One question for Treo, why do you come to this forum with your dim view of it's members?
The rest of the OP is hogwash that seems to me was written to inflame and get into a ******* contest.

I do believe the thread is a "re-creation" of a similar thread earlier in December, and just as that thread was locked, this one should be also. Just my .02.
In Ohio, although the officer knows if we have a ccw permit as soon as he runs the plate. It is mandatory we have to inform them if we have a permit and show them our permit along with our license, whether we are carrying or not.
If I get stopped, I plan on using the word 'sidearm' as in: " I also have my side arm with me, Officer'. It sounds a bit less threatening I think. My biggest concern is the Ohio Highway Patrol as they are the biggest law enforcement group against concealed carry. There have been incidents of agressive OSP officers during stops with CHL carriers, and fortunately nothing has come of them ....yet ....

As far as "aggressive" LEOs go, consent to nothing, but do not physically resist. Always carry a voice recorder (in Ohio). He can be "aggressive" by the side of the road. I'll be aggressive in civil court. We'll see who wins that one.
Ok, im through with this thread. Flame on.

I was arrested for a crime on Ft. Lewis while in the U.S. Army. I was never told exactly what the charges were but I found out in 2002 when I was renewing my security clearence that I had been charged W/ communication of a terrorist threat under SAEDA. I was arrested soley on the word of another soldier in my unit there was no physical evidence whatever.I'm curious why would you have spent years in a military prison? I find that statement very curious, were you military?
Folks, we have $.06, popcorn and Coke or Pepsi, and here's the Proof this is a worthless topic and a waste of digital entertainment capacity:
One of the reasons I continue to frequent this forum is that there are members here who I’ve learned from. Also I do not have a grudge against the police, what I have is a very solid reason for protecting my civil liberties any time I encounter an officer officially. I deal w/ the police on a daily basis ( to be fair it's a weekly basis because I only work it weekends) on my second job and I make certain that my interactions W/ them are courteous and professional at all times.
The main reason I post here is in the hope that my experience can stop someone else from making the same mistake. You don’t have to be a jerk (sorry for the bad word) to the police you simply, politely and firmly assert your rights anytime you interact W/ them.
And as for you h8rs I suspect that some of you are exactly the people I'm talking about. Other wise you wouldn't get so mad.

Seems to me like your signature line may reflect why you have had issues.
In over 40 years I've had numerous encounters with LEO and have treated them with courtesy and respect and I've never once had an issue. I've received tickets and some warnings. Perhaps the only consistent feature of all of your negative experiences has been you. Just consider the possibility....I could be wrong.
