    OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A federal appeals court says Lincoln police did not have reasonable suspicion to stop and detain [an open carrier}.

    The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals' opinion Tuesday reverses the ruling of a federal judge, who last year dismissed Leroy Duffie's lawsuit against the city of Lincoln and several police officers.

    the appeals court says given Nebraska's law allowing the open-carry of guns, [open carry] could not be construed as a crime . . .

    Well, the cop now knows that the people are aware of this decision and he may very well run into an American Fighting Man willing to do his duty to the fullest.

    So, does he want to go home tonight?

    Update - Amputee to receive $160K in settlement with city over traffic stop

    An amputee injured during a 2011 traffic stop where police unlawfully forced him from his car will receive $160,000 in a lawsuit settlement with the city of Lincoln.

    Leroy Duffie and the city reached the settlement terms March 30.


    "Pastor Duffie is pleased to have the matter behind him," his attorney Jeffry Patterson said last week.
    Another settlement...unfortunate. The lengths a city attorney will go to to shield out of control cops. I'll bettcha a dollar to a dough nut that those cops think they got screwed when their QI got tossed. Even when the facts, their own facts, are presented to them they continue to deny any wrong doing.

    Sorry, if I could edit my posts I would not need to quote my own post to make a correction.
