    talked to LEO in Lisbon

    So I go to the Johnny Appleseed festival in Lisbon and I see a local LEO so I talk to him about OC I'm from PA and I was curious how they handle OC. He tells me that there is no law against OC but if they see you they will pick you up for carrying and that it's better to CC so I ask if they honor PA LTCF and he gets this look on his face and says " I don't know but it's better if you come from PA to CC". HUH?

    Asking a police officer to interpret the law is about the same as asking your garbageman how best to recycle HDPE. The job of both is just identify, collect and transport.

    I was just making conversation with him when the subject came up we started talking about local high school football team and it morphed into OC.

    I have to purposely remain calm everytime I read or hear such a report.

    Couple things:

    1. I would not ask an LEO for legal advice.

    2. It is illegal for an LEO to detain someone without RAS. So the LEO is either ignorant of the law, or has admitted he would knowing violate the law. If he is ignorant of the law he needs to be educated. If he has no problem violating someone's rights under color of law, it becomes a bigger problem.
