    Just by coincidence this “off-duty” porker happened to be “just” moving his car at 10 to midnight? Who does that? Does that not seem somewhat suspicious to detectives? Is this porker some crazy gun toting after hours tweaker or crackhead?!!! Hmmm, maybe something that should be looked into……especially if it was a Torrance Police officer.

      “Anti-pork” is spending way too much of his parent’s money puffing that herb. Hopefully he at least earns his allowance cleaning his room and stuff.

    Excellent. Now if it happens to me how will i legally be able to defend myself.
    I am 68 yrs old. Do ya think i should just punch em out…
    Oh you mean i can apply and be approved to carry, so i can defend my life just like this officer was able to. NO WAY… Only cops and bad guys can carry something to protect themselves.Boy ya gotta lov those liberals. Makes ya feel so safe..??
    NO your just a target cause the bad guys know that law abiding people dont carry anything to protect themselves.
