Wanna Guess What I Took Out Of The Back Of The Pants Of A Six-Year Old? A Cocked .32 Cal Revolver His Mama Had Shoved In There

BY Herschel Smith

Mr. LEO responds to our article on the Grand Rapids Police Department:

LOL. Constant “oh those horrible police!!!” You people are completely clueless. Wanna guess what I took out of the back of the pants of a six-year old? A cocked .32 cal revolver his mama had shoved in there to hide it when she heard me coming around the corner. A COCKED REVOLVER – IN YOUR CHILDS PANTS! You people live in a world of ignorance and stupidity. It is very very sad.

Thanks for your visit.  It’s always a bit amusing when a LEO (or former LEO) visits this site.  The working assumption is normally that we’re a progressive anti-cop site (because you read a single article), or that we’re a conservative site full of readers who believe in state authority and want the cops to protect them but are having a difficult time swallowing the hard, necessary things a cop must do to actually protect the poor “sheeple” under his charge, sheep dog that he is.

But we know, as do you, that you aren’t charged to protect anyone, legally or judicially.  All or most of the readers on this site have multiple firearms, carry them, and are able and willing to present and deploy them if the need arises.  We don’t want or need your protection.  If something happens, we’ll call you to write the report.  But we won’t talk to you about it, because we know that the (unbiblical) US Code says that any exonerating evidence you learn from your conversation with us must be excluded from court as hearsay, and that only incriminating evidence is admissible.

As for the little wheel gun you took off the boy, hmm … let me ponder that for a moment.

Okay, I’ve pondered it, and here is my response.  I don’t care.  Not one whit.  Not even a little bit.

Either that lady had a right to it (God gives everyone the right and duty of self defense), or she didn’t (e.g., she stole the firearm in which case she and her boy should have become the slaves of the offended party until the debt was paid threefold).  I don’t know the details of the case as do you.

But most readers here believe in Herschel’s Dictum, and if we had met this lady somewhere and she intended us harm with the weapon (or without), we should have been ready to present and defend ourselves.  As should you.  You should assume that everyone is armed all of the time.  That assumption doesn’t turn me into a pathological time bomb.  Nor should it you.

Thanks again.  Your visit was at least mildly amusing.  Oh, and if you violated the constitutional rights of the person you talked about with the revolver, then you should have your toenails pulled off.

    “…you should have your toenails pulled off (add “very slowly, one at a time”).

    I would very rarely assume to change your writings sir, but in this one case I beg your forgiveness for a little leeway. FIFY.

    I took a gun out of a child’s butt-crack is likely the story he tells his gang member buddies whenever he abuses a citizen.

    Very good response. There is a cancer in this country with law enforcement and it’s getting worse.

    More importantly, are you going to shoot the six year old because you think he’s gonna skin that rooster and start blasting?

    And where does this one hang his “You’re Fucked” sign? Butt crack again?

    Rest in peace Will Grigg. We miss you, really we do. But Mr Smith in his own style, is working hard to fill your shoes.

    The whole concept of police is out of control.

    They’re supposed to be a professional posse, with no powers beyond those possessed by me or anyone else. I can’t delegate powers I don’t possess to cops.

    If we rid ourselves of cops tonight at midnight, nothing much would change. Up here at the bunker, we only have sheriff’s deputies to be concerned with, don’t see them often which is fine with me.

    Say all cops are gone tomorrow. I believe the bad people would also be gone soon.

  9. On December 15, 2017 at 9:13 pm, TheAlaskan said:

    There should only be Sheriffs. They are the only elected peace officer. Their jurisdiction is only within the boundaries of their counties.

    There should be no State Cops. There should be no City Cops. There should only be the elected Sheriff, serving the people in each, separate, sovereign county.

    Alaskan…..right on!!!! Constitutional ones at that.

  11. On December 15, 2017 at 11:28 pm, The Gray Man said:

    I agree with the Alaskan. I see no purpose for any LEO aside from an elected sheriff with limited powers to delegate to those he deputizes.

    This is a watershed posting, if ever there was one, including:

    “The whole concept of police is out of control…
    ” I can’t delegate powers I don’t possess to cops.”

    Thank you both for reminding us of the facts!

    I like the sheriff idea. Someone like Clint Eastwood, with spurs.

    Mr. LEO,
    You might have a point except that in the last decade there are literally hundreds of cases of police murdering and maiming innocents. I could list them until my computer blows up but you get the idea.

    One of my favorites is the elderly woman living with her disabled daughter who was not tech savy enough to put a password on her wi-fi. A rant against the police by an unknown party got her house raided by a SWAT team who used flash bangs and concussion grenades to blow out her windows. I bet she is a big LEO fan today. By the way. I am a retired LEO.

    I agree with the above only Sheriffs should have the ability to enforce Malum in se laws…

    I’ve posted this link several months ago, but it seems just as relevant now as it did then…Are Cops Constitutional? (spoiler alert: no.)

    Hmmmmmm, I wonder where all the copsuckers are.

    A little too much logic here, I suppose.

    Former police officer, here. Over the past few years I have watched police in the US turn into cowards, avoiding contact with real bad guys, and enforcing their own ego needs. This is due to a number of factors…The general level of fractured male ego in this country, our obsession with symbols and those that hide behind them, racial politics encroaching into police hiring and policies, and our entertainment/phony hero/comic book BS of a culture. I also fear that the American people are ready to believe and do ANYTHING, even the abuse/torture of prisoners. Hard to believe we are not cursed…

    I particularily like the part about exculpatory statements to police not admissible but incriminating evidence (statements?) being admissible.

    Herschel, if you’ve already expanded on this, could you respond with a link? If not, I’m sure I’m not the only one who’d like to see more…
