I'm sure they didn't miss him accidentally. He's a lucky guy.

I was once seriously threatened by a guy wielding a claw hammer. Wish I'd had a taser or stun gun.., or a hammer.

It's the ball peens that are the killers. Why they don't require permits is beyond me. You'd have to complete a six hour carpentry for criminals course to get one, of course...

Well, they shoot at guys with hammers while not being around when the more serious situations arise. A woman out my way killed a total of 8 recently and it wasn't the cops who took her down, but herself. After shooting her 14-year-old in the head, she took her own life. She should have never messed with the married man, and he shouldn't have messed with her. It was a very strained love triangle, and his wife had sued her.

Wield a hammmer, get nailed by a taser. Sounds reasonable to me. The gun,?.. not so much.

Yes, but the cops in the story also used guns. Cops who are overly quick to go for firearms are generally not trained well in taking the suspect down with less than lethal force. That used to be more of a problem with lady cops. They scared easily and automatically thought to go for the gun.

Too bad with the recent mass killing out my way that they couldn't figure out in advance that she was going to do all that and put her down or at least arrest her before she had the opportunity.

Hammers don't kill people, and people don't kill hammers. But paper covers rock; and rock break scissors...
Think it's easier in Afghanistan where everybody just kills everybody.

I think all criminals should be required to wear necklaces similar to life alert or whatever it is that they push a button when they need EMS. They would have to wear necklace and they’d be required to push the button prior to committing a crime. Like Crime alert. I think that would work!

But all the necklaces would get stolen.

I can hear the conversation , why aren't you catching real criminals in stead of stopping me ....

maybe they don't have banks in mobile units and the highway man is a thing of the past...
perhaps it is usually the attempt to commit a crime [is to go undetected], nothing like a roulette game of say speeding ....then when one is caught , whine like a little baby....

as BARNY once said if I let you do 56 today you will do 57 tomorrow , and etc etc etc ....

DAD: "where have you been . I said 11:00, is is now 11:30 "????
but DAD ..... "ok " don't let it happen again ...

next week/end it is now 12:00 ???????? you are the law in your house alright
