    Every case that I have ever heard of, that sounded like it would qualify, later turned out to be made up, or the person was involved with some type of criminal activity, or was a case of someone just looking for trouble, which caused the encounter.

    The reason that LE and security personell are excluded is that it is thier job which primarily makes them a target of the criminal element, not random encounters.

    Another point to ponder, if CC is superior to OC in a tactical sense, why do LEOs primarily OC?
    Since there are so few (relatively) people carrying OC, it is reasonable to think that there will be even fewer OC people targeted.

    In case you haven't noticed, many if not most LEO's who are not in a uniform carry concealed. If they're in uniform, they may as well open carry since most people will expect them to be carrying since they are cops.

    What you say isn't as important as what the other person hears

    Hmmmm.... interesting. How do you explain the following, then?

    Armed and Considered Dangerous: A Survey of Felons and Their Firearms (Social Institutions and Social Change) ~ Peter H. Rossi (Author), James Wright (Author)

    Interviewing felony prisoners in ten state correctional systems in 1981, Wright and Rossi found extensive information suggesting that gun control laws have relatively little effect on violent criminals.
    Seventy-four percent agreed with the statement that "One reason burglars avoid houses where people are at home is that they fear being shot during the crime." Thirty-nine percent of the felons had personally decided not to commit a crime because they thought the victim might have a gun, and eight percent said the experience had occurred "many times."
