First of all, the woman filed false information. She claimed to have a child with the officer and that the officer was a grave danger to her and the
public. When confronted, she argued that the law is unclear in the terminology "have a child with." (Kind of like Bill Clinton arguing what the word
"is" means.....). Even under the current SPIRIT of the law (setting aside whether it should be constitutional or not), she failed to meet the legal
criteria to even legitimately file such an order.
Second, if an officer ever posed a legitimate threat of violence against a person in these states who have Red Flag laws, it would NOT matter what
their profession was... They don't get a pass simply for being an officer. They would be put on administrative leave or on a desk job (after turning
in their service weapon) while an investigation ensues.
Also do not forget that these Red Flag laws are in Blue states which also means they have predominately Blue judges.... So don't assume that the
"courts have a huge bias towards protecting the blue line at all costs."
