    I was told that the Norfolk PD now teaches it's new recruits about open carry.

    The funny part is, they are using my picture and are given specific instructions that if they receive a "man with a gun" call and it's me, that they are to ask a supervisor before approaching me.

    Does anyone else know of this?

    Yeah.. I know of it.. except you are wrong. If they get a "man with a gun call".. they know it is me.. If they get a "BLACK MAN WITH A GUN" call.. THEN they know it's YOU!!!



    P.S. Nice meeting you at the picnic.

    Dan,

    This smells of a 14th amendment violation waiting to happen. Anybody else can get arrested on bogus charges, but the Norfolk PD now seems to be discriminating against your civil right to sue them for being doofuses.

    Probably need to petition for an injunction against their discrimination or get a writ of mandamus forcing them to let you sue them just like everybody else.

    BTW, since I suggested it, I claim a 10% "finder's fee" on all money you collect. :celebrate

    stay safe.

    They could make a "Monty Python" like training film. Danbus is minding his own business when Norfolk cops falsely arrest him. Then a huge lawyer's foot in a Gucci loafer comes down and crushes the cops.

    I'll bet they are using Chet's picture too! If they see him they are probably instructed to RUN!!!!!

    Give the NPD a call and ask how to get a copy of their training lecture. Even better yet ask if you could sit in on that lecture.

    Yeah! People can go on police ride-alongs...why not sit-alongs? Maybe Danbus could go to the training sessions and stand up for the recruits after his picture is shown so they can talk with him directly and let him answer any questions they might have.

    Field training officer. He can teach the recruits.

    And I mean this in a good sort of way of course.
    If they hired him, they would probablyban him from carrying while on duty.

    Dan, I am printing out the color pic, enlarging it a little to fully cover my face, cut it out and put one of those elastic bands on it to cover my face so that I won't have any problems when I goto Norfolk. Thanks for the laugh.

    What this tells me, if true,is that they are willing to let officers potentially violate everybody elses' (OC'ers) rights; but they are going to be damn careful if its Danbus.

    "Ultra-sensitive. This guy knows his law cold. Do not approach. We do not trust that you won't make a mistake and get us all in hot water. However, lots of others may not know the law so well, so go ahead."

    Or, perhaps, they do not want to take a chance on an officer doing anythingillegal that, when viewed in light of previous encounters, can possibly be called harassment against Danbus. Meaning, they're more concerned about harassment against Danbus but not the rest of us, and mainly because Danbus has enough info stacked up to make it hurt.

    What they really need to do is something along the lines of what was reported through the grapevine some time back about a NoVA police agency. I can't recall which one, but the word was supposedly that officers were told, "Don't mess with the OC'ers. They know the law better than you do."
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    Danbus, great job!

    I think our goal is to get ALL the Virginia law-enforcement agencies to adopt that policy. God knows it's true for the Richmond PD.
