Which is not remotely what the article said, of course.

Why is this even news? Let alone one lasting as long as it did. The guy was an asshole. Everyone's entitled to their opinions but there's a way to do it and a way to be an asshole.

Also, you touch a cop, you're getting arrested. You're a farking IDIOT if you don't know this.

After numerous interjections, Musso decided to walk away, but Concord police had been called. When officers began talking to him, Musso initiated physical contact with police, Sexton said.

Yup, headline really got the facts straight...

Also, it's "speaks his piece."

Once again, a headline that demonstrates the fine line between "using creative snark to poke fun at the article" and "being a farking idiot who can't read."

1) He's a dick for interrupting like that.
2) That's some pretty weak "physical contact" that he initiated there.

Yep.  Nice & troll-y headline you got there, submitter...

So he's a mayor in support of illegal guns?  Or is it guns for illegals?  Anti-steroid?

I'm sure any are possible in the article.
 
2013-06-19 10:02:02 AM
he did "initiate physical contact," but that's quite a stretch to the escalation of force.  He was receiving a warning from one cop while the other was going for an arm lock? Also, I love the look on the guy's face when he has 3 cops giving him a hug and working against each other to take him down.

The guy at the podium should have shot the douchnozzle for getting in his face. Coming right at him, castle doctrine, etc etc.

This.

And while it is weak physical contact, if a judge finds it aggressive that he seemed to be attempting to turn the cop (weakly) that is enough.

Then you need a jury to convict him.

you know, looking from the outside (Canada) at all these gun retards you have down south is sometimes amusing, sometimes scary.

of all the things to get worked up over, a farking gun? really? that's the best you can do? how about you just go half retard and get really passionate about Nascar, or UFC?

but guns?
 
2013-06-19 10:11:49 AM
It's Mayors Against Guns. They don't care at all if they are "illegal" or not. AND they are losing badly in the court of public opinion.

/Gun Control is STILL a loser at the polls

Well, the 4th amendment is dead and the 2nd under constant assault.  We may as well put that pesky 1st to ground while we're at it.
 
2013-06-19 10:13:20 AM
Punching a cop in the face = assault
Pushing a cop away from you hard enough he has to take a step back = assault.
Touching a cop's arm = not assault

Seriously? He just touched the cop. He wasn't threatning him. I've seen cops damn near lose their shiat when one is just standing around, and a guy walks up to ask him a general question and taps him on the shoulder 'Excuse me sir..." and the cop acts like the guy stuck his penis in his pocket. "DON'T TOUCH ME SIR! YOU GOT THAT? DO NOT TOUCH ME AGAIN OR I WILL ARREST YOU!" Arrest for what? Felonious shoulder touching?

Read about a case where someone was getting mouthy with a cop (not the smart thing, I agree) and the cop pushed him away very forcefully. I guy tripped and in trying to break his fall, he reached out to grab anything. He got the cop's vest, and in doing so, broke his name badge. They charged him with destruction of government property.

blocked by police until he gave them a reason to arrest him

Tip for life: If the police are standing in your way, yelling at you, doing just about anything you find annoying the solution is never to touch them in any way. It gives them an excuse to arrest you and will pretty much ruin your day.
 
2013-06-19 10:22:52 AM
Free Stater. I'd buy those cops a beer if I could.

being an asshole should have consequences.
 
2013-06-19 10:23:38 AM
That guy was there to cause trouble and hopefully provoke an arrest, and the cops were there to provoke him into doing something arrestable. All of them should be cited for disorderly conduct.
 
2013-06-19 10:24:58 AM
The guy was being a total dick to someone who had lost a child, but the cops shouldn't have tased him. If you can't take down a guy slightly larger than you all  by yourself, without using a potentially deadly weapon (and tasers do kill people) you shouldn't be allowed to be a cop.

That said, I wish these people who are so adamant about gun rights would apply that passion equally to other important social issues.

MythDragon: Touching a cop's arm = not assault


Tell you what.  Touch a cop in a condescending way and see what happens.  Doesn't matter how morally superior you feel, don't be a dumb ass.

"Why are you shaking talking about this? You're not the truth!" Musso said.

What...  What does that even mean.

Hecklers should never speak the words "Freedom of Speech."   Shouting over someone is effectively denying their freedom of speech.  Tacky.

natas6.0: guy had his arms crossed and was trying to walk away

Even if he was trying to "walk away" he could be arrested for disturbing the peace prior to that.

The inevitabel "assault" charge is BS.
 
2013-06-19 10:29:02 AM
In order to be a "counter protestor" doesn't one have to be interrupting a protest at another event, as opposed to interrupting a rally/speech, in which case one would just be a "protestor"? A counter-protestor would be someone who tried to interfere with what his group was doing (which was, it appears, interfering with another event).

/used to live in NH so I'm getting a kick out of this
//watched a neighbor of mine talk himself from a noise warning into handcuffs
///since when is it news that so much as looking like you're thinking about considering touching a cop is "assault"?
 
2013-06-19 10:29:25 AM
There is a Mayors Against Illegal Guns group?  I thought objects and people can't be "illegal" (e.g. illegal aliens).

Is there a Mayors For Illegal Guns group that they are trying to counter?
 
2013-06-19 10:29:57 AM
A handshake with a cop would also be enough for him to tase you, so why is this news?

He had already done something arrest worthy.

fark him.
 
2013-06-19 10:31:34 AM
Simple rule I tell my kids:  Gun + Badge = wins.   You get pulled over by a cop you say, "yes sir, no sir," and you damned well better do it politely.  You want to argue, you go do it in court...period.

What's fun is white +50 males are now discovering that when it comes to protests, the cops don't like you.  And if you're dumb enough to touch one...in ANY way...you are gonna eat pavement.  Gun + badge = wins.
