A group of girls innocently eating sandwiches at a Subway located inside a Walmart in Missouri found themselves at the center of police officer harassment. Their crime was no crime at all. They were legally following the Missouri Open Carry laws with valid gun permits.
According to a TPNN report, some liberals were uncomfortable seeing the girls’ guns. So, police were called. Had this been handled any differently, it would not be as big of a deal. But, the police showed up with semi-automatic weapons, illegally detained the girls, and treated them with an overt abuse of power. The officer’s ignorance of the Second Amendment and his own state’s gun laws is ridiculous!
When one girl showed him her gun permit, he demanded to see her identification instead. A government issued passport was also not a sufficient form of identification as he asks another girl if she has any other form of ID. He demanded to see the identification of every single girl in the group, even those who were not carrying weapons.
Not only did he illegally detain this innocent group of young girls, but he also became irate when he realized he was being filmed. This officer’s abuse of power continues when he forces a friend of the group who showed up at the Subway to produce ID as well.
At no point could the officer state why the girls were being detained, even when asked on numerous occasions. When asked if they had broken any law, he responded, “I don’t know. That’s what I’m trying to determine.”
So, in Missouri, an officer’s ignorance of the law and obvious power trip leads to law-abiding Americans simply exercising their constitutional rights to be treated like common criminals.
