From the Article we get this statement.
Hwang was carrying a gun in a holster at the small of his back. He has a permit to carry the gun and said Wednesday afternoon that he had done nothing wrong.
Of course the liberal idiot Mayor had to get involved with his gun hating ways. He's of the opinion that only the police and military should have arms of any kind. That makes him a supporter of a police state.
"“Do we need guns in theaters? Do we need guns at Batman?” DeStefano asked."
Well, it would have been nice if one or two in Aurora would have. They could have made a difference, we will never know because the theater was a gun free zone. The Mayor would be proud. The theater in New Haven was not a gun free criminal empowerment zone.
"At 10:11 p.m. Tuesday, nearly 20 officers and two sergeants responded to the Criterion-Bow Tie movie theaters on Temple Street, where staff had reported a man with a handgun was inside one of the theaters"
Damn that's a lot of cops. Who was minding the store while all the coppers were at the movies? Over 20 people to check on and arrest a man that has done nothing wrong. Of course they could have called out the SWAT team and gunned hi down where he sat. Maybe they had the night off.
" “Chief Esserman decided that he was going to be arrested.”
Esserman later denied that charge. He said he arrived at the theater after the arrest took place."
The chief doesn't have a radio or cell phone? in 2012? Please. These liberal asshats get some power and think they are God like. As soon as the call came in the chief decided there would be a arrest. Why send so many cops for one man. What would have been wrong with a couple patrolmen calmly talking to the man. It's not like he was waving his gun around and screaming some whacked out something.
"Fishbein said that based on what he had read and heard about Hwang’s arrest, the incident could result in Hwang suing the city for wrongful arrest."
Good. And he should sue both the chief and the mayor personally. Too bad being a dick isn't a crime. Of course if it was, we would ave to build more prisons.
I see that the good mayor is a member of Mayors Against
