Wow, Now those were COPS( the serve and protect kind!)Sounds like he did a great job standing up for his rights and presented carrying in a positive light.Good for your friend!!!! Congrats in advancing the cause..
And thanks to the elderly gentleman for putting the question up for clarification.
I have been telling you guys our Police Officers are the good kind out here.
In my dealings with cops there are good and bad ones. These cops rock and I'd buy them some cold suds if I met them.
We've been all through that here in Pahrump and one guy in particular has pushed it. At McDonald's he was eating when a Deputy told him to stand up - he refused. The young Deputy then asked for ID and this guy refused - he's on private property doing nothing wrong! At this point the Deputy puts his hand on his gun and the OC'er stood up and said "If you want to play let's play" and it's said he'd of killed that Deputy. The kid turned white, left and called his boss who told him to back off and leave the guy alone.
So the same guy then carries into the Library - cops get called and who responds but the same young Deputy. He shits, calls his boss who calls the DA and they all meet there without confronting the OC'er. Because of this guy it was decided we can carry openly at the PO and LIbrary and concealed at the DMV. Sweet.
Truely fine peace officers indeed and a big congrats to them. Im not sure officers even in our area would respond THAT well and in the KC (our nearest city of comperable size) I think I would question the credibility of a story of an encounter involving carry (open or concealed) with multiple officers that went that well ESPECIALY if the individual didnt have a senator on speed dial who would actualy take their call in person and speak with the officers on their behalf.
I know last time I was there I was takeing my step daughter to get her things from the apartment she had shared with her babies dad untill he beat her up. We called for an officer escort and when meat up with them, though not required by law here, I informed them I had my permit and was carrying but would secure it in a locked compartment of the camper on my truck. At that point they decided they wanted to search each of us and for THEM to hold onto the firearms untill we were done with the escort. Seemed pretty stupid to me given I had volunteered the info that I was carrying and had stated that was going to secure them locked up that they felt the need to hold them let alone search us. Its kind of like if was going to shoot the idiot then wouldnt have been going out of my way to have police there to watch and wouldnt tell them I had 1 and wanted to disarm and secure it if was going to try to hide others. Unfortunatly, in the city at least, I cant say that it was unexpected. Oh then they tried to rattle our cages by claiming that niether my nor Tinas permits showed in their systems even though they had them in their hands looking at them and after they ran them a few times and I let them know the names of a few of the deputies in our county who processed them and who they could contact if they needed confirmation.
I live in a different America.
I am treated with courtesy and respect from the Police Dept where ever I have been out west.
I am usually treated by them exactly the way I treat them.
I have never been searched unless I was arrested.
Every time i get pulled over I tell them " Sir I am not trying threaten you or alarm you, But I have a loaded hand gun in my car" they usually ask me where it is located and I tell them, end of gun conversation, On to business as usual.
I sure would like to know what the library's response to this punk-down is......
Sadly, I doubt they'll ever even realize why their actions were wrong..... or that they asked the only guy in the building willing and able to protect their sorry lives from an actual threat to leave.
"We can't have this. Those officers who didn't arrest that young man should be fired. The young man should be jailed because we all know he was breaking the law." Oh wait, stupid librarian, he wasn't. Hahaha. Now let me point out that this is the end of our educational system. How so? Shouldn't this particular guy, The Librarian, have known about the true law? It is their living dealing with books and helping people find information. It just goes to show that even in the halls of such knowledge, there are idiots. I guess they get paid just to shuffle the books around, not read them.
Glad to hear this was a positive action and didn't turn badly. Here in Frisco, I can imagine what would have happened. It rattles the nerves to find out such ways exist in America.
