I am a Police Officer in NJ, where everything interesting is illegal. When I spot a knife being carried by an average citizen, I will generally make an inquiry, but not for law enforcement purposes. I am inquiring because I like knives. I find myself more often giving advice as to better hardware, sharpening, and lubrication! As for Paramedics, thank you for your efforts. We are on the same team. As in any profession, there are always a few idiots and wannabes. Don't judge all Security personnel because of some moron with an ego problem.
