ETA: This was directed at GasTurbine.
I'm actually Italian/Russian but my skin is naturally "olive-colored" and in the summer I am mistaken as Hispanic all the time when I tan. Where I grew up it was so culturally diverse that being "Caucasian" I was actually the minority believe it or not!

Who wrote the rule saying that racial categorization is OK when it comes to qualifying for hand-outs and jobs, but verboten when it comes to describing criminals?
I was working for a company sub-contracted by Homeland Security and was "laid off" Come to find out they gave my schedule to a fellow who lets just say spoke English as a second language.......go fig. I should have sued

I crawled down in to a hole with a loaded 1911, a bayonet and with a grenade in each pocket.
I wasn't a LEO, but I was grinning from ear to ear when I went in.

"... and pointed it into the face of an asian guy that was standing there."

But no, he just happened to be black. He was just telling us his story. You totally blew this out of proportion.
+1. I'm honestly pretty bummed this thread had to be hijacked like this. .

But I guess its no big deal... all these stories are fake, dont yall know that honest responsible gun owners NEVER stop any crime or act in self defense?

I hurt someone's feelings once. I don't recall whether he was white or black or hispanic though.

You're a RACIST!

Just let us know when you recall who you offended so we can properly categorize your racism, OK?

Very interesting and heart-stopping stories; I love learning and imagining myself in the same or similar situation. That said, let's please don't use the name of Jesus as a slang/curse word. I assure you, you will regret it one day.

I live in an apartment complex and was awoken one night at 3 am by yelling, saying "open this *******ing door" ect and pounding. Sounded like it was coming from my neighbor's door and not mine. Fearing for my neighbors life, I walked out with my Glock 27 pointed at the ground in my hand and told the three individuals to please leave, as I had a baby that was trying to sleep. They said they were trying to get back one of their wallets they left in their friend's house. When they saw the gun they were very polite and left after apologizing profusely.

Why did you have to go there Gas Turbine? Can't you let some of your thoughts stay inside for the good of a good post?

I have two dogs, one white and one black. It just so happens my black dog is a trouble maker. It's called the English language, Nouns, Pronouns,Verbs, etc!!! WTF dude?

Did you get the black dog from the kennel...i.e., has your black dog done time?

You can defend obvious racism anyway you want, it still does not make it racism.







If I were white, I wouldnt either. This is about racism, stereotyping, and labeling.



I dont really care what you will tolerate or not...you have clearly demonstrated what caliber of a person you are, and will not waste my time on hate and ignorance, nor go through life as a miserable antagonist.

Good luck in life.

I can understand that indicating he was a BLACK male is racist but in reality then isn't describing him as a black MALE sexist? Wouldn't it be better to describe the crime subject as a "human" or perhaps a "member of the species homo sapiens?" And in reality is that discriminatory to a specific species (which if I understood Latin might be redundant.) Would it be better to simply refer to the crime subject as a "mammal?"

Neal Boortz used to give an example of BOLO for a bank robber where they couldn't give the race, height, weight, sex....it was "be on the lookout for a person that allegedly robbed a bank".

Sorry but I have a wife and a daughter to tend to and support. I can't spend my life slinking through other peoples posts spewing random diarrhea of the mouth around. It's a shame this post took that bad of a turn. The purpose of this post was to allow non-LEO "everyday Joes" to share experiences involving their 2nd amendment rights with others who can relate. The fact that you name-dropped me fuzzy-no nuts just shows how pathetic you really are (as if it wasn't obvious enough in your other brainless posts).....sad really.

What is it with you and Mr. No Nuts? Just because I have a personality and happen to be a good conversationalist.....does that make you.....wait for it....wait for it....jealous perhaps. Don't worry, there's a Dummy's guide to growing a personality floating around out there somewhere. Consider yourself flooded

Why don't you get over yourself and find another thread to screw up. If I remember correctly in his post it was dark out or maybe i just assumed it was dark giving the description of a skinny colored man sneaking up on him some explanation. Go away.
