TKC EXCLUSIVE FACT CHECK!!! RADICAL RIGHT WING 'GOOD GUY WITH GUN' RHETORIC EXPOSED: OFF-DUTY COP STOPPED LENEXA COSTCO THREAT!!! INSIDER SEYZ: SUPPORT POLICE NOT POLITICO KEYBOARD WARRIORS!!!
Social media rhetoric shot from the hip and missed yesterday afternoon in their efforts back up the stupid NRA talking point that gunfights in the streets make us all safer.
Off-duty officer kills man brandishing a gun at Lenexa Costco
Now, to be fair, the officer who put his life on the line to protect people in the store is, in fact, a very good guy.
A description of heroism:
“There was a cop in there shopping so he wasn’t in uniform. When he found out what was going on he pulled out his gun and his badge and held it up to let everyone know he was a cop . . .".
Shortly after, people who had evacuated the store heard gunshots coming from inside."
Okay . . .
SO THE "GOOD GUY" WAS A VERY WELL-TRAINED POLICE OFFICER NOT SOME YOKEL CCW DWEEB WITH A BAD ATTITUDE AND WORSE AIM!!!
Last year, a good Samaritan in Shawnee saved a woman from attackers with his weapon . . . The Samaritan was A RETIRED AIR FORCE OFFICER PACKING HEAT.
And so . . .
Let's get over the myth that keyboard warriors are going to rescue innocent people . . . That NEVER happens. Instead it just ends up costing those old fools money like in the case of trigger happy Prez Trump supporter David Jungerman who lost a $6-million+ verdict and still gets cross-eyed looks over the murder and unsolved cold case of Tom Pickert.
We put in a message to one of our po-po friends who offered just a bit more insight on the Internets rhetoric surrounding this off-duty police shooting.
"If anything, this is another sign that community outreach by law enforcement works. I see a lot of so-called Conservatives talking trash about police just as bad as 'Black Lives Matter' when it comes active shooter situations. But the facts show us that having law enforcement build trust with the community is the best way to fight nearly every form of crime. I don't have a problem with people defending themselves but let's be realistic - This case in Lenexa shows us that the police are part of our communities and they work to protect people both on and off-duty. This isn't a knock against CCW, it's just a the truth that police are putting in more gun training every week than a hobbyist. It's our job."
Again, don't get it twisted TKC rabidly supports CCW and the 2nd Amendment. But the fantasy that armed d-bags in MAGA hats are going to help anybody but themselves to a 3rd or 4th sandwich needs to be shut down for the safety of us all.
