Public sides heavily with Farmington man who fired gun to stop burglary suspect
Area residents are feeling sympathetic with Dennis Fleming's decision to fire a weapon at the ground after finding his Ten Rod Road home burglarized and keeping the suspect at bay until police arrived.
Has this been posted somewhere?
Anyway, can I call the police "dumbasses" here, without fear of being contradicted?
Had the guy killed the burglar, he probably would have been better off. That's the police mentality as well, they can't imagine shooting not to kill.
Anyway, the police don't seem to have been protecting the neighbothood in this case, and God forbid the citizens should take it upon themselves. Next thing you know the dumb citizens will think they can do more themselves, and demand less from the government.
And wouldn't THAT throw a monkey wrench into the whole works.
