    AND NOW !
    -2006 plot to blowup airliners leaving London for US destinations. Who has been implicated:

    Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40

    HINT the answer to all questions is "D"

    Nope, I really don't see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you?

    So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people. They must conduct random searches of 80 year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents of the President's security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winning and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim males between the ages 17 and 40 alone because profiling is discriminatory and not nice.

    Let's send this to as many people as we can so that the Gloria Allreds and other dunder-headed attorneys along with Federal Justices that want to thwart common sense, feel doubly ashamed of themselves - if they have any such sense.

    As the writer of the award winning story "Forrest Gump" so aptly put it,

    "Stupid is as stupid does"

    You left out the bloody school attack in Russia. It could happen here - Their motives have never been greater - and the police are equally unprepared for it. Most cops still don't even carry rifles that can defeat body armor from a "safe" distance, especially not the SRO's which would be the only cops in a position to defend a school in the first few long minutes.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beslan_...hostage_crisis

    The Beslan school hostage crisis (also referred to as the Beslan school siege or Beslan Massacre) began when [32] armed Muslim terrorists took more than 1200 school children and adults hostage on September 1, 2004, at School Number One (SNO) in the Russian town of Beslan in North Ossetia.

    On the third day of the standoff, shooting broke out between the hostage-takers and Russian security forces. According to official data, 344 civilians were killed, 186 of them children, and hundreds more wounded.
    But my Chief seems to think I'm a nutcase or a terrorist myself because I brought this to his attention in trying to justify Patrol Rifles and Reservists, and described to him how few men they'd really need to pull it off - Whatever!!!

    The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."

    This is the sad truth of current politics.

    Charlie.......I think your Chief and mine are cut from the same mold. I talked to mine the other day about putting at least 2 rifles on each shift. Hell, we have a gun room full of surplus M16's. The response I got was:

    "We don't need to be solving our problems with high powered rifles."

    If things go the way they have here lately that will change. Just this weekend in an 18 hour period there was a triple shooting at one location; one died lastnight and the other two don't look to good and 5 more shot at another, not to mention a few stabbings and I don't know how many beatings and various types of ADWs.

    You left out the fact that uniformed members of the U.S. military are also singled out for additional screening at an even higher rate than 80 year old grandmothers. I suppose having a bunch of fanatic MUSLIM raghead terrorists shooting at you and leaving booby traps all over the place would really get our service men and women to want to join up with them upon their return home.

    the department was talking about get a 5 shot pump action remington rifle. don't want to be intimidating. then a lt. car got full of holes by an ar15. now we are going to an ar15. one per shift. don't do a lot of good if the officer to whom the rifle is assigned to is off, but it is a start.

    Yeah. My former SWAT Commander is now a Chief at another agency and those Remingtons were the ones the city council approved for that very same reason when he asked for rifles. HOWEVER....they will accept full sized 30 round AR mags and they ARE rifles. Like you said, its a start. Right now I wouldn't bitch if I was issued a lever action 30-30 or an SKS. May not be what I want, but its better than nothing yanno?

    My first department only allowed us to carry shotguns but with no slugs. This department was in the ghetto to boot. I carried an AK-47 on my own accord. If I ever had to use it having a job the next day was of little concern. They now have ARs or so I have been told. At my current department we have ARs with kickass optics.

    The PS-90 and CX4 STORMs are nice. Especially the STROM; you can be chambered in 9mm, .40 and .45 and utilize standard pistol mags as well as the super high cap 100 drums! Highly versitile and come factory with rails for those add ons.

    It's good to know they're starting to issue rifles, 10 years after the North Hollywood fiasco.

    Plano, Texas, police as you know, were defeated by three bank robbers with full-auto AK-47's last year, and Tyler Texas had its courthouse attacked by a guy in body armor and an AK-47 not long after that.

    In Plano, the police could not get close enough to use their pistols or shotguns - The police never fired a single shot, while the gunmen rampaged down city streets of Plano and Richardson firing hundreds of rounds, committed two carjackings along the way and disabled 5 police cars. SWAT never caught up to the action and the bank robbers got away. One of them jumped into the net later and probably squaled on the others.

    In Tyler, an armed citizen outside the courthouse fired point-blank into the shooter with absolutely no effect (I guess he missed the head shot). The gunman then shot the armed citizen, and then walked over to him and shot him in the head.

    The police finally chased him and his truck for a mile or two, and he finally got out and as he was reaching for his AK, a police car rushed in and shot him in the head at close range, putting themselves in extreme danger. If they had had AR-15's they could have made the shot from dozens of yards away, in relative safety.

    My department has finally issued some rifles. It took several years to get it approved. I don't have one, but that is OK. I made a felony stop of some supposed armed robbers and it was comforting to have one of the back up officers get out of his car with a rifle.

    We finally got our patrol rifles (AR15) last year. However, they have to be locked in the trunk of the car. A lot of good thta does when you need it in a hurry. Also, we are not allowed to use tactical slings. We have a sling that allows us to carry it over our shoulder only. Oh well, it's a start.

    Full time department has converted surplus M16s in each car, and part time has Ruger Mini-14s. Each M16 has 2-30 round mags, the Mini-14 has 2-20 round mags.

    As far as the original topic, I think it's about time that we get our heads out of our politically correct asses and start targeting those that fit the profile of a terrorist. If there was a sudden influx of 6'4" 275 pound Danish terrorists, I wouldn't have any problems with them checking me out everytime I travel. That seems to happen anyways!
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    I agree. I heard today on the Mike Gallagher show that someone gave a Muslim activist group a tour of some homeland security set ups.

    In my patrol car rack, or in the trunk, depending on the specific unit (older cars with older racks won't accept the optics, etc).

    I heard it again tonight. It was the Muslim groups CAIR, Council on American Islamic Relations, and they received a tour of the security set up at O'Hare Airport in June. Talk about a hen in the chicken coup!
