    He was stopped by the cops for running a red light. For some reason they thought they should search his car which had a gun and ammo which he is allowed to have having a security clearance .. He said he was a Navy seal. Instead of checking that out with the government they sent him to Bellevue for being crazy.. well he really was and the navy came and got him. Is this how NY treats our heroes

    That's New York for ya. I'm sure more details will come out ... like why did they feel they had the right to search his car?

    It is an unfortunate fact that - if everyone who claimed to be a SEAL actually was a SEAL - the SEALs would outnumber every other branch of the services. You can usually tell the SEALs by the fact that they don't tell you they are or were. They're a secretive little bunch of ass-kickers.

    I'd like all the facts before I form a definite opinion.

    When I was in the Navy cops treated me very well. Got out of tickets a couple times when I was in uniform.

    I assume he told them he was a seal after they did a supposed illegal search of his vehicle and found his gun.

    Speaking from experience, there are some looney toons on the streets. Now if he reeked of alcohol, had several missing teeth, dirty fingernails, smelled and looked like he hadn't showered in weeks, who knows? I'll have to look it up and see a photo. We've all heard bullshit stories of people claiming that they served in the military. And each and every time they tell you a story, it gets more sensational.

    I just don't think that they would have taken him to the hospital, unless they thought that he was crazy. He may have been a clean cut guy; but if he was having conversations with imaginary people....sorry....Navy Seal or not...he's sick.

    I worked as a dispatcher for central communications before I got into EMS. I don't recall there being a query database on our computer system to check service records. And vehicle stops are among the most dangerous parts of a police officer's job, as many officers get shot on traffic stops. They must have felt threatened or that he needed help, or they wouldn't have done what they did. That one little ride, cost them at least 45 minutes worth of documentation.

    He should have known that N.Y. city has strict gun control laws.
    Part of it was his fault for not having his documentation with him.
    If he had done so, then he would not have gotten into the trouble that he did.
    Personal responsibility people.
    Now illegal search and seizure is a totally different matter.
    There was no explanation given as to why the police decided to search his car.
