I thought the U.S. Constitution dictated the rules as in "shall not be infringed."Just the way the rules are.
So does that mean average joes like me can't be trusted to carry a firearm because I don't have a badge on my shirt? Am I morally inferior to those that wear a badge?WE are presumed to hold a special public trust...
Absolutely. LE officers are public servants and are funded by local taxpayers.However, in assuming that public trust we also subject ourselves to public scrutiny
I don't know about that, Sheriff. Most men and women in uniform, like the rest of us, are human. They make honest mistakes and there are even a few who are corrupt. Yet they often receive special treatment (ie not arrested or charged) for acts that would get non-LEs arrested, charged, imprisoned, interrogated, and out right humiliated. Take a look at the "Only One" stories...they go on and on and on...There is never a free lunch.
