Lawsuit: Gun owner says police wrongly detain him for openly carrying pistol
#1
Quote:GRAND RAPIDS, MI – A man who says he legally carried a pistol in a holster has filed a federal lawsuit against Grand Rapids police after he was forced to the ground at gunpoint and had his firearm temporarily seized.

Johann Deffert of Grand Rapids filed the lawsuit on Friday, Dec. 20, in U.S. District Court in Grand Rapids. He alleges police violated his constitutional rights, assaulted him and falsely imprisoned him.

Deffert is seeking a judgment of $100,000, and an additional $500,000 for punitive and/or exemplary damages, along with costs.

The incident happened around noon on March 3 when Deffert said he was walking on a public sidewalk, openly carrying a holstered pistol, when an officer approached.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

Two things....

1) See how bad 911 sucks at getting info to the police.

2) I have a feeling that the 911 caller was "the guy".

I am starting to understand some peoples disdain for the police. I had a incident and was interviewed here at home. What the officer told me and what he charged me with are flat out lies. I guess it doesnt help the cop knows the complaintant. This officer didnt have any interest in what I had to say.

well yellow shoelaces are typically assault laces, so I would hope so...
