“Texas Police Dept. Provides Statement to TheBlaze on Vet Arrested After ‘Rudely Displaying’ Rifle (Plus, a Texas Firearms Attorney Weighs In)”

Official statement: noneya.

Well, okay. That’s a paraphrase.

  1. the county attorney is named Jim Nichols is what the internet says

    Jim Nichols needs to get off his podunk coward ass and stand up for America against the fascist doughnut piggy boys running roughshod all over his county

    here is his contact info

  2. So they “release a statement” to say they aren’t going to say anything? And then the news reports on such things?

    Boy, they are really struggling to fill up the 24-hour news cycle.

  3. Boy, they are really struggling to fill up the 24-hour news cycle.

    Can you blame them, after such a slow week?

  4. Sounds like they are clamming up post legal advice.

  5. That would be my take, palaeomerus. It remains to be seen whether they throw Officer Ubergruppenfuehrer to the wolves or double-down on stupidity.

  6. Resisting Arrest. The go to charge when a cop doesn’t have squat or the DA wants to pile on charges so you’ll take a plea and let him off the hook.

    Resisting Arrest has practically NO objective standards. It’s all in how the cop FEELS about how you’re acting. You could look cross eyed at him and be considered “resisting arrest”. Or threatening. (which in this case, I’m surprised they didn’t charge him with that too.)

    Hope this soldier can keep from being tempted by a plea bargain so it goes to court.

    BTW. I appreciate those LE that do their jobs without animus or aggression. Many face a daily onslaught of stupidity and criminality. That said however, there are way too many cops who operate on the edge all the time and any resistance at surrender and passive acceptance of any insults or aggression by the cops is met with indignant and righteous assault almost instantly by these kind of cops. It doesn’t matter if your response is the result of them miscommunicating to you what they’re about or by them misinterpreting something you’ve done or said. YOU ARE A PERP and will be treated accordingly.

    It’s the old Hammer looking for a nail thing. Too many in LE shouldn’t be there.

  7. Actually, feets, the prime douchebag in that office is an assistant / deputy DA named Ken Kalafut (I’m guessing Amish) who has been making a career out of crap like this for a while.

  8. Those assistant DAs sure are an eager bunch, aren’t they?

  9. Especially when they’re an affirmative action hire with the EEOC and Al Sharpton and probably the First Wookie on speed-dial, yeah.
