Over the years, on various internet gun and civil liberties forums I have witnessed a divide between the patrol officer and the citizen. The lack of understanding invariably led to entrenched arguments on each side of the coin, each not without merit. I have studiously avoided these arguments, especially on forums which I moderate. I have engaged in one on one debate on the issues with law enforcement officers whom I respect. As a nurse, working with the public in an official capacity in a high stress area that is foreign to the public, I feel I understand a little of what officers of the law experience on the job. Hopefully, I will understand better in the future.
Expect to hear a bit more about these experiences in the future..........
