USA –  -(Ammoland.com)- Somewhere, everyday in the USA, 2100+ people use a gun for self defense, to stop a crime or save the lives of themselves or their family.

“We believe that the American public deserve to understand that on the average, guns save 2,191 lives and are used to thwart crimes every day,” says Alan Gottlieb of the Second Amendment Foundation

Most times you won't see these tales on the news as it does not fit the main stream media's story line of “Guns and Gun Owners are Bad“.

This is just one of those stories;

Officer And Suspect Draw On Each Other In Close Firefight

    Pulling a gun on a cop is certainly a poor choice unless you are looking for suicide by cop. Poor choices bring poor results.

    This should be a police training video of bad judgement and what not to do. First Mistake: In the restroom the guy should have been cuffed and searched. Second Really Big Mistake: They should have never walked him through a public area with lots of innocent patrons; Can you imagine what would happen if the shootout had happened in the restaurant? Would you guys think the cops did a great job if your child had been shot in an altercation? Third Mistake: The guy had his gun out pointed at both officers and had time to run sever yards before… Read more »

    I never had a female partner and never would ! Office work/dispatch duty only for female cops.
    ! On the streets things can go south quick and a female cop will do what this one here done every time,scream and run ! A female officer will cost male officer lives on the street !

    One can easily argue apprehending the suspect in the bathroom could have been equally dangerous with bullets flying thru the sheet rock walls.

    Good thing there weren’t a string of cars going by downrange of this guy. What, twelve, thirteen rounds fired by the cop? Wonder how many of those rounds actually hit the perp? Why didn’t they check for weapons in the men’s room?

    This went from a simple detain and question to a shots fired situation very quickly. The male officer involved was very professional in dealing with the suspect. He also made every attempt to keep the incident as low key as possible by moving the suspect outside the restaurant and not involving any other citizens. The suspects initial demeanor and appearance did not indicate aggression, thus the officer did not escalate the encounter inside the restaurant but moved it outside away from bystanders.

    It really amazes me how all these chest-thumping tough guys on this site love to get their testosterone fix by the osmosis of high-5ing a cop for killing the suspect. You know what is obvious to most unbiased observers is how brainwashed some of you are. You are like a bunch of trained seals clapping at the TV when the bad guy takes the lead. So pathetic, and I’ll bet many of you who do this claim you are Christians, as well. You appear to be Pharisees more than anything else.

    This video should be used in all training classes and as a refresher.

    They should have ‘detained’ him and searched him for weapons.

    Agree the female officer should have pulled her service weapon.

    Male officer had his hand on the guy back/neck before he bolted,
    good job drawing his weapon and takes out the lowlife.

    Hey now. If they had taken the gun off of him in the bathroom, or anywhere else prior to making an arrest of a ‘law abiding’ gun lover, the NRA and gun nuts would have had a royal sh*t hemorrhage.

    I just loved how the “” FEMALE COP”” JUST SCREAMED & RAN!!!!, IT TOOK THE MALE COP TO KEEP HIS HEAD, DRAW, & FIRE, WHERE WAS SHE AT??? IF SHE WAS MY PARTNER!! ,I’D ASK FOR A TRANSFER!!!!!! SHE SURE DIDN’T HAVE HIS BACK!!!!!!! I NEVER WAS A COP, BUT A V.N.VET.
    IN MY OPINION (and it’s only mine) IT WAS A BIT EXCESSIVE!!!!! & I’M NOT A X-CON. OR SIT ON MY AS# WATCHING TV ALL DAY EITHER, JUST A BLUE COLLAR LIKE MOST OF US ARE.

    As for where this video came from it was the officers body cams, body cameras work great and give a superb picture/video. The location for those never having eaten at one is an Applebee’s Restaurant. The interiors are setup the same across the country. Being the man was escorted outside for questioning and not under arrest, a pat down was only needed for officer and public protection if the officers involved felt a need or that the suspect was known to be armed. In this shooting the number of round fired is irrelevant and as taught officers shoot until the… Read more »

    Where did this take place at. This looks like a mock film. I would also like to know where the fantastic clear camera and great camera shots came from. Dont always believe what you see.

    This guy was not handcuffed and searched at the beginning because he was not told he was under arrest; only that he was a suspect. Assuming that he died as a result of the shooting, he brought it upon himself. These cops did exactly what they, and all the rest of us, have a right and a responsibility to do; they put up their own defense and protected themselves. The number of shots fired is irrelevant. Who counts shots in a situation like this? The guy knew they were cops, he knew they had guns and he knew they would… Read more »

    The guy got what he deserved, however at least the last three shots were not fired out of a need to eliminate the threat. They were fired out of pure adrenalin. Hard to control the adrenalin in such circumstances, but this is something they should be better trained for. Also, he should have been cuffed in the bathroom to prevent anything from happening in the dining room.

    Yes, thing could have been done different, but that always applies. This was a clean and good shooting. I have been getting real tired of the bad ones, IE he may have had a gun, he went for his pocket, well maybe. This is the only kind of Police work I want to see. Yes it is a dangerous job, and if you don’t have restraint, don’t be a Cop. Or, make sure your being taught restraint. Only complaint is what ever happened to the double or triple tap they did not show any restraint with the number of rounds… Read more »

    Fine shooting by the officers. I agree in the bathroom they should had taken the weapon off of him before going outside. Really fine shooting !

    Actually they should have patted him down while in the confines of the restroom and not risk taking him through the restaurant. Had he pulled his gun there I guarantee you the police missed shots (and there were some) along with collateral fire from the moron perp would have ruined a bunch of lives. These two cops should be talked to strongly by their commander.

    Well Mike and Mikrat, did either of you notice that the guy started to run away, then turned to face the officers while pointing his gun at them? I guess you two have never had to fight for your lives. I do agree with Tim who noted that the guy should have been cuffed and searched in the bathroom. But I bet the outcome would have been the same. That pocket pistol came out in a flash, didn’t it?

    And, you’re ignorant, Mike7.62, and a victim of the affects of living a soft life on a couch, and living in you’re fantasy world inside your big screen TV, while surfing the web on your smart phone, all at the same time. It also seems to me that you don’t like cops and/or the law, period. Maybe, just MAYBE, this douche-bag could have gotten off one more round that COULD have killed an officer or a nearby civilian, as he kept moving and turning. And, since we human beings and not super computers, we can’t do millions of calculations per… Read more »

    Exactly. Those that constantly stand behind every cop shooting are the chest-pounders that think if they support the tyrant then they will be invincible when things go tits up. Like you said – Just wait till one of your family gets put down like a rapid dog by one (or more) of the pigs for simply being a bit lippy or not “Complying” fast enough.

    And whats funny is the Pigs think they are also invincible and that their Bosses / controllers will protect them when the time comes – guess what, your all expendable chattel.

    Looking at this video. I’m glad the bad guy was taken off the street. But don’t you think that there being two police officers at the scene. Should they have checked him for a weapon and handcuffed before taking him out of this establishment This whole thing looked very fake and unprofessional

    I’d have to say the perp brought about his own demise pulling a gun on the cops. Yeah there are bad shootings by cops, but this isn’t one of them. Another criminal bites the dust.

    White on white shooting, won’t see this on the news, no riots, no Jesse, Al or Mr. President. A justified shooting and two very sharp LE officers, just like most police shootings regardless of race of the suspect. You defy, you die. Good rule when you are dealing with law enforcement.

    It really makes me sick the way some guys on this blog celebrate when a paid government tyrant snuffs out some dude. Yeah the A-hole was in the wrong for drawing on the cop. Yeah I heard it all before. But he shot the guy to kill him, some using the euphemism “until the threat was eliminated.” — Well, all our lives are threats to these people when we offer any kind of resistance. Are you going to cheer when one of these pumped Punks decides to off your teenager for mouthing off to him? Or maybe it will be… Read more »

    This guy must have had something else going on besides a simple theft case.
    If he would have been convicted, maybe do a little time, and move on, but to
    try and draw on a couple of very observant officers, that was for sure the last
    mistake he will ever make. It does prove a point my ccl trainer said many
    years ago, that a gun fight is usually over in under five seconds. Now they
    can change the guys shirt to say stay bloody my friends.

    Nice touch to push the tableware away on the walk out. His awareness was awesome, as well as his shooting.
