This is what CAN happen. . .even on Sunday during the daylight when you think the bad guys are all strung out.
My very best friend is a sworn officer and I love him like a brother.
I hope to NEVER see another incident that takes the lives of officers just because they got lax for a moment.
The restaurant is very open and there are two entrances. I have seen police there often but only in ones and twos.
I have never seen so many in one place at one time and that is what prompted the original post.
Those officers could have been far more aware than what I saw. I hope so.
I do remember in the last 3 years or so seeing 5 officers at a Dunkin Donuts shop.
I go there every Friday to pick up a dozen for the Range Officers at the range I frequent.
The LT. was killed a few weeks later when he was ambushed during a "normal" car stop.
Police work is dangerous enough without giving the wannabe bad dudes an opportunity to make a name for themselves.
