officer

All because the driver wouldn’t say where he was going:

LAPDI’ll say this again…even though I think being a law enforcement officer of any kind has got to be the most frustrating job on earth, the point is you’re a public servant so if you can’t deal with the shitheads as cordially as you can deal with the people you could see yourself hanging out with, then it’s probably time for a new line of work.

Thoughts?  Will this woman lose her badge, or will the incident get swept under the rug?

And backs him down:

I was detained by Portland PD officer J McDonald on 26MAY2012. He detains me without suspicion of any criminal activity in violation of Delaware v Prouse. He admits his sole reason for stopping me is my legally carried firearm in violation of US v DeBerry. He seizes my weapon with no reasonable suspicion that I’ve committed a crime in violation of Terry v Ohio. He demands my ID without reasonable suspicion in violation of Hiibel v Nevada

LOL burn.  That’s exactly what I like to see.  As I always say on the blog… if you can’t handle the laws in the state / country / etc.. that you live in, then move.  That especially goes for those PAID to enforce them.  I am pro Law Enforcement, but the fact is there is only one version of the law they are paid to enforce… so if you are a LEO and you have your own agenda, and that includes trying to trick people into waiving their rights, then please do everyone a favor and find a new career.

Thank god for cameras.

So now what?  The officer in the video violated 4 different laws according to the person taking the video.  Will anything happen?  Should anything happen?

The UK is such an easy target for gun control jokes.

Yikes he’s got a knife though!  Oh well, I’m sure he’s just on his way to a knife surrender bin

His balloon cluster looks dangerously close to being classified as “high capacity” … I hope he counted correctly.

Clip, magazine? ugh… Get it straight.

Left on the plane by a Federal law enforcement officer hey?  Right… I suppose that could have happened, but what also could have happened is that the air tight security they think they have actually has some flaws, which they would never admit.

A retired Los Angeles police officer who sued a gun maker after his 3-year-old son shot him had his lawsuit dismissed Friday by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge.

Enrique Chavez, now 39, of Anaheim, was off-duty when he was shot on July 11, 2006, while driving his Ford Ranger near Harbor Boulevard and La Palma Avenue. His son, who was not in a car seat, got a hold of the father’s .45-caliber Glock while sitting in the back seat and shot him in the back, according to police reports.

Terrible thing to have happen.  I’m sure he thought he’d win the lawsuit… but I’m glad he didn’t, that would have set a terrible precedent that would only further inconvience responsible gun owners like the rest of us.  Last thing I want is more safeties and warnings all over my guns.

Just goes to show how you need to keep your guns secured around kids because things could go bad in a split second.

Santa Maria, CA – Officer Damon Badenell, who is in his early 30s, was responding as backup to the pursuit of a burglary suspect, Flores said.

The patrol car struck the center median and two trees, Flores said, adding that he had no information on how fast Badenell was traveling at the time of the single-vehicle crash.

Badenell, who suffered several broken bones and non-life-threatening injuries, was expected to remain in the hospital for about a week, Flores said.

Wow, I find it hard to believe he was able to walk away from that with some broken bones. I wonder how fast he was going?
