OKC officer pulls man over for anti-Obama sign on vehicle


www.enidnews.com

An Oklahoma City police officer wrongly pulled over a man last week and confiscated an anti-President Barack Obama sign the man had on his vehicle.

The officer misinterpreted the sign as threatening, said Capt. Steve McCool, of the Oklahoma City Police Department, and took the sign, which read “Abort Obama, not the unborn.”

Chip Harrison said he was driving to work when a police car followed him for several miles and then signaled for him to pull over.

This is kind of a bizarre story.

It seems more and more LE officials seem to be ignorant of constitutional rights nowadays. And it also seems as if many have WAY too much free time on their hands.

So this guy gets tailed, pulled over, and has his sign, which is "interpreted" by said officer as being "threatening" CONFISCATED, and told that he would be put under investigation, all based on this "official's" interpretation. Then S.S. is called in to investigate him.

I suppose he's lucky he didn't get a visit from DHS. You can just GUESS what they would have labled him...lol

I bet he wouldn't have been pulled over if he was a good little serf and had chosen more wisely in his bumper sticker choice.

that sticker should have read: "Abort Civil Liberties not the unborn"

he just wasn't thinking I guess..

we can all learn from this...
