I listen to Viva and Barnes podcast often . Viva Frei who is a Canadian civil rights lawyer says it is illegal for cops in their country to be used to enforce public health laws. So I am guessing eventually that Pastor and a lot of others are going to get paid if they can manage to source enough money for legal defense and a follow up civil lawsuit.
The problem is that the cops don't' care since they won't suffer any loss financially. The pastor has to post bail and money for a legal defense.
I was watching a few YT vids in open carry states. Carrier was following all legal OC laws. Yet the cop didn't feel so, so he was arrested and guns taken away. He later won in court and won extra. But it took lots of time. But for every bad OC video, there are also good ones where the cops know the law and followed it.
One of my favs is when the OCer told the cop he can't make him show him his rifle. The cops response was "that's why I asked if you wouldn't mind letting me check it".
