Cop Threatens to Execute Driver

Comments Filter:
  • I wonder why William feels the need to carry a concealed weapon. Perhaps he's afraid he might encounter a psycho with a gun such as Daniel Harless.

  • Crazy ironic how the cop keeps yelling at him about how carrying a gun is a big responsibility and that he failed to live up to that responsibility. It's almost like the cop was projecting all his own failings on to the guy.

  • The Constitution explicitly refers to guns in the context of a "well regulated militia". Can someone explain how the US got from a well regulated militia to uncontrolled individuals carrying concealed weapons? The whole point of a militia is that (a) it has an authority framework and (b) it's visible.
