Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- On Your Own!

An all-out, nationwide war on our police officers continues, as Democrat politicians grovel before BLM (black lives matter), and other strident anti-LE(police) groups.

Recent examples:

  • NYC … 2 Officers ambushed and murdered.
  • Dallas … 5 Officers ambushed and murdered.
  • Baton Rouge … 3 Officers ambushed and murdered.
  • Des Moines … 2 Officers ambushed and murdered.

Cops' survival during this “undeclared war” depend upon the depth of our own tactical training and expertise, preparation, equipment, and mutual coverage.

Life Saving Tips:

1) Don’t sit in stationary vehicles! Many murderers sneak-up on parked beat-cars and shoot unsuspecting officers inside before they can react. When in your vehicle, be in motion!

2) Carry rifles! Every beat-car needs to be equipped with a military rifle for each officer, and at least a dozen fully-charged magazines for each. Access must be easy and quick. This is particularly necessary for one-man patrol vehicles in rural areas that are dangerously isolated as part of their daily routine!

3) Drill continually with your deadly weapons! Regardless of training/qualification “requirements,” get out and shoot, under competent instruction, regularly. Spend some of your own money, but never be satisfied with “barely competent.

“Good enough” never is!

4) Carry a concealed back-up pistol. When in uniform, there needs to be one gun they see, and at least one other they don’t! The weapon they don’t see, and haven’t taken into account, may well be the one that saves your life!

5) Carry blades and practice getting them into action quickly. You may have to literally cut someone off of you!

6) “Normal” risk is part of the job. “Suicidal” risk isn’t! Approach cautiously. Limit your risk exposure. Use cover. Take your rifle. Keep your distance. Wait for back-up. Back-off when necessary!

7) Don’t be murdered by a “dead man!” When you have to shoot, inflict multiple, fatal wounds, quickly! Don’t relax/relent too soon! He may have the ability to absorb many more rounds than you think he possible could. As long as he is demonstrably dangerous, he hasn’t been shot enough!

Don’t approach “dead” suspects. We have K9s for that!

One final comment:

Yesterday a CA police officer was killed by a UD(unintetional discharge). The UD in question was the fault of a fellow officer from the same department who was in close proximity.

Few details have emerged thus far, but I think it is safe to say this. The main culprit here, as is so often the case, is:

UNNECESSARY GUN-HANDLING!

Officers involved were in a casual setting that surely did not require guns to be handled. As they were, the unthinkable happened. One officer dead. Another ruined!

We’re Operators, and deadly weapons are an integral part of our lives. We have many enemies! We don’t need to count brother officers, and ourselves, among them!

    Why does “ammoland” get so many “Trolls”? These are not people who would commonly read articles about firearms, hunting, pro 2nd Amendment, and pro LE. These are a species of low life that collects a bounty for inserting hateful and inflammatory remarks into polite discourse. Easiest way to beat them is to ignore them.

    It’s Undeclared War on People of Color, by brutish, trigger-happy mad dogs. Shooting unarmed people. Frequently IN THE BACK! Don’t you people read the papers or watch TV news, or listen to radio news? Other than FOX News & conservative talk radio? There are some Blood Thirsty Cowards carrying a badge & a gun. There ARE some good cops out there. But, for some reason, they are afraid of the thugs within their ranks. Racist thugs coming from the rolls of the neo-Nazis, the KKK & other White Supremacy groups. Are some of you too slow of mind to realize… Read more »

    This endless anthem of white cops vs black “victims” is nothing more than reduction to absurdity. It ignores the facts of each individual case, the fact that the actions of the so-called “victims” directly contributed to their deaths, and that in many cases the officer who shot the so-called “victim” is also black. Michael Brown wasn’t shot because he was black. He was shot because he robbed a convenience store and then assaulted the responding officer and grabbed at his pistol. This is based both on the evidence presented to the grand jury and the DOJ report after its own… Read more »

    You mentioned rural patrol vehicles in the article. In my rural area, the enemy is afraid to be anywhere near us. This is Apache country after all. And they know it! All in for taking it ALL back, and putting the criminals on trial. ” Time to clean house!

    Obviously, you have never known any law enforcement officers, have never ridden with one and have not the least CLUE about the Majority of them and WHY they take the job and serve.
    How Sad.

    True enough… but it seems likely that he HAS had some nasty encounters with ornery and vindictive LE with a big hardwood chip on each shoulder. The vast majority are as described in another response above. But in my relatively long life, there are five encounters that stand out, and taint my sense of ALL the others. One was well known locally, and had rightly gained the monniker Pig Simmons. The others were his understudies. Two of them are beat cops in Portland Oregon, one of the nastiest towns I’ve ever been in. The entire Bureau seems infected with what… Read more »

    Then why don’t YOU become a police officer and show us all how it SHOULD be done? Put up or shut up.

    The War is not on cops as this article states. The tone is clear, the war is cops against the general public. It is very obvious anywhere you go that is the case. I do not advocate the harm brought to cops as of lately but, with the everyone is guilty mentality, I have absolutely zero use and respect for anyone in that uniform. They are to uphold law and order they are not enforcers as they like to think and are allowed to act as. Statistics show that it is one of the safest jobs anybody can do. They… Read more »

    Be about it, don’t talk about it. I applied to be the difference so many are seeking. Your local PD would love to have more applications, I guarantee it. Also, take a citizen’s academy class – again here, your PD would love to see your interest – it will surely open your eyes to many things you would never consider. My class had two BLM members in it and at the end they were vocal about how surprised they were about how little awareness they had for the situations and obstacles officers face day in and day out – crusty… Read more »

    Without a doubt, you have never known or inter-acted with Law Enforcement Officers. I have several friends that wear that uniform and they are the most friendly and helpful folks I know. Their jobs are hard enough without running into some jerk that thinks he or she knows the law better than a Law Enforcement Officer. They absolutely do uphold the law and by doing so they are frowned upon by the likes of people like you.

    After spending 31 years on active military duty, then a stretch with USBP, I believe I’ve given enough of my life in service to my Country and it’s people. Now, since you’re so vocal the question begs, “What Have You Done For Your Country and its People?”

    *** Troll

    Rated “Three-star troll” for unsupportable, unjust generalizations.

    On the upside there are some truths here. So on average, an average (***) troll.

    I will render assistants to any Police Officer I see that is in need of my help, up to and including pulling my weapon and shooting anyone that puts an Officers life in danger. These Men and Women put on that uniform each and every day to protect us and place themselves in harms way in order to do so. I’m one American Citizen that will place myself (if the need arises) in harms way to insure that the Officer arrives back home to his or love-one’s safely.
