Black Helicopter stuff???? Had you read the interdepartmental emails? They are watching us and waiting to make a strong example. Read the forums and then comment.
greg, he wasnt stopped by a curious LEO. he was stopped by a LEO that had full knowledge of the situation, whobad_ace was, and what P.C.s he could potentialy charge him with.
you say that bad ace looked like a teacher scoulding a student, how many times has that situation been reversed? as i mentioned inan above post, the cops have a game they play with every encounter, if you know how to play too, you can grab ahold of the situation like bad ace did. LEO try to talk TO
you while making it seem that they are talking WITH
you, thats why the LEO said "you are free to go but i have a couple of questions for you". what bad ace did was turn the situation around, bad_ace was able to talk to
the leo instead of being talked at
there was a perfect example of this last night while i was at starbucks. an older gentleman aproached 4 cops that were standing around thier cruisers drinking coffee and asked he could speak to one of them. one officer approached, the man was pretty loud (i was 40-50 ft away) he said something along the lines of "can you please help me, my wife has tried to commit suicide twice, shes in the hospital right now, my children are very upset, i dont know what to do!" the one cop called the 3 others over, first thing the cop says "can i have some ID", next they run his ID in the radio, then search his car. this old man was asking for help from someone he clearlythought he could trust, instead he found himself surrounded by cops who were there to gofishing to find out what the man was doing wrong.
