We've certainly seen cases in which "grabbing for the cops gun" received a harsher treatment than being "subdued." Congratulations to the unidentified officer for doing the right thing.A man suspected of tending an illegal marijuana grow Tuesday morning near Highway 70 reportedly tried to remove a handgun from the holster of a deputy taking him into custody.
The suspect, Humberto Lepe-Cervantes, 25, of Jalisco, Mexico, grabbed the firearm, but was quickly subdued, a press release stated.
No other suspects were located. The deputy wasn't immediately identified.
A total of 6,018 mature marijuana plants and 550 pounds of processed marijuana was removed.
Or, I should say for not killing the stupid gun grabber (you see, this is the proper use of that expression). Being involved in a marijuana raid, of course, is not the right thing. This is waste of everybody's time and money.
What's your opinion? Why do some cops subdue the criminals and get their hands dirty, so to speak, while others just blow them away? Does it depend more on the circumstances or the temperment of the police involved?
