    Calling the kettle black?: Adjective as in contrary?

    O.K. enough of this sh!% !! What part of LA are you from?. I'm up here in Ventura. Just finished railings and gates for Imperial suits in NH perhaps you may have seen us out there. Big job on-site fab and about 11 tons of steel. Nice facility, rough neighborhood though one guy (finish carpenter) got his entire truck ripped about a month ago and police never found the guys. Anyhow, nice to have a neighbor.

    Tossing the thing thru a car window is a great tool for distraction/diversion ...bottom line is it is a great idea and will save many lives...well as long as you liberals stay out of it and let it be....if the police in your area want it express your issues then...turbo...weld them out and sell them

    I reread your posts and pretty much ended with alot of pessimism from you. Sorry, that's how I see it. There wasn't one polite or constructive comment. Dave Just my Humble Opinion.

I do take issue with your personal attacks calling me and others shallow minded. I nor any other reply that I have read at any time stooped to your level of a personal attack by calling names and making comments that never existed. Now, if you return to the above posts and replies, I think that you may get a better understanding of the authors intent should you read them without bias. With this said I am no longer posting here and don't feel it necessary to defend a frivolous action nor do I feel it appropriate to bandie words and use this forum for any unnecessary dispute.

    Happy welding,

    I don't think you really know much about pricing of law enforcement tools. One part of this tool alone costs $125+. You ever try a center punch on a wire reinforced window like in a school? It's just demonstrating the 100 uses of the tool, showing what you can eliminate with it. Maybe there is one individual tool better for each job but this tool successfully does many many jobs so you can eliminate the tools you carry with you. Dave

    The video shows two guys smashing away at a windshield how is this better than a hammer? They also show them throwing the boot through car door windows. Ever used an automatic center punch? They pop side windows like nothing. They don't weigh 24lbs either and cost about 20 bucks.

    I wish your customers the best of luck, but given the price point and how much other equipment which is equal to or more useful costs, this is a losing product.

    I'm happy you got paid to make 100 of them. You did get paid up front right?

    Once again, mising the ENTIRE concept. ( thought u were done posting) Dave

Don't know just a guess. Using a battering ram or any other device for that matter doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I'd simply block the car/truck, deflate the tires have a cup of coffee perhaps even indulge on some fresh bagels and wait for the putz to come out. Do you know the stats of injured/killed officers that act too aggressively to apprehend a suspect who could have simply just waited? I know that in some incidents where hostages may be a concern is a different issue and in these rare occasions professional judgment must be used to determine if such force is necessary and consequences to the hostages, police etc., should the action fail.

    Little grub for thought..??
