My point is that I am going to the extreme of safety and telling them even if they ask me what time it is. We all know that 99% of police are good, reasonable people. I don't want to run into a cop like the one in Canton (who honestly does not have the right temperament to be a LEO).
Do you have to yell across the street "hey, I have a permit and I am armed", clearly no. But if they talk to me in uniform I am going to tell them.

for the record i am not in LE. but have a few friends and several family members who are.
and when you are being investigated or interrogated, you will know it. irregardless they can't violate your rights and if they do even a somewhat decent attorney will have it thrown out.
a casual conversation would be discussing baseball or the weather. where does an investigation figure into that?
are there some that are bad cops and shouldn't be allowed a gun and a badge? yes there are. so how does that change anything? and what bearing does it have on anything about whether a person should inform them they are carrying? smart thing to do is to have an attorney that can handle your business and maybe keep one on retainer if you are going to carry.
as much as i support and respect LEO's, they still will respect and honor my rights. which means, anyone that thinks they will or can violate my rights as a citizen, will deal with my attorney.
