    I was standing in front of Bartells which is right next to Blumenthalsl .I was Oc.ing my Witness .45 .I saw a Tansit cop come out of Blumenthals and take a header off the curb next to his car.He looked in pain and wasn't getting up. I ran over to see if he was ok and he said he thought his ankle was broken.

    Now picture this image.There I was Knelt down over a police officer flat on the ground next to his car,carrying a completly visible .45.When another officer was walking in from my strong side.I saw some extreme concern on his face.But just as he was walking toward us I and another fellow that walked uphelped the officer up.He was a hurtin unit.I would be willing to bet he broke his ankle.Anyway the other officer just walked by and didn't say a word.Didn't even ask if everything was ok which surprised me.

    I thought about it later and that that could have looked real bad to another cop walking up and not knowing what was going on.I gave the officer my # incase he needed a witness for a comp claim. Neither one even metioned my weapon.

    You are right it could have looked bad but I think most cops could tell by your demeanor that you weren't any sort of perp but there to help. Kudos on what you did and I hope this sends a positive message to those in your community including the police what we are about.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
