Chance encounter with Police restores faith in them regarding Martial LawSubmitted by emptyeternity on Wed, 04/18/2012 - 12:54
So I come outa the coffee shop and see Police surrounding my car, I am thinking "OK here it comes".
Turns out I had overdue parking tickets and they wanted to tow my ass. The cop was nice enough to allow me time to run to a nearby ATM and get the money while he holds the tow-truck which is waiting to hook up. After I got the cash he escorted me to the police department to pay the fines.
As he was walking me in he had asked if I was part of the Ron Paul campaign or just a huge supporter, I have huge signsbon my car and multiple bumper stickers. I replied that I was grass roots supporter. I asked if he was a fan of Ron Paul and he said yes. I then asked if he was an oathkeeper and he looked at me and under hushed tones said "I know who they are", as he looked at other cops around, "and I support their idea. I will not enforce such commands nor will others I have talked to", referring to fellow cops who have discussed it which was emphasized to mean this is a very common conversation topic with law enforcement (wonder about how the military feels?). But that he couldn't publically support them as a law enforcer.
I told him how scary its getting with the government and he said to me, "let me put it to you this way, I wear this badge 40 hours a week. All the rest of the hours I am no different than you, we have the same concerns"
He shook my hand and walked away, and my faith in my countrymen, the police and military was restored, even just a little was comforting to know. I even expressed that to him.
