How does this even happen?

I just don't understand how this even happens? This poor man's life is in danger as someone could very easily show up with a gun (or our "right to bear arms AR-15") and not even give him a chance to talk.

I hope Sprint resolves this quickly for the sake of this man and his family.

It would be his right to defend himself with an AR-15 of his own. Perhaps he owns one legally.

probably a default location if the gps doesn't get a lock.

Did anyone read the article?

Dobson said he is grateful that he didn't confront the officers with a weapon.

"I would have been on the losing end, and it would have been because of that issue," he said.

Way to go off topic & troll with the best of them.

If this were happening to me, I would go passive aggressive & FedEx the phone to the CEO's house.

Problem solved!

it has nothing to do with a phone, but probably something to do with Sprints geolocation services.

Of course it would be, because he uses that AR-15 for hunting purposes

that would be a weird place. My T-Mobile phone defaults to Bellevue Washington when I have gps issues. Aka T-Mobile headquarters.

Or any other reason. That's what makes this country great, you don't have to justify a purchase.

I have sprint.

I use waze, a mapping software. After a cold boot, but before a location lock it shows me somewhere on the two lane road. I call it the GPS jail. Sometimes I see other users there.

Come to think of it it may be in Las Vegas.

if sprint does not act fast this guy should start calling the LVPD to haul off people pestering him constantly for trespassing.

But yes I think he would have a legal case against sprint for this. He could certainly get mental anguish dollars. Possibly even lost wages if the results of this screwup are preventing him from getting to work.

A few grand for that lawsuit is better than a wrongful death lawsuit if a person shows up at his door and murders him thinking he has their phone. That kind of lawsuit could cost millions to pay off the family.

Unless of course, said visitor shows up with a bunch of his friends, all bringing more than the arms they were born with.

This is real life and anything is to be expected. One can only prepare as best one can.

"Because I can" is the only reason I need for owning an AR15, AK47, AUG, MP5, Uzi, and other guns that are responsibly tucked away in a vault.

We saw Para norman finally. Think there was a statement in there to the effect we are the police and we are the only ones allowed to shoot civilians.

found quote
"Sheriff Hooper: What do you think you're doing firing at civilians? That is for the police to do! "

Yes, I did. Unfortunately, the statement about the "losing end" is most likely true, but it really shouldn't be. You should be able to be prepared and be able to protect your self in your home. The police should also realize this and take no offense.
