Officer Joe Peterson’s Big Mouth

Posted March 11th, 2014 by Iron Mike

Threatened toKick in your door to get your guns’, – but finds himself suspended and under Branford Officer Joe Petersoninvestigation.

Thankfully, he represents a significant minority of sworn police officers.  But it only takes one or two – wrong time / wrong place – to ruin your day – or your life.

Branford, CT lies just east of New Haven – just over 28,000 souls – a nice community.  Officer Peterson made some unfortunate Facebook postings – while out on Worker’s Compensation, which alarmed [and outraged] Connecticut gun owners.

BranfordTheir gun-law sensitivity is already on a hair-trigger status since the Connecticut Legislature in a typically liberal rush to pass a feel-good law after Sandy Hook, – made owning any military-looking ‘assault rifle’ – and any ‘high-capacity’ magazine a felony.

The British retreatNerves are raw and tempers are near boiling.

Sadly, Officer Peterson must have been thinking he was General Gage – about to march on Lexington and Concord to seize ‘illegal arms’.

Some 49,000 Connecticut gun owners registered their firearms in compliance – a scene resembling subjects of a third-world dictatorship.

BUT, and estimated 300,000 citizens did NOT comply with the unconstitutional law.

Knowing that,  Officer Peterson took to Facebook with his threats to kick in people’s doors.

Not exactly that “Protect and Serve” image police departments work so hard to cultivate.

MAYBE, some good lawyers in Connecticut will file a lawsuit to nullify this law – before cops do get killed kicking in doors….  We can hope.

Meanwhile, Joe Peterson has some time on his hands – time to read our Constitution and study our History!

    Yeah, Officer Peterson, you do just that when and if you ever get off the disability gravy train, and doubtless you’ll take two in the chest and one in the head for a good, long rest.
