I am just concerned that there seems to be a sort of "overconfidence" with some of the posts I've seen on the site. It is hard to determine what kind of tone people are using online, but seems to me like most are implying that they may be willing (in certain situations) to try and "make a statement" by not leaving when asked and saying, "ALL
you can do is get me for trespass."
I think I would rather be safe than sorry and I am even careful about so much as jaywalking when I OC for the simple fact that somewhere along the way if someone is against OC they will make a statement by charging you with all that they can. It would suck to have a felony charge for simply not walking down the street the right way.
Again, I still do not know if this is something that is valid in Michigan, but it does seem like if you are in posession of a firearm during the commission of ANY crime (regardless of how minor) and if the DA / Sheriff / LEO wanted it bad enough he could and would make it stick.
One should always remember that while the "system" is great when it works
it doesn't always work like it should. There seems to be more politics involved¬*with LE in this state (at least in this county - Manistee)¬*than any other I have heard of. I am one who is not willing to take the chance on deing defiant in the trespass situation. Some may be and that is fine.
You have to go with your comfort level. Just like OC is not for everybody, we all play our part. I just wanted to put the advice out there from my point of view.
