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

The 12 jurors and four alternates latched onto what was by far the most riveting testimony as the computer guru's trial finishes its third week here in Alameda County Superior Court.

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

re: Reiser

Big surprise that the cop labels Han's as having "barely restrained aggression."

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.
