Police Officer to Nina Reiser: 'Get Yourself a Gun'

Filed under
Reiser

An Oakland police officer testified at Hans Reiser's murder trial Thursday that he advised Nina Reiser, the wife of the popular Linux programmer, to "get yourself a gun" to protect herself from the man she was divorcing.

"I told her one day, you need to get yourself a gun," the officer testified

"That man used to loom over her, to glare at her," the officer testified.

According to "Taser Daily", that's 99.999999% of all people a cop will encounter (irregardless of age, sex, wheelchair status, etc.)

//I label all cops as having barely restrained stupidity.
