For once, "Where's a cop when you need one," had the appropriate answer, "Right here, kids, right here!"
What did I hear just now...repeat that. "But, Russ, he was not an on-duty cop."
Yeah, you're right. Okay, this is good, pay attention, he was an educator carrying a firearm while performing one of his duties as an educator. That is even better considering the talk these days. An armed educator prevented harm to students.
WHAT? Say that again..."Russ, he wasn't carrying as an educator, he carried because he's a reserve cop."
I'm confused. You didn't like the "Where's a cop when you need one." Now you don't like that he is an educator carrying and saved students from harm because he was carrying because he's a police officer.
So, you do not want to give him credit for being a cop at the right place at the right time because he was not on duty. You do not want to give him credit for being an armed educator at the right place at the right time because he carried because he's a cop.
How about this? An armed citizen with a CPL was at the right place at the right time to save students at the local high school. "Russ, no, he was there as a coach, not a random citizen" He was...never mind...some people just like being miserable when good things happen. Go away, crawl back under your bridge.
