I am new to posting on here. I do read, but have never posted. I am very interested in the statues concerning the arrest of someone exercising their right to carry. I know that in Texas and Pennsylvania as well as other states there is a criminal charge called official oppression. It states in Texas "
A public servant
acting under color of his office or employment commits an offense if
intentionally denies or impedes another in the
exercise or enjoyment of any right, privilege, power, or immunity,
knowing his conduct is unlawful
It is a crime in Texas and is a class A misdemeanor.
I am wondering if anyone has run across anything like this. I am not looking for
the federal statute that is a civil action and you can only plea for injunctive
relief. I am looking for a Wisconsin statute. This would be something that would
be very positive as a deterent to any officer who may arrest someone. It would mean
that they could be charged criminally. I will continue to search the statutes, but
I figured I would ask just in case someone has already come across one. Thanks and
I look forward to meeting you guys sometime.
