Just got this in an email and have no link or proof of accuracy.



“THE AVERAGE RESPONSE TIME FOR A 911 CALL IS FOUR MINUTES

THE AVERAGE RESPONSE TIME FOR A .357 MAGNUM ROUND IS 1400 FEET PER SECOND”


What could happen if you screw with a law enforcement officer in Texas .......
Here is the latest from the El Paso , TX PD

Living on the border, we are all familiar with criminals coming from Mexican gangs. In this situation, three armed felons crossed the US border, and tried to rob an off duty El Paso , Texas Police Officer dressed in civilian clothes while he stood in front of a bank.

The plan was for two of them to grab his backpack and toss it to an accomplice on a stolen motorcycle. However, the well prepared Police Officer shot all of them, managing to kill 2 immediately. The 3rd one was shot in both arms and bled to death before help arrived.
Gun used: a 40 cal.

Do you realize how much the US taxpayer saved by not having to prosecute these worthless thugs?



This guy won't be around much longer.
Final score:
Good Cop: Three
Bad guys: Zero

Good to know a backpack is worth more than three lives.

I have to agree with ruger 41. Here are the pictures I got. They look like somewhere in So America.

These are not for the sqeemish, so if you dont like to see police work at its finest.... DONT LOOK BELOW.....









































This one is the ofcr standing over one of the thugs. He is wearing his badge around his neck and is still covering the bad guy...... Damn I got blood on my shirt.


A crowd has gathered, the cop on the left looks like a typical latin nation motor cop. About now these guys are thinking.... maybe this wasn't such a good idea.


Waiting for CSI........


This one was shot thru both arms. Notice the extra elbow on his left arm.

When it is MY backpack and it is some LOWLIVES, yes.

I always fire two warning shots; one to the chest, one to the head.

Life's tough. It's even tougher when you're stupid.

And the Philistine arose, and drew nigh to meet David.
And David put his hand in his bag, and drew out a stone, and slung it, and smote the giant in his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth.
I Samuel 17:48-49

"I don’t know how much money I’ve made in my life, but I’ve spent it all. I can’t think of anything I got a better return on than my dogs." JamesRK 04/01/2010

"The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles." —Jeff Cooper, The Art of the Rifle

Thats in Brazil. Gravia (as seen in the background) is a structural tube steel/sheet metal/metal home products supplier in Brazil.
