The police had every right to question the man and ask for his ID, in fact I'd expect them too. If that guy had shown some respect for the police and not been such a ________ there shouldn't have been any real problem.
Also, in my State when approached by an officer if you have a CCW (referred to as CPL here) you must tell the officer immediately.

Well there's 20 minutes of my life wasted and will never get back.

All I see are some LEO's (working joe's like everyone else, except their job is more dangerous) being very patient with a loud mouth twit. Shame his son had to see it.

I am still trying to find a law, from anywhere, regarding "rudely displaying." No luck so far.

And when the 2 officers came back and said he was under arrest - do they not have to tell the person what for? IDK.

I don't know what happened before the video, or after, but at the point of this interaction I believe the gov't employees in charge (the Police) should be made to have responsibility for at least communicating better.

Regardless of outcome, these officers did not uphold their job responsibilities of any civilized community.

This. He sought a confrontation, used his minor child as cameraman, and purposefully put on a show. Makes gun owners look terrible. I can't believe the military would be too happy with this bozo rolling around.

I'm amazed that you will write the first paragraph and then write the second.

Some men, you just can't reach. So you get what we have here last week. Which is the way he wants it! Well he gets it! I don't like anymore than others here."

You make it sound like he ambushed the officer. I'm pretty sure that's been a valid military tactic since time immemorial, mostly because it has a tendency to work against an unprepared foe. That someone deliberately walked into one, unprepared, is more worrisome to me.*

Were it one of my troops, we'd have a little wall-to-wall counseling session, should he survive the incident. Thankfully, in the civilian world such screw-ups usually don't have to pay with their blood and lives. Make a court room seem quite civilized in comparison.

Time and time again the courts have ruled that the mere sight of a firearm where firearms are legal to carry poses no suspicion of illegality.

*That's making the rather large assumption that such an 'ambush' took place and it wasn't as the individual reported it to be.

I didn't see it previously mentioned, but the Temple Tx. Officer who disarmed Grisham of the 1911 that Grisham carried on his left side muzzle swept Grisham and his own Sgt during the disarm.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...v=A8r4MK3R4PI#!

The 1911 disarm starts at 2:50 -- officer is standing behind Grisham, uses his left hand to extract 1911 from left side of Grisham's belt -- as he passes the pistol over to his Sgt (who is standing off to their right) he muzzle sweeps Grisham's neck and head -- then offers the pistol muzzle 1st to the Sgt... thus sweeping Sgt's torso when doing so.

Close inspection of the video will reveal that the 1911's hammer was down, but that is a minor detail.

Some might view this as a tangent, but I see it as one of the most important elements to this story.

I would like to see the complete video before making any definative statements. Does anyone have a link to the COMPLETE video?

The problem that I have with this is that just because people are scared, it should not constitute a violations. I know people that would be scared if they saw a black person ( you may insert whatever race, culture, creed here, ie: biker, punk rocker, neo-nazi skinhead) walking down their street. Do they call the police and do the police come and harrass the said black person? No (not in most places) because it is not illegal to either be black or to walk down the street. That does not negate or make less real the fear of the people that are scared to see a black man walking on their street. The carrying of a firearm, of whatever nature, is also not illegal, where it is not prohibited. Is it going to scare some people? Yes, probably so. Should it, in and of itself constitute disturbing the peace? No, no more than being black (or your pick of ethnicity, culture, etc) should. IDK, just my Sunday morning 2 cents.

Oddly enough, since the video is the property of the subject, there is no "complete" video to be found

His pawns that have posted it in every section of the forum don't even think that is odd

Hmmm I wonder if maybe they just edited out the boring or unfocused parts to improve the overall quality of the video?

I suspect the beginning may be missing because Grisham might be concerned that his initial actions came close to "resisting arrest" (that is likely what you would argue, no?). Given his level of agitation throughout the incident, that is what seems likely to me.

My point is --From the standpoint of peaceful activism, Grisham did it wrong throughout the entire video (IMO), by displaying a level of aggression greater than that of the officers. Constitutional issues aside, he likely won't win the battle of public opinion -- so unless the missing footage contains something outrageous, I can't see the edit being pivotal to his cause.

Contrast this to the Gwinnett park recording. Proesher was calm and collected throughout the ordeal, and I'm sure it helped his case.

At first I was going to ask, "How does HE know how calm and collected I was?" and then I remembered the entire encounter was captured on digital media including the embarrassing first twenty minutes of my huffing and puffing my fat little butt around the pedestrian pathway.

I wouldn't say I was calm and collected, I'd just been disarmed by someone with an adversarial attitude and surrounded by six armed men and a boy. Or maybe it was five armed men and a boy...
Officer Bell
Officer Dantzler
Corporal Kimsey
Sergeant Chapel
the guy who refused to give his name..
... and the young cadet who was observing from afar.

Five armed men and a boy.

Idk I see fault in both sides here. I think the cops made some statements on the video that will get the case tossed out, however he could have made this a lot easier on himself and probably wouldn't have ended up in jail. I would think a war veteran would be a little more respectful of LEO's

I agree with almost all of this. My thinking is the "resisting" came from taking the camera off and handing to the boy and telling the cop to hold on when he went to cuff him...... It's a weak case. Bu as you said he was very aggressive

But that part was seen in the beginning of the video... IF Grisham did indeed take the time to selectively edit the video, AND if he was concerned about that piece... he likely would have snipped it out.

The more I watch this - the more I am believing that the beginning was not edited out.

The part in question is the very beginning of the incident-- From when the officer got out of his car to the point where the officer supposedly drew his weapon and slammed Grisham on the hood of his car (from Grisham's statements below the YouTube vid) --
Quote:
At that point, the officer grabbed my rifle without warning or indication. He didn't ask for my rifle and he didn't suggest he would take it from me. He simply grabbed it. This startled me and I instantly pulled back - the rifle was attached to me - and I asked what he thought he was doing because he's not taking my rifle. He then pulled his service pistol on me and told me to take my hands off the weapon and move to his car, which I complied with.
The video seems to begin during the part where Grisham is "slammed on the hood of the cruiser". Given that Grisham still has the rifle on him, it seems reasonable to think that that this is very early in the incident. The only part missing is the cop pulling his gun, and executing the "hood slam".

Grisham claims to have turned the camera on during this "hood slam".

In my mind the real question is - "Did the Officer really pull his gun?". If that really happened, as Grisham claims, I can't imagine why he would want to edit it out of the video.


I think there are basically two beliefs one can have here.
  1. Grisham is an "activist" who strapped on an AR, went on a ten mile hike in rural Texas with his son, and was looking for a confrontation. He either had the camera rolling for the entire hike, or was Johnny on the spot turning it on when the officer arrived. This version would believe that the officer did not pull his gun, and that Grisham is lying about that part, and thus chose to edit the very beginning of the video to conceal that fact.
  2. Grishams story about the beginning of the confrontation is true... the start of the video is unedited... and the remainder is there to be seen on YouTube.

Well, when one takes part of the post out

Don't be overly sensitive, I am a native Texan also.

What I said was I don't know if the officers are guilty of lawbreaking. I find them guilty of not communicating better given what was seen. I asked a ? about having to tell someone what they were arrested for. I think, as far as what is seen in the video, they did not conduct themselves to the higher standard they, rightly or wrongly, are required, IMO, to hold.

If the man with the rifle was/is guilty of crimes, the officers as part of their job have to deal with that.

I am amazed, if after truly reading the post, you can not understand that.

P.S. Could you, by any chance, find for us a law regarding "rudely displaying"? I still have had no luck.

Well I already explained how Grisham was charged go back and look.

You can think I am overly sensitive and I don't know what you being from TX has to do with it.

The officers dealt with Grisham, just not to your liking and you are basing that on a video that is only partial and created by Grisham.

You'll find that communication could be better on any high risk call. Most calls don't always go 100% correct because humans are not static robots.

I find your reply biased cuz you concentrate on the officers supposed lack of communicating but didn't mention anything on Grisham and his antics. I'll ask you I asked others on another forum: how would you approach a man with a gun call you got dispatched on and the guy cops an attitude?

The only question I have is when the woman called the TPD and reported a man with a rifle was walking down the street, why did the TPD dispatcher not reply, "Ma'am, you're calling me to report legal activity."

Becuase a dispatcher wouldn't be a dispatcher long if they assumed a call like that was not worth reporting.

She called in to report LEGAL activity and the police responded. Texas should make open carry of a long gun illegal if the police are going to treat it as such.

What if she had reported that he was eating a burrito while walking down the road?
