OSU Police Draw Their Weapons On And Detain Peaceful Protester For Being Conspicuously Unarmed

leave a comment » Police Detain OSU Student for Participating in Empty Holster Protest

Newbern, the president of Buckeyes for Concealed Carry, was taken forcibly into police custody just after 8:30 p.m., while he was standing at the front of the crowd wearing an empty holster, which was clearly visible on his belt, and with his hands crossed in front of his chest.

A police report released on Thursday indicates two officers drew their firearms before approaching Newbern and removing him from the vigil. They searched and questioned Newbern and confiscated his personal belongings, including his empty holster and camera case, before placing him handcuffed in the back of a cruiser for 30 minutes.

Apparently on campus you not only give up your Second Amendment rights, but your First Amendment rights as well.
