When your policy violates the law...

Mark Marchiafava was arrested for opening carrying a firearm -- even though it's legal to do so.  He sued the city that arrested him, and received a significant settlement (the exact amount is confidential).
After his arrest, Marchiafava said, Police Chief Bill Landry told other people: ?We have a policy of arresting anybody carrying any type of firearm without a concealed-gun permit."
And yet...
?We will follow the law as prescribed,? Landry said, adding that the law permits carrying a firearm in an unconcealed holster. But Landry will not discuss the case further.
Pity it takes a lawsuit and a substantial out-of-court settlement to get police officers to know and follow the law.
