Staying in line with your perspective, anything can be used as a weapon.
One thing I do agree with you about -> both things could be used as a weapon. So what couldn't be used as a weapon?
Let's just list a few obvious things that can be used as a weapon: a walking cane (may be a different design than we normally see, but this is what
was in the video too; even if you don't agree he was using the putter as a cane, a cane still could be used as a weapon), a walker (much bigger and
could cause even more damage), a writing Pen, a bicycle (crash), skateboard (smack), roller blades (ever been kicked by a pair of these?), jewelry
(rings could act like brass knuckles, choke chain with a necklace, pokie pokie with the back of earrings). Point is ANYTHING CAN BE A WEAPON.
This does not give the police the authority to come arbitrarily start demanding that you drop all of these legal items; I'm glad you brought up the
gun because that too would be illegal for them to just pull a gun on you and demand you drop it (like you said it's legal and the cop would need a
reason to do so). This has been fought and proven in court numerous times especially recently.
It also does not authorize the police officer to my claims that he was swinging it at her when he didn't even lift it off the ground.
The thing is, you don't sway to bullies because it would prevent an argument, or because it may anger the trigger happy bully to the point of
shooting you.....Unless you are too scared to stand up for your freedom to exist within the law peacefully.
1 man's solution is to say "no I will not give you my lunch money"....
While you search for an 'auto-pay' option....
