    Detained For Open Carry
    "I was detained by Portland PD officer J McDonald on 26MAY2012. He detains me without suspicion of any criminal activity in violation of Delaware v Prouse. He admits his sole reason for stopping me is my legally carried firearm in violation of US v DeBerry. He seizes my weapon with no reasonable suspicion that I've committed a crime in violation of Terry v Ohio. He demands my ID without reasonable suspicion in violation of Hiibel v Nevada"

    I don't know if it's me or not but he just sounds like he did all that on purpose...

    Knowledge is power, this would be the only reason I'd ever study law.

    I doubt 90% (and possibly a higher percentage) of people know their full rights.

    Yeah, obviously his intent was to bait a cop, create this situation, and get famous for 15 seconds on the internetz. I mean, really.. He cites all these CCW related court cases throughout the ordeal. It's obvious he did his homework ahead of time. YouTube is full of these types of videos.

    As for the cops.. I don't think they tried hard enough. They could have easily arrested him for something. No matter, I guess. That guy is on a special list now. icon_lol.gif

    Of course he did. That's how laws are changed.

    I don't care if he was intending to have this happen. Good for him. The officers obviously needed some education.

    I'd love to learn my Full Rights; though I'm in no rush to carry a hand gun; sure would be good to know how to shoot one, or self defense.icon_confused.gif
