    Why aren’t my comments being posted? They are not derrogatory or anything.

    Who said a police officer isn’t available when you need one? I’m surprised the police officer wasn’t carrying a firearm – if he had been, perhaps we’d be reading their obiturary today instead of their arrest record.
