    If I recall correctly he said his weapon was in it. He didn't say exactly but when asked where his gun was he pointed to it and said right here. What a strange place for an off duty to keep a weapon or bug.

      Yea, I would have kept it holstered.

            I see a guy with a fanny pack, I'm going to assume a gun is in there. I've seen packs sold specifically to carry a concealed weapon, and seen them use in person for the sam reason. I don't understand the shock...?

                Are you serious...? There are thousands of LEO's that carry their weapons in their fanny packs. They make fanny packs just for that actually.

                  Among non-LEO's, yeah, a lot. It just doesn't come to mind. I use a Tommy's Gun Pack sometimes, like when I go jogging or on rare occasion for a quick trip to the store if I don't have a holster on. I haven't come up with a better solution for when I go running.

                    Just to clear up some misconceptions.

                    1. The FHP or any of its troopers were not involved. The gentleman who did the stop was an ORANGE COUNTY (FL) DEPUTY SHERIFF.

                    2. The person stopped was not an off duty deputy. He was a police major with Metro-Dade (now Miami-Dade) police department.

                    This was posted a year ago.

                      I'm not finding any fault with the uniformed officer in the video. He did the job he's supposed to do. The undercover and/or off-duty officer (offender) did everything wrong.

                      Any officer, actually any person, should know not to snatch away the license and later run off as the stopped individual did. I think he brought everything on himself.

                      I was stopped about two months ago for what the officer called improper passing. I don't think it was personally but I listened patiently, identified myself appropriately, and the officer walked away with a mutual exchange of "be safe." No harm. No foul. Now, if I had argued with him or done anything else foolish then I'm sure there would have been another result.

                        +1. He brought it on himself.... I get stopped a lot for my heavy foot. 90% of the time I am let go with either a written or verbal warning simply because I am as professional as I can get with the officer. Get as far off the road as possible, dome light on, engine off, both hands on wheel, yes/no sir. I never ask why I'm being stopped. I know I'm speeding. When asked if I know why my reply is usually yes sir, 77 in a 55 (example). Point is the off duty should have known better. Totally his fault. The Trooper was professional to the T.
