      You nailed it Bushfan.  Great advice that many grown men can’t seem to follow.

    •  Half of these stories wouldn’t be stories or standoff’s if the police didn’t have to get involved in everything. Cant make a “threatening remark” without someone seriously thinking you are going to murder them.
