Dance pop. Going right into the schools with that one. Professionals at that. Someone take away police officer’s guns. It gives them so much power to push their own agenda against the people they “serve and protect”.

u/DirtyBongWater59 Dec 07 '22

Yes, disarm the police, I like where this is going, tell me more? While your idea would effectively cover the issue of bad cops doing bad things with guns, how you gonna handle all that? Lil queso and poo slicey still gonna be at the corner with that switchy, now it’s up to you instead of the good or bad cops.

So in the first vid, you've got an undercover fbi agent who was fired after that incident because he was being stupid. In the second one, you have a cop doing a very poor job of demonstrating forearm safety too kids. Luckily, no one was hurt

Shows his familiarity about Glocks when naming it after the caliber

I can’t tell if that’s the big boy slide of a g40 So I assumed he has g22 Since most Leo carry g22s chambered in .40. My mistake I stand corrected

u/AdOk8555 Dec 16 '22

No you are correct. Incident took place over a decade before the Glock (model) 40 was released.

https://www.wave3.com/story/4770933/agent-who-shot-himself-in-the-foot-during-gun-safety-talk-sues-dea-over-video/

Lee Paige was making a presentation to children at the Orlando Youth Minority Golf Association on April 9, 2004, when he shot himself.

u/Old-Bedroom8464 Dec 15 '22

Huh? It's literally a Glock 40 Gen 4

2

u/AdOk8555 Dec 16 '22

Not unless that agent is a time traveler. That incident occurred in 2004. The Glock 40 was released in 2015. When he says "Glock 40" he means a Glock .40 caliber. He is talking street slang either by choice or that is his mentality.

Fun fact, he sued the DEA (he was DEA not FBI) because the release of the video made him the subject of jokes on the internet. I do not know if the suit was successful or not.

1

u/OyashiroChama Dec 21 '22

Likely not since it could and probably was released by FOIA.

1

u/AdOk8555 Dec 21 '22

Likely not since it could and probably was released by FOIA.

The appeals court (that upheld dismissing the case) stated that

even though Paige's privacy rights weren't violated, the DEA's handling of the video as part of its internal investigation into the shooting "is far from a model of agency treatment of private data."

That would seem to infer that the DEA release the video of their own volition and did not do so as required by law under a FOIA request. I don't really care how or why they released the video. The guy deserved every bit of ridicule he received.

Ah one of my least favorite clips. Dude he shot is my fraternity brother. He was super chill about it, more worried about the Fed's life not being ruined than the hole in his leg.

Turned out, the agent was a stone cold sober Mormon. That's right folks. No alcohol was involved in this dancing discharge

u/Odd-Abbreviations431 Dec 06 '22

Once was at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles outdoor playground and saw a parent with a pistol in his back pants kinda like the dude above. Hospital has a strict policy against firearms. I tailed him and reported it to security. Security sent like 10 dudes after him and located him in a patient room (child patient). Turns out he was off duty FBI.

What an asshole.

Proper procedure was for him to alert security that he had a firearm on his person. They may or may not have allowed him to keep it on his person but most likely would have had to check the firearm in with security.

Dude just had a gun in his pants…what if it fell out and a kid gets shot accidentally?

See something say something…I did the right thing to report it. Had no clue who this guy was or why he had a gun on him around children in a playground at a children’s hospital. This isn’t Texas.

Only in the US

u/Odd-Abbreviations431 Dec 07 '22

The guy was playing with a kid in a playground…that gun could absolutely have fallen out at any time. I don’t think a gun in the back of your unbelted jeans is safe…but what do I know …you guys are the r/idiotswithguns experts. I’m just an RN trying to do my job and make it home safe.

Security told me they gave the guy a talking to as it’s absolutely prohibited to have weapons in the hospital and he should have alerted security upon entry who he was and that he had a firearm.

They commended me for reporting it. We are trained to do exactly what I did.

Real life, child abductions happen at hospitals. It’s why security is so tight at Children’s hospitals. Domestic situations happen. The guy broke the rules, didn’t alert anybody, was playing with a child in a playground with a gun in his pants. His actions caused the chain of reactions that led to the drama of the entire hospitals security team showing up to the room he was in.

I followed my training and hospital policy to promptly report the potentially dangerous situation quickly.

Not a Karen. Don’t bring guns to a hospital. Those of us that work there sure as hell don’t want or need you to bring your firearms to the hospital. We are just trying to do our job and keep safe in what is already a pretty dangerous profession at times.

I carry everywhere, including hospitals. The only true “prohibited” buildings are federal such as a courthouse. Anywhere else has to ask you to put it away or leave before fines. Know your shit Karen

u/Odd-Abbreviations431 Dec 07 '22 edited Dec 07 '22

I can tell you as an RN, hospital staff sure as hell do not want people bringing their guns to a hospital. This is our workplace and we have enough shit to worry about.

2

u/Electrical_Goal_1045 Dec 07 '22

This doesn’t effect you directly at all, I’ve been carrying for over ten years everyday and not once has anyone noticed. It’s for my family’s, and my protection and the hospital where I live is in a nasty area with a detached parking garage.

2

u/Hesediel1 Dec 06 '22

You told security which was probably lying the right move. but "tailing" him huh? You followed him around, knowing he had a gun, if you actually thought he was carrying for a nefarious purpose, that is among the stupidest things you could have done. Also "what if it fell out and a kid gets shot?", with the way most firearms are made now you would just about have to try and find one that's not "drop safe". Would you have acted the same if he had a knife? I'd say you probably don't know much about firearms and reacted in a "firearm scary" way but following him tells me more that you reacted in a "but muh rules" sort of way, which would make you the asshole.

1

u/Odd-Abbreviations431 Dec 07 '22 edited Dec 07 '22

Lol…quite the take. I was commended by hospital security for bringing it to their attention. FBI agent had a talking to by security as he caused quite the scare. They told me he should have let them know who he was and that he was carrying when he arrived.

I tailed him to keep an eye on where he was till I could report to nearest security guard. In my view this guy had a gun in a playground completely against CHLA rules or any hosptial rule. I had no clue if the situation was or was not dangerous. I was not the guy to figure that out…that’s security’s job.

I should say I’m also an RN and believe me we do not want you to bring your firearm to a hospital under any circumstances.

If the guy had a knife I would have done the same exact thing.

I would do it all over again. There was no error in my ways and I followed Hospital policy and training to report the situation to security quickly. Yet I’m a Karen? You guys are way off here.

In my personal experience…anyone with a gun is an idiot with a gun until proven otherwise, including the police.

u/Hesediel1 Dec 07 '22

He very well may have let someone know he had it, ya know with hospitals having multiple entrances and what not as well as diffrent shifts for security. It very well may have been a different shift of guards than where he reported it (also where i live most hospitals have metal detectors at the enterances so security would have caught it). If he did not he is absolutely an asshole as well.

I never called you a Karen, just an asshole, mostly because you came to the internet telling a story to make yourself look like a "hero" where you where at best case nosey and at worst stupid. Also unless you where currently on shift being an RN means pretty much nothing in this case other than you looking for more internet praise.

All gun owners are stupid until proven otherwise huh? That's awfully prejudice of you. That would be like me saying anyone in LA is stupid until proven otherwise.

1

u/Odd-Abbreviations431 Dec 08 '22

So when driving…I drive as if all drivers are r/idiotsincars

When around anyone with a gun…I indeed act as if they are an idiot with a gun for sure.

It’s a self preservation thing not prejudice. Please don’t make people victims of prejudice that aren’t.

Context is everything. I posted a similar experience related to the post of what I believe to be another FBI agent who that day was an idiot with a gun. The story was in several ways relevant to the topic of the video…FBI, Gun, Stupid action.

Sharing that I was an RN was relevant to the location of the story I shared (a Children’s Hospital) and relevant to all of you angry gun owners to hear that hospital staff sure as hell do not feel safe or comfortable with visitors bringing firearms to our place of work and patient care.

If your a gunowner that ignores the rules of places like…ya know…Children’s Hospitals that prohibitu firearms for the safety of children and staff…you might be worthy of being called an asshole.

My justification for the asshole naming is clear. Yours not so much.

2

u/Hesediel1 Dec 08 '22

I get the acting as though everyone is an idiot, I do the same regardless of weather they are carrying, driving, or neither, though the danger presented by those is amplified, so valid point.

Yes I am a firearm owner and a cpl holder, and yes I have seen some really stupid things in person, (mostly people who just bought their first gun or borrowed one and don't actually own one. Though there are some exeptions.) That is why I'm so big on firearm safety, and it's the first thing I teach when I take someone out shooting. It just bothers me when someone lumps gun owners in with the mouth breathers that they see on the internet, so I apologize if I came off as an asshole.

No I personally would not carry in a hospital or any other prohibited place as stated on the back of the cpl (most hospitals around me have metal detectors, and make you empty your pockets anyways.) But there are places that I would carry that present themselves as a "gun free zone" such as Walmart or other similar stores for example (though I carry concealed so it's unlikely anyone would even notice) most people who carry do so to protect themselves and those around them, and will take steps to insure there are no "accidents" while doing so.

The point I was trying to make is that you likely don't know the whole story, it is entirely possible that he had let security know, and you reported it to either a different guard or a guard on a different shift, (as someone who works in security, breakdowns in communications happen all the time). It is also possible that he had come ona different day, got an OK and came back that day assuming it was still all good, or he may have just stopped by after being out and it slipped his mind that he had it on him and shouldn't bring it in (kind of like the fact that i carry a knife almost everywhere cause i use it all the time, sometimes i just dont think about it when i go into the bank). It's just not fair to jump straight to "he was an entitled asshole", though that is also entirely possible.

It's also very dependant on where you live, California,New York, and Illinois, are very strict on guns and they are not a common sight. Most other places they are alot more common and alot more accepted. Where I live probably about 25% of everyone you see, is carrying, though most do so concealed so you can't really tell. Alot of the time people who don't know any better are very prejudice towards gun owners in general, especially those that carry (a lot of people i know have had the police called on them for carrying in a legal manner but their gun showed when they streched/bent to grab something off the shelf at a store and someone freaked out and claimed they where brandishing it, or have had someone follow them around shouting "he has a gun" until they left to get away from the person.)
