  • Lawful order?

    Hey folks,
    Every now and then I see on tv where they use the term "Lawful Order" What exactly is a lawful order and can you provide an example of both a lawful order and un-lawful order? Obviously telling somebody to punch somebody in the face would not be a lawful order but what would an un-lawful order be that sounded more realistic.

    Thanks

    A lawful order is an order which does not require violation of law, or violation of reasonable morals/ethics.

    Vice-versa, an order that requires violation of one of those three things is unlawful.

    Quite simple.

      Did you happen to use the SEARCH FUNCTION?

        Thanks for both answers, I did use the search first and am not sure how I missed that thread.

        Holy cow do people get worked up over that topic, people were getting angry over theory rather than things they have actually been asked to do by a cop. In my 43 years the only thing a cop has ever asked me to do was to "sign here".

        I stand educated . . . and then some. Lol

          It's refreshing to see someone actually ask a question here and learn a little at the same time. Glad you stopped by.
