    So this devastatingly handsome patrol officer I know (not me of course) goes to a call of a protective order violation. Estranged hubby is coming over to kill wifey. Wifey lives on a 9-hole golf course in her back yard. She sees hubby coming. Their son tips her off of dad's intentions. She smartly drives away, and meets the devastatingly handsome patrol cop on the other side of the golf course. Hubby is on foot and is walking straight toward wife and patrol cop, but a few hundred yards away.

    "Did he threaten to kill you?"

    "Yes. He's supposed to have a gun."

    Handsome pulls out patrol rifle to cover guy who is still walking toward them with a purpose.

    "You're not going to shoot him are you?"

    That question surprised the devastatingly handsome patrol officer. What did she think the cops were there to do? Negotiate with him to give her up so he could do whatever he wanted? Should the cops just leave so only she gets hurt?

    Guy threw something into a large pond that was deemed by higher ups as unlikely to be recovered. Backup arrives. Hubby - who was almost blind drunk - was taken into custody without much incident.

    The patrol cop looked good doing this, and that's what's important. But some people's lack of grasp on the reality of what we have to do is shocking.

    So, how hard do you think the "thing" in the pond would be to recover?

    Oh, yeah. Domestics are a mess.

    Should have held out the rifle to her and said, "Me? no, YOU are."

    How was it relevent that he was devastatingly handsome? Why must we continue to label the beautiful people? This kind of profiling has to STOP!

  10. Well you stud you! Saved the day, got the clueless chick, didn't thump drunk ex.

    But her response doesn't surprise me. As Vigilant wrote, sheeple.

    Not really, but I think it makes the story better if you always imagine the chick as smoking hot. So yes. I heard.

    Did you..er, the officer have his hat on? What were her teeth like? Did she have a Bravia? Did she steal your iPad? Could it have been a KaBar that hubby threw into the pond? So many unanswered questions about this contact!
