Top cop on open carry

Waco – Sheriff Parnell McNamara thought hard about open constitutional carry of firearms; he answered a remark about people shooting cops and cops shooting people.
I had to be certified by the U.S. Marshal’s Service in 1987. I was hired in 1970, and later I had to be certified; that was in 1987.”
He recalled the opening day of class, how the Justice Department instructor started things off with a bang, how they flashed a macbre picture of the U.S. Marshal for the jurisdiction of South Dakota  – dead – laid on the medical examiner’s slab, his body riddled with bullets, his soul departed, long gone and far away, to a better place.

Grand Juries in 50 states indict Officer Pantaleo

Breathtaking developments in The Big Apple...

"NEW YORK'S VERDICT: WE CAN'T BREATHE!" - headline in a tabloid... It's simple enough, what happened. Eric Garner bought himself some untaxed - that is, packs of tailor-made Carolina cigarettes unstamped by the New York Department of Revenue - from the Mafia, and he was peddling them on the sidewalk in an upscale shopping district of Staten Island - the quietest, almost countrified, borough of the Big Apple. Wrong, wrong. wrong. Someone, probably a merchant, got uptight and let the finest know. They warned the big man. He weighed nearly 400 pounds, all flab and phlegmatic, asthmatic, and arrogant difficulty packed onto a massive and lofty frame, outfitted with an enlarged heart. Then they warned him, again. And again.

Ferguson Cop no-billed

St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch
St. Louis - Citing a legal authority for a law enforcement officer to use deadly force when necessary and the human right of all persons to use deadly force to defend themselves, St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch announced that after an exhaustive 3-month investigation, the Grand Jury returned no true bill of indictment against against Officer Darren Wilson on all of five counts leveled against him.
