Did anyone notice if the penalties for LEO harassment of legal carriers was still in the new bill?

The purpose of fighting is to win,
there is no victory in defense.
The sword is more important than the shield,
and skill is more important than either.
The final weapon is the brain,
all else is supplemental.
it would be positive to me if the penalties were assessed directly against the cop, not the tax paying citizens, and not require being dragged through a court to get justice. also, i'd like to see some real penalties, not just "baliff........whack his pee-pee.'
Heck, if they'd even do that much it'd be an improvement!
Esp. if we could get justice without the expense of a lawyer & hassle of court.
And I think the way the bill is (was?) written, if carriers are treated differently from sheep then it's an infraction.
So carry those recorders, boys & girls, then do FOIA requests to see how other people in similar situations have been treated.
Betcha they didn't get hauled out of their car at gunpoint by 6 cops for running a stop sign.

(ar) Any law enforcement officer who uses excessive force based solely on an individual's status as a licensee may be fined not ore than $500 or sentenced to a term of imprisonment of not more than 30 days or both. The application of the criminal penalty under this paragraph does not preclude the application of any other civil or criminal remedy.
The KEY words here are
This does'nt mean you still will not be "asked friendly questions" OR cited for disorderly conduct OR anything worse.
