I'm willing to bet if the jerk had relinquished the weapon(s) while the investigation was conducted we wouldn't be talking about this and he would not have been charged with anything.
Reasonable suspicion of suspicious.
Again, warcrys example. Suspicious of what? Walking down the street? Piss off. (Not you)
If the cops had acted appropriately this guy wouldn't have gotten what you all say he wanted. There would be no story. Walking down the street with a rifle slung over your shoulder is not reasonable suspicion of criminal activity.
I love the disorderly conduct/disturbing the peace bit. Please arrest me for that.
Tell me what other crimes can a man walking with a rifle be charged with. I'm all ears.
