Recklessly jaywalking in front of FL cops with a dangerous navigation aid in his pocket? That guy’s a real daredevil.

Blinded by ignorance.

But the question remains: Did he enjoy his paid vacation in Martha’s Vineyard?

Arrested for not respecting their authority. Usually that comes with a beating.

Isn’t carrying a gun and shooting people because you feel uncomfortable around them perfectly legal in Florida?

You’ve identified the problem, though. He didn’t shoot enough teenagers to qualify for police protection.

The beatings will continue until you’re not blind anymore.

Arrested, not “put 28 bulllets in to the back of…”.

Tell me what colour he is without telling me what colour he is.

If they thought he was carrying a gun, I’m surprised they didn’t shoot him first.

I think the days when you could qualify for ‘open carry patriot’ with just a suspected pistol may be over.

It’s still your call whether your load bearing vest is for ballistic plates or just to ease the handling of the distinctive gravy seal paunch; but if you can’t at least bring a rifle you just aren’t serious.

White or not, I’m surprised they didn’t shoot him… and I mean after they discovered he was blind.
