  1. Rhodes, it's a good question and deserves a fair and honest answer so let me give it a shot. Bad cops are few and far between, but they do exist obviously and most "good" cops know who they are. Most "bad" cops just simply suck at what they so. They are lazy and really do not know the law very well and spend most of their day trying not to do anything at all. Good cops don't like them because they don't carry their load.


    Even more rare are the "bad" cops that are somewhat dangerous. They border line go too far on use of force situations and really don't know when to turn it off following an arrest of a resisting suspect or something like that. These are the most disliked because they get "good" cops in trouble and cause problems in the department. Good cops will stop them and pull then off a suspect when they are out of control. They may even get reported for excessive use of force or unprofessional conduct. These are the cops that everyone talks about "going postal" one day.


    The problem is the administration. It is VERY hard to get an officer who is out of training and off probation fired. We have had 2 cops in 20 years in my department who were borderline cops, and they eventually took something too far, hurt someone unnecessarily and got fired. But I work in an area where pay is very good, and being a police officer is very competitive. Meaning it is tough to get hired because so many people apply. The administration is so separated from what's going on in the street that they often don't realize their is a problem. Sometimes the problem comes to light much too late.


    In this SC case I read somewhere that this officer had some other issues involving physical violence or anger. I don't know if that is true, but if it is, that's a huge red flag. This is not the job to have with an anger problem. We usually see that during training and probation phase, and we wash out quite a few people during that time for that very reason.


    Sorry if I got long winded, but crap like this makes me angry because it really hurts our profession. 99 percent of cops are decent hard working people who just want to do their job, support their family and raise their kids. We are put in really crap situations and have to use sound judgement before applying any type of force. That obviously did not happen in this case and the office made a very poor decision to use deadly force in a non deadly force encounter.

    ^^^ gotta give this more than a like. I love where your coming from, but there are times corruption breeds deeper than that.


    Its happened practically in my backyard. The FBI had to intervene.(and possibly the only reason they did was a former mayor being investigated)  http://masscops.com/threads/fbi-raids-houses-of-oswego-police-chief.7897/

  2. Bad cops and bad deeds of cops only get addressed in a court of law

    Always follow the orders given by police, right or wrong, take the officer to task in court if he or she is out of bounds.


    And contrary to what people want you to think......No Person hates bad cops more than good cops do.


    Not sure that's the case, there are some people who are more than willing to do something about cops in general, good or bad. That far succeeds your statment.


    Further carried, Police treat laws as gospel until tried in court, and if you think our judicial system isn't flawed at this point your not paying attention. I've had this argument with more than a few in a state where laws have changed and I call some of them friend or family. Not all see my point of the multitude of laws and them being unable to enforce all and picking and choosing their battles, despite my having better knowledge of gun laws than them.


    As per the original video, Its not looking good for the cops involved.

  3. Whats the closest to scratch built you guys have done? The idea of making something out of more raw material seems appealing to me.


    This guys videos have become addicting to me lately due to the simple tool and skillset required. Hell Most of what he uses I either have or have something better.



    Love to hear from the peanut crowd on this one, so chime in!

  4. On the cheap I'll drink Old Vienna, and Yuengling. I'll enjoy heiniken, Amstel, Molson, Dos equis, modello negro, guiness, smithwicks, sam adams... The list could go on for common beers.


    getting into Micros I love Stone Brewings Double Bastard. It was the beer that made me think of beer differently. More recently I've had Founders all day IPA, and Saranac Caramel Porter. Both good breweries with quality products.


    More esoteric would be Two Goats, Middle Ages, Empire, and Roosterfish. If you like imperial stouts you need to seek out a pint of Middle ages dragonslayer.



    Every gun on this forum shoots sub-MOA. It's just everyone has the JPEG of their targets at their dads house with their 80k round Saiga............




    The biggest hurdle is often the ammo. I've gotten 2 1/4" @100yards standing supported with golden tiger. Someone with hand loads could easily do better, but 1 MOA? no I don't fashion my gun out to be that, not saying its not possible to reach sub MOA, but you might be getting those results sub 100 yards...
