"and charged him with simple battery and resisting law enforcement without using violence."
What kind of BS charge is that? Talk about making up crap. Yup, the old man went overboard. But my concern is this friggin charge and law created by some over zealous politicians that allow cops to charge someone for nothing. Arguing with a cop is now an arrestable offence?
Good grief, Charlie Brown.
I had a friend who just got custody of his 13yr old son. He was in the big city, starting to run with gangs and getting into trouble. He'd been kicked out of school twice for beating on two teachers. So my friend had his hands full trying to straighten the kid out.
So one day, they get into an argument in a parking lot. His kid was taking swings at him. Punch him a couple of times, until my friend was able to grab him and hold him down, until the kid calmed down. After he let go, he walked off for a few minutes to think about what to do with this kid. From what I understand, he walked around a nearby building.
Less than 5 minutes had passed, as he was walking back to his son, the cops pulled up.
Long story short, my friend was taken to jail for child abuse and (get this) "Abandonment with the intent to return."
Same BS overzealous laws that can get you taken to jail for doing nothing.
Clint’s was definitely a Garand. An M1A shoots .308 Win/7.62 NATO, is fed with a 20 rd box mag, and has about a 2 inch long flash suppressor on the barrel that also holds the bayonet lug. They’re easy to tell apart once you see em together
