    It is truly a sad situation. I don't quite get though why you seem to go to the 'only one qualified BS claim' of that arrogant DEA agent who fired one off in the classroom. I don't see how this current idiot compares - attitude-wise (which is exactly how you just compared them) - to the arrogant POS DEA agent except maybe that you resent law enforcement officers in general and believe they all have the same attitude - that of the DEA agent. I assure - they don't.

    No different than Florida man. No one thinks every LEO professional is like that. Everyone expects them to not be dipshits with guns.

    A friend retired from the local PD when one partner discharged his pistol inside their squad car and another tripped a fell discharging the 12 ga. she was carrying. My friend was struck in the back by a couple of pellets. He called it a career.

    Dude, how many times am I going to have to use the following in your threads?!?

    I don't know where you're getting your propaganda that "only police and/or military are professional enough to have guns" bullshit.

    There have been plenty of ADs by non-police and/or military to keep any stones from being thrown.

    Plus, police and/or military are human (gasp!) just like you and I (well, at least like me!).

    I doubt you'll ever reach perfection, history has shown only one person to ever walk the earth did that and I seriously doubt it was you!

    No different than Florida man. No one thinks every LEO professional is like that. Everyone expects them to not be dipshits with guns.

    Yet for some reason everyone does!

    Just a few things to consider, these individuals are usually handling firearms far more than the average citizen.

    Plus, their training is centered on use-of-force which leads to expectations of in real world scenarios. It is a trend we see training cadets, the drills they go through seem to always involve use of force, therefore they become accustomed to going that route even though circumstances don't dictate it. That realization has driven a change in the training plan at least for the agency I support. Cadets and probationary officers have to learn (and expect) that non-lethal options should be considered first. Obviously, there are situations where that won't be the case; but when a training exercise involves unarmed civilians protesting going hands on or using nonlethal or even lethal (yes, we had one cadet go that route) instead of resolving the conflict peacefully should be the priority!

    But when it comes down to it, putting a uniform on doesn't give a person superhero capability! It is a symbol of authority and nothing more. What matters most is the human--and more importantly--their brain and how they use it. Proper training, especially that which doesn't lead to Pavlovian responses, is what sets the odds for the best possible outcome!

    No one, Leo or not, should point a gun at someone or themselves and pull the trigger unless they are intending to kill that which they are pointing a gun at.

    Anyone who dose so is a phucking idiot, an LEO and anyone with such training especially. You're gonna get made fun of at least and you should hope that's all the negative results from you're retarded gun handling adventure.

    Getting butthurt at those making fun of said misadventures because you happen to be in said profession or were in said profession is childish and thin skinned, especially when many times those making fun are also in said profession. It's akin to gallows humor and is both harmless and educational as it reinforces the whole don't be that guy who ignores training and safety thing.

    Instead, try some type internal inventory or reinforced training to not be the next retard who does something so stupid. We all have brain farts and lapses in concentration. Doing so with a gun can be disastrous.

    Don't do that. Don't get butthurt over it or atleast keep it too yourself. Whining about it will only get you more teasing.

    I truly believe that the usual suspects that publicly preach their buthurt on this topic do so for the ridicule they know they will receive because it temporarily relieves their ED.
