Onlookers help cop arrest violent suspect

December 21, 2017
Quote:
When a group of bystanders in South Carolina saw a suspect giving a female police officer a rough time, they jumped in and helped subdue the man. Donald Songster Brown was arrested and charged with resisting arrest, and also for allegedly punching a female gas station clerk before the police arrived.

It looked like two of Obama's cousins that jumped in and bailed out the officer as well.

There is an old FBI study out there that is not popular today, but it basically said that criminals size up all cops, and will attack depending upon their perceived ability to overcome a smaller officer, that is, if they have no handgun to shoot the cop with, in the first place

https://www.fbi.gov/news/pressrel/pr...-and-assaulted

About 50,000 assaults on cops each year, most are fights.
It pays to keep in shape, to run and to fight.

Many years ago I remember reading about the so called "cop fighters" in Los Angles.

These macho types would challenge a LAPD officer to a fist fight. No weapons to be used by either party. If the civilian beat the cop then he got a pass arrest wise. If he lost then off to jail he went. This happened in the 1940's and 1950's. But it pretty much came to a halt after some cops decided that it was a lot easier to just use their nightstick or blackjack on the fighter's head. Or maybe shoot them and build their reputation as a "gun fighter".....

I seriously doubt that today's breed of law enforcement officers would get involved in a "fair fight". There is nothing to be gained by it but possible serious injury or a lawsuit.

And so it goes.

The female police officer's heart was in it but she needs more training.

Black men are tough. I've never fought one, and don't really want to. When I was in school many years ago, and would have been tempted, us white guys still opted out. Couldn't fight just one of them. They stuck together.

The only place a black ever fights anybody one-on-one is in a professional boxing ring.

So a criminal gets a free pass if he wins a steet fight. That is some of the stupidest shit I have ever read.
