And he's a Korean War veteran that worked a police officer in the town for something like 50 years before semi-retiring to a crossing guard gig. If they can ERPO someone like that they can Red Flag anyone.so he identifies a breach in their security because their school resource officer abandons his post and and the crossing guard is the felon? Only in Mass...
It is, but for the rest of the country it is ERPO. They are trying to catch up to MA and don’t even know it. If you have a Dept such as TPD, it is actually worse then ERPO. Anyone can “flag” you.Everyone is tossing the red flag complaints around, but this actually looks like a revocation based on suitability. There's nothing in the article about the TPD getting an ERPO order.
This highlights the extreme way in which "suitability" can be abused by the licensing authority.
It doesn’t matter what you call it. Whether they justify their actions based on a suitability law, red flag or ERPO law, or no law at all, it’s governmental oppression and infringement of numerous basic rights. It’s unconstitutional. And it’s immoral.This wasn’t an ERPO. Just good ol’ fashioned lack of suitability.
But the police who actually took action, they’re good to go? They take orders from waiters? They are incapable of telling her to piss off? They should just immediately steal all his guns on the word of a waitress without taking a single investigatory step first?I hope all the residents/and visitors of the restaurant that employs this "waitress", boycotts the place until said waitress is FIRED.
