    Redondo Beach PD E-Checks on Day after Peruta Decision

    http://www.facebook.com/video/video....26757&comments

    Two of us who were at the South Bay Open Carry regular monthly meet-up at the local Turners went over to the South Bay Galleria Mall across the street for lunch. After having lunch (at CPK ) we walked through the mall for a couple minutes.

    On our way back to Turners we were stopped just as we were stepping off the mall parking lot.

    The officer says that they only did it because the mall pays a lot in taxes.

    After the encounter the officers came over to our table at Turners and talked with everyone else there for a few minutes, performing no further e-checks.

    great job guys

    You did a great job guys. Respectful,firm and knowledgeable while recording everything clearly.Older Sargent knows better than jumping into a pile of civil lawsuit crap without first consulting with his boss. Notice officer #2 does just what the sergeant asks and no more. When the video camera is rolling, LEO's know to become very careful with their actions. The playing field is level ,and it is not your word against theirs anymore.

    I've not ever been "e-checked" or approached by a LEO while carrying but.... What would have been the outcome instead of allowing the "E" check based on the 12031(e) statutes to simply state at the outset that you object to and refuse ANY sort of search or seziure including any search based upon 12031(e), but you will not resist if they insist. this will preserve your rights under the constitution and clearly establish that what is occuring is NOT A CONSENSUAL ENCOUNTER.

    12031(e) IMO is UNCONSTITUTIONAL as it allows the LEO to conduct a search of your property simply because it is legally carried WITHOUT ANY RAS OR PROBABLE CAUSE!

    Even stating that will not make a difference unless you plan on pursuing legal action. Unless someone is willing to bankroll a law suit, you'll probably find most encounters go down like this in CA.

    The statute is the probable cause;

    (e) In order to determine whether or not a firearm is loaded for
    the purpose of enforcing this section, peace officers are authorized
    to examine any firearm carried by anyone on his or her person or in a
    vehicle while in any public place or on any public street in an
    incorporated city or prohibited area of an unincorporated territory.
    Refusal to allow a peace officer to inspect a firearm pursuant to
    this section constitutes probable cause for arrest for violation of
    this section
    .
    If that isnt enough, such a refusal to allow a peace officer to inspect your firearm would probably result in a misdemeanor charge of delaying a peace officer under PC 148. Stating that you object will not deter deputies or officers from doing what they feel is necessary. My objection in my most recent contact, as well as others who have had encounters with police who insisted on inspecting for loaded condition as well as searches for wants on our firearm serial numbers has gone unchallenged in court. Its going to take more than 'refusing consent' or 'objecting' to the search.

    And I don't see how stating the you do not consent but will not resist IS NOT ALLOWING IT TO HAPPEN!

    To go further this is obviously unconstitutional the way it is drafted since it provides and blanket warrant for an illegal search. It's obviously against the 4th Amendment, for instance what if it stated instead that police have the authority to inspect your living room to insure compliance with local fire code and refusal to allow such inspection is probable cause for whatever... Ok so this is a lame example but the principle is the same. Why couldn't judges review without the necessity for a lawsuit, maybe have a different challenge medium that is not too costly for an average citizen to initiate.

    So who is willing to put their money where their mouth is and start a fund for legal challenge of 12031 and 626.9 ?

    Some business that "pays a lot in taxes" gets precedence over citizens' rights???
    They could have told the mall security folks that they took care of the situation, everything was fine, even without committing an unconstitutional search.
    On a completely different tangent, that second cop was kinda cute.

    Couple of things,

    Every cop I have spoken about OC remembers seeing the bulletin and getting a briefing at lineup one day maybe 1-2 years ago but thats it...Almost all of them dont remember what is allowed or not, they remember they can check the weapon, and somehow they can check the serial number, and thats about it... Then they fall back on their training and experience, you are the source of a complaint and are probably breaking the law in some manner otherwise they never would have got a complaint, so they are going to try and get your info to run priors and find something, anything to stick to you.

    Although we may have been thru dozens of E checks, and we study and discuss the laws frequently, almost every officer you encounter this will be their very first E check. And they dont know what to do and stay out of trouble..

    Also they are not used to sheeple exerting their soverign rights and challenging their authority,

    Just like you say, maybe we ought to start an Open Carry Legal Defense Fund that will pool money in an interest bearing account and have it ready to assist in paying for the defense of someone who the members of the foundation considers worthy of such assistance. It is just a thought. But if we really want to challenge this unconstitutional law, someone has to be willing to take it on. We need a good lawyer who is 100% behind Open Carry, so much so that she/he open carries. OCDO boast of 23,525 members. If each gave $10 a month that would come to $235,250 in one month and $2,823,000 in one year. Can you see the potential? Of course, I am a realist and I know that not all members would, or could, contribute on a monthly basis.

    We would need a Treasurer and a Board that would manage the money. No money could be withdrawn without multiple signatures and the approval of a committee that would be in charge of viewing cases.

    It's just a thought!

    "I Can't tell them No. They pay big taxes."

    Just think about that phrase. For a moment.

    I think that sums up the situation in CA entirely.
    Gun control isn't about guns -- it is about control.

    As a security guard who has called the police many times I can tell you that the police usually don't even go over to talk with security afterwards. Each time I have had to approach the police and always get the impression that they are not interested in talking to me. It has gotten to the point now that as long as the suspect leaves my property I'm happy and go on my way.

    What about the taxes I pay? Yea it might not amount to huge sums, but it is a lot to me who barely makes enough to live. The taxes that mall pays is probably a pitance to them.

    I can't even imagine living in such a place where you don't have the basic freedom to carry a loaded firearm. Y'all are welcome to move out of that foreign country and come to Virginia.

    Believe me, they were looking for something to hang on you guys. You guys need to learn that police officers are not there to make your day. It is their job to find out if you are breaking the law and snap the cuffs on you when they do. Learn to keep quiet or else keep talking about the weather.

    Just remember the wind blows from the west. Trends start here and move east. What we are dealing with could easily come to your state.

    Expect anything, assume nothing.

    That bs could NOT come easily to Virginia, trust me. We love freedom in Virginia, and our Governor and AG are very pro 2nd amendment. I can (and have) walked into town hall and most other places, even police stations, fully armed. I have never been hassled for open carrying in Virginia. Ha, the efforts of our attorney general just struck down the mandate of the abortion known as Obamacare. The bs I read about the goings on in Kalifornia make me sick thinking how you get so abused by the damn liberals that run that state.

    I think the days of Commiefornia being a trend-setter state are dead, the PRK is now the prime example of what NOT to do.

    Now, only if we could get liberty loving individuals from all over the country to temporarily move into Nazi Peloski's district we could vote that witch out of office. We kind of need a free state project of sorts.

    I got the sense that the officer wanted to acknowledge that he supported the carrying of guns (in one fashion or another) just at the end of the encounter but recused himself because of the video recording.

    He probably doesn't want to be quoted by us and would also like to avoid looking "soft" or sympathetic on video while in uniform (possibly being seen as representing the entire PD).

    Smart guy, shame that we couldn't hear what was on his mind. But with the earlier "zero crime" comment I've got an idea what he was going to say.

    Jonesy, as stated before, anything can happen. Look at the BS that's getting rammed through on a federal level. They never thought it could happen 80 years ago, but look. Check out the slaughterhouse cases. Abolition? Japanese internment?

    The Weasels in power have learned that big steps end in a backlash. But baby steps... Work just fine. Hopefully the rest of the nation is realizing that CA is the Greece of the US and can't be followed. We used to be the shining star guiding this country. Now... Well, now we're not. No more gold -- all gone. Now it's just blood, sweat, tears and taxes; my-oh-my, so many taxes...
    Gun control isn't about guns -- it is about control.
