There is a reason I do not support police as a job role or necessary segment of society. While I would gladly support local township/county sheriffs who did not in any way accept or benefit from outside support and were beholden only to the locale in which they worked, I cannot see the benefit of state enforcers. The linked article shows why. And now another former cop lover understands why the majority of citizens in this country detest cops as they are and as they act now.
This being said, always be armed, always be smart and stop blindly obeying these state enforcers and their masters. Personally I prefer to carry either a Spyderco PM2 with a 3.5 inch blade or a CRKT M16 folder with a 3″ blade or another favorite and well tested knife the
Kershaw Ken Onion Leek with a legal length blade
Be safe, be smart and be prepared!
