    Sorta like Super Troopers, except in that movie the cops never pulled guns on each other. This is pretty serious. I'm thinking they'll be ousting both and going for option C.

    Actually I'll bet it was quite safe. They are obviously of the "Barnie Fife" police force, aren't they? :banghead:

    You remember, only issued one bullet and they don't get to load it until they need it. :D

    I can totally understand why anti-gunners don't want firearms in our hands now. Afterall, the police are the only people professional enough to have weapons. When citizens start carrying guns, they're going to be shootings everyday for road rage, minor arguments, and blood will be over flowing on the streets.

    A lot of the small municipalities in St Louis County have really screwed up governments and police forces, especially north county. Wellston is one of the places that I avoid like the plague. By no means am I bashing police, it's just that there seems to be a lot of problems there.

    guns inside city hall--- ohhh my gosh. but the police can have them; after all: they are the only ones who can be trusted.
    can someone who is knowledgeable list the charges and consequences of two adults in a 'public area were to be arguing with guns drawn' would face?
    and the charges against these two fine officers?? reassuring to know that some are more equal than others.
    that aside; i am wondering about the the mayor who gets between 2 gun wielding men in the heat of disagreement.

    this just in.....the mayors injuries are now being called accidental. seems he was wearing his aluminum invisibility cap when 2 offices, having an animated discussion, gesticulated through the space the mayor was occupying. all parties to the misfortunate incident are relieved that he will be ok now. especially as he was not before the event.

    Whew! I was getting worried. It had been about 24 whole hours since you posted that exact same quote, and nothing else, in a thread.:rolleyes:

    As for the cops, I suspect at MOST one or both gets fired, but likely not even that. Just a letter of reprimand for both. Seems fair, as thats what would happen to any of us if we pulled guns during an argument at the mayor's office.:cuss:

    Oh well. At least it's another "gun crime", "blood in the streets" stat for the Brady's, hey'll just leave out the fact it was the police cheif and assistant chief.:banghead:

    My guess is this kind of thing happens a lot more than you ever hear about.

    Cops are human, even police chiefs, and they get mad and have personal squabbles. Many minor power minds like this have very large egos and not such big brains. getting demoted is not likely to make one real pleasant, especially if you have gotten used to whatever perks there are.

    I don't think we can assume that he got into the path of the potential gun fire.

    A guys' been named the city's new police chief, had the job 4 days and they won't announce publicly who the guy is???

    Nor will they name the former chief?

    What've they got there, secret policemen?

    If this were just two non-LEOs, would this thread have the same amount of jokes and happy faces?

    What's on topic here? The fact that guns were involved? How many times do we have to remind the membership that THR is not the daily birdcage liner. Just because a story contains firearms, doesn't make it on topic.
