    You can't ask other officers that have no idea of the entire situation to add what they think about something. We are put in situations everyday that require us to act now not later.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    Since I'm not wearing a badge, my comment is - why head butt him when you could use the car?

    I think that if anyone'd been truly upset, they'd have given you negative rep that you'd be feeling for weeks. As it, it just looks like there isn't enough info with which to form a solid opinion on. Plus, you have to remember that news agencies always package things to be dramatic, and generally that means it's biased in some way. Not exactly something you can form an opinion on.

    We're not mad at all. We just don't want to jump to conclusions one way or another.

    Keep in mind, these kind of topics spark heated debates. No need to do that, when we don't have all the facts first.

    Back to the subject, anyone that head butts someone isn't using very good common sense to begin with. The last guy I saw head butt someone had 2 teeth stuck in his forehead and needed a few stitches to sew his head up!

    There must be more to this story... Somewhere between the time the homeless man walked in front of the cruiser and when the officer's head met up with the homeless guy's mouth, SOMETHING happened.

    The stupid reporter coulda clued us in on whether something in the police report actually filled that little gap.

    The man coulda been running at the officer as he got out of his car and got a busted lip trying to bite him on the head, for all we know.
