    Partial story
    Reno police killed a man Friday afternoon following a confrontation on the sidewalk near the Ross Manor Hotel at the corner of West and First streets, where the man had earlier fired shots from a handgun, said Lt. Jon Catalano.

    And people wonder why I wear a vest to work Religiously. Also hmm wonder why I don't often leave home without my gun.
    At the time of this incident I was at the park across the street. I wasnt wearing my vest as I wasn't working. But I did have my Glock.

    It's probably a lie to cover RPD's continous abuse of power.

    You know what he was shooting at people. Ok so he was shooting in an upwards direction. Many of those buildings are you know 15 floors and such he could have easily killed someone. All I have to say is good riddance to the maggot. Oxygen thief

    I've seen them abuse their power before. When I was a bouncer at Metropolis we had someone in cuffs and turned them over to RPD, next thing you know he was on the ground being hit with a tazer. The guy wasn't resisting and was perfectly calm, RPD are pigs and give cops a bad name.

    I have very little respect for the city's police force. Thats why I carry my Glock. I mean they wont even come out to your house any more for a burglary. But they will for businesses. you have to do the protecting of yourself in this town. I do respect what they are supposed to do for the most part though.

    While carrying and I didnt go in cuffs he kept my gun checked my papers and let me go. And even if they did cuff me for the time being. There isnt shit they can say about me carrying. So theyd have to let me go. If i get stopped my hands go on the steering wheel and the first thing out of my mout is I am carrying my gun I have a permit and its in my fanny pack or its in a holster here or whatever they have never given me grief for it yet
