    I see the thread title changed again. Sounds like part of the issue is trust. Is it that a cop doesn't have to protect you or is it that they have a right to protect themselves and to self-preservation? I think most of us would expect them to act accordingly in an emergency and use the tools provided to them, but on the other hand they don't have to get themselves killed for you. Only job I can think of like that is bodyguard- you're pretty much saying I'm willing to take a bullet for you. Back on trust though, the solution (I guess) is finding a middle ground. There are tons of fucked up people out there who do fucked up shit every day but we don't let that affect us, or try not to. You drive every day yet there are horrible drunks on the road killing people every day. Stories of cars jumping the curb and maiming/killing people in NYC happen more frequently than people know, but if you live there you go out and walk, you probably even jaywalk against traffic. If a guy with a backpack bomb wants to walk into a crowd and blow himself up he's probably going to do it, and there's little you can do to stop that even if you were armed. I remember I talked to a writer pre 911 who was from somewhere where bombings occurred often enough and was asking how you live like that and shit and they were commenting on how Americans have been relatively sheltered to evil and violence, and also that you have to live, have to still move through life. There's nothing wrong with carrying or having your firearm nearby but at the same time there are times and places where that's less appropriate.

    Separate but related, there has been a trend in MMA to not interview fighters immediately after they had been knocked out. Kind of feel it's similar with the media interviewing people right after a trauma, doesn't sit right.

    Raven I have literally no idea why you started talking about a nightclub I was talking about the massacre from Monday. That's where cops waived their supreme court protected right to run away from the scene and instead piled on top of people to try and shield them from gunfire. As even if they had a rocket launcher on their hip they had no idea where the bullets were coming from.

    I got my info from live eye witness stuff on the news. I'm twelve hours in front so I'd just sat down to lunch when it popped off.

    How accurate that is is anybodies guess

    I've watched a shit ton of footage from Vegas and didn't see cops piling on anyone. The ones I saw were running like everyone else.
