Madison Police: Are They All 00s7

Postby Mark Weiss » Sun Sep 01, 2013 2:00 pm

So did you hear the one about the three guys who came to a gun fight, one with a beer, one with a knife and one with a sword? Well they all acted kind’a crazy and maybe more than a little drunk so the cops shot them dead on the spot. Oh wait… that’s not a joke. It’s Madison police Department procedure.

That’s right children, they shot ‘em dead. Couldn’t use their mace. Couldn’t use their clubs or tasers. Couldn’t use their experience. Couldn’t call in k-9 units. Couldn’t shoot rubber bullets or bean bag rounds. Couldn’t call for 10 or 20 or 30 additional uniforms roaring up in their cruisers to massively intimidate the poor mooks and scare them into submission. Couldn’t use their non-lethal paramilitary training. Couldn’t secure the area and simply wait till everyone got bored, hungry, needed to pee or fell asleep. If I didn’t know better I’d have to conclude that these coppers are so poorly trained and / or incompetent, that the gun is their resolution, first, last and always. Shoot to kill, write it up, grab a few donuts on the way home, kiss the wife and kids and reload for tomorrow.

You're barking up the wrong tree, Mark. This board used to be Heimsness' playground (aka Walter). The members won't participate in any threads that remind them of their old friend.

When he gets his facts straight then we'll engage.

They did.

Why would they do that?

They don't carry been bag round guns on them. This is silly.

Do you have time to radio in to these folks when someone is charging at you with a weapon.

So no, this has nothing to do with another member of this board. It has to do with an ill written and ill informed post. But alas, I've engaged regardless.

Hey, I went out and tried to find an incident in Madison involving a 3 guys with a beer and sword and a knife and didn't find anything. You want a response to an real event, provide links to said event.

Even the title of this thread reeks of dumbness.

Just a rant with no link or source. Probably not worth responding to.

He might have been reacting to this article but I doubt it. Couper's too level headed.

I couldn't find it in the mobile page. Sorry.

I could be wrong, but I swear I remember reading somewhere that Madison has at most 23 officers on duty at any one time across the city.

Sounds about right, maybe a few more, but amazingly dumbasses commiting crimes generally don't wait for your backup to show up before becoming bigger dumbasses.
