Sounds like Oswego taxpayers may have to payout a settlement to this guy.
Not a good situation.
Makes no sense to pull a gun out in this trivial situation.

Most cops have an inferiority complex and therefore need a weapon so they can gain the confidence that they are otherwise lacking. If you were to take their guns away, they would just run into a corner and cower like a little child.

It's really too bad that this "deputy" didn't get jumped from behind, disarmed, and beat-up,(which could have happened since he didn't identify himself as a police officer when he decided to pull out his weapon on a man that was just protecting his wife from an angry psycho in a grocery store check-out line). Then just maybe he would have had some respect the next time he speaks to another man's pregnant wife.

Let's see if the Kendall County States Attorney has the balls to charge this "Officer of the Peace", and put an end to his career in "Law Enforcement"...

Fred, I don't see why Oswego taxpayers will be paying anything. Other than making a lawful arrest of someone that committed a battery Oswego Police just did their job.

Oswego-ann! You have obviously had some positive contacts with police, which is the only way to explain your stupid comments. You sound about as intelligent as Pat Stiles. It sounds like the deputy may have started this by shooting off his mouth, but last time I checked there was that right we all have called freedom of speech. But someone had to take it to another level and put their hands on someone. And that person went to jail. Why don't you research which law this deputy broke and tell the State's Attorney how to do his job, since you are soooo smart.

Can anyone guess who the cop is on this discussion?
Not to obvious.

A real,well trained police officer, would not threaten use of deadly force in a crowded Wal Mart simply beacause he was shoved by someone.

This officer has to have a real anger management problem to go off with threat of deadly force because he had to wait to long in line.

No reasonable person could justify this.

pulling your gun out because you are a coward bisch piece of chit isn't an excuse especially when not one single pig on that force has ever shot anyone ever in their lives.

Nun-ya: You wouldn't happen to be the idiot that pulled the gun out, would you? Let me tell you this- if this had happened in a state where the CITIZENS can legally carry (like me), it would have turned out differently. I most likely would have had to shoot this idiot because I can almost guarantee that when I pulled my gun and ordered him to drop his, rather than identifying himself as a cop (which at that point, too bad...drop the gun or I drop you), he would have done something MORE STUPID and forced me to kill him. The right to carry ENSURES that the people can be safe from idiots like this. Are you one of them?

Unfortunately, we are the only State in the Union that doesn't allow it's citizens to carry a weapon, thanks to the politicians from Crook County and the Socialist Republic of Chicago.

Yeah, I know all too well. When traveling across country, I have to lock my weapon in the lockbox (in the trunk) and the magazine gets locked in the glovebox while traveling through the Socialist Republic of Illinois. I feel sorry for the citizens of IL, you have a 2nd Amendment right that is being stripped from you by the state. As I said, if this had happened in CO (like, at the Wal Mart down the street from me), and I had been there, it would not have ended well for this "so called" cop. Judging by the arrogance I see he demonstrated, I am most certain that I would have had to shoot him- since he failed to identify himself BEFORE pulling the gun or immediately thereafter, once I drew down on him, his badge wouldn't mean anything to me. I would have told him to drop the gun NOW and I can bet that he would not have complied. After that, I can also bet he would have done something an arrogant person like that would do- try to point the gun at me....and his obituary would point out what a stupid mistake that was.

You guys need to lobby for your right to carry- OPEN and CONCEALED.

Yeah, if our State's not careful, it's citizens might just rise up, revolt, and take control.

That's not the purpose of the 2nd Amendment; if anything, this a$$hole "law enforcement officer" truly showed why the founding fathers gave us the 2nd. Without it, the citizens are at the complete mercy of the state- with no possibility of resistance, they could do as they please.

Thomas Jefferson said it best:

“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”(Quoting Cesare Beccaria)

"The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it."

Unfortunately the guy that pulled the gun without identifying himself is not the guy charged and going to court.
Which person showed the least amount of intelligence?
Which person should have had the most training?

This is bad for anyone who happens to be in the same or similar circumstances.
