That happened a while ago, he was arrested at his home in kahala on an arrest warrant stemming from the arrest in mexico a couple of years ago, and he didn't make it out of mexico with andrew luster, the mexican authorities gave him over to us authorities after they arrested everyone.

cool, rednecks shooting paintball markers as a defense... all we need now is him taking a lolly pop from a baby for the worst paintball media exposure

theres a difference between paintball marker and pepperball marker IMO, the police use the pepperball as a crowd control agent, don't see too much bad exposure from that, I'm sure with a television crew following them around they're not going to do anything retarded to make themselves look bad on the highest rated show on A&E

well one of the main taboo's is that "its a gun" and the police holding it and using it as a defensive/offensive device makes it equivalent in peoples mind to a taser... most parents wont let their kids run around tasering eachother.

to be honest the pepper balls work a lot better than the mace used, for the mace you have to be at a pretty close distance to the suspect, while shotting balls with pepper you can get more distance between you and the individual in question.

most parents wouldn't let their kids run around shooting pellets of paint at each other either. When I see it used in a law enforcement capacity, it tells me that wow that person getting zapped or shot with non lethal force must have done something pretty stupid to elicit that kind of reaction from the law enforcement individual. Hence said person literally brought it on themselves.

you're assuming intelligence in people who have already proven themselves generally unintelligent.

The preview after last weeks show, shows Dog and the guys getting training on proper use of the pepper ball guns. So its not like they have no idea of what they're doing.

It also shows Dog test shooting an ariakon pistol..err i mean pepper ball pistol.


I would much rather police use pepper balls compared to the beanbag shot guns, because at close range, a shot from a properly tuned pepper ball gun will only leave a bruise compared to the bean bag shooty which will probably kill. Same for the rubber bullets.

Also, for those in AZ, the sherrifs dept just used a pepper ball gun to end a stand off situation yesterday with a teenage girl. After she hit a deputy's police vehicle, then drove off and crashed in to a ditch. She then exited the vehicle and started waving a lead pipe or something... so the police eventually hit her with the pepper balls and safely ended the situation.
