What an idiot.Most cops are not racist,I get tired of people using thier skin color as an excuse for violating the law. Seems like they are the racist.
He was protesting the police, if he hadn't been armed, he'd be dead and they would tell you he was.
You fools believe everything you read? I dont. I once was handing out anti Obama flyers near my childs school. Didnt speak a word just offewred flyers to people coming by. Someone called the cops said I was yelling racial slurs. LOL I never spoke a single word. I refused to stop and they went away and left me. Believe me the cops arent always honest. Just ask an MCSO deputy who pulls BROWN people over because he didnt signal. Yeah right.
This is what is known as a fool. For vwkaferman, you can see why police may have wanted to disarm this person if they were called because he was harrasing passerbys- right. This is a little different then standing and displaying your right to free speech while casually having a gun on your person. You see the difference , right? Remember this name, it will be in the paper again, bet on it.
Yeah, we all know it's not illegal to carry a gun. But when you start acting irrationally around police, and they see you have a gun, things change. His comments about Dorner and bonding out and taking care of the "problem" are irrational statements that make people real nervous, don't you think?
Umm, it's not illegal to possess a gun, even when the cops question you or approach you. He did not brandish it, threaten anyone with it, etc. I think the cops went overboard here, as usual. There are many Youtube video's of people exercising their rights to carry, and having discussions with police without arrest. Look them up.
I can't believe how stupid some people are. When a policeman instructs you to put down your gun, it's not only the smart thing to do, it is the law.
