    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    It's pretty much the same regardless of what the reason for the FOIA is. Especially in terms of FOIAing records of police interacting with you.

    Aye, Dean Greenblatt wrote that one for me. Totally forgot to credit him as I was posting in a hurry at the time. Said he didn't mind if I posted it generic fill-in-the-blank format on here. Hope it's helpful!

    It needs to be told on this FOIA thread. It is very important to view the FOIA footage for yourself prior to paying for anything. I'd also specify RAW materials unedited. Remember you could end up paying quite a bit for footage of the street for 40minutes with edited audio with nothing worth a damn on it. You want to know whats out there before you pay for it.

    Here's a cheat sheet for Fairfax County. I'm not sure if this has been posted on here before, but I just saw it today for the first time.

    http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/police/...form121009.pdf

    Edit: Sorry, I was using the search function in the VA Forum and didn't realize that this result was in the Michigan forum.

    Because this silly forum won't let you delete your own posts. I assume he posted, wanted to delete it, but was unable to do so. You cant post 0 characters AND you can't delete your post, even if just 1 minute after posting.

    Great, now you can delete posts, but you still have to look at this ugly friggin white skin for the forum.

    Any chance they added some skin options while I was gone too?

    I know how to delete a post. The old forum had a button to hit if you wanted to watch a thread without posting a comment. This one does not, so if you want to watch a thread like this one without having anything at the time productive to add to the discussion, then a single (.) will do.

    The mods said they would add skins after everybody got used to how things work. By the above conversation, that has not happened yet.
