Armed Doylestown man with body armor dog

Um, okay.....

Quote:A Hilltown man who's a suspect in an ethnic intimidation case in Montgomery County was detained and later released by Bucks County authorities Thursday after he walked near the county Justice Center in Doylestown accompanied by a German shepherd clad in a ballistic vest.
“Some people asked what he was doing and he told them he was training his dog to sniff for bombs,” Bucks County District Attorney David Heckler said about 52-year-old Thomas William Driver.

“As you can imagine, that got everyone’s attention,” Heckler said.
Central Bucks Regional police took Driver into custody and found him carrying two handguns, Heckler said, adding that Driver told investigators he was armed due to the threat of terrorism.
Heckler said authorities learned Driver had a permit to carry concealed firearms, which expired in June, but a policy of the Bucks County Sheriff’s Office allows for a six-month grace period for someone to renew the license.
“So he was not committing a crime by carrying those weapons,” Heckler said.
While detaining Driver, investigators learned he had pending charges against him out of Limerick, Montgomery County, stemming from an incident in which he allegedly brandished a firearm toward two women who were wearing burqas or “some type of Muslim garb,” Heckler said.

They got a nice picture of the dog.

I hadn't heard of "ethnic intimidation" before. Isn't that like what Black Panthers did in 2008 in Philly?

So now it's bad to brandish a weapon but it's an extra charge if its at somebody wearing a turban?

We are so screwed up.

Policy? How about state law?

I think in today's world, it's wise for dogs to wear body armor, especially when walking around police. Smile

How do you train your dog to sniff for bombs without having a bomb for him to locate?

He must have really felt like a dork when he found out the women he terrorized were nuns.

Just to clarify, burkas and turbans are not the same thing and are generally worn by two different groups of people.
Sikhs wear turbans, some Muslims and Hindus wear turbans, but if you see a person wearing a turban in the US, it's a pretty good bet that the person is a Sikh.

That all said, the guy in the article seems to have some mental problems, or at least anger issues, wanna bet at the end of the month he won't be carrying legally?
