The Best Hate Crime Legislation is a Gun - But Cops Prefer People DisarmedSubmitted by Allison Bricker on Thu, 12/12/2013 - 02:50
Mr. James Sorenson attended the 2012 Gay Pride Parade in Colorado Springs, Colorado while openly carrying his weapon in a holster. The police bristle at the notion of a "peasant" carrying a gun as a challenge to their authority and first harass/detain, and ultimately arrest him.
Fortunately Mr. Sorensen's partner filmed the entire incident, which include the cops threatening to taze him for non-compliance followed by a verbal threat to "Kick the sh--" out of him if does not respect their authority.
Mr. Sorenson just settled with the city police department who was found to have violated the LAW.
