    Bigger Problem for Birmingham: Their Police and Prosecuting Attorney

    Sean Combs preserves Liberty for us in Michigan, guaranteed by our Constitution.

    In closing arguments, Kacharik told jurors that the case was not about the Second Amendment or any of Combs' civil rights, but rather his interest in "showing off" an antique 1940s rifle his brother had given him for his 18th birthday.

    "It was about choices, choices he made that night," she said. "He made a choice to conduct himself in a loud, boisterous manner when questioned by police.

    "He wanted to open carry, because it is something he always wanted to do. He and his girlfriend spent an hour and a half walking around the downtown 'doing laps.' He was feeling good about himself and showing off to his  girlfriend."

    She stressed that Combs was arrested only after he repeatedly refused to provide identification showing he was of legal age, at least 18, to be carrying a weapon. While Combs never pointed or threatened anyone with the weapon, he carried it in an "ostentatious" manner, she said, which is defined as brandishing in dictionaries.

    "He was showing off," she told the jury. "He liked the attention. He wanted to shock people."

    The two female Officers that were derelict in their duty are a disgrace, and I hope the young man sues the bejesus out of the City of Birmingham.  Their prosecutors obviously have a "pound of flesh" agenda that conflicts with Law, all based upon unnecessary hype created by their PD.

    Below is a lesson for all LEO's on how it's done.

    I respect that.

    Should have never gotten to trial (none / 0) (#1)

    While I question the pragmatic judgement of anyone LONG gun open carrying in a city, there's nothing illegal (nor should be) about open carry, even with a long gun. I do hope that he gets a belt holster and a pistol at age 21. That's what pistols are for.

    Open carry is not brandishing. There's no threat. It's a lawful activity. He didn't move the gun around when making a threat or gesture. All he did was have it over the shoulder, and likely didn't play ball with the cops who hate it when a "kid" knows the law better than they do.

    It's worth noting that this isn't prosecuted by Oakland County. This is done by the City Attorney of Birmingham. Usually county prosecutes. This didn't happen.

    If God forbid there's a conviction, appeal the hell out of it. Once there's an acquittal sue the hell out of Birmingham. They're rich. They can afford the judgment.

    ...but SIX TIMES they had made the offer to drop any civil litigation if the case was dropped by Birmingham (go to the 8:00 mark).

    And waiting ten minutes before charging someone for "brandishing" a firearm???

    If these are the type of cops they have patrolling B'ham, I'll feel safer in Detroit!

    Jeez, what the hell happened to Birmingham? (none / 0) (#6)
