    You have to wonder if his grandma got run over by a reindeer.

    Well they got rid of dodge ball, my guess is this cop was trying to get rid of snowball fighting. You know the child that gets hit by a snowball, has his self-esteem lowered. We need to protect against that.

    Next on the agenda, getting rid of kickball. We can never let Little Tommy be picked last!

    Seriously though, it was a rogue cop that was mad he got hit by a snowball and pulled his gun to scare the little punks. He was on a power trip and actions should be taken. I don't think kicking him off the force fits this crime, but something.

    I'd feel like shootin' the pricks if they pelted me and my car with snowballs too!

    I'll wait for the rest of the story before commenting on this.

    In this day and age, pulling a gun on someone is rather frightening event. Especially for children.

    Getting your car pelted by snowballs would piss anyone off, but that doesn't give YOU the right to, in essences threaten, someone else's life with deadly force!

    That's how the Boston Massacre got started.

    Never bring a snowball to a gun fight. You don't have a sn...... chance in Hell of winning.

    A police officer pulling a gun in the middle of a rowdy crowd seems like a good precautionary move to me.

    The cop should have gotten out of the car and pelted the ballers with snow balls. He'd have gotten his anger out and had fun in the process.
