    Do you think this officer should no longer be a cop?

    Christian Dorscht and the unnamed LAPD officer involved in a struggle in Anaheim. The officer fired a shot after pulling a gun on Christian, 13, and other high schoolers during a dispute over them walking on his lawn, police say.


    I'm assuming the kid did say something nasty to the guy, but this guy should NOT be a police officer.

    Get a freaking fence dude - what a jerk

    "For several months, the officer has been dealing with local teens walking across his lawn, Wyatt said. "Yesterday, he sees the kids walking on the lawn and he says, `Hey, guys, please walk on the sidewalk,' " Wyatt said.

    Lying cop - He did not say "please' if he was so fed up with months  of lawn walking.

    That prompted a chorus of epithets from some of the juveniles, Wyatt said." - http://www.cbs8.com/story/34580690/lapd … in-anaheim

      There is just a little more to the story than this, but then isn't there always?

      "The officer was apparently trying to detain one of the teens and cuff him when the group became violent. One person punched the officer and another pushed him over some tall bushes."

      "The officer seemingly made the decision to draw his firearm when the teen pictured here jumped over the bushes, squared up to the officer, and then quickly reached his hand behind his back near his waistband."


      Perhaps the full story should be received before hanging a cop out to dry for defending himself or his property from a gang of hoodlums physically assaulting him.  (See how easy it is to spin the tale into something that may or may not be true?  It's at least as easy as declaring the cop lied without having any evidence at all of that)

      Gotta be irritating to have such a small lawn, with a hedge to make it ridiculous for anyone to stray onto it and still have that problem but I think that cop should consider a career change. Pulling a gun out for such would put any of the rest of us in jail.

        Why was the gun pulled?  Because a kid is walking on the lawn?  Because a bunch of them are?  Because they're belligerent?  Because he's been assaulted by one or more?  Because one threatens him, reaching for what could be a weapon? 

        Before we decide that pulling a gun was inappropriate in the circumstances, we'd better know what the circumstances were.

          Fair enough.
