The important reasons for following these procedures aren't the legal ones, they're the safety ones. (Including both the basic danger inherent in discharging a firearm in a populated area, plus second order accountability type effects, etc.)Of course, you should follow what you must for legal reasons. It's generally not worth the pain to not do so.
IMO, holding the vigil just goes to show how F'd up this country is. If they have an issue with what the cop did, then they need to file protests, or protest at the station over it. Holding a vigil over a freakin animal is just... Well, more than just nuts.
I bet the people that organized it, and were the majority of the people on the vigil, are either anti-gun or are vegans.
Would it make you tough guys feel better if we called it a protest instead of a vigil?Not really, I don't know about the "worthless hippies" part but in general I think this whole "vigil" nonsense over the killing of an elk within city limits really points out how ridiculous our society has become.
If you don't care about the unnecessary and illegal killing of an animal, fine, but mocking people who disagree with you is pretty childish. A society where people defend a law enforcement officer poaching game inside city limits is far more ridiculous than anti-gun vegans.
