Scott Fahey, a retired cop, foiled an attempted theft of a tip jar from a Huntington Beach, CA, Starbucks walk-up window in a confrontation with a bike-riding thief recently according to this OC Register story. Two notable things about the incident are: the retired Fahey is 55 years of age, he's walking about armed with a Glock 26. Maybe you could say that Fahey is still, in fact, a cop. On duty and armed at all times. The law enforcement establishment not only includes uniformed cops but also plain clothes operatives, SWAT teams, secret agents of various government entities like public schools. transportation authorities and parks and all those retired from those positions at an age that few private sector employees can emulate. There are a lot of well-armed cops around.
