Warning: Infuriating Video. Veteran Unlawfully Disarmed, and Arrested.

“Based on your future behavior, from this point on, your may receive different contact.”

July 6, 2014

Mack Worley is a veteran of the United States Air Force. He honorably served his country for almost 6 years before being medically retired.

On June 29, 2013 Worley was unlawfully detained, disarmed and arrested for legally open carrying his rifle in Vancouver, WA.

He was charged with trespassing, despite being on a public sidewalk. He was also charged with “displaying a weapon” even though open carry is legal in the state of Washington.

Worley is currently fighting these charges.

This is how liberty dies…..

  • Enrique Elizondo

    He was not shot because he was white right?

    • Dennis

      No Enrique. He was not shot because he was smart enough to put down his gun when the police told him to

  • Daniel McCullar

    And he needs to go after the arresting officer with 3 counts of “Violation of Rights While Under Color of Law”. This is a federal crime committed by the officers and their ignorance of the law should be no excuse!

    • Dennis

      First of all when a citizen has a concern and calls the police then the police have to check it out. In this case with a person walking down the sidewalk with a gun concerned citizens who called the police. The police came and had him put down the gun and cleared it. They asked the person his name and why he had the gun. He refused to answer both. So they released him since he seemed like the regular type of a**hole they normally run across during the day. The guy started to leave then started back on the property. The officer stopped him and told him he could not go on property because the people don’t want him there. THAT IS THEIR RIGHT FOLKS. When he insisted on going back anyway he was arrested. He made the decision not the police.

        You are wrong, Dennis. He left the private property and was on a public side walk walking towards where his vehicle was. He was leaving even though he wasn’t finished. He was compling, but the police told him with weapons drawn that he could not go that way. He said that his vechile was that way and they still told him he couldn’t go that way. At that point he tried reasoning with them because they where being ridiculous. They used that as an excuse to arrest him. Not only this, they also took every round out of his magazine and left them in the dirt. If they wanted him to leave so much then why did they do that. It took him some time to pick them up naot to mention that they then couldn’t be put in the magazine until clean.
        The police on this occasion acted unprofessionally and imaturely.
        Know the facts before you write down your half story nonsense.

      • Misha3333

        The information is quite clear and available yet you make up your own story. That he never gave his name is irrelevant. He does not need to. He is allowed under the law to do what he did. He didn’t trespass because none of the owners or their representatives told him to leave. As you state yourself. A member of the public called. The police used that as the excuse to ultimately arrest him, all be it unlawfully.

    Then the scumbags pull a treasonous ass kangaroo court on the man…and convict him when the maggot ass traitors never had ANY jurisdiction…..

    Aggravated felony breach of this mans peace…WITHOUT CAUSE.

    BOTH felonies there were so many felonies committed against this man it is NOT fucking funny…

    St. John v. McColley 653 F.Supp.2d 1155 (2009)
    “…lawful possession of a loaded firearm in a crowded place could not, by itself, create a reasonable suspicion sufficient to justify an investigatory detention.”

    US v. Ubiles, 224 F.3d 213 (2000)
    “…it is not a crime to possess a firearm… even when standing in a crowd. Second, the anonymous tipster who approached the authorities had said nothing that would indicate that Ubiles possessed the gun unlawfully (e.g., without registration); that he was committing or about to commit a crime; or that he posed a threat to the officers or anyone in the crowd. Therefore, the stop and subsequent search were unjustified because the precondition for a Terry stop was not present in this case.”

    “Alamogordo police officers who were dispatched to the Theater in response to a call from Theater manager… Mr. St. John’s lawful possession of a loaded firearm in a crowded place could not, by itself, create a reasonable suspicion sufficient to justify an investigatory detention.” SOURCE: St. John v. McColley 653 F.Supp.2d 1155 (2009)

    “More importantly, where a state permits individuals to openly carry firearms, the exercise of this right, without more, cannot justify an investigatory detention. Permitting such a justification would eviscerate Fourth Amendment protections for lawfully armed individuals in those states.” – Verbatim, US v Black

    US v. Deberry–legal firearms cannot be used as reason for stopping a person…

    Delaware v. Prouse—– cannot be detained without suspicion of criminal activity

    Terry v. Ohio—-leo’s cannot legally seize a weapon without reasonable suspicion…..

    Sue the living fuck out of these treasonous terrorist armed robbing scumbag Nazis they all deserve a fucking noose…..

  • Buddy Jeans

    Don’t worry. If justice prevails, some gang banger will get ’em when they’re not looking. Giving cops a bad name across the country. And you wonder why many of us think many of you are scum.

  • Rob

    Sorry, this civilian is a DOOSH BAG with a capitol DOOSH. Everything could have gone smoother if he would just have cooperated. They do have the right to ask him for his ID if he is carrying a weapon, so in retrospect, HE was wrong. They have to verify that he is allowed to carry a weapon. He is doing this for attention. It is people like this that give cops and humanity a bad name.

    • Anthony Huss

      Rob, we’re coming to bust into your house one night this week. We’ll scream and brandish our guns as we endanger you and your family, once we ransack your place and violate the Constitution we’ll settle down a bit,…provided we we’re satisfied there is now illegal activity.

      Just focus on the ends and ignore the means. You’ll feel safer in no time!

      • Rob

        yeah, good luck with that…

        • Anthony Huss

          Sure thing. All we need is a badge to justify our criminal acts,…hell with a badge-licker like you you’ll probably shine our boots while they’re on your neck. Shoooot, Follow your own advice Rob, just smile as we trample your constitutional rights so it’ll be easier for us to do. We’ll probably take your kids and wife with us too since you appear to be a danger to society…they ain’t coming back.

          P.S. It’s “Douche bag”, not DOOSH BAG, as in “Rob is an insufferable douche bag who acts tough when a role reversal puts him in the position of Mack Worley. Douche bag hypocrite.”

          • Rob

            All you have to to literally go read the civil rights and bill of rights and figure out that you are all wrong, you all think that you have all these freedoms when in fact, you don’t.

  • Andy

    No, I don’t wish to help this person. Had he obeyed the police officers request, there wouldn’t be a problem. This person is the problem.
