Egregious Misuse of Pistol by Off Duty from Buena Park | Active Self Protection

This Buena Park man was just minding his own business, acting lawfully, when an off duty from Buena Park THOUGHT he was breaking the law and greatly abused his authority and misused his pistol. There is a TON to learn here from many, many angles so let’s get those lessons out of this badly handled (by the officer) incident.

I am very pro-LE. I think LEO are some of the best people in our communities and they do a difficult job for little respect and relatively low pay. That said, I am not pro-bad-cop and not pro-abuse, and very much for keeping check on authority.

Let me be clear: I am very pro-LE. I think LEO are some of the best people in our communities and they do a difficult job for little respect and relatively low pay. That said, I am not pro-bad-cop and not pro-abuse, and very much for keeping check on authority.

Our community guidelines WILL be enforced in the comments. http://get-asp.com/communityguidelines and in particular, read and abide by #10:

In this vein, ASP believes that the vast majority of law enforcement officers (LEO) are good, hard working, honest people who do a job that really stinks for fairly low pay. Not only that, but as the community has grown it’s become apparent that their job is often done on behalf of people who are rude, disrespectful, and question every nuance of every word they say. As veterans we remember this same standard applied to the military and disagree with it on the grounds that they can’t possibly be perfect. We believe that they are generally good folk, generally looking out for average Joes and Janes, and require that conversations be respectful of their position of authority (Romans 13:1-7) and the job they do that you probably couldn’t. We really believe that every citizen should do 3 ride alongs with a cop before commenting on the job they do. We do not mind disagreement with a particular action of an LEO, and bad cops make us very angry. We won’t defend the actions of abusive cops any more than we defend the actions of any other abuser. That said, we will maintain respect for the office and function of LEO and ask that our fans do as well.

To wit, using the slur "pig" is unacceptable in this space and will prevent you from further commentary.

Call out this officer's actions. I did. Be mad. That's fine. Be critical of his actions. No problem. In all of that, be mindful of the boundaries we set.

The vast majority of us are doing just that and I am grateful for it!

TheWindAnRain says:

He would have been justified in killing that cop if he had a chance to draw.

Weston Bey says:

Key point….no perceived deadly threat…no reason for a gun. Muppet.

whywouldyousaythat says:

This infuriates me more than anything. He should not be a cop. Hes a fucking moron. Why was the cashier giving him change? This cop is a moron. I would have filed assault charges on him. Piece of shit.

joe bama says:

fire his stupid ass

KieranFR says:

The cashier is a fucking absolute idiot.

Outlye says:

To be fair, it did look like he stole the mentos but this was undoubtedly unjustified.

freiermann7 says:

In the cops defense, that area is a shithole.
