Police ARE NOT your "friend". Their is much angst about inner-city blacks not cooperating with police. Frankly, I don't blame them. Police have turned into an "army of occupation" in many areas. Militarization of police forces has fostered an "us vs. them" attitude in which the cops are seen as the "good guys" that get away with anything, even murder. No-nock warrantless (or warrants issued on flimsy or no "evidence") raids do nothing to endear police to citizens. EVEN THE NAZIS KNOCKED ON THE DOOR BEFORE GAINING ENTRY. I repeat: police ARE NOT your friend. Be very wary when dealing with them.

A decorated war veteran on a Boy Scout hike with his 15-year-old son was arrested alongside a Texas country road after a police officer accused him of “rudely displaying” a firearm.

Army Master Sgt. C.J. Grisham told Fox News he was illegally disarmed by members of the Temple Police Dept. - even though he held the proper permits to carry his weapons.

Grisham and his son were on a 10-mile hike in a rural area populated by wild boars and cougars. He was carrying an AR-15 rifle and a .45 caliber pistol.

He was charged with resisting arrest - even though...
