical police shotguns(Mossbergs, I think, good products)-- do they really need a jackass with an oversized ego causing the taxpayer thousands in damage to a vehicle & who could potentially have killed somebody over a stupid starter pistol designed to scare away buzzards?

The local cops up there need better personnel protocols on responses. Cops from Madison don't need to travel halfway across the next county over to respond to something when the city & county police were more than manpower enough....talk about blown out of proportion & a gross risky waste of taxpayer funds in this deep recession.
