    This is why grammar is important. From the headline it reads like the perpetrator bit the gun, not the officer.

    It should be the police taking a bite out of crime not the other way around.

    Dude, we get it it... you hate police and don't trust them. Give it a rest already.

    Wow, he bit the officer, and tried to take his gun. He's lucky he only got arrested, and not shot.

    Your hatred of law enforcement never ceases to amaze me.

    I have seen this story before, and it does not end well.

    The moral: don't be a j*rk to LEOs. Your life will likely be better. Wow, censorship software blocks the 'j' word. Ha.
