In response to this latest attack, I’ve decided to vigorously pursue my options on both it and the Plymouth one three months ago. The unlimited power held by cops has been laid bare. People who’ve read my recounting of the events insist that these cops can be held accountable by the same system that enables them. Let’s just see about that.
Right to Know Requests
I filed a Right to Know (FOIA) request with Warwick township and an expanded one with Plymouth township yesterday.
Filed a Complaint with Warwick Police
Today I attempted to file a complaint with Mark Goldberg of the Warwick police but didn’t get far, as you can see in the above video. He refused to answer my questions on tape. [The video is also on YouTube.] On my way out, a woman who had seen part of the encounter looked at me like I was a space alien.
Reactions have varied from empathy and outrage to complete disbelief and scorn – and that’s just among my friends and local gun owners. Over at the Pennsylvania firearm owners association (PAFOA) forums, some posters are convinced this is a hoax. They’ve called me a coward for arguing that legal action has a low return on investment. I expect a mixed reaction to open carry horror stories from your average Pennsylvania gun owner, but I didn’t expect to be branded a liar and coward.
One member of the internet peanut gallery told me I should stop carrying because it is attracting thugs to me – thugs of the only kind I can’t feasibly use my gun against. Good point. So I’ve made a small harness for my Flip Cam and am suspending it with a blue Free State Project lanyard from around my neck. Now I’m suitably armed against both kinds of thugs.
More to Come
There’s more to come so stay tuned.
