I have read through all the info on the above blog...:shock:
Looks like Union City has a individual exercising poor judgment running things in the PD. He expects all his officers to force a spotted UOC'er immediately to the ground AT GUN-POINT, cuff & detain, do a background check, weapon check including S/N check, in ALL instances?!?! Looks like he deems probable cause of a crime in progress as simply the mere sight of a firearm in public?
Okay - So I am minding my own business, reading a book (maybe Atlas Shrugged) sitting in front of Peet's Coffee, because Peet's is WAY better than Starbuck's. I have my USP .45 with an empty mag in the well (because I like to keep dust and other crap out of my rig) in the left leg holster (yup - southpaw) and the full mag on my right in the belt holster... I am enjoying my black velvet roast when out of nowhere, WHAM!!! Down I go, hot coffee goes flying, my USP even sustains a scratch. I look up, whilst spitting out dirt and a little coffee, at the dark blue blur staring down at me with a P226 mussel in my face... WTF man? How about a CIVIL "Hi, how are you? May I inspect your weapon under PC-12031e".
But no UCPD! Let's instantly, and without cause, escalate the situation, cause physical harm, violate the constitutional rights of a law-abiding individual, and open the door for criminal and civil actions against the city and the officer(s). Great job Union City! Way to further the "us .vs them" mentality. FAIL
