    josiewales - if you have a link to the video that doesn't go through a spam site (youtube video for example), you can edit your post to include it.

    Yeah, I'd rather just CC.

    Also, that guy is technically correct about pretty much everything, but he is being a jackass. You can rattle off all that without the attitude.

    The Police Officer needs to be commended on his handling of the Law Student
    In my book the Law Student is not very bright.

    I have a feeling you guys would be upset to if you got stopped, you're firearm taken from you, all for doing something LEGAL!

    If i'm not mistaken. That video has been posted on here a while back.
    And it was disscussed that that nitwit purpously created that scenerio
    so he could 'pound his own chest'.( why else the camera?)
    Policemen just don't need that extra aggravation.
    Carried concealed if your gonna carry.

    I figgured that if asked you must id yourself to law enforcement(?)

    Something tells me that that fool is turn out to be a democrat later on in life
    just so he can force his knowledge of the law on others.

    And, i disagree with that. Especialy in todays world.
    Comply with the Officer. id yourself, ease his mind and then both go on your way.

    I'm not one of those guys. The public has a right to be safe and protected also.
    I would comply and clear up any doubts.
    But then i wouldn't be carrying like that to begin with.

    I would be annoyed if I got stopped just for open carrying, but not as much if they got calls about it. They're doing their job. Even if I was annoyed, I wouldn't immediately jump in with a camera and an attitude.

    OC has been legal in ME since forever....

    Portland, ME cops have a very bad rep. Many excessive force investigations...

    I think the entire event was a set up by the law student guy...

    But my hats off to him for teaching the police officer what the law is.

    Just a simple case of butting heads. The guy open-carrying wanted something and the cops wanted something else. In the end would the outcome have been any different if the guy had simply complied? No. It probably would have saved some time if he'd have just let the cop run his license. But alas, he was trying to prove a point, which is certainly within his rights.

    The thing is, neither party is really wrong. The police have an obligation to answer calls about people carrying firearms, while they're there it certainly makes sense for them to talk to the guy carrying it just to get a handle on the situation, as long as it does not obstruct that individual. In the end this all would have been avoided if people would learn what is legal and what is not before calling the police about it.

    If you have a right you must practice this right. PA may require a permit to do this, but other parts of the country still has freedom.

    You figured wrong.

    The women and children! Come on. He was carrying a gun in a legal manner. The cop needed the education.

    The part that got me was "It's is common practice". And the student is correct. Common practice does not supecede legality. But my hats off to the officer. He handled that well.

    Instead, why did the guy not just introduce himself, offer his ID, and then make a positive interaction with the officer?

    Was the officer justified? I think he was since there had been calls made to investigate the situation. But also, the officer should have recognized that if there was no aggression when he approached the student, that the calls were more than likely unfounded fear. BUT, what would have happened had he not investigated, and that student had walked in a coffee shop and unloaded on the patrons? Can you say lawsuit?

    This is exactly why I always make friends with LEO's. They stop me once for whatever reason. I almost never get stopped again by that officer. And if I do, it turns into a social situation as soon as they recognize its me. Not a detainment.

    When I was 18 had some guys from another town try to start a fight with our town. The cops got called. When they showed up, I instantly knew one of the officers. They walked straight to me and I to them and told them what happened. Our group was let go (over 75 of us) and the guys from the other town (about 15) weren't so lucky. The officer that i knew told our group "If he (me) wasn't here, you would all be getting tickets for unlawful gathering. So you might want to thank him."

    When you have a positive interaction with LE, they remember it. They deal with so much negativity from people that they really appreciate positive interaction.

    The law is a 2 way street or a double edged sword. The guy handled the officer good enough, a little snippy but OK.

    Someone posted above that they should just comply to ease their mind....well that may be politically correct but not entirely lawful, on the LEs behalf.

    Question though, does anyone OC and not have a video camera or super phone?
