Cops Handcuff Man for Carrying a Walking Stick Thinking It Was a Gun

by | Nov 7, 2022


We should be very grateful to farmers and home builders, because without them we would not have as much food or as many homes. That in no way means we should blindly do whatever farmers and home builders tell us to do. Same goes for any group claiming to provide the service of “safety” or “security”.

The footage below would be qualified as harassment and attempted kidnapping if anyone else did such a thing. The officer claims she thought he might of been carrying a gun. So what? People have a right to own guns. Do we citizens have the right to arrest cops when we see them carrying guns? Surely the history of government atrocities would give us probable cause to do so.

I look forward to the NRA coming to this man’s defense and demanding the firing of these officers.
