Chip Harrison was pulled over in Oklahoma City by a overly powerful policeman, about 08:45 12Feb,2009. I have seen police with too much power and little fear of retribution for their actions. I remember Randy Weaver losing several of his family to abusive BATF personnel in the Idaho forest where he lived. I remember too many other situations recently. Now we have a part of the political powers who want to limit the freedom of speech on radio, in our cars and at home. I write these words knowing that we all speak risking much. We risk more to allow police and government to silence good men and women for their words, actions, for working and owning property.
“The sign, which read “Abort Obama Not the Unborn,” was returned to Harrison later that day, the report said.”
“Police spokesman Steve McCool said this morning that the sign was taken in error, and Oklahoma City residents should not be worried that their First Amendment rights will be violated.”
I do know some really great police men who are protectors of the citizens as well as patriotic in their defending city, state and national charters. I worked with several, who after honorably serving their city for 20 years, retired and became teachers of junior and senior high school students. Both great men in their service during and after police careers. Jack McLamb has a saying that should be taken to heart by all law enforcement persons!
“Taking our oath to “protect, preserve, and defend the Constitution” seriously”
