OKC officer pulls man over for anti-Obama sign on vehicle
NewsOK ^ | 2/19/09

Posted on 02/19/2009 7:25:45 AM PST by peggybac

An Oklahoma City police officer wrongly pulled over a man last week and confiscated an anti-President Barack Obama sign the man had on his vehicle.

The officer misinterpreted the sign as threatening, said Capt. Steve McCool, of the Oklahoma City Police Department, and took the sign, which read "Abort Obama, not the unborn."

Chip Harrison said he was driving to work when a police car followed him for several miles and then signaled for him to pull over.

''I pulled over, knowing I hadn't done anything wrong," Harrison said in a recent phone interview.

When the officer asked Harrison if he knew why he had been pulled over, Harrison said he did not.

It gets worse:

"But his run-in with the law wasn't over yet.

''The Secret Service called and said they were at my house," Harrison said."

Undoubtedly the MSM will express its outrage at this gross display of ignorance. It’s outrage with the driver and his sign, that is.

But his run-in with the law wasn't over yet.

''The Secret Service called and said they were at my house," Harrison said.

After talking to his attorney, Harrison went home where he met the Secret Service.

''When I was on my way there, the Secret Service called me and said they weren't going to ransack my house or anything ... they just wanted to (walk through the house) and make sure I wasn't a part of any hate groups."

Harrison said he invited the Secret Service agents into the house and they were "very cordial."

''We walked through the house and my wife and 2-year-old were in the house," Harrison said.

He said they interviewed him for about 30 minutes and then left, not finding any evidence Harrison was a threat to the president.

I would have told the SS to kiss my ***, get a warrant

I hope the person sues the crap out of the sheriffs office, or at least demand the moron that pulled him over be fired.

Like h*ll the cop didn’t know what the sign meant. It was negative about Biggie O and that’s what had to be stopped. The secret service??? Waaay over the line.

In OKC, we lovingly refer to the local pd as nnmf's. No neck mother f*&%^#@s. Their neck measuremnt is larger than their IQ.

I am surprised they actually stopped the guy. If there isn't a high speed chase or a gun fight it's hard to get them out of the car......red

This is intimidation and harassment. I wonder if the guy will keep the sign on his car. He should file the complaint and sue.

The offending officer’s name needs to be reported. I hope Mr. Harrison sues the ever loving $#&* out of the police dept. for hiring such idiots to be policemen. The officer should be fired and made an example that idiocy of law in police depts. will not be tolerated.

I’m talking about their actions, if they are called, they have to go out. You are right, they shouldn’t have been called, but the offender is the person who called, not the Secret Service agents.
