did the best they could do with the training they had. They saw something out of the ordinary and called the cops. What else should they have done? Now he wants criminal charges against his neighbors for doing a good deed? The election officials are not idiots and they don't deserve the name calling. They don't deserve the grief. They are civic minded folks who did the best they could with a goofy situation which was a set up so someone could make a point. The rapidity with which some lawyer comes on the scene after to demand a special prosecutor pretty well suggests there was some forethought to creating a situation.
There is more blame to go on the LEO and those in charge of them than on the election officials, but even so this man made his situation extra difficult through his own actions.
I'm probably gonna go on a couple hundred mile drive tomorrow. I could legally leave my pistol in the center console, and sure
enough get myself stopped for a rolling stop, and get my wife arrested because someone didn't know the law and thought she
needed a license. Ya know, I'm not pushing the buttons to clean up the universe of folks who don't know the law. I just want
to get on down the road to my destination. It will remain in my control on my person even though that isn't strictly necessary under the law. That's not the best analogy, but I'm not in the stunt business.
