My state of residence banned the sale of sex toys a couple of years ago. Now I know why... They represent a threat to public safety!

Seems like any contact with a police officer can be interpreted as assault.

Going to be an interesting trial.

Speaking of trials, I was once in a jury pool for a trial where the charge was assaulting a police officer with a hat. Was deselected because a cow*rker at the time was in the same pool. The guy was acquitted.

Served on two juries and in the jury pool several times and never once was asked for ID.

During the past couple of years several local cops have been killed by crazy criminals. This has led to a very large number of what really do appear to be triggy happy cop incidents ("officer involved shootings"). The most recent, and most bizarre, is a local alky street fixture AmericanIndian who was shot and killed by a policeman because he had a carving knife. (He was an Indian carver, who would sit in the park and do his work) Apparently from all reports, he was standing still, doing nothing but listening to his headphones, and he was shot from a 90 degree angle, 4 times as I recall. The officer was reported advancing on the carver, gun pointed at him. According to said policeman he fired because the shooting victim refused to drop the knife. According to his family, he was partially deaf, and no one disputes that he was wearing headphones. It is very easy for me to imagine that the old man had no idea what the policeman wanted, and certainly had no clue that the was in mortal danger or that this young, well armed cop could have somehow imagined that he or any bystander was in jeopardy. No witness reports have in any way corroborated the cop's account.

The most recent interesting bit of evidence recetly supplied was that his knife, a legal folding knife with a blade shorter than the legal limit of 2 3/4", was closed at the time of his killing.

I know that police have to be hyperalert, because many people are armed, and many are nuts or otherwise impaired. But I think that citizens should not have to fear psycho over-fearful cops more than other citizens on the street.

My worry is that similarly frightened police may not be able to differentiate my folded shorty umbrella from a sawed off shotgun, and will murder me like this cop appears to have murdered this unthreatening, unarmed, old man.

Ha
