Courtroom is the place to argue the law

The Police don't care about interpreting the law. That's a job for the courts. IMHO, His argumentative manner caused the arrest.

IANAL, but express your desire to be on your way e.g. "I'd like to be on my way. Am I being detained?" If the cop answers yes. Ask if you're under arrest. They are likely to say no. If they ask about the rifle, announce you have a CCW and then shut up.

Being argumentative does not help. The cop will escalate. Just quietly ask questions.

Have I caused any harm officer?
What is your name or badge number and department?

When asked for ID, don't point to your pocket. Give them your name.
My name is X. Speaking your name is Identification.

Good job with the not consenting to search.

When you're being detained is no place to tell the cop you will file a civil suit. Especially since you can't afford a defense lawyer now.

It's easy to get heated when your rights are being violated by costumed gang members we're forced to pay for. It may make you feel better at the time, but it doesn't do any good.

We need to have a law that

We need to have a law that fires these police officers for violating 2nd amendment constitutional rights. They are not fit to be our public servants. They can go to work at McDonald's.

I don't care what day and age it is.

That's the only flaw in the Constitution...

there's no penalty for violating it.

Prominent fraudster

Thanks for posting an opposing

view. The writer seems pretty flaky to me. The soldier's behavior with the officers, his legal actions, and his reasoning in the interview, all seem pretty solid. It's odd that the writer claims he's being stalked, but admits he's never met Grisham. The photo looks like he's goofing around, but it's posted like he's a lunatic. That seems pretty weak, and a little yellow, for a journalist. It's like a smear. Why is it convincing to you? I find myself in strong support of the soldier's case against the officers. I think we need educated and good police, making decent salaries. I agree that these cops should be fired, unless there are other circumstances that the video is not revealing. "They don't care about the law, and neither do we," is pretty damning.

In This Day and Age...

There you have it!

He asks that you please take a break from calling the police department, emailing them, and also from doing the same to the city of Temple officials.
