    I do believe the police officer now they need to learn all the laws and the statues of Florida about open open carry or concealed carry before they make a fool of them self by not knowing the law that there should be obeyed they need more training people that’s all I got to say very sad make them look like

  2. That only applies only when you are away from the public, Not in public. They are pushing the envelope….

  3. I could not stand to finish the video. The officer was wrong. But the dude that was recording is a whiny b****.
    All that dude kept on doing was whining. Even his buddies was telling to be quiet you can’t not kept us go whining
