CCW holders compared to police

Postby Nathan » Thu Feb 26, 2015 10:31 am

This is news to few, but these more recent statistics clearly show that police are far more likely to commit a gun related crime than the average concealed carry permit holder.

Mr Nathan

Do police commit crimes?? Oh you bet. Think of the constant 'Aggressive Behavior', move up the the prevalent use of drugs, and then the use of cops as stalkers, bouncers, data bank hacking. But, fellow cops don't report it, and consider it a 'Perk' of the job.

Hiring a cop for a 'sidejob' is where a lot of crimes happen. In Florida, at the height of the oxycodone pill mills, cops were often 'security'. At any rate this adulation about 'These shining centenarians' has to stop. Carry a pocket video cam, and see theme as thugs until proven different. This really applies to the CWC crowd

I guess my intent was understandably lost. I intended on focusing that CCW holders are "good", moreso than police are "bad".

And the stats only report the crimes committed by leos that actually get prosecuted, so that 10 to 1 ratio is likely much higher.

Mr Nathan

My concern lies with keeping CWCers safe. All I ever say is 'Keep your distance, because like a sleeping tiger the situation can go south very fast'

What a novel suggestion. :lol:

I've used that argument on business that had No GUNS signs on them and even convinced a couple of them to remove their stupid signs. My main point was that the people with CCW permits are historically much safer to be around then cops. They had a hard time getting their mind wrapped around it but John Lott sure tells it straight. When you think about it for us to get our permits we had to make it through school and our younger crazier years without getting caught doing the stupid things that 14-25 year olds typically do. Cops are exposed to violence for who knows how many years and I firmly believe it can rub off over time and of course the "thin blue line" is a problem when it comes to reporting those that are starting to cross the line. Then I suppose after they get away with a few they would probably tend to get worse over time until outright caught and arrested.

CCW on this forum should actually stand for "Crooked Cop Watch." That is about what it has turned into.
