ABC News Covers Open Carry in Livermore CA. Captures Illegal Detainment and Search

A Livermore man was giving an interview to local ABC news station in the San Francisco Bay Area about Open Carry when multiple officers from Livermore PD came “in response to a 911 call” about a man with a gun (MWAG). They proceeded to over react with a show of force and illegally search the man and detain.

The Penal Code that the officers invoke to do the search is PC12031(e) and it is Constitutionally invalid and illegal. It will be challenged soon. A person can not be stopped and harassed by police while doing LEGAL things. The officers are misusing this penal code to go on a fishing expedition in hopes to incriminate the law abiding. Officers do not have Probable Cause here unless they can articulate facts that would lead a reasonable person to believe that crime is afoot.

    @JoelJW -Make sure …
    @JoelJW -Make sure to check out the “Video Responses.” There you can hear the reporting party’s call to dispatch personel.

    What an idiot! Why …
    What an idiot! Why would you carry a gun and let the first dude in a uniform demand you to put your hands on your head and let him disarm you? He did not commit a crime in any way, he has no obligation to let any man tell him what to do. That completely devalues the whole point of carrying a personal protection tool in public.

    I think your accent …
    I think your accent says alot about how precious your rights are to you, buddy. But this is America. If you don’t like it go back to your equally broke big brother surviellance state… where people go through your trash to write you tickets if you didn’t recycle. You don’t see any Indians or Cowboys… but what else don’t you see? CRIMINALS’ CONCEALED GUNS. They didn’t bother to get the impossible to get state permission to CCW in Commiefornia. I’m glad i moved. It’s not Vermont but it’s better

    Why the heck did …
    Why the heck did they include that idiot aussie at the end? What business does he have telling Americans in America how we can exercise our American rights? If ya don’t like the Constitution, go back down under, mate.

    The news people …
    The news people make it sound as if the person who dialed 911 was an innocent bystander who was afraid. More likely than not it was some anti-gun jerk who doesn’t want people practicing their 2nd amendment right. Law enforcement should be trained to tell people that it’s not illegal to open-carry, and unless the person is in the act of committing an actual crime, don’t call them. Otherwise, it’s an abuse of the 911 system and civil liberties.

    Those stupid people …
    Those stupid people are abusing the 911 calls just to harass law-abiding gun owners who are open-carrying.

    I couldn’t believe …
    I couldn’t believe it when I heard that idiot say “no Indians running around”. UBELIEVABLE! As I read through the comments, I was glad to see others caught that as well.

    @ic069 Oppps,, Almost insult another nation without cause? Good catch, or perhaps you mean to be vague? And congrat’s on your gang and mafia problems. To hear the European media tell it, only the U.S. has such things as gangs and organized crime. Anyway,,,,,,,
