It’s been quite a while since I posted anything on here. But I feel the need to post something now.

Lately I have had a fair amount of downtime at work, and what that means for us is that we have alot of time to goof of on the internet. Youtube, Facebook and the like. For some reason I keep coming across these videos of people filming law enforcement ‘violating’ their rights and civil liberties.  This in and of itself shouldn’t be cause for concern. After all everything gets videoed nowadays right? Wrong! The problem is these little self righteous punks that actually go out and find ways to intentionally get themselves stopped by law enforcement agents/officers and then have the audacity to complain about it. More notably, people trying to exercise this whole ‘Open Carry’ law that so few states actually have.

To better explain my point here is better stated in a particular video found here:!

During the conversation this douche canoe has with these cops you pretty much find out that he did this completely and intentionally did something to get the attention of police officers and then proceeds to bitch about being ‘detained’ unlawfully. This is pretty much the status quo now as far as police videos go.

I totally agree and am happy that this guy knows his rights and knows the letter of the law far better than most people claiming to be Americans do. I do not, however, agree with what he did in this video. He was completely wrong in every way, and the police did in fact have a reasonable suspicion of illegal activity, as the law states, and were well within the boundaries of the law to stop/detain/question this man. Elaborate on that, you may ask? What he did could be construed as inciting a panic, disturbing the peace or even occupying police resources when they could have been tending to something much much more important.
