“I regret to say that we of the FBI are powerless to act in cases of oral-genital intimacy, unless it has, in some way, obstructed interstate commerce.”
J. Edgar Hoover
These comments from a now-retired, skid-row beat-cop who worked his entire career in a large metro area, which then and now, can only be described as a “sewer:”
“I believe it was the FBI’s first Director, Hoover, who decreed that an agent should never draw his gun unless he is fully prepared to discharge it. Whatever can be said about J Edger’s dressing and romantic habits, I think he got that part right!
I don’t intend to display my otherwise concealed pistol, unless I’ve already decided it probably needs to be fired, multiple times. My antagonist has, from the time I grasp the weapon until the sights are aligned on his body, to decide what he wants to do with the rest of his life. I’ve already made the decision to end it!
Old-timers, who broke me in, fired their first shots at places like Anzio and Inchon and were as serious as an open grave!
Thank God I listened. Many of my colleagues failed to do so, and, unlike me, didn’t get to die of old age!”
Comment: During your training, we need to assist you in mentally and spiritually ascending to the conclusion that, while our lethal response to a deadly threat may predictably result in the end of a human life, in fact the VCA himself made the unilateral decision to risk death by presenting the threat in the first place.
It can be logically assumed, that anyone seriously threatening the safety of another should know that a lethal defensive response may well result, and that serious injury or death (to the VCA) is thus a strong possibility. That logic even extends to those foolish few deluded by the existence of “gun free” zones! We are not intentionally ending life, but are merely completing a logical sequence of events, set in motion by the VCA himself.
When you go armed, you need to accept this, or the resulting hesitation will render your gun irrelevant!
