Just an FYI:
I have sent an email to Sgt. Amendola directly, linking and quoting both Hawkins and Ortiz. Once I have received a response, I will post the response along with my original letter, which may be good for taking on Philadelphia down the line.
I would recommend not calling him, as I stated, because the call is being recorded. I had to ask for his direct email address FIVE TIMES before he would give it, he was quite defensive the entire time, and despite telling him once or twice that the email he responded to on open carry was publically posted, he still thought that the email was sent to more than just a recipient, which I had to explain two more times that it was posted on public site that I frequent.
If Amendola doesn't change his tune, then I will send a CMRRR direct to the Sheriff. I have also cc'd Mike on the email I sent to Amendola, and I expect he will have something to say on the whole situation soon.
