    Parking Wars show on TV

    I was watching parking wars on TV IIRC I think it was in Detroit where a vehicle had been booted for outstanding tickets,the owner wasn't happy and tried to kick the boot off and commenting I'll shoot the damn thing off etc.Parking enforcer called for a tow truck and this Individual said I got a CCW ain't nobody taking my vehicle and in plain view removed a holstered handgun from his vehicle and clipped it on his belt which made the tow truck guy call for LEO.They ran the guys info,and afterwards returned his gun and advised him they would be forwarding a report to the gun board.There was definitely IMHO a threat made by this guy and He is the kinda poster child the anti gun crowd loves to see.

    I wish the film crew would have shown the video to the LEO's, methinks the owner would be in a fight to get that weapon back. It was blatant brandishing and communicating a threat in my non-law enforcement opinion.

    Agreed, very much so.

    In fact in MA that is _exactly_ what would have happened, as allowed by state law.
    Further parking enforcement 'officers' are themselves LEOs akin to say park police and game wardens...Only they do not carry a gun nor have the power to arrest.

    This fool acting and making statements as reported in the OP would have then been well enough action to result in MA charges of;
    * Assault (tow truck driver)
    * Assault against a police officer (parking enforcement officer)
    * Witness intimidation (both)
    * Brandishing [Display of any 'weapon' by intent to instill fear, without action toward defense of self or ones home.]

    We as_lawful_ civilian carry persons do not need to be and should not be acting like this.
    You get booted for good reason. Your own fault.
    Swallow the pill like an adult and suffer the consequence of paying what ever fines and fees are associated to same. Act right next time.

    Not on Parking Wars. Operation Repo is all scripted. I know people who are in the Repo business and never have 1/10 of the stuff they say happens.

    Parking wars isn't scripted,they show the day to day stuff parking enforcement officers go through,The guy made a statement Ain't nobody taking my car bI got a CCW license,opened the drivers door and in plain view clipped his uncle mike holster with Taurus semi auto on his belt,If that isn't a threat I don't know what is.I'm betting after the gun board gets the report his CCW will be history.Carrying a firearm for protection doesn't include intimidating public servants in the performance of their legal duties

    Nope, it was a plain white vanilla mini-van. Definitely not going to jail for, and certainly nothing worth pulling a gun for. (Not that anything less than defending your life is...) Here's a link to the show (Episode 51).

    He may have much better luck getting his vehicle back than he does his weapon!

    He's about to get a 'thank you' card from the local gun board..."Thank You for turning in your weapon and permit."

    Too true. The only non-scripted reality show is the first and only true reality show, COPS. Every other reality show is manufactured drama.
