J.C. BOSWELL December 9, 1989 Officer Boswell and his partner, Officer Gainer, stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation. While the officers were speaking with the violator, they were approached by a woman who asked for their assistance with a domestic dispute. Craig Neil Ogan also approached the officers and asked for help. The officers asked the woman and Ogan to wait until they completed their traffic stop then they would attend to them. Ogan stated that he worked for the DEA and he began beating on the patrol car's windows. Officer Boswell exited the patrol car to deal with the angry man at which time Ogan pulled a pistol and shot him in the head at point blank range. Ogan then fled the scene on foot. Officer Gainer immediately pursued Ogan and shot him once in the leg and arrested him. Ogan is now on death row awaiting execution. *********************************************­* Hey, there's no reason to be suspicious of people, and pat them for weapons before talking to them, is there?

The difference here Rapid_Fire, is that the individual actually showed true aggression against the cops prior to the shooting. This wasn't a guy that the police pulled over an coerced first...or a guy that pulled out his wallet. themao [chainsawkill]

Hey guys, this stuff is just sad. I give credit where credit is due, and I dish out the blame/flame just as directly. I have been accused of cop bashing before, but the truth is that I truly admire them for the job that they do. The bottom line is that their are certain dangers associated with certain jobs. When you put on the badge/camo/blue suit, you understand those risks and have decided that they can be dealt with on a personal level. I'm not saying that cops lives are less important than others, just that the risk goes with the job. I am sorry for the loss of human life from any profession, and I feel for their families.

Draw your own conclusions, but... One time I got pulled over for not signaling in a left turn only lane at night. No other cars around except for the cop tailing me. The cops used the stop as their invitation to harass me and illegally search my vehicle. Without asking of course. I was detained on the spot for over an hour and accused of trying to rob a gas station. Wonder what gave them that idea? Many units arrived to assist female officer. Four or five cars including K9. When I asked about the BS turn signal thing, the cop said she would have found a reason to pull me over no matter what. When I brought this up in traffic court, she flat out denied making such a comment. The sgt arrived on the scene and said a whole bunch of shit to my face. Threatening to throw me in jail if I said another word.

INTELLIGENCE VIOLATION!!!!!INTELLIGENCE VIOLATION!!!!!! Wake up Rapid_Fire someone, he is in the dreaded coma of stupidity. Hundreds of people are killed in accidents every day, and I drive 100 miles every day therefore im a hero too. A cop dies he dies for his job. His rights weren't violated, he wen't into these situations knowingly. The fact that you don't see this just shows how warped your sence of civil liberties are. People like you are why cops are more feared then respected. Cops can do wrong, they do it everyday. Not all but there numbers are growing. Guncrazy223

Rapid Fire, so if an officer gets shot in the line of duty he is always right? I have several very good friends in several departments. They hold all diffrent ranks from Chief to patrol officer and are men I respect. There are also men in all these same offices that I despise with all my heart and hope will be removed legally. Having rode a Harley extensivly in the 70's until now when it is popular I can tell you there are some very bad eggs out there. I will mention just one. My friend was pulled over for an infraction, I believe it was speeding. I circled the block and stopped back from the officer and my friend, I was about 35 yards behind them. I shut off my bike and looked the other way when I saw the officer writing the ticket, I wanted to not intrude, not my business. Officer gets through writing ticket to my friend and walks back to me. "Hey asshole put out that cigarette!" I said I thought this was a public street sir. He started to pull his duty weapon. I put the smoke out slowly and picked up the butt not wanting a littering citation. Gee I really have great thoughts towards folks like him. I had not said a word or intruded nor moved in his direction. Have a nice day sir! Say the next day this fellow would have been injured or worse in the line of duty because of HIS attitude or ineptness. Then you could have written a wonderfull flowing eulogy about your fallen comrade. Wake up, there are bad officers out there, and some of them have bad things happen to them. I hate that bad things also happen to good officers also. It is a super bad deal and I hope those that do something to them are summarilary dealt with. An officers death doesn't say he was either bad or a good officer, and this death doesn't automatically justify all the mistreatment that rouge officers do. Wake up.

Dude, I don't think ANYONE is advocating harm to LEO's!! All the rank & file LEO's that quietly go about doing a great job everyday in the USA, laying there lives on the line & dealing with all kinds of other B.S. are appreciated. BUT why can't we call out the few Bad Apples when we see 'em ????? I don't think we're slamming all LEO's everywhere! Any line of work, any profession you have some jerk-offs & idiots. If a FEW A-hole cops get out of line we may call them on it. What's the problem with that??????? All those that do their job & do it well, my hat is off to them. Almost any State Trooper I've encountered here in Texas is very professional & by the book BUT I've met a few real ignorant/arrogant/badge&gun types that inevitably are local deputy Sheriff's or Constables that shouldn't have badges BUT that's the local politics/cronie'ism here with some elected LEO's. Most of the municipal LEO's seem relatively professional too. I guess a lot of it has to do with the quality of the training for each organization. Anyway, use some discretion/judgement to understand the difference between LEO's we thank for their hard work & when we get legitimately pissed off when the system let's a few bad apples run amuck & abuse their power!

There are good and bad in every job. for every 1000 cops who do a good job, you hear of one publicized commiting a crime.... for every 1000 priests who help people, you hear of one publicized molesting small boys....for every 1000 auto mechanics that fixes your car right, you hear of one publicized for unnecessary repair charges. the list goes on and one, I am a realist, I believe that there are bad people, and bad people have many talents and will use those talents in bad ways. You don't always know what a person is capable of and when. I also believe that the majority (anything more than 50%...hopefully much more) of people are good. they may be misinformed, misguided, but still good at heart. I have LEO friends, and hope I never have to attend their funeral. I know there are bad cops out there, and I hope they are taken care of by proper channels, that does not include vigilante or other "bad cop hunters". I will always regret the lose of any LEO who dies in the performance of his duties, but building up the one sided "here's a bad cop" story and not remembering the other 1000 who aren't bad is not realistic. This thread is good, some of it's detractors are misguided. But, you don't have to agree with me, after all I'm No_Expert

So what's your point? I can give dozens of examples of cops doing more harm than good. I'm a charge nurse in an emergency room, and deal with police on an almost daily basis. While most of the time they pass as reasonably professional, a great many of the ones I know, have a chip on their shoulder the size of Texas, arn't very pleasant to be around, and will willingly violate your rights, even assault people without provocation, just to show you they can, and that there is little if anything you can do about it! It's sad to say but I believe many LEO's do more harm than good. I've been openly asked to lie and falsify documentation. I can even name one that is quite simply a criminal with a badge. Yes, I've filed complaints about them to their chain of command. I've even offered sworn afadavids that I personally witnessed them lie, steal, and assault people without provocation, but it has never resulted in anything, but more threats and intimidation directed toward me. I'd "like" to believe that most LEO's are basicly good, or that there are more good cops than bad, but my personal experience doesn't support that belief.

Some of the comments in this thread got me to thinking "Gee, how dangerous is being a cop afterall?" As it turns out, from the standpoint of homicide, police rank pretty high. Topping the list are taxi drivers and chauffeurs, then sherrifs and baliffs, they police officers. Taxi drivers are about twice as likely as sherrifs to be a victim of homicide on the job. Sherrifs are about twice as likely as police officers to be victims. Police are on par with gas station attendents and security guards. Most people are aware that all of these jobs have significantly higher that average risk of violence, although it is kind of shocking that taxi driver is so far ahead of the pack. From the standpoint of overall danger however, the brave taxi driver just barely makes the top ten. Fishermen and timbercutters top the list. Believe it or not, airline pilot makes the top ten as do transportation attendants "aka stewardesses". Apparently as safe as air travel is for the consumer, it is fairly risky for the provider. This is not meant to diparage police officers by any means. It does offer some perspective however. Since the major risk to police officers is homicide, and since police homicides enjoy wide media coverage, there is an impression that police officer is a uniquely dangerous occupation. I don't think that too many people would guess that airline stewardess is a more dangerous line of work than police officer. In fact I have a hard time believing it myself. In particular, the argument that common citizens should abrogate their own civil rights out of deference to the unusually high personal risks that police officers face isn't supported by the facts.

Judgement Day For A Police Officer The police officer stood and faced his Maker, which must always come to pass. He hoped his shoes were shining, just as brightly as his brass. "Step forward now, police officer how shall I deal with you? Have you always turned the other cheek? To your Maker, have you been true?" The police officer, with squared shoulders, said "No sir, I guess I ain't. Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint. I've had to work most Sundays and at times my talk was rough, and sometimes I've been violent, because the streets are tough. But I never took a penny, that wasn't mine to keep. Though I worked a lot of overtime when the bills just got too steep. And I never passed by a cry for help though at times I shook with fear, and sometimes, please forgive me, I've wept unmanly tears. I know I don't deserve a place among the people here. They never wanted me around except to calm their fears. But if you have a place for me here, well...it need not be too grand. I never expected or had too much so if you don't...I'll understand." There was silence all around the room where the saints respectfully stood. As the police officer waited quietly, for the judgment...bad or good. "Step forward now, police officer, you've borne your burdens well. Come walk a beat on heaven's streets, You've done your time in hell."

Why was Carl Drega arrested that day? New Hampshire Attorney General Phillip McLaughlin pulls out his best weasel words, reporting the troopers had stopped Drega's pickup because of a "perception of defects." Earlier wire accounts reported they were preparing to ticket him for having "rust holes in the bed of his pickup truck."
View Quote
The last straw for the long-suffering Carl Drega came when two local cops pulled him over in the parking lot of a local supermarket a couple years back, and started writing him a ticket for having "rust holes in the bed of his pick-up truck" ... a pick-up truck whose state-issued license plate read: "Live Free Or Die." I'm not celebrating what Carl Drega did. I'm not predicting Nevada's harmless Jim Howard will follow in his footsteps -- nor am I encouraging him to. I'm just saying that occasionally, one of these old-timers who only wants to be left alone can be pushed too far. We can't ask the two cops who pulled Carl Drega over, that last time, what finally made him snap. Nor can we ask his long-term tormentor, the part-time judge and town administrator who Carl Drega sought out, downtown, after he was done with that traffic stop. Because you see, Judge Oesterle, those cops, and that New Hampshire judge ... they're all dead. And no one's pushing Carl Drega around, any more.

Cops know what they are getting into when they take he job. No one forced them to take it. Part of that job is placing yourself in life-threatening situations. If they don't want to do that, they shouldn't become cops. Part of that job also is to uphold and defend the Constitution, even if that means placing yourself in greater jeopardy. Often it does. The Army is a better job for those who do not want to worry about pesky things like people's rights. Their job is simply to kill the enemy. People are not the enemy of the cop, criminals are. The hard part is distinguishing between the two. This is what also makes it more dangerous. If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen.

I'll put this same reply as I did in this twerps other posts. I find it disgusting that someone would use an LEO's death to make a point in a debate. When someone generalizes anothers point of view to justify theirs it is called PROPAGANDA.... Anti-gunners use it all the time. Don't disrespect these officers and their families with this behavior. It makes someone who is undecided look at your behavior and not your message to make their decision.

How many of "them" did you actually "infuriate"??? I think your over estimating your impact. 27 individuals replied & only a few seemed pissed Maybe you need to try harder [;D] [:K]
