"So if I call the police on you because I, well lets just say I saw you walking down the street, they should arrive and ask for your papers? "
If they think it might be a public safety issue then yes. I doubt they'd respond just because someone is walking down the street, but if they do I'll show them my ID with no problem. It takes 5 seconds to pull out my wallet and take out my citizen card. Unlike you I'm not retarded enough to spend 5 minutes arguing with a police officer when I can resolve the problem in 5 seconds.

>>>i don't know about where you live. but here cops get away with pulling over old beatup cars becuse they are more likely not to have car insurance. <<<

Perhaps they "get away with it" not because it is legal but because people are not driving around in beat up cars with video cameras looking to get stopped so they can film the cops breaking the law.

>>>>"suspected for illegal possession of a firearm"<<<

but simply having a firearm is no more a reason to suspect illegal possession than driving a car is reason to suspect it was stolen.

>>>Don't be stupid, this was not a random occurance. This douche fabricated a situation where he could confront a cop and try to shame him and make him look the fool. This wasn't a random citizen getting harassed, this was a guy trying to start something for 15 minutes of internet fame. He should be flogged and sent on his way.<<

That's right police never violate the rights of citizens. Move along this guy deserved what ever happens to him.

Or perhaps police should be more knowledgeable with regards to the laws they are enforcing and then this guy would have nothing on tape worth your ire....

There I agree with you. However, there is a need for the proverbial Canary in a coal mine. They may sing to the point of aggravation, but the real trouble starts when they are silent.

>>>Yes, if they think you might commit one. The moment someone fears for their safety and calls the police then it's their job to ascertain everything is ok and ensure everyone's safety. The cop asked something pretty reasonable, if you go to such length to conceal who you are when openly carrying a gun then there's clearly a reason to suspect you.<<<

So if I call the police on you because I, well lets just say I saw you walking down the street, they should arrive and ask for your papers?

And if you are not doing anything wrong it is no big deal right. I mean that's exactly what is done by Israel with their checkpoints in the west bank right. Just checking your papers.

the amount of brainwashed retards in this thread is astounding. look at everyone defending the police (who where in the wrong) and chastising the guy who knew more about the law than the cops harassing him did. Pathetic when you think about it.

Sorry for judging then. It seems that in our countries the police serve different purposes.

@Flashpacker: "DOuchebag. just answer the cops questions. you're carrying a deadly piece of machinery, which in the wrong hands, can lead to a drating tragedy."

at first i thought you were talking about a car, forklift, powertool. something on those lines. and having one "in public 'should' cause suspicion and fear. taze first and ask questions later". i completely agree and hope that they start doing that to everybody! that would turn out swell! again though, talking about anyone "carrying a deadly piece of machinery, which in the wrong hands, can lead to a drating tragedy"

Carrying that gun openly is not illegal, in many places concealing it (or attempting to) would be and would be grounds for suspicion. Were he off to commit a crime, he'd hardly be walking down the road carrying a rifle in plain sight. I can see him now calmly walking into a bank with a rifle slung over his shoulder.

Taking his gun is against the law, particularly as he overtly refused to consent.

Also @Canoas

"Should the police be able to stop you if they do not suspect you of committing a crime? "
Yes, if they think you might commit one.

If they think..? I know a lot of black kids who get stopped for that one.

The police are the enforcement end of the american injustice system. That system is big business here - there is a lot of money to be made - its an enture industry. Its the modern-day version of slavery (yes, you can quote me on that). Legislators make just about everything illegal. The police arrest you for it. If you can't afford bail and a lawyer you go to jail. Almost 1 million people are employed by the prison industry....many many billions/year. And don't forget the free labor of the incarcerated.

Privacy is not a reason for suspicion. I'm sorry you've lived in a monarchy for so long that you do not respect freedom but we do. The dude was in the right and the cop was in the wrong. No ifs, ands or buts about it.

The police ARE NOT there to protect you. THE POLICE DO NOT PROTECT. Their job is to apprehend criminals. They are not your body guards, they are not their to help. They are there to keep you in compliance of the law. This means they also need to know the law.

The correct action would be for the police to IGNORE the caller and inform the caller of the LAW. Maybe observe but do not contact the law abiding citizen.

Also, there's really something wrong with America. You guys don't trust your police at all, it's no wonder they don't trust civilians either. Over here if a cop asks you something reasonable, whether or not the law is on his side, you do it. There's simply no reason not to. His job is to protect you, let him do his job instead of questioning him pointlessly. Who the drat cares if you HAVE to show him your ID or not?

That dude must be really great at parties.

So he'd rather spend 5 mins arguing with the officer instead of showing his ID? Sounds like he's an idiot.
It doesn't matter who's right, the cop is trying to maintain peace and made a pretty reasonable request, what's the harm?

@LegosFTW
I definitely agree, and that was well put, but the problem I have, as i have seen in many police officers, is that when it becomes clear that both the officer and the civilian have an understanding of the situation and, more importantly, the law, the officer still continues to press the situation and ask for ID etc, etc. That is nothing more than an assertion of force, and I believe it deserves condemnation and criticism of the highest level. He could have simply, restrained the weapon, told him the situation, gave his gun back and went about his business. problem solved. if he was a criminal, he sure as drat isn't going to stick around anymore, and if he is a law abiding citizen, the situation is handled without infringing on rights and no respectable gun owner would have a problem with it. but no... he had to press and press... thankfully this guy knew the law better than the officer, which is stupid.

The guy filming was a douche but so was the cop. The police officer should have just observed first. Knowing the law and using the law shouldn't be frowned upon.

While I agree that the man with the gun was doing nothing illegal, and should have been allowed to go about his business, I disagree with how he handled the situation. As a gun owner, you have to acknowledge that you are holding something that can take a life, and while you may be comforted by this, it can make people less comfortable with firearms uneasy. The best thing to do would have been to make the officer aware that you know the law, and that there is nothing wrong with what you're doing, but give him the courtesy of listening to him. Think about the person that made the report, they were obviously uncomfortable with him walking around with a pistol, so they went to the police. What if the cop simply dismissed their concern and kept going? Thats not effective policing. Sometimes you have to address a situation just to make the rest of the public aware that you are "Doing your job", even if its outside of the written law.
