So I get off work today and make my way to a local subway to meet my girlfriend for dinner.I walk in with my taurus 24/7 g2 .40 cal on my waste band (open carried in blackhawk holster with extra mag pouch) and after goin to the restroom I sit down at a table reading a sig sauer catalog to try to educate myself on the hype of sig sauer weapons.
So I'm sitting there minding my own business (reading the sig sauer catalog) and out of nowhere a subway employee comes and asks me if I'm a cop? I say no then try to go about my business.he then proceeds to ask me if I have a cpl?(wa state is an open carry state,but I also do have a cpl.but I wasn't concealing) so I tell him hey that's my business and I am not required to answer those types of questions to him. So he asks me to conceal it and I again told him I am not required to do that either.he then tells me he is goin to get some one of higher power to come deal with me. I say please do.
No more than 15 minutes an officer in uniform shows up asking me about I.D. and I proceed to tell him hey, have I broken any laws?am I being detained?have I done anything criminal?he of course says no to all asked questions, and proceeds to tell me I'm free to go so I get up, and get in line with my girlfriend to order my food.he then proceeds to harass me and telling me I need to get my food and leave. I just ignore him and go about my business. As I get to the cashier and pay for my food I ask one of the subway employees for the number to the manager, and then I ask the officer for his name and a business card. After calling me an ******* and telling me to get away from him and not to talk to him he tells me no and to leave him alone.so I do.
As of tomorrow I will be contacting his superior and filing a harassment complaint against the officer.
