    I'm not quite sure how to interpret the rolling eyes. Care to elaborate your point?

    If there's going to be a piling-on in the cops let me hop in and say that the NYPD originally armed itself as a reaction to armed crooks.

    No reason to pile on cops. Most that I have known just try and do their jobs as best they can. As in any other deal though, we only hear about the 10% who aren't.

    The small round fired by the AR 15 is a good one for cops, it is not going to pass through to much and do damage when a shot misses the mark. Another option would be 9mm autos.

    But it is not going to help when every time some gang banger gets shot his relatives get to scream prejudice and sue. We need to declare a real war on Gangs and suspend their legal rights to clear them out. Cops know who they are, they just are tied down by to many laws. They are a menace to life, to commerce and to society. A short term removal of their rights, say a year, would work wonders.

    Arrest or kill as many of them as possible in a year and then return to business as usual.

    They do not deserve the legal system since they just abuse it. Have the Government Declare them a hostile force, declare war on them, make them insurgents, what ever legal term they want to use and then clean the cities up. When it is over remind everyone we can and will do it again if the problem happens again.

    My brother when he was a State Trooper carried a fully automatic rifle in the trunk of his car. Almost all of the officer's carried them. Don't ask me what it was as I don't know guns. It seemed to have a little bit smaller barrel then the standard rifles ive seen and the clip was curved like a bannana and it was all black with a handle on the top. Copssince the early 80 have carried high powered automatic assault rifles after the incident in Los ANgeles where the cops came under fire by a couple of people with automatic weapons and were only firing back the with standard side arms and shot guns. It was a bloody day for LA and the Police Department. I can look the article and post the link if you guys want.

    It was the LAPD actually. That's when police departments starting to allow officers to carry.
