    I'll translate Evers statement: "That Black man got just a little too uppity for his own good, and we're going to put him in his place."

    I hope Solomon sues and wins big.

    Disturbing. I hope he sues them for all they're worth.

    The taking of the permit seems to be a typical thing for the Philly PD. They did this to a fellow I know up there.

    Take the permit, take the guns. Then send a letter demanding that he turn in the permit. And then, Charge him with carrying without a permit for the same encounter ( I know, it makes no sense, they did it none the less ).

    Good luck getting the firearm and permit back.

    There are a few threads currently active on PAFOA forums which chronicle a lawful gun carrier being harassed by PPD and having their guns/permits confiscated without legal justification. The fascist cesspool that Philly has become is staggering considering the important role it played in the independence of this country.

    Philly is the only reason that Pennsylvania is not a "Gold State" for gun honors. Other citizens of the state have never considered Philly to be part of it. I made two trips to the cesspool in my life. I don't need a third.

    It sounds like Philly is a 5th, 4th and 2nd amendment free zone.

    Just another example of some LEOs either forgetting or never learning the laws they're sworn to uphold. I can't really blame the officers involved when I read what their commander had to say on the situation. They obviously have been trained by an ignorant, arrogant and omnipotent jerk!!!

    State law prevents "Gold Star" status not local Philly law.

    I stand corrected, but not by much. Pennsylvania has two issues, but mostly regarding Philly. From OpenCarry.org:

    State law makes Philly off-limits without a LTCF, not a Philly ordinance.
