    How it should be!

    So I was taking a walk down to the local gas station at about 10pm.

    I'm a night owl.

    As I'm walking, I notice that there are two-man teams of Richland PD doing foot patrols. A LOT of them. They're looking for someone, and looking hard.

    So I keep walking, and you guessed it... I got terry stopped.

    The officer straight up told me, "Sorry, but I have to stop you, otherwise I'd get chewed out because we're looking for someone."

    The officer was really polite, and the only question he asked me about my .40 was, "You're not a felon, right?"

    Haha, last time I checked, no.

    [EDIT=Thought about it after the fact. This probably belongs in the "Eastern WA OC Thread." Sorry in advance.]

The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." -John Stuart Mill

    Sounds cool to me. They were looking for someone. His supervisor expected him to make contact with everyone he saw. He made civil contact with you and moved on. 'Nuff said!

    I think maybe not

    Were you in the area they were looking for the "person"?
    Did you match the description of the "person"?
    Did he expect a felon to answer "Yeah, I'm a felon"
    Did he run any info on you, or your gun?

    You'd be surprised. During the multiple ride-a-longs I have gone on, most people admitted all of their charges, to their knowledge, when asked. One man was speeding 52 in a 35. When asked for his license, his response was "Well to be honest, I am pretty sure it's suspended."

    Officer - "You're pretty sure?"

    Guy - "Yeah, it is suspended"

    The cop was obviously just checking the box and you weren't a person of interest...IMHO
