I have my moments, although getting fewer and farther between.

...I believe you level of  wisdom is beyond mine, and I'm man enough to admit it

Confidentially, I think that's only because I'm old enough to be your father. It's a respect issue.  ;) ;D

Truth: I enjoy reading your posts, and your point-of-view as well.

So? The case is closed, I assume, would the every day citizen get the same deal, no further investigation on the matter, no slap on the hand and scorned and placed in time out for a bad boy day?

"Commifornia" rolls off of the tongue better.

Which one "is total BS"? Me? Thoreau? The cop? Or Commifornia?
LOL, Steve I have grown to have a lot of respect for you sense meeting you here at guntoters. And would never say to you "is total BS", to what I was referring to is the crazy laws in Commifornia, and to include, I believe you level of  wisdom is beyond mine, and I'm man enough to admit it

Perhaps a more important issue in this case is that, since they enforce all of the law, just or unjust, the police must hold themselves to a higher moral and legal standard than must the general populace.
The cop in question was not only legally wrong, but morally wrong as well. It is not for a cop to practice civil disobedience. Instead, he must resign from the force first, and only then may he protest.

To which, I agree.

The individual officer, in essence, is a representative for his department just as a member of the military is a representative of not only the branch of service in which he or she serves, but also of the government. Part of my personal oath is to not bring shame on myself, my people, or the uniform that I may wear. That carries though still today although I wear the uniform of a civilian.

When I pen on this forum, I am a representative of this forum - as inconsequential as that may be in the grand scheme of things.  The rules of this forum are such to prevent the forum from falling into a lack of ethics that I have witnessed on other forums, and I try my best to keep that from happening.

When I carry a firearm, I am a representative of all gun owners, and I try my best to keep that in mind when I am out among the English.

Did the officer break the law? No! He has only been accused of breaking the law.  And, until jurisprudence runs its course, we cannot really answer the question if a law has been broken.

At this point, I am going to let this old dog die in peace.
