So, it stands to reason that if they arrest someone and transport them to the station then, wind up releasing them because they've done nothing wrong, they've infringed on that persons freedom of movement and illegally seized them, opening them up to a lawsuit.I was registering and transfering registration to a friend for a tec 22 today and happened to ask the officer if he has run into anyone open carrying in the grand rapids area... and he said everytime they have they have used their rights to bring that person to the police station just to question them as to why they had a firearm and what need they would have for it.
Now I have talked to different LEOs about this and each has a different opinion some will detain others will just say something along the lines of "maybe it would be better just to get a cpl and conceal it" then let them be on their way.
comments opinions any LEOs?
I honestly don't want to spend 6 hrs in a police station answering questions i dont want to.
I have contemplated a career in different aspects of LE and want to do nothing to jeopardize that or mark me if i do.
Thanks ahead of time
