Here is one example: http://www.katu.com/news/local/Police-Man-with-gun-outside-Hillsboro-middle-school-no-threat-224502991.html?tab=video&c=y&mobile=y An unidentified man carrying long guns and handguns around school buildings in Oregon. He isn’t breaking any laws, so the cops can’t even ask him his name. But he is scaring the crap out of kids and grownups alike, because this looks a lot like Newtown, Columbine, etc.
Then there’s former police chief Mark Kessler: http://www.cnn.com/2013/09/20/us/pennsylvania-police-chief-fired/index.html who posted videos of him killing national leaders in effigy, and later assembled an armed mob to terrorize the town and its council when they objected to his actions. Said actions being technically legal, but obviously having a coercive and violent intent.
Thirdly, we have the lunatic who carried an AR-15 into a crowded store: http://www.policymic.com/mobile/articles/23647/joseph-kelley-displays-ar-15-rifle-at-jc-penney-is-this-appropriate. Said action, while technically legal, terrorized the rest of the shoppers and drove many of them from the store.
“If it was legal, what’s the problem?”, some of you might be saying. Two examples of legal-but-ominous actions that later turned out to have devastating results later because they weren’t delay with early on:
Number A: Hitler’s National Socialist party;
Letter 2: The 9/11 hijackers’ flight school attendance and strange behavior while there.
Think about it. As the saying goes, everyone’s a law-abiding citizen…until they cross the line by committing crimes and/or terrorist attacks.
