    This is an outrageous way to treat our veterans, and the gun grabbing thugs in various police departments are targetting veterans as risky potential criminals.

    Reminds me of this story, but people got killed here, not just thrown into jail and 'lost' for two weeks.

    What do you expect might happen when a Veteran calls a hotline and tells the operator that he has a gun and is thinking about doing harm to himself or his family? Don't go whining about Veteran status when you put people's lives in jeopardy.

    Dude, you might want to actually read the posts, or failing that, listen to the video.

    The guy was not armed and threatening to kill himself. He was having sleep problems because of the stuff he had seen in Iraq and was asking for counseling.

    He never threatened suicide.

    Yeah right, a Veteran calls a crisis hotline because he can't sleep. You can't blame the Police because the crisis hotline operator told them that the Veteran had a gun. It boils down to whether the Veteran told "Beth" he had a gun or not and the Washington Times seems more interested in creating a public outrage than obtaining a transcript of the call.

    I dont blame the cops for responding to an errant report.

    I DO blame them for 'losing' him for two weeks in the jail.

    I DO blame them for leaving the guys burners on his stove on for all that time, a definate fire hazard that could have burned down the whole damned block.

    I DO blame them for barging into his house without a warrant.

    I DO blame them for being unproffesional, gun-grabbing fuckheads who need to have their badges stripped off them because they are a disgrace to cops the world over.
