    Just a thought, all this trying to educate on a one on one basis is like the two step, one step forward two steps back.Seems like one person on here will get the sheriff in their county educated or find that he/she is good with OC but with every one, there are two that are bull headed and promise to lock you up like a common criminal and throw away the key.

    Has anyone tried educating the Alabamas Sheriffs association(if there is one)or contacting the Alabama law enforcement academy? Seems like that those places would be the bottle neck to start getting their guys educated on the legalities of OC.

    I know that these ORGs do not have the powers to enforce what a sheriff does, but if the young deputies/cops get the knowledge and take it to their departments, it may just filter up to the big brass when they find out the liabilities they could face.

    Another step/idea/concept might be to interface directly with the FOP and try to get word out through that or other organizations like it. I'm certain they have internal newsletters.

    Thanks, Ranger. I sent an email. I warned them that even stopping an OCer merely for OC is unlawful and that the immunity that deputies enjoy could be pierced--allowing not only for requests for specific performance on the part of LEAs, but monetary damages from the deputies!

    I asked the organization to research the law and educate its member sheriffs. I specifically mentioned the Autauga, Coffee, and Houston county sheriffs as potential future problems.

    I think that any future violations of the Fourth Amendment by these departments should result in lawsuits.

    Spoke with my friend in the FOP. I've been told that they only have a national publication.
