For the LEO.
This is a discussion on Now this is a LEO encounter! within the Open Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Judge for yourself. Does this cop know the law?...
Judge for yourself. Does this cop know the law?
That cop was great!
I thought Jeremy could of eased up a little bit.
Why would he be oc an empty firearm? This happened in Virginia?
That's been making the rounds.
I don't know CA law. However, in Virginia you must identify yourself during a Terry Stop, if asked. No papers required. But full name and identifying information required.
As I understand it from many post on various sites, in CA you can OC empty hand gun and a full mag w/o permit.

Is Jeremy the same guy that posts on opencarry.org and organized all the OC events? Same guy who recorded the cops talking to him in the coffee shop?
I support OC because I do it myself, but when cops are just doing their job I wish Jeremy would loosen up!! Cut the paranoia crap and just cooperate a little bit.
He may be doing it because it's his "right" but it seems like all he is really trying to do is start stuff. He knows how much grief it's going to cause and that's why he carries around a recorder and video camera. stupid stupid stupid.
A+ to the awesome LEO

Jeremy could have loosened up, but he wasn't rude IMHO.
We also know from these various threads that many of the stops are not that pleasant on the part of LEO's.
This cop knew the law and was pretty fair, even if he was prying a bit...he was not intimidated by the camera.
This was a pretty 'neutral' encounter.

Cop gets the cool dude of the year award.
Jeremy, I'm not so sure about.
I know he doesn't need to have papers on him and maybe where he is he doesn't need to identify himself, but given the courtesy he was shown he could have helped things along by extending the same. Just as the officer openly stated his name and badge number, J could have shook hands and identified himself.
Well done officer. Jeremy.... well other people have said it.

This film should be used for officer training seminars.
I wonder if there is an email for the officers department and we all send an Email saying he did a great job.
