My friend, Curt, did not respect or feel any sort of confidence in Minnesota law enforcement officers.
Then again, Curt was on his third DUI.....so, there's that.
I was standing in line at a gas station, buying a snack and dude in front of me paid for it without me knowing...
He then turned around and said "Anybody who really matters still like the police."
He took a sip from his straw and walked out...
that is so true.
GD doesn't really matter to anyone.
Google 'Minneapolis Gang Strike Force' if you think the Minneapolis police are 'good'.

On balance, I like most cops and appreciate the job they do.
I also know I could never do that job.
A man has to know his limitations, and that is one of mine.
Having made that observation, it does not mean that I believe my 2A rights and appreciation for LE are mutually exclusive. Please feel free to drop by my house, Johnny Law, to draw a chalk outline around any potential home invaders of the Pilum family residence.
Carry on, LEO's. Keep up the good work.
