Sounds like Oswego Wal-Mart is a good place to stay out of.
It would appear that someone is taking their alleged authority a bit to far.

There has to be more to the story than just the guy who got arrested says, police are trained in using use of force and it is hard to imagine a veteran officer just pulling a gun on a man for just being mad at him.....

Maybe if Illinois had a concealed carry law an arrogant,self absorbed person would not be so quick to pull a gun on another person for such a trivial reason.
Might think about his actions a little more.

You see what happens when the state disarms the citizens? Apparently this "cop" did not identify himself before pulling his gun. Had a law-abiding citizen with the proper permit committed this same act, we would be hearing about "get the guns out of their hands". Now, had a law abiding citizen, with weapon and carry permit, witnessed this and reacted appropriately, the copy would have been staring down the barrel of a gun held by that citizen. At that point, I wouldn't care if you showed me 100 badges, your a$$ best drop the gun or I WILL shoot. And, according to the police, I would have been in the "wrong" here. People of New York, stand up for your rights! You have the RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS!! You do not have to tolerate this type of behavior- this guy is a danger to society and should not be carrying a firearm or a badge! He should be wearing a number! People of New York, let your voices be heard in the voting booth! Fight for your 2nd amendment rights!

People of Illinois should recognize this as their wake up call! New York, Illinois, California.....people, wake up! You have a Constitutional RIGHT to bear arms! This idiot was able to do this because he KNOWS that NOBODY can lawfully meet his aggression with a firearm with an equalizing firearm- LEGALLY.

Now I see that they (while in uniform and on duty) pulled their guns on an 8 year old! These guys need to be removed- THEY constitute a serious threat to public safety and have clearly demonstrated that 1. they have created an atmosphere where pulling your gun on someone is OK, no matter what 2. have zero accountability for their actions. As I stated in a previous post, it won't be long before they shoot an innocent person.(afterwhich, they will hold an "investigation" and clear themselves of any wrong doing). Contact your lawmakers and politicians- demand the removal of ALL of these officers and the entire "leadership" (they are responsible for creating this environment). Recall the sheriff and hold an emergency election.
