“He took my handgun back to his car and ran it,” Oliva said. “When he came back I saw he had completely disassembled the weapon. He ordered me to pop my trunk.”
The officer, Oliva said, dumped the gun parts into his trunk, and
then pushed the rounds out of his magazine, one-by-one, into the trunk.
For the offense of having a carry permit.
Coral Gables Police Chief Edward J. Hudak, Jr. said his officer did nothing wrong.
“He saw the concealed firearms license, which led him to a heightened
sense to know the driver was armed,” Hudak said. “Could there have been
a more polite way to handle it? I would be more than happy to refer
this to IA, and they would do an investigation from top to bottom before
it comes to my level.”
The police chief said his officer was well within his rights and department policy.
Then your version of 'How to be a cop' needs serious revision. You're an idiot, and a dangerous one.
Really? You can't imagine a 'more polite way to handle it'? Then you're not just an idiot, you're a fool.
Note to self: if in Florida, stay out of Coral Gables so as not to run afoul of what they consider good police work.
