  1. Rookie…and of course you were on the scene and were fully breifed in an after action report to be able to make your laughable Ill-informed comment, right?

  2. It’s obvious #1 is not a cop, never will be a cop, does not understand how tense these situations are, and probably wouldn’t be man enough to be a cop anyway. He will just enjoy typing behind a computer and second guessing everyone.
