    Not happy with police conduct...

    http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2012/0...pite-my-permit

    All of the facts aren't out and so far this is a one-sided statement because police haven't spoken yet but if what I think is true, this is pathetic. This man was beat by police after he stated he had a permit to carry. I find this article disturbing and I feel that those cops involved aren't fit to wear the shield... They did a number on this guys face too. Excessive force? I feel like calling upon people with permits to take a trip with me to downtown...

    Here's another article. So far, this sounds like a serious 42 USC § 1983 violation. Additionally, if the facts prove Mr. King's statements, then the officers involved should be criminally charged with felony assault.

    I wish Mr. King a speedy recovery and hope justice is served.

    Where is Al Sharpton on this one? Oh wait, it involves someone legally exercising their 2A rights.... nevermind. "Rev. Al Sharpton is calling for an end to gun possession in African-American communities." http://newsone.com/1616435/al-sharpton-gun-laws/

    Not another story of cops beating an innocent black man ... very surprising story. Likely had zero to do with him having a permit or gun ... just a standard beat-down.

    Blacks should be the ones supporting the 2nd amendment, not saying that only the po po should have guns....

    I always thought that gun control laws = black control laws ... sad it still happens

    and other minorities. Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO.org) haven't forgotten the success of Jews to stand against the Nazis in the (Warsaw?) ghetto...

    Wisconsin supposedly has written into it's new CC/OC laws that the police cant use excessive force against a license holder solely because they are a license holder. sounds kinda vague to me, and i havent figured out who exactly is supposed to handle any complaints, or hand out punishment.

    Exactly who is it that they are allowed to use excessive force on?

    Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.

    William Pitt



    "If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."

    Apparently, anyone who's not a licensee.
    Milwaukee police regularly get away with various forceful crimes... er, um, well, they're not really crimes because they're done by police, but you understand what I mean.

    Most recent cases in the news were strip searches on the street,
    and video (from bystanders' cell phones) of a cop who had someone prone, with another officer apparently sitting on the victims back, hitting the victim twice in the head with his fist, which pounded his head against the pavement.

    6 years ago Sgt Karl Thompson of the Spokane beat Otto Zehm (white, but Downs) to the point he died in hospital a couple days later. He was never charged by Spokane, but the Feds got him...Thompson was finally conviced of use of excessive force 5 years after it happened...the really sick thing is,,,Thompson has still not seen the inside of a prison, and the conviction was over a year ago. (out on appeal)

    Wow! Glad I don't get to the cities often! Then again, some of the LEO's up here aren't much better.

    I need to visit the forum more often!

    This title struck me very funny! Isn't the term "police conduct" just short for "police misconduct"?

    Kinda reminds my of this Futurama line: You know what the worst thing about being a slave is? They make you work all day but they don't pay you or let you go.
    Gun Control:
    Obama-
    “I just want you to know we’re working on it. We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”

    Romney-
    "I would have supported the original assault weapon ban"
    In 2004, Gov. Romney signed a firearms reform bill that made permanent the ban on assault weapons and steeply increased fees on gun owners by 400%

    Gary Johnson-
    "I don't believe there should be any restrictions when it comes to firearms. None."
    "If you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns."
