I OC when I am working in Midland. Also, a police officer should NEVER get a complaint about OCing, since there is nothing wrong with it, and it isn't illegal.
I asked a sheriff patrol friend of mine and he said he hasn't had one complaint about people ocing around here.Â* I don't know if that's because nobody cares or because not many people do it?Â* Â*Â*
Also, not to split hairs but you were not issued a CCW, but a CPL.
Also, a glock 22 for CC? where do you put that thing!
And you stated you know your rights, however, you need to be absolutely sure you know your rights inside and out, how to deal with LEO's, and how not to let them talk you in to a crime. Get a voice recorder, and such.
I read, memorized, and recited wash rinse repeat, 3 times a day for two weeks before I OCed. I watched negative encounter videos to know what I could possibly be dealing with.
Someone once said, it is sad that we as users of our rights need to be better versed in the law than the people who are supposed to enforce the laws to exercise our rights.
Ignorance of the law, for us as citizens is "no excuse" however, apparently in my experience, ignorance of the law for the people we hire to enforce them is an excuse.
Just know what you could experience, know how to deal with it, and know when to shut up!
Pretty sure there have been some OC cookouts in Bay City, but I don't know for sure, however, it is legal in Midland or Bay City or wherever in Michigan you are! Just get comfortable with dealing with interactions from the public and LEO's and you'll be all set. Good luck.
