I just have to get this off my chest. This morning I took my usual morning walk/jog around 5 am. As I was coming around the the second turn in my neighborhood I saw a sherrif deputy standing in the middle of the road. I immediatly figure they are looking for someone and think about turning around but he has already spotted me. So, not wanting to look like I was running away I kept going, confident that common sense would prevail. As I get closer I keep waiting to here " stop" or "identify yourself" or something along those lines. He stands there quietly, looking at me. So now I say "good morning officer". At this point I'm expecting some kind of reply like "can I ask you a few questions" . Needless to say I am stunned when he pulls out his hand cannon and tells me to stop, turn around and put my hands on my head. I stop and look at him like he's nuts so he screams louder this time and steps towards me with his gun pointed at me Now I'm staring down the barrel of a hot headed cops gun. And the way this guys acting I'm waiting to get shot or kicked or tackled or whatever else gives cops the jollies. This is not what I was expecting. So I comply and he pats me down and asks the standard questions. Things get figured out and he lets me go. Apparently someone's car got broken into and the cops were combing the area. My whole issue is with his freaking gun. I really don't think that was necessary and frankly I'm a bit PO'd. I've never had a gun in my face by some cop, I figured they had to have some kind of justification to pull a weapon. Oh, let me guess, he felt threatened (standard cop response). Anyway, thats been bugging me all day. I apologize to any PROFESSIONAL cops out there who know how to treat people with respect.
