Well earlier today I was at my local Wal-mart. I was wearing my 6" Bootknife, and had my 3 inch Folder on my waist as I always do (In plain sight mind you). Upon exiting the Wal-mart, I was approached by an officer who says and I quote, "Sir,Sir...SIR!, If you could take a step over here with me please,I'm going to need to have a word with you."I asked him why this was happening and he continued to bark orders about how I need to keep my hands where he could see them, place your hands on your head, and the old standbye "Do you have any weapons on you" LOL. I'm on the squadcar at this point, Disarmed, and put into the backseat with cuffs on. sat there for around 10 minutes after my record came back clear with no warrants. The officer said that I was being detained as a precaution.
And that me OC'n my knives, was making people "Nervous". I believe his Chief or something showed up and sent me on my way, he returned my knives and told me that I was "Just Asking" for trouble walking around armed. So I guess all in all I did get my knives back, but was any of that legal?
I mean I was keeping to myself, had a cartfull of groceries, and was clearly not being a threat to anyone, but I still get treated like a criminal. idk, feel free to comment on this fiasco guys...thanks!
