The Officer was out of line.

The question is do you want to become a target for enforcement actions.

Local LEOs especially Sheriff Departments can make your life a nightmare if they want to.

I know this from personnal experience.

In a relatively rural county you have little recourse.

And this is the fundamental flaw in our current LE system in America. LE's run in a network above the law. That power can make us maginally safer or lead to the corruption we hear about regularly.

This said, I do highly respect the individual LEO's who do this relatively thankless jobs daily within the law. They should be commended for living under the law. I just wish the brotherhood part was not so strong that many look the other way in an unjustified arrest, harassing or shooting.
