Same ol' song and dance. Every thread like this gets the same responses, some people applaud the person with the firearm for knowing his rights and
standing up to the officers who want to illegally detain and search someone, and the other people who want to call the person with the firearm names
for knowing his rights and the laws.
I have said it before and i will say it again.
The law is written in a way that not only protects people from other people, but in a way that protects people from the officers.
This person knows his rights, and he is correct about the laws! He was detained without any suspicion of committing a crime, which is illegal.
The cop clams that he doesn't know, and that is reason enough to check up on the person.
What if he had a paper bag? The cops don't know whats in the bag, or if he is legally allowed to have the item in the bag, so would it be ok to stop
a person with a bag and search the bag? NO
Cops are there to follow and enforce laws, they do not get to make up laws as they go, or bend laws to fit their agenda. If the law says you can not
detain someone without reasonable suspicion of a crime being committed, they damn well better have reasonable suspicion before detaining anyone,
otherwise they are BREAKING THE LAW.
More people need to stand up to these types of officers in a logical civilized manner, just like this person did.
