“(they) confirmed themselves dignified, and regal in that arrest. They really saved the state of affairs calm by not elevating voice, by not hiding their arms.”
Mike goes on “In issues of Philando Castile, I’d relatively begin to congratulate the person he was, he was a working man, he was a authorized firearms earner.” Philando Castile is the younger man who was a authorized conceal carry holder pulled over and shot level clean by police even after politely following their directions and informing the cops he was a authorized hid carry holder.
