Threats to CT Police Escalate Following CT Copís Gun Confiscation Comments [snip]

Full title:

Threats to CT Police Escalate Following CT Cop’s Gun Confiscation Comments – Cops Ask Pro-Gun Veteran to Help Cool Things Down

According to Cinque, Officer Joseph Peterson, who made comments in interaction on Facebook while off duty that he would "give my left nut to bang down your door and come for your gun…" has been placed on 24-hour guard due to threats on his life. This information came directly from Police Chief Kevin Halloran.

Mr. Cinque told us that he had a two and a half hour "sit down" with the Branford Police Department on Tuesday. He said that the Branford PD was supposed to come out with an apology for Peterson's comments and wanted Cinque's endorsement of the apology in an attempt to cool things down.

"The first words out of the police chief's mouth… were 'How can you help us with this?'" Cinque said. "They're getting killed over there. They said they can do nothing but deal with this."

Cinque's endorsement would not be automatic. "There are some things here that need to be addressed before I endorse the apology," he said. "Don't make the apology to me. The apology has to be to the residents of Branford and to the citizens of the State of Connecticut."

"If we are looking to tamp this thing down…none of us need violence here," Cinque continued.

"We're winning this thing; we're winning this thing hard here," Cinque said, referring to the efforts to ignore unconstitutional and unlawful legislation that seeks to have citizens register their semi-automatic rifles and high capacity magazines.

"That's the last thing we need," he added, referring to violence.

If anybody tries “kicking down my door”, they are likely to get killed. How is that a “threat”? It’s simply a statement of fact.

In other words someone looked at him funny. All this gets him is paid time off to polish his jackboots.

He hasn’t been fired? No one with this sort of attitude should be policing the public.

Apology is not enough.

"The first words out of the police chief's mouth… were 'How can you help us with this?'" Cinque said...

My answer would have been: Unless you can provide evidence that you, in your capacity as a chief of police, formally and publically OPPOSED the passage of Connecticut's new unconstitutional gun laws PRIOR to their illegal adoption, then there is NOTHING I can or will do to help you.

Not only fired. His certification needs to be revoked. He should never again be entrusted with a means to deprive law abiding citizens of their life. To wit: the carrying of a firearm.

Failing that, sooner or later, he will take someone's life.

The Police can’t fix what the CT legislature broke.

What they CAN do, is make a clear statement that their responsibility to uphold the Constitution trumps the legislature’s UNconstitutional actions.

And therefore, they will NOT participate in any gun confiscation, intended by such a law.

I wonder how often the Branford, CT police department provides 24 hour guards for ‘regular’ people who have received death threats.

It seems to me a tough, highly trained police officer would be much better able to take care of himself following a few threats than, say, a battered wife whose psychotic spouse and his psychotic family have vowed to kill her.

But it’s a safe bet the Branford, CT police department would not provide 24 hour guard for such a woman.

This dirtbag (My apology to dirt & bags out there) needs to just tough it out.

Just imagine what would have happened had Joe/Jane Public made the same comments in a reversed role???

They would at Minimum arrested and charged with “threatening of police office” more likely they would have been “swatted”.

I say NO APOLOGY IS GOOD ENOUGH!!!

This shows what real cowards the cops are when you take away the badge and all the neat tactical toys.

Even worse - paid time off so that he and a couple of his buddies (aka “body guards”) can goof off, play cards, drink beer and polish their jackboots.

The only way to effect change, and leftists use this tool well, is to sue and to get people fired and marginalized. This town and state needs not to stop until one or both are done.

Nothing like a loss of money or job to have organizations change behaviors. Apologies mean NOTHING. Legally or morally, they are just window dressing.

A bunch of things......Peterson is the one who unleashed this maelstrom.

I fully support his *Right* to spout off anything his stupid self likes on facebook, et al.

The fact that he is unable to differentiate the *other* articles of the BOR....is comical.

Neither his kids or wifey should not be subject to *his* idiocy and short-sightedness. So sad....too bad.

Cinque is now a folk-hero......Connecticut gun owners of all stripes are behind him 1000%. You better believe that the state police [Lt. Vance] are taking notice of these events, as well they should.

I'm glad the town of Branford is having to spring for his protection....hit 'em in the pocketbook.

"Threats of violence are not the way to go about things."

I disagree it is the cold reality of violence that has this Police Department's attention, It is the fact that their violence could be returned to them 10, 100, 1000 fold that has brought them to the table. Otherwise they would have simple did just as Peterson boasted.

Keep the gun but put his bullet in his front shirt pocket, and he has to ask the chief if he can load it.

One can hope that wifey is making the maggot's life more miserable now than all the other combined.

Sadly though, many/most dickless bullies manage to snag compliant little things who won't raise a fuss.

Then again, with hope springing eternal, maybe all this will bring her out of that shell and piss her off enough to shoot the bastard herself.

Somehow, it’s not a “threat” when a cop or government agent threatens to kick in your door and steal your property,

but it IS a threat when the citizen says he will defend himself and his property.

Certainly, this may color the decision whether to release Peterson from his job ....that’s the best we can hope for in this maelstrom...once the PTB see the mess he created of his own accord.

You’re right. Now that I’ve had my second cup of coffee, it’s Lexington Square, and the Bridge at Concord. How could I ever forget I could see that bridge from my wife’s hospital room when my daughter was born.

A few questions? Are his friends in the department guarding him with assault rifles? Do they have more than 10 rounds in their magazine? Why do they need this type of fire power against one intruder?

Wow! This really hammers home the sensibility and functionality of the Second Amendment. Thousands of law abiding gun owners, peaceful, yet very insistent this law goes far beyond “infringement”. The state government of Connecticut appears very small. That power is impressive.
