I agree with Whalewatcher.
Part of the problem is the demonization of guns and firearms by our media! One of the areas I patrolled a township we had a newly arrived resident from Cleveland who was freaked out when she saw men drive up at the end of her street and enter the woods some with bows some with guns! She called 911! When it was explained that it was hunting season and hunters were allowed to hunt deer with bows and squirrels with guns she said Dont we have laws against this! We said you live in the township and guns and hunting are allowed! The officers comment about someone calling in a complaint was a lame reason to push this arres although the gentlemen did push the envelope some on his ownt! They will most likely pay to make this go away!!

This won't end well for the officers and the city of Tempe, IMHO.
I'm a steadfast supporter of law enforcement; however, the is what gives ALL LEO's a back eye. I agree with Robocop as to the nature of the punishment.
How many zeros would you like on this check from the citizens of Tempe.
I read about this and that idiot police officer better hope that he has some great insurance or that he is not named in a lawsuit. The arrest was illegal and there is not such crime as this "rude firearm' thing. No probably cause to arrest and no grounds for any resisting charge. They also held his son unlawfully and could easily be charged with false imprisonment of a minor as they held him without cause and questioned him under duress and in captivity unless and until he answered their questions! Tempe better hope hey have some very deep pockets over this is all I can say. I completely support my brother LEO's, even when they make an error in judgement but this? This is a crass display of illegal behaviour and brutalizing a father and son. Both Officers need to be severely reprimanded or possibly fired.
