911 to Lady Reporting Man for Open Carry: “It’s Not Illegal to Open Carry.” Cops Arrest Him Anyway - 911 tape releasedSubmitted by RandySea on Fri, 01/03/2014 - 13:59
The 911 call which led to the arrest of a Michigan man who was exercising his right to open carry is a perfect example of how the American people have been conditioned to fear guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens.
Last March, a Grand Rapids officer confronted 28-year-old Johann Deffert as he walked down Michigan Street with a pistol strapped to his leg. The officer forced Deffert to the ground at gunpoint, handcuffed him, then secured his pistol as he ran his name through the database.
To the officer’s dismay, Deffert’s record came up clean. As a result, Deffert filed a federal lawsuit against Grand Rapids Police claiming they “violated his constitutional rights, assaulted him and falsely imprisoned him,” according to Michigan Live.
The 911 recording is in the article.
