Ignorant Cop Arrests Active Dutry U.S. Soldier for ‘Rudely Displaying’ Weapon

by Charles C. W. Cooke, National Review:

I just got off the phone with Army Master Sergeant C. J. Grisham, a serving American soldier and veteran of the the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, who recently was illegally disarmed by the Temple Police Department while out for a walk with his son.

“We live out in the country in Texas, near Temple,” he told me. “My son and I were on a ten-mile hike so that he could earn his hiking merit badge – it’s the last badge he needs to become an Eagle Scout.” But half way into the hike, Grisham said, “a police officer pulled up.” Initially, he was “cordial” and he “asked what we were doing.” Grisham told him. “Then he looked at my rifle. I carry a rifle any time I walk around because there are feral hogs and cougars and things like that.” 

From here, things took a turn for the worse.

    Oh look, a law enforcement individual that was born an a#%hole and grew bigger. There must be a drug they take in the academy that makes them forget the bill of rights!

    This person is a law biding citizen and doing nothing illegal.However my only criticism of this veteran is his judgement of walking down a road with an AR-15 slung over his shoulder. In this day and age of Government induced paranoia, it’s not wise to ask for trouble. Is he legal in doing what he’s doing? yes he is totally legal, but he now has to endure this whole episode and cancel his time with his son, plus it’s going to cost him finacially to get clear of this mess. He didn’t need the AR to protect against wild hogs, the .45 was plenty enough. There are times when you may be 100% in the right, but discretion is the better part of valor.I feel bad for the two of them for having to be put through the ordeal.

      And if you run into a whole sounder, or a cougar or two? That .45 is only good for close-in and of limited capacity. As well, the AR is the weapon he has the most time behind and is most familiar with–his choice was spot on.

      But that’s beside the point. Induced paranoia or not, fuck the cops. Dude was legal, and those bastards need to start learning to abide by the law. I’ve had run-ins with redneck TX cops–including having one stick a gun to my head because I refused to comply with his illegal directives, and despite having done nothing wrong and being very cooperative and polite up until that point–and I’ve NEVER seen such blatantly corrupt pricks in my life. (I’m talking outright theft of private property, and exchanging sex with hotties for looking the other way–both personally witnessed.) No, since that day, they need to prove themselves to me. And if my legal actions bruise their precious sensibilities, too damn bad. They serve us, not the other way around and need to re-learn that fact of life.

      So, because this is a “day and age of Government induced paranoia,” we should give up our rights. You deserve to be a slave and you probably will become one.
