Seeing is believing

Joel Rosenberg has posted the raw video from his (interesting, to say the least, although we can think of more appropriate but vulgar descriptions) encounter with the Minneapolis PD's Sergeant William Palmer the other day.  Only the first 2:30 or so is relevant here:

We're by no means law-enforcement professionals or masters of disarming tactics, but Palmer's incredibly dangerous grab of Joel's legally-carried firearm looks to be about as dumb as one can get in such matters.

Joel also informs us that the MPD is now going to investigate itself in this matter.  Nope, no conflict of interest there.  In other news, a truck carrying a full load of whitewash was just seen pulling up to police headquarters.

(Full disclosure:  We are friends and frequent collaborators with Joel on various projects and causes.)
