Law Enforcement Officers (LEOs) have come under a lot of fire recently. Some deserve it, some deserve to be fired and hell some deserve do do jail time, still I feel most LEOs do their jobs with honor. Today we have an active LEO who will discuss the view from his side. Explain how to interact with police intelligently and frankly admit that what some of his fellow officers have done ranges from wrong to down right criminal.
We will call this officer Tim O’Brian though that isn’t his real name. He must use a false name to avoid potentially reprisal from his department for speaking candidly. Given that nothing he said here was really out of line or even harsh to his own department, one must feel that his need to hide his real name is actually part of the problem.
Tim and I have a great discussion that goes almost two hours and I really didn’t realize that during the interview at all until right at the end. He is a good guy, doing a hard job. Tune in as we discuss everything from open carry activism to marijuana legalization to lawful vs unlawful detention and more.
