If you are referring to Mark Fiorino, the outcome was an Offer of Judgement, and the Philly PD admitted no wrongdoing. It was the attorney's suggestion that this Offer, along with all the publicity and the changes the PPD were implementing was about the best resolution they could hope for in this case.Please let us know if a law suit is filed, and the outcome. A different negative encounter happened a few years ago in Philly, and I believe the Police Dept had to admit it was wrong.
That is correct. Pathetic, isn't it?
Well, he's almost got his head on straight. At least he's better than the officers on the street.Captain Frances Healy, a police lawyer... said that openly carrying a gun is dangerous - someone could grab it - but that most open-carry advocates are law-abiding.
He tells cops to consider thinking of it this way: "If something would go wrong on the street and you were getting your butt kicked, I would venture to guess it'd be one of these individuals that would come to help you.
"Make a friend," he said. "You might need them one day."
For what it's worth, it's my contention that the cop in yellow was frightened. I've seen frightened men talk like that before. Almost from the begining it's my guess he knew he messed up but rather than admit it and back off, he just continued to dig himelf in deeper - and I suggest that frightened men with guns are dangerous men.you are right , i didn't understand a word the cop said. what languish is that?
he really should shut up when dealing with the cops

As for "he really should shut up when dealing with the cops", I agree and if any of you are interested go over to YouTube and search for the video which goes by the title "Why you shouldn't talk to the Cops" or a title very similar to that. If you're going to engage in OC that video is worth down loading and reviewed a half dozen or more times - until all of it sinks in. The actual video consists of two (2) videos; the first by a fast talking law professor from Virginia Beach VA, followed by what appears to be a very competent police detective, also from Virginia Beach VA.
By the way, who has the web site address which offers Firotino's complaint as recently filed, I believe in the U.S. Third District but I could be wrong about that.
I want to thank Curmudgeon for posting the web sites as noted above and as indidivuals who actually do or who simply claim an interest in OC, if you haven't already, I strongly encourage you to go over to those web sites and down load the contents of all three. I say this as, in my opinion, as I understand and know OC to be, to protect your rights, it just won't get much better than what these three have to offer.Fiorino (pdf): http://forum.pafoa.org/attachment.php?attachmentid=36754&d=1329236479

Yes he did. The arrogance, the insolence and the stupidity is something which if you hear about something like that means far less I suspect than actually seeing and hearing it.
