You can all go to H__________ Cops respond day in and day out to deal with the scum of society. They are paid minimal wages for dealing with the constant crap. Are there a few bad cops? Yes. Of course. As there are bad doctors, teachers, politicians, you name it. But do you really blame cops for getting so jaded? Most are hard working normal average people who want to protect and serve. Most are the ones who respond when you or your loved one need help. Most take the job very seriously and work long and hard hours to protect all of us. Let's focus on the good and not always the few bad apples.

Multiple posts here indicate someone needs some serious anger management training. Or maybe move to another country where the police are a kinder, more sensitive influence in the community. Iran, Iraq, China, or maybe the former Soviet Union countries. You definitely get a fair shake from the cops in any of those locations.

Get a Clue They are way over paid to ride around in cars shooting at people. Police today are women , wimps and cowards. In 1979 police used there guns on average once in there career. Today they are so affraid they shoot all the time. They need to hire john wayne size people. Not little boys and girls or wimps. Then tasers and guns would not be needed. Then good people would not need guns to protect themselves from the police. Now only criminals have guns. The criminals operating criminal justice systems.
Watch channel 9 at 9pm today it's on cops that can handle it. You know with all the fear and stress.:cops out of control: 9 @ 9 today. This saturday we had Our small town day. You know car show,games for kids, food, beer tent ect.... This year a local biker group sort of took over a spot to part in the parking lot, put up the U.S. flag sat around and had a few beers. Just a good time. Till one Anoka county sheriff comes up all puffed up. I kid you not 150 lbs full gear. Well after 15 minutes of these guys givin it to him he spent the rest of the day next to the kiddy rides. I was in tears laughing at this kid cop. So I know what your saying some of these spinless people just don't get it.

Questions:
1. Why did the police not go in the home alone? If the ex-wife was in potential danger why was she walking in with the police officers?
2. Was the father being denied his parenting time? And had the father tried to get the police to help when the ex-wife was committing the felony by denying the parenting time (MN Statute 609.26) but the police were not enforcing the felony.
3. Had the father just walked away in the past after reporting the felonies so that the police's guard was down and they didn't expect any trouble.

To Jerry Person,
Hopefully next time you need "help" the cops take their sweet old time and you take a bullet to the head. You sir are a waste to our society.

STFU all you low life scums talking sh*t on here. Let's see you do it in front of a cops face. Cowards. Karma is a b*tch, and what goes around comes around. I pray to god one day that you are in need of the cops, some other low life chasing you down and you can't run because your pants are below your knees and get capped in the head.

Jerry Person and No spin zone:

You still haven't taken me up on my challenge apparently. Go up to a cop and tell him/her these things to their face! You won't, you spineless little worms. Write a letter to your police department and include your return address on it and tell them what you think of them.

You talk about wimps and cowards? You two (if you indeed are two different people) are the very definition of cowards. GO TELL THE COPS HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT THEM TO THEIR FACE, OR AT LEAST WRITE THEM A F------ LETTER WITH YOUR RETURN ADDRESS ON IT!!! IF YOU DON'T, YOU'RE A LITTLE COWARD!

Well, at least the cops are out there protecting people like No spin and Jerry so they can pursue their alternative lifestyles unfettered.

Something that has been bothering me.... Why didn't the police go in with their
"guns drawn?"

This guys history; not knowing "what" they are walking into? Why?

I am not trying to condemn anyone but wonder if this may have changed the outcome for an officer's life? Maybe in the future they will change protocol if not with this incident nothing will change that.

Obviously you didn't read the previous story - it actually had a copy of the 2 restraining orders she had out and also comments from a past relationship - this was one seriously unstable person - who truly needed help but wouldn't get it.
Thank you peace officers

I just want to say from the bottom of my heart that I am greatful to those that maintain the peace in our society. Far too often you get spit in the face, ripped apart for doing what is right. There are many days that go unsung for taking the scum off the street and taking personal assaults both physically and emotionally for it.
I say, Rock on! You do worthy work and if not hear the good Lord will reward you.
Bless you all!!!!!!!!!!

You know whats funny is the PP removed some of the posts. If you look at the numbering system they are not in consecutive order.

I was trying to follow the comments and they dont make sense.

Way to go PP when there are some tough comments you guys remove them.

In any case, I am glad Dockery is dead. He is not worth the effort it takes to type his name.

I dont even feel sorry for the wife. How many restraining orders. How many times did she put her kid through it.

He was just another black person who doesn't believe laws apply to them. Poor me poor me, look at whitey keeping the black folk down.

Cry me a river you thugs. If Obama can go to college and get elected President what the hell is wrong with the rest of the black race.

"If Obama can go to college and get elected President what the hell is wrong with the rest of the black race. "

If I remember correctly, Obama was raised (formative years)out side of the US.
Maybe the rumor of American Blacks being spoiled and lazy is true!?!

Sporty2,
You make my point. Something is really wrong with the story. Either he was dangerous or he wasn't. If he was why did the police bring the ex-wife and daughter in at the same time?
If not dangerous, then it maybe because the police knew that the ex-wife was using the police to accomplish her agenda.
Restraining orders are passed out like candy. They are easy to get and you need no proof. After all of these restraining orders have been filled and the police are not on their gaurd, then that tells me something else was going on.

I don't know! It is just really weird.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
