So a couple arrive at a house. They are sweet and cute and are acquainted with one of the occupants. Using their sweet and friendly disposition they end up in one of the bedrooms with everyone.
The girl tells the guy she heard he had a gun, and she would love for him to show it to her as she gives him a flirty smile. He pulls out his weapon and no sooner was it in her hands than her male companion displays his own firearm and proceeds to give him a pistol whipping to remember as she holds the rest at bay with the gun he just surrendered to her.
They perpetrate the rest of their crime unhindered.
It turned out they knew he had a gun, and they knew that to successfully complete their crime, they needed to get it away from him. Their tactic? Sweet words and flattering ‘arguments’ in a dress.
It was swift and brutal violence that transpired the moment they were no longer ‘equals’.
We, as police officers, routinely clean up ‘after’ the crime to bring people to justice. Our job is ‘reactionary’ not ‘preventative’ which means…
It is still necessary to be responsible for ones own safety, and that may require the application of reasonable and necessary force by the intended victim or third party.
I don’t want any responsnle citizen to be made ‘unequal’ to the bad guys.
Sometimes the bad guys are dressed like politicians.
In either case you won’t see their nefarious side until they are more ‘equal’ than the people they rule… er.. represent I mean.
