  1. The following is an op-ed from Donald Mihalek, the Executive VP of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association Foundation. Recently in Oklahoma, a 2A antagonist — as I’ll refer to him — attempted to perform what he called a “Second Amendment audit” in a local public park. This alleged “audit” included standing in the park with what looked to most like an AR-platform rifle, a pistol permit taped to it and a GoPro camera. RELATED STORY WATCH: Cops Respond to Oklahoma Open Carrier With AR Pistol Of course the expected 9-1-1 calls came in. Officers who responded — in mass and with rifles in hand — were dispatched for a “man with an assault rifle” call in a public park. A park where parents and their children were spending a nice day trying to enjoy the park, until some guy with a “rifle” and the many police officers showed up. According to the man, he was educating the public and police about Oklahoma open carry and Second Amendment rights. However, in my opinion, it was ill-conceived and dangerous. The only thing he did was paint Second Amendment activists as “extreme” in nature. He endangered the public, the police and himself. In reality, he’s lucky to be alive! Legal Use of Force We should commend the officers for their restrained response. Due to the danger, it would have been nice to see an arrest for Recklessness, Disorderly Conduct or Being a Public Nuisance, but I digress. In this situation, as in others where an individual is holding a gun, officers would have been justified using deadly force. A “man with a gun” or “active shooter response” call triggers a response to the incident location where officers rapidly deploy. They then try to find and stop the threat. Due to the current active shooter threat and training most officers receive these days, things like verbal commands may not occur. When they respond to a call for a “man with a gun,” an “active shooter,” or “shots fired,” and find an individual with a gun, the next step may be deadly force. Thanks to the Supreme Court case Graham v Connor, a “reasonable officer” standard is used for use of force incidents and in deadly force situations. If the officer perceives a threat to himself or others, they can and would be legally justified using deadly force. Even in cases where an individual didn’t mean to pose a threat and may have otherwise been lawfully present and in possession of a firearm, a quick Internet search shows that in almost every case the officers are justified in using deadly force. How? Due to the “perceived threat” and rapidly evolving dynamic of a use of force situation. In almost all of these cases, the police got a call for “man with a gun” and responded. Officers arrived, saw a man with a gun — who is usually unsure of what to do since, in their mind, they are a good guy — and shot the man. Tragic in some cases, but all judged lawful. Unfortunate Nomenclature Since we are not in the 1800s anymore, most Americans barely know the difference between a pistol and rifle, but not much else. They definitely don’t know gun nomenclature, which is why most call AR-platform weapons an “assault” or “automatic” rifle. Most Americans certainly don’t know an AR pistol, which is what this “advocate” carried in the park. Add into this dynamic that AR-type weapons are used in many active shooter incidents. In the aftermath, the media splashes the AR image everywhere it can. The media frames the rifle as an “assault weapon that kills people,” then the broader public identifies that rifle as an “assault weapon that kills weapon.” So if someone is standing with what appears to be an AR-platform weapon, in almost every case they can expect the police to receive a call about a “man with an assault rifle.” The Response The impending 9-1-1 call for a “man with a gun” triggers an “active shooter” type response since every police department these days is hyper-sensitive to the active shooter threat. That call goes into the 9-1-1 dispatch center. It causes a cascade of events including: Multiple police units responding to the scene; maneuvering through traffic at a high rate of speed; notifications to the department’s command staff and potentially other agencies; an Incident Command System involves the fire department, while EMS and others may spin up; the community and media receive emergency alerts and inevitably converge on the scene. The community explodes with lights, sirens and Blue Warriors running around with guns, heavy ballistic vests and helmets. In the Oklahoma open carry case, a park evacuated with panicked civilians. A day ruined because some guy holding an “assault rifle” felt it was his responsibility to conduct an audit. The result? Lots of police also running in with “assault rifles” and he created a potentially deadly situation. Final Thoughts on the Oklahoma Open Carry Situation It’s a dangerous dynamic when responding officers confront an individual at gun point; this was the case in the Oklahoma open carry incident. Such a situation elevates adrenaline and the potential for a shooting is literally at the trigger point. The individual, like many others, missed this concept when recklessly conducting his “audit.” As the responding officers said in this incident, they support the Second Amendment. They are the “blue line” that protects that right. However, when an action causes concern and panic, and endangers the responding officers and broader public, you lose the argument and mute the conversation. No one in law enforcement would try to infringe on an individual’s Second Amendment rights. However, when those rights use no common sense, while recklessly and dangerously putting others at risk, the end result could be a hail of bullets in the individual’s center mass.

  2. A suspect lead police on a wild, dangerous chase that had his car weaving in and out of oncoming traffic at high rates of speed. The suspect barreled down the wrong lane, spun out and sped through numerous officer attempts to deploy stop sticks. Finally, the suspect pulled over and fled into the woods. That’s where the K-9 gets him. RELATED STORY Laguna Beach Residents Upset Over Patriotic, American Flag Police Cars “Bijan Johnson drove recklessly at high speeds on I-95 and through the Ormond Beach area as Air One monitored his location from overhead,” said a Volusia County Sheriff’s Office release. He eventually drove behind a business complex on Division Avenue and went into an area of heavy brush.” Dash cam and body cam footage shows the wild scene ensue, first as Air One provides remarkable footage of Johnson speeding across Florida. Then when he finally bails out, footage shows the K-9, Lasco, go to work. Officers and Lasco comb through dense vegetation before the dog finally gets the scent. Then a tremendous sound shrieks from the woods. Then the suspect screams and cries when Lasco takes a bite out of crime. “My hands are up bro, get him,” Johnson squeals, begging an officer to call of the dog. “Inside Johnson’s vehicle, deputies found a loaded Glock 9mm handgun, a quarter pound of methamphetamine, about $5,600 cash and small amounts of marijuana and drug paraphernalia,” said Volusia County Sheriff’s Office. Authorities treated Johnson for a bite from Lasco then eventually transported the suspect to the Volusia County Branch Jail. Johnson faces several warrants, plus new charges. His total bond is well over $1 million, according to Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.

  11. In this week’s sign the apocalypse is upon us, the Laguna Beach Police Department debuted new American flag-inspired paint jobs on its squad cars. And people freaked the freak out over it. Sigh, Kalifornia. RELATED STORY FIRST LOOK: The Lever-Action Henry American Eagle .22 Rifle In a shocking display of all things un-American, some local residents became very disturbed over what many found to be a striking, inspiring paint job. The offending part of the new look? American flag-inspired stars and stripes within the font of the word “POLICE.” “There was like a little panic going on, and I was like, ‘What’s happening?'” local resident Chris Prelitz said in a story reported by yahoo.com. “When one of [the cars is] there, it works. But all of a sudden, I saw, wow, when there are three, maybe four of them together, folks thought it was a SWAT team, federal agents. So it had a very striking, strong impact, so much so that I think there might be some unintended consequences.” Really? Then on Twitter, @ThePoliceStateX said “One more step towards a total police state. next step is to require everyone to salute as they drive past.” Another “local artist,” Carrie Woodburn, said it was “shocking to see the boldness of the design” and that it “felt very aggressive,” according to Yahoo.com. What in the name of Skillset is going on in Laguna Beach? California law required the city council to listen to this buffoonery, along with any positive remarks from the public, prior to voting whether to keep or shun the red, white & blue. However, fortunately cooler heads prevailed, and the council voted 4-1 to keep the American flag font on all squad cars. Those in attendance, apparently overwhelmingly in support of keeping the graphic, belted out the National Anthem following the vote. ‘Merica.

  14. Officers with the LAPD used a less-lethal solution recently to diffuse a tense situation in a local restaurant. Officers fired bean bag rounds to disarm a knife-wielding suspect, ending the standoff. RELATED STORY WATCH: Officers Chase, Kill Armed Carjacker in Wild Florida Shootout The incident began when officers responded to a call of an assault with a deadly weapon, according to an LAPD report. Once on scene, officers learned a woman stated she had been threatened by a man, later identified as 68-year-old Kenneth Sylvas. According to the woman, Sylvas threatened to cut her throat. Officers then tried for 10 minutes to coax Sylvas from the restaurant. However, the suspect refused to comply. Officer body cam footage shows the scene unfold, including when the suspect claims to have a gun. An LAPD officer immediately draws from the holster, before stating flatly, “Yeah, he’s got a knife.” Footage shows officers repeatedly attempt to get the suspect to comply with orders to stand down. “Hey, if you don’t drop that knife we might have to use less-lethal force, and its going to hurt,” one officers shouts out. But the suspect continues to shout obscenities and threats. While most police videos feature dramatic, chaotic scenes. This footage is remarkable in just how calm the officers remain throughout. They speak calmly and plainly to the suspect, give him multiple chances to comply, and then finally make a move to end the situation. Of note, with the officers’ positions, the suspect poses no immediate threat to others. LAPD Deploys Bean Bag Rounds Finally, officers deployed a 40mm less lethal device, firing bean bag munitions, striking the suspect. Footage shows the round strike the suspect, causing him to drop the knife. Officers immediately moved in and detained the suspect without further incident. Authorities transported Sylvas to a local hospital where he was admitted for an injury to his right hand, according to LAPD. No officers or other civilians suffered injury during the incident. Finally, the incident remains under investigation by local officials, according to LAPD.

Who we are

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect..... Respect for our past, respect for our future and respect for each other. In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
