Mark Fiorino Nearly Shot By Philly PD for Open Carrying

The above audio was recorded by Mark Fiorino in Philadelphia while on his way to Auto Zone. Mark posted in a PA forum that,

“I was visiting my mother today in Philadelphia to help her around the house and spend time with her. While there, I walked over to the local AutoZone to pick up a part for my car. I was OC due to the (finally) gorgeous weather.

I have learned to always keep my recorder on me and recording when I am in public in Philadelphia, due to the over-zealous nature of the police, and today, I am glad I followed that rule.

As I walked down the street towards the store, I caught a glimpse of a Philadelphia Police cruiser out of the corner of my eye, traveling in the same direction I was.

A few moments later, I hear a vehicle’s transmission roughly slam into “P” very close by.

“Hey, Junior!” comes a voice from the other side of the squad car.

“Junior?!” I replied, as I turned around. I thought to myself, that’s kind of a condescending way to greet someone, isn’t it? As I turned, I prepared to ask the police officer what I could help him with.

It was then that I noticed the officer had his gun trained on my chest.

At least seven officers, 5 squad cars, and a threat of a taser later, I found out what it was like to sit in the back of a paddywagon.”

As I listened to this audio I held my hands to my head, expecting the officer to shoot Mark for refusing to comply with orders. Does anyone else notice how the officer, who has years of training, was the one out of control and that Mark, the ‘regular Joe,’ was the relaxed and reasonable one. Aren’t cops supposed to act like Mark did and the bad guys like that cop was? When did cops start talking like the bad guys? “Get on your Fucking knees or I’ll shoot you!” That’s something bad guys say… Great work Mark, you have some major Cojones, man.
