The cops had a gunman loose who had already shot officers so I’m not surprised they checked cars with a weapon drawn.
Around the time cell phones were making a dent in communication, I was driving in the county I lived in then, and there was a roadblock. The officer had his gun out when he came to my window. There was a criminal on the loose somewhere in that area, and he needed to check my car to be sure the man was not hiding in my car. He would have been pretty dumb if he came to the car with no weapon in his hand and the guy had been in my car. That is asking to be shot if he had no gun out.
A few miles past the roadblock, I saw a man without a shirt on walking next to the tree line off the road. That made no sense to me why his shirt was off and walking next to the trees. I used my cell phone and called 911 to report where this man was and I for sure kept driving to get out of that area.
Cops get killed all the time by walking up to a driver’s window when their guns in the holster. If it’s a speeding problem, they aren’t going to have their gun out, but in this present case today, they knew they had an armed man on the loose. I would expect the rifle to be out.
Look at that FAT-AZZ P.O.S. in the back-ground. Hermann Goring’s brother. Let alone the idiot pointing the rifle. A totally disgusting image. The new NAZI-MERICA.
But it makes us so safe! So says all the Police State loving FReepers who just LOVED the Boston Bomber shealter in place order!
If it were the other way around, the media would have no problem pointing out the obvious.
