Side effect of the ninjafication of the police

In Baltimore:

Baltimore city police are looking for four gunmen who posed as police officers to force their way into a home downtown.

Police said the gunmen also pistol-whipped several occupants before fleeing without any money or property.

Criminals now think (with good cause) that they can bust in, announce they are police, and score some loot without the risk of being shot. Sorry, but in the Uncle house, said announcement does not give you a Get out of being shot free card. That’s just how it is. I can’t help but think that if more people shared my position (well, and my hardware), that there might be a sharp decline in the number of both home invasions and no-knock raids of the wrong house.

Update: People like to use the word Militarization. I don’t because that implies some things; such as training, discipline, and hardware. Those are good things for the police to have. That’s why I use the term Ninjafication, to describe the fact these guys put on their ninja gear, creep up on a house, and get all Tactical Tommy on people. Only criminals and ninjas should have any cause to cover their faces. I think it’s an important distinction.

    Hear, hear the Uncle.

    Anyone can put on a cop uniform. I can get one any time I wish, but that doesn’t make me Deputy Dog. What makes the police distinguishable from gangsters is their protocol and I choose to retain my respect for police, and for their proper ways. Therefore, anyone who smashes in my door wearing a mask will be presumed criminal and will be met with maximum force in reply. This is as it should be in a polite society.

    I’m with you. Bust in my door and you’re gonna meet 45 ACPs coming your direction. I have no reason to think that cops would be coming to my house (especially like that) so I’m gonna assume that you are up to no good and respond in kind. I hope to God it never happens but if it does all those hours on the range will not have been wasted.

    see my comment above regarding no knocks. In a case of that, it don’t end until I say it ends or I am dead. There ain’t no walk away and forget about it.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
