Three off-duty, OIS (Officer-Involved Shootings), fatal and near-fatal, in
NY, from a friend in the area:

“Three off-duty police officers, wearing plain clothes, fatally gunned-down
 knife, and bat-wielding attackers in three, separate cases last Tuesday.

Two officers fired their pistols at close range during separate car-jacking
 attempts.  “… car-jackers selected their victims most unwisely,” wryly
commented a police spokesman.   Suspects in both cases were DRT.

Later the same day, two suspects, armed with baseball bats, assaulted a
detective as he was vacuuming his personal vehicle at a local car wash.  In
the ensuing gunfire, one suspect, struck multiple times, was DRT.  The  other
fled, but was apprehended by responding officers a short time  later.”

Comment:  In all three cases, “victims” emerged victorious and  unharmed,
not because they happen to be LEOs, but because they were armed,  trained,
and eminently willing to defend their own lives with precision  gunfire.

Result: Three officers, none-the-worse for wear, three VCAs who will never
commit another violent crime (nor any kind of crime for that matter), and
one  VCA under arrest.

What’s not to like?

The only ones “disturbed” by this kind of happy outcome are liberal
politicians, who live for the creation of victims who will “need’  them!

The lesson here for the rest of us is: Always be  armed, because you can’t
know when the Test will come.  The chronically  unprepared have no right to
complain about perpetual “victim” status.

Once more: When it’s least expected, you’re elected!

John Farnam
