Combat vet files suit in bizarre open carry arrest

Things are heating up for a Wyoming sheriff’s deputy to made a bizarre offer to a Marine Corps veteran who served two tours in Afghanistan. Capt. Robert Pierson says the deputy offered to release him if the Captain allowed the deputy’s partner to shoot him if he made an sudden movements as he drove away.

The deputy agrees to the account provided by the Marine, and furthermore, there is an audio recording of the stop.

The Marine has filed a civil rights lawsuit.

    The audio is sad. The cop seems afraid because the biker / vet did not tell him he was armed, which is not a requirement in Wyoming & he had the gun on his hip!

    It seems to be a case where law enforcement feels uncomfortable with citizens expressing their constitutional rights.

    In the end the comments by the deputy are at best threatening and bizarre, and likely meant to make it clear to the vet that law enforcement will take violent action as a matter of principle and nothing else.

    The vet was very respectful.

    More of this kind of thing to come?

    It’s a shame that some LEOs don’t get it, but people like Capt. Pierson would be the kind to actually help Law Enforcement if the mud people ever rise up in mass.

      Great point.

    If some of these gomer’s had to pass a psyc test to be a permit holder, never mind a COP, the ranks would be considerably thinner among the crazies like this doofus.

    Semper Fi.

    • scrambo

      so does Semper Fi mean always faithful to the constitution or always faithful to the tyrants in office? just been wondering which side the marines will be on when the SHTF in this country?

  • Maluka

    I guess the academy the deputy attended was know as DUMBBELL U. What an idiot. Has he been fired yet?

  • John Brashear

    much of this anti gun sentiment is bred in upper management and it’s Liberal slant, it is coming from those above and pushed on others in the rank and file, and politicizing ANY Government agency is BAD for all of us, …..just take a look at the BATFE…
