    Thanks for posting. Hopefully this won't be the last we hear of this story. I'm curious to see the outcome.

    I didn't watch the videos but good thing the cops had recorders on or it would have been a whole different story.

    This is why I just like to avoid police in general.

    Yeah, anyone else notice the original posted date on that article?

    Edit: And the article linked in post #5 states the incident happened in 2008.

    If the media hasn't picked up on this story by now, it's not likely to happen even on a slow news day.

    Status quo for most PD across the country IMO. Those guys looked like the Three Stooges coming up to the gate and climbing over it. The homeowner is lucky he didn't loose his dog too. The one fat cop put a bead on it.

    It surprises me that a lot more cops don't get killed in the line of duty.

    "Murphy was a career deputy with a law degree" ***? You have got to be kidding me. Did this guy get his law degree at McDonalds?

    The cops were clearly more dangerous than the property owner when they climbed over the gate with their weapons loaded. Talk about a bunch of morons.

    I was thinking the same thing, and apparently that hadn't taken hunters safety education which tells you how to cross a fence safely

    As already stated folks, this is an article from 2010 about an incident that happened in 2008 . Whatever is going to happen with this has already happened.

    Interesting. Did I hear that right 2 acres? I think most states require at least 5x that much in order to discharge a firearm.

    Interesting read despite being old.

    Intercooler- where in the world did you come up that tidbit about how many acres it takes to shoot? :rolleyes:

    Interesting. May the victim of trumped-up charges, theft, and rights violation win his court case.

    JohnM- I'm not a lawyer or know the ins and outs but remember hearing people saying something about it :scrutiny:

    http://www.thehighroad.org/archive/index.php/t-470607.html

    I do however have some common sense and 2 acres doesn't mean blast away with your high power rifle ;)

    He probably is in a jurisdiction where it isn't legal by one means or the other.

    It would all depend on where you live.
    If you're in some jurisdiction that loves to write up an ordinance about everything under the Sun there's no doubt going to be a restriction on everything you want to do.

    I watched the videos, he was shooting a 22 rilfe at a target that was backed up but a VERY large tree and it appeared to me from the video, the ground just beyond the tree went up hill and out of camera view. The deputies also mentioned something to the effect that there were no houses in line beyond the target.

    Yes, it is old, but is was a good read and enjoyed watching the videos. Although I wouldn't call the actions of the videoed deputies enjoyable.

    Could you show me a law that requires a certain size of land to discharge a firearm? I could be wrong but I have never heard of such a law.

    I can research it but then again up there I said I am not a lawyer. Did you view that link?

    2 acres and I heard the Cop say he could see cars traveling at the back of the property. Is it not true you have to have certain acres to hunt? Hunters?

    UNBELIEVABLE! :banghead:

    And this backs up my feeling that only a combination safe will contain my firearms! Electronic or Dial....but the way in is in my head! Cant strip that from me!

    And I can not believe they kept his firearms....:cuss:
