"A female investigator showed up to the scene. "
"5 minutes later, that same officer came up to me and started to apologize.. that's when it hit me, I was about to get cuffed.
The Officer told me how he knew I was in the right, but he has to follow his orders. He tried to reassure me, but his words couldn't make those cuffs feel any better."
"$2,000, 2 months, and 2 court hearings later, the case gets dismissed. But this liberal investigator still wants to keep my guns."
'The three take aways from this story are this.
1. There are officers on the command staff of police departments who don't like the rights granted to you by the constitution, and are willing to use the power of the state to try to take them from you.
2. The rank and file of these departments WILL follow the orders of their superiors to take your rights away because they will not risk their career and pension. Remember that with all the talk about 2nd amendment sanctuary states and counties. In the end they will follow orders.
3. If you are a nobody or don't have the money to fight back you will be thrown in prison and forgotten about.
"In alcohol's defense, I've done some pretty dumb shit while completely sober too"!
I missed something here. What were you charged with and consequently detained for?
I have taken a number of tactics and training classes from our County Sheriffs Office, one of which was "How to keep from going to jail."
The head instructor said exactly those two things, plus one other - tell them you do not wish to say anything without your lawyer present.
There was more involved, the class was an hour long, but those were the 3 big things.
These were the cops themselves saying this. Sitting right next to me was the Under Sheriff, who later went on to be Sheriff.
