Local Police Culture of “Disarmament” Costing Bellingham Taxpayers
Agent Smith shared this post via CopBlock.org’s submit page.
An unnamed employee of the Bellingham, WA Police Department approached a gun owner legally displaying a holstered sidearm, and forced him out of a public park at gunpoint. As a result of these actions, local taxpayers’ are required to provide monetary restitution to the victim, while the officer in question remains anonymous and employed.
Further evidence of the inability of the Bellingham Police Department to comprehend or respect the 2nd Amendment, is provided in this related video.
If this type of attitude continues without immediate retraining, the resulting cost of settlements related to such unlawful conduct will undoubtedly increase, as will the chance Bellingham Police Officers may ultimately kill a resident due to their own ignorance of the law, and a baseless fear of legally-armed, open-carrying citizens.
