In keeping with yesterday’s post of how law enforcement deals with challenging situations, police in California seemed a bit too aggressive in the case below. Perhaps they followed procedure … but if innocent, an incident like this can be frightening. Should police have handled John and Martha King differently?
John King shared his “guns drawn/detained in handcuffs” incident in an AOPA video conference call. What we learn is that a reassigned N-number and lousy research by the government’s El Paso Intelligence Center left local police with a black-eye and a pilot and his wife shaken.
Do you know the history of the planes and N-numbers you fly before planning an IFR flight?
