Our latest fatal shooting involved one of the officers calling (code 5 code 3) which is our ZOMG SEND POPO KTHXBAI radio code.
I have had occasion to use it a few times but I haven't.
Last few times we had someone resist pretty good, I just got on the air and said "*radio number*, we're in a fight." Help comes quick here.
When I got rammed by a DUI driver, I said "*radio number, he just rammed me."
Someone brought that up at a shooting I was involved in. I said he should have stopped. They said "what about Garner v. Tennessee."? I told them, " his name ain't Garner and we ain't in Tennessee!"
