    Good: Gun rights activist acquitted of concealed weapon charge

    From the article:
    Milwaukee Police Officer Cassandra Benitez testified that when she first looked into Sutterfield's car from the passenger side, with a flashlight, she did not notice the 9mm Glock on Sutterfield's hip, despite being extra alert to a possible weapon after seeing an National Rifle Association cap on the backseat.

    Benitez testified that her training told her that presence of NRA gear makes it more likely the person might have a gun.

    Seems like the Milwaukee police department needs to readdress there training of officers, and not just on this issue.

    The cop is an IDIOT!
    From article;
    Benitez testified that her training told her that presence of NRA gear makes it more likely the person might have a gun.



    If I have a sticker with the U.S. Mint logo on it in my window of my car, would she assume I had some money in the car?

    This one obviously needs to go back to reading parking meters.

    If he was pulled over for no other reason than the NRA sticker, she needs to find a new occupation.

    Sounds like another false arrest lawsuit may be forthcoming

    This nutjob cop violated so many state, local, and federal laws in everything that she did. Including direct violation of his 4th amendment rights. She needs JUST CAUSE or REASONABLE SUSPICION that he has just committed a crime, or is in the process of doing so to even contact him. Nevermind a half baked Terry stop for a NRA sticker.

    FYI: The person arrested was female.

    I wonder if her trainer also told her "If there is a Dunkin Donuts hat in the car, it is highly likely there are donuts there?"

    If there is a Dunkin Doughnut sticker on the car there will be a 90% chance that cops are in the car.
    Also, if there is a Milwaukee sticker of any kind on the car, the person inside is begging to be stopped and falsely arrested.

    I got this info from the Milwaukee PD new recruit welcome aboard booklet.

    Waste of time and money, this should have never made it to court. The DA should have dropped the case.
