So I am in Vicksburg, Mississippi yesterday, and I stop for gas and food. The wife and kids walk the dog and head over to the restaurant while I fill up the gas guzzling luxury vehicle with premium. I see a police car enter the parking lot. Finally, I finish, and go over to the restaurant. I go inside. I notice through the glass the patrol car has driven across the lot to the restaurant. It's hot, so I arrange for the two teenaged boys to get water for the dog and alternate taking him out for a walk every 10 minutes. The patrol car parks. We sit down at a table. The officer has not gotten out of his car. He alternately rolls down the window or rolls it up, but he is just sitting there. He is not writing a report. I saw him speak on the radio once or twice, but the behavior that really has me watching him is that he is watching me through the window of the restaurant. This is very noticeable because of the way he has to turn his head. Finally, after 15 minutes or so, I mention something to my wife, who said she noticed he has been staring, too. So I quickly go to handgunlaw.us on the iPhone and start reading to confirm what I already thought, that Mississippi is a state that does not require a license to carry openly. This way I know best how to handle the coming confrontation. My wife adds the information that she thinks somebody called him, because she saw two persons at his window talking to him over at the gas station and saw him follow me over to the restaurant. Meanwhile we see two more patrol cars drive around the parking lot. Both leave, but the original officer is still there, still watching my family inside the restaurant. So there i am sitting with me four kids (one of whom is a toddler) and wife, waiting. And waiting. And waiting. Guy watched us like a hawk for a long time, more than a half hour, before finally leaving without ever having gotten out of his car. Another car went around the restaurant and left. We finished and left. I kind of feel sorry for the officer. I am guessing with the benefit of hindsight somebody called. He had to respond, because he is dispatched. He knows I am not doing anything illegal. I am obviously not robbing the restaurant with my family of six. The toddler is not wearing a ski mask. What to do? Maybe he waited a while to make sure the callers were placated and then left? I do have to say my stress level went up until he departed. It is not comfortable being watched like that when you just want to eat, feed your kids, and get a low stress break from the road.
