    I disagree. In close combat it is almost ALWAYS better to charge than to retreat. Charging puts pressure on the person with the weapon. Retreating gives him time to take a deliberate shot.

    Man I'm pissed(i just read the breakdown of what apparently happened that night)...We all know damn well if he wasn't a massive black dude he wouldn't of been fired on!!! I truly believe that, I usually don't support football stars who get in trouble with the law, but it sounds to me like extremely excessive force was used in this situation and it makes me so mad I'm steaming...F the po-lice!

    I do think that this could be the catalyst to a super-bowl run or a complete collapse, I'm praying not the latter!:unsure:

    um...actually I grew up in Poway and it is an extremely quiet city...so yeah this is a load!!! And on the record, if the cop was calling for backup for twenty minutes or whatever that lie was then he would of had it...PO-way is the cop mecca of the world and would have had 30 sherrifs trailing him!!! This screams rookie mistake:tdown: :tdown: :tdown: ! I hope he makes a quick recovery!

    That's exactly right...it's all about his appearance because a white dude 5'10" 170 gets out and I assure you lethal force is not used!

    Was that the old JD's bar? I'm not sure if it changed names.

    My Dad still lives there. Up on the hill near the college.

    Agreed...running means you'll get shot in the back...also, you're gonna die tired.

    IN war school we were taught to zig zag. Just don't stand still. I most usually zig zagged backwards thinking it would lessen my size for him to shoot at. My sargent always yelled at me. But without a weapon i'm trying my best not to get shot by who's shooting. Also hitting the ground is good but only if your far enough away. Gives the shooter less to shoot at. If your in a shootout and you have a weapon its recommened to hit the ground. less of you for the other shooter to aim at and you can steady your weapon on the ground. Helpful hints to those in a shootout tonight.

    When I first got into the airforce they wanted me to be a commando. After realizing I'd get shot at and would have to shoot at people I reallized it wasn't my calling. So I joined on the air force swim team and then transferred to being a fireman. Fireman got 3 days off and only had to work for 4 days. And no one was shooting at you. Didn't take a rocket scientist to tell me where my calling was. Plus we slept half the time we were on the job.

    I think I would do the same thing.

    It comes down to economics and how you like your body parts to be arranged - or re-arranged. :yes:

    They would not pay me enough to have some assshole to shoot at me and me shoot back - unless I were a pilot in some ET space craft like the movie Independence Day and the thing had shields. :tup:

    I need shields or they can go fuc themselves....and I need some photon/quantum torpedos as well. :icon_toast:

    It's a mindset that's not for everyone. Even the guys that do it get scared. Anyone who says they don't are lying or crazy. Overcoming being scared and still doing your job without pissing your pants and crying in a fetal position is the key ...

    I am not so sure it is the scared part. It is more what am I getting paid for this as a profession which could end with a bullet at anytime.....

    Mother fuggers would have to pay me enough to take care of my family if I got killed in action.

    It was the white star mine on the very outskirts of town, I haven't been there since I was 8 so I remember very little about it...the club was converted from a big gym by my Dad in the 80's, that's all I really know...it was on the site of the "old white star mine" i've been told.

    Okay. The one heading out towards 395 ???

    I think it was a day spa or something like that for chicks in the early to mid 80's?

    Chargers | Officer felt trapped when he shot Foley
    Thu, 7 Sep 2006 17:50:04 -0700

    The Associated Press reports Coronado police officer Aaron Mansker felt "trapped" in a suburban cul-de-sac without backup when he shot San Diego Chargers LB Steve Foley. Mansker decided to stop his pursuit of Foley when no one responded to his calls for help, but he found himself blocked in a dead-end street where Foley lives. Sheriff's deputies arrived around a minute after the shooting, according to San Diego Deputy District Attorney Jim Koerber. Koerber told the judge, "At this time, the officer was trapped."

    The kid panicked. I wish they'd just admit it.
