Rifle is legally correct.One of the reasons, I believe that there
has been an increase in the AMOUNT of officer involved shootings here in Utah,
is the increase in thug/parolee/gangsta-wanna-bees here in Utah. Too many
residents of Utah, have an extremely myopic view of "life in Utah" and
fail to see the very routine increase in lowlifes here. Because of the cultural
naivete, and false "belief" that all people here in Utah are
inherently "good", this state is a target-rich environment for thugs
and parolees. Good people are inherently "good", thugs and parolees
are not. Perhaps "one day" they may well "change" for the
better, until that time, we will continue (unfortunately) to see an increase in
the amount and frequency our law enforcement officers are having to use the
threat of deadly force on the idiots in our society. This slight uptick, isn't
really news at all, unless one has their head firmly implanted in the west
In response to the question from OKC UTE: Executions, by definition, are
"homicides as part of a legal process".Homicides generally
fall into one of two categories:They are either justified or unjustified.
Why is Ronnie Lee Gardner execution listed as a homicide? And thanks go out to
those who serve in blue.
Robbers, drug dealers, felons, etc.Every one of them took aggressive
action after being warned and asked to follow the direction of a law enforcement
officer.Here's my thanks to our Police Force and other emergency
service workers who put their lives on the line for us.
I find the headine of this article rather inapropriate. It displays Police
officers as killers instead of heros and a number of killings like a talley
board. I am certain this pleases many anti-cop people who hate all cops. I
know there is a great number of cops who dishonor their badge and our society.
But look at the heros we have. Police officers who serve and protect us. they do
it for the same reason why many people in the military do what they do.The
best cops are the ones who do their job. Use fireamrs against the bad guys. Not
the ones who pull you over for going 5 over the speed limit.I would not
call it a kill when a criminal gets shot. I would call it noble deed and better
for us.One less criminal to worry about.
And thank you to the officers who risked their lives to protect us. Especially
to the 160 officers that were killed in the line of duty last year.
execution rate should be higher ... and if others "get it" ... then it
was probably because they were threatening officers ...
