False Arrest of Gunowner Costs Taxpayers $25,000

Jim Mapes

Careless police arrested Jim Mapes, who has a concealed carry permit, at a movie theater. They accused him of brandishing a weapon, which means to wave it. However, the gun never left the holster. The false charge was later dropped after Mapes was held for four hours. If the officers had checked their statutes, they would have noticed that open carry preceded Colorado statehood. There’s no word if they’ll be disciplined for wasting public money.
