Poor police procedure?
This is not strictly firearms related but something I observed yesterday that seems to me to be a recipe for disaster.
I called in a take out order at a nearby restaurant at 11 am yesterday.
I drove down there to pick the order up and as I pulled into the parking lot, there was a line of police motorcycles backed into stalls. They were so close together, I wondered how the officers dismounted.
There were six motorcycles there.
I walk in to pick up my order and there are six uniformed officers and two civilians ( may have been officers ) sitting at one table taking lunch.
What I noticed is that four had their back to the outside and next to a window and four had their back to me.
They were avidly engaged in conversation and paid me no mind.
I am not a threat to the police. . .BUT there are people who ARE.
For you LEOs out there. . .would any of you ever put yourself in a situation like that?
I cannot imagine any department condoning such an action.
Wasn't it just in the last few years that several officers were shot because someone decided that a group of police officers close together at one time and not fully alert would be easy pickings?
Sure seems to me to be a breakdown of common sense.
