    Excerpt:

    I just wanted to take a moment and express my thanks to the Spokane Police Department. I had an encounter with an officer at Riverfront Park yesterday (Thursday, July 5th) that was very encouraging. I was openly carrying my pistol while walking through the park with my wife and two young children. I walked past three uniformed bicycle officers by the carousel. They all saw that I was carrying and one of them made it a point to ride over to me and express his opinion. He said that if there were more people like me around, there would probably be a lot less crime. Then he said it was nice to see a citizen defending themselves. This was by far the best experience I've had while open carrying. He was extremely polite and professional, and it was nice to see some acknowledgement from a law enforcement officer that what I was doing was perfectly legal and that he would like to see more people doing it. I can only hope that if I have any more encounters with SPD that they will be even half as pleasant as this one. I thanked him, but he rode off before I could ask his name. I just wanted him to know that I am glad a man like him is serving my community. Alex Meyer

    Awesome! Of course half the people reading it were probably like "what the hell is open carry?" lol
