I'm the first one to back any and all LEO's who do what's right.. but also the first one to have them account for their actions when they step over the line. I would think you would do the same.. but obviously NOT!
What I am against are those LEO's who use their shield and gun to intimidate (either in actuality or figuratively) the general public in to doing something that the Cop knows he/she as a Cop has no right to tell them to do (because what the person is doing is LEGAL), or they arrest the person on a trumped up charge (contempt of cop) because the person wouldn't bow down to their so called authority.
Here's a link Photography is NOT a Crime that shows hundreds and hundreds of real life situations where your Brothers and Sisters in Blue have stepped across the line.
So what's wrong with having them account for their actions? If you're doing nothing wrong, then you have nothing to hide.
Wow! Sorry for the hastel. Here in indiana $140 get you a LIFETIME permit in 12 weeks.
Wow, not sure how I missed the original thread. I know several people from Amelia Courthouse. Sorry you had to go through all that, and commend you for all that y'all had to go through. I'm glad it worked out in the end.
