Our end on FM you can jump in there. And you can talk about whatever you want with our other listeners some of whom are libertarians some of whom aren't it's an open, forum for chat and. It's free and it's there around the clock discord dot dot FM we were talking with David in New Mexico who is telling about we're talking about kind of police people who are in impersonating the police and the, fear that some Legitimately. Have when it's one thing? You're getting pulled over by an, actual cop who might beat. You, within, an, inch, of your life, and, then, there's. Also the concern that you. Might be getting pulled over by somebody who's not a cop who might do who, knows what to you so you're, telling, us a story about when you were getting pulled. Over in an area in which had you pulled over immediately. You would have been alone with this person who you weren't sure if it was an actual. Cop so you dialed up, nine one one and connected to a dispatcher and can continue driving onto an area that you said was, at least a mile. Or so away that you knew would be more populated would be like a lighted parking lot potentially some people around to witness tell us more about that situation please Yeah I knew.

Pull their guns out and point them at me and Right He didn't do fast enough. Mark? Right that's what it comes down.
