    In the News: Friendly little snowball fight in Washington D.C. has a Detective draw out his gun...and getting in at least one persons face. Oh, and there were children around. This guy has been given a desk job and had his badge taken away until further investigation. Unbelievable. Sarcasm comes to mind at the fact that this guy wasn't fired immediately...I mean what is he going to say in his defense?

    I'm also wondering...if this guy ends up being dismissed...Is this going to be this guy's crowning acheivement...the day he decided to break up a Snowball fight? I mean...what on Earth was he thinking? Was this what he spent so many years becoming a Detective for ? Was he thinking: I am the defender of all who have been needlessly hit with a Snowball?

      I heard about this, what was he thinking.  He should not be a cop.  Apparently he lacks any common sense.

    Wow, maybe he just snapped!  There was a post office worker that went to work and started randomly shooting people, which lead to the term of going postal.

    I know they say, Don't take a knife to a gun fight. But what kind of drongo* takes a handgun to a snowball fight?

    Drongo was the name of an Australian racehorse that, so I'm told, lost every horse race it entered. So "Drongo" nowadays just means a LOSER.

    Some people should never be allowed to go near a gun, IMHO.
