"We have tasers, batons, mace … stuff like that," Armijo said. "This isn't a TV show. This is life. We don't run in everyday with a gun drawn. Life isn't in a pistol grip. It's how you talk to people. I wasn't the type of person to go, 'I'm a cop now give me my badge and my chip on my shoulder.' That's not me."
To be fair, Armijo was indicted for delinquent child support, though he is under investigation for abusing a K9. But Officer Bernal, who is not a certified officer having never attended the police academy, has a conviction for assault and battery.
Bet that makes the citizens there feel safer.
