Lol at stopping war. Iraq drawdown was announced in 2006.

Have you guys seen the video of four Swedish police helping a subway operator in NYC?

 

I saw a video of four Swedish guys dressed as police officers running a train on a girl. Is it the same one, you think?

The study I linked was from cases studied in United States.

 

What's the scope of the study? I can't see the full text. I thought it was the study of the one county in NJ you mentioned, so if that's not the case, I misunderstood.

You mean besides help navigate out of the waters of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, get 13 million people insured for first time including millions who did not have previous access due to preexisting conditions, reduce the deficit significantly, ramp down two costly wars, create 12 million new jobs, and kill Osama Bin Laden?

 

Pfft, okay, that almost...almost makes up for him being black.

Except, there is evidence that it is effective and not any more dangerous a threat to a bystander than firing rounds at a suspect and only hitting a few times.  Also there is evidence that it is effective at saving both the police officer and suspect's life.  Your only evidence was what you have been told by others and trained what is right or wrong

 

I know it would be a little bit controversial, but wasn't without thought.

 

I am not a disobedient puppy I am just a curious cat  :) .  Of course curiosity killed the cat soooo..... what are we talking about again?

 

Evidence showed that it worked in one county in NJ, and... Afghanistan. :mellow: 

 

 

 

I'd want to see statistics from many communities with varying degrees of population densities and demographics before figuratively signing my name on a hypothetical Huddle proposition with no affect on the real world. I have my scruples.

 

I just can't imaging that warning shots would be a good idea in crowded cityscapes like Manhattan, or wide open tourist traps like DC, where an errant shot could whiz a couple hundred yards past the perp and hit someone in the crowd on the national mall.

 

Sure there's a chance it could happen now, but not sure I would want to make an intentional missed shot SOP.
