Yeah it adds a whole nother dimension... almost surreal.

Dave is really good at commentary and it really makes it more exciting.  8)

It's deplorable that Dave was stopped and questioned at all, but to keep things in perspective, he wasn't disarmed or handcuffed and they didn't demand to run the serial number of his pistol. I can't imagine the incident unfolding like this in any other state.

Compare and contrast to sjhipple's open carry incident in Virginia, where he wasn't breaking any laws either.

Yeah my real problem with the incident is the implied detention. A couple of armed men surrounding you in the ready to draw posture implies that you are being held. A less informed citizen could reasonably believe that he has to do what they say and is required to answer their questions.

I think this is shown by how the Manchester Sergeant didn't want to agree that Dave had been accosted, but then wanted me to stop taping him. They knew that they were very close to having unlawfully detained him.

Also error should  get credit for creating and maintaining Porc411 :thanks:

Thanks! This is exactly the sort of thing (one of them, anyway) I had in mind when I set up Porc 411.

I had to laugh at Russell waving his hand in front of Uncle Fester's face. Didn't even get a flinch out of him... I think he was asleep.  ;D

This would be a great story for the inaugural edition of the Manchvegas Lowdown/Free Press  paper.

I wonder if this Dada character is available for an interview?

One thing I have to say about Dave - is that he conducts himslef in a respectful manner....and that makes his acts of civil disobedience far more effective.

I agree, Dave's demeanor is most affective, but this was definitely not disobedience.

Roger,

Well done on the video.  I will be submitting Lauren's edit of the "Tilting at Windmills" event for broadcast as fill programming on Cheshire TV.  If you want to put some of your more recent packages in broadcast quality on a DVD and send it to me I would be happy to submit them as well!

I don't know, when the officers treat legal behaviour as illegal behaviour isn't it disobedience in a way? Lawful disobedience to officers of the law who don't know the law, rather than disobedience of laws viewed as immoral?
