You need a concealed carry permit to carry ANY weapon concealed. If an officer comes in contact with you they have every legal right to search you in order to ensure their safety. If your not a criminial why would it matter to you if they want to ensure scene safety?

If a poloce officer asks to search you they do not have probable cause. They can frisk you without permission, but if they feel something suspicious that gives them probable cause. This guy told the police they had his permission and admitted he had a weapon. He should have denied the search in hopes the pat down yielded nothing.

If he were smart that's what he would have done... Then again if he were smart he wouldn't have a felony case in the courts and be out on bail wandering the streets with a knife...

If I'm not flagging down the police , or if u didn't get a call about suspicious things happening in the neighborhood them y would the police turn around and just harass someone because Waukesha city police is on bs

Danielle you say this is harassment and BS? It is 2:40 AM and a person is walking around wearing a dark hoodie and you ask why the police harass him? I am sure it is because people wearing all dark clothing at 2:40 in the morning are just out for a stroll and don't look supspicious at all. Besides with pending felony cases this "esteemed citizen" might be known to the officer as someone who might be up to no good. I give the Officer props for stopping and investigating. Possibly saved some cars from being broken into, maybe even yours Danielle.
