Had a buddy who was a highway patrol investigator. Knocked on a known meth cook’s door to do a “knock and talk”, pretext to obtain probable cause for a search. Cook did not wish to converse, and fired two rounds from an SKS through the roof. Mr. Trooper found himself moving expeditiously away from the door, acutely aware that all he was carrying was a Kel Tec .32!
Bought a Beretta 92 from a county detective once. He told me he didn’t need it anymore, since he was no longer on patrol. He was switching to a snubbie .38, because he said the department made him carry something.
Amazing sometimes the thought processes and personalities you see in law enforcement. Those investigators likely got complacent after years of no real trouble, and it bit them. They weren’t the first, and won’t be the last.
