The Men Who Sniff at Goats
Maybe...head adjacent? Are you saying being almost out of my peripheral vision and having his aim a foot to one side of me would have allowed someone - alone in a car - to get the drop on even a semi-competent policeman? Because that I definitely disagree with. I don't think that set of circumstances could have ended any other way whether it was aimed right at the perp or just in a slightly safer direction.
Just in my opinion an unnecessary risk.
In your own words sir, You said, you took an unnecessary risk of not telling the officer, you had a gun; and then flashing him your gun. But say his risk of pointing his weapon at you was unnecessary...
When you flashed that gun, the only person that was put at risk, was you. When the officer pointed his gun at you, the only person at risk, was still you. That is exactly how it is supposed to work and the reality of the matter.
