Hoplite Armor: Threatened By Cops For Calling Out The Cops

BY Herschel Smith
6 months, 4 weeks ago

Hoplite Armor.

My name is Lyman Bishop. I’m the Founder and CEO of Hoplite Armor, as well as the engineer responsible for the design and development of all our custom armor solutions. I’m also the man responsible for posting various things online that have recently offended a lot of police officers.

First let me say I am not anti police as many would have you believe, but rather I put the the American people first in every circumstance. I believe in the United States Constitution and as such I recognize that it is We the People who are, or should be, in full control of this nation. If We the People take issue with our government or law enforcement, it is our right, even our sacred duty, to speak out boldly and without concern for the consequences brought on by would be tyrants.

Over the last few days I have been slandered, lied about, conspired against and even threatened with physical harm, by police officers, for speaking out against the events in Florida where police opened fire on 2 criminals in stand still traffic using civilian vehicles as human shields, resulting in the Deaths of 2 innocent people; UPS driver Frank Ordonez and Family Man Richard Cutshaw.

The idea that such a thing could happen on US soil is almost beyond belief, but what’s worse is the position of many of those in law enforcement who show no remorse and target those of us who speak out.

Whenever the people stand up against police misconduct we are told to mind our own business, to stay in our lane or that we are Monday Morning Quarterbacks. We are told that unless we have done the job ourselves we have no right to speak out. This is heresy! We the People have every right to speak up against anything that takes place in this country, or for that matter, anything on the planet. Make no mistake, this event will prove to be the defining moment where people take sides. Youre either a free citizen of the United States or a slave to the tyranny closing in around us.

We the People are the single most powerful and influential group of people in human history. We are better educated, and better armed than any group of people that has ever existed and the world would be wise not to stand in our way. That includes our so called authorities here at home.

For too long we have sat idly by and allowed our nation to be picked apart by vultures. Now is the time to stand up and be counted. For years I have felt called by God to run for Governor of Montana, in order to safeguard the rights of the people but I had to wait for the right time. That time has finally come, and I would encourage all of you who are like minded to do the same in your states. What office you seek is unimportant. Only that you get involved and fight for the people. Its time we take back our country and our rightful place in the world.

My position is simple, the rights of the people shall not be infringed. If I am elected we will have constitutional carry for every law abiding citizen on day one. I will also nullify the National Firearms Act. The very thought that our rights should be held hostage, subject to bureaucratic paperwork and fees is an abomination to our traditions and our culture of freedom and individual liberties.

Where we go from here is not up to me. I will leave it to you, the People, to decide our fate, but I can promise you one thing. There are NO other candidates, in Montana or anywhere else, that are willing to draw a line in the sand and put themselves in between you and tyranny like I will.

God bless America

Mr. Bishop is the author of this, linked (embedded) by me earlier (I wish I had known who to credit, but didn’t).

That thin blue line, you know.  Those cops who would threaten this man are ensuring that the people hate them and see them as the enemy.  Those are the unintended consequences of failing to police your own people.

Remember.  These cops used citizens as human shields during this brief skirmish.  Let that sink in.

Let something else sink in if you’re one of the cops who threatened Mr. Bishop.  He isn’t your problem – we are.  His work was linked (embedded) by me.  Get angry at me.  Threaten me, so I can turn your ass in.  Make a comment below so I’ll know your IP address.

And if you want to give Mr. Bishop some of your business, here is his web site.

    Herschel, I surely appreciate the graphic, but wouldn’t it be even greater if instead of the term “CIVILIAN” on the graphic it would say “CITIZEN”? It reminds me of an exchage I read about where an officer kept using the “civilian” at a city council meeting. The guy calmly took the explanation/ dressing down, then pointed straight at the cop to say: “I’m not a civilian, I’m a citizen. And so are you.”

    WNC greetings my man.

    @Jake,

    I agree. Fixed.

    Make no mistake. The failure of law enforcement to police their own ranks, and be held to the same standard and laws as we are, will only end one way. With police and government being held as domestic enemies of the people.

    I’m not a pilot either, but I know a plane crash when I see one.

    The delivery man was shot……I bet when the results of thefire arm exam comes back, they will show a po lice projectle did him in….but….maybe not. Remember..if a po lice applicant is jackass BEFORE he pins his badge on…..he will still be a JACKASS after.

    Mr. Lyman has my vote. I couldn’t have said it better. I have cops in my family, and we go ’round and ’round about this stuff, but in the end they always say to never trust a cop. They do not even trust each other. Let that soak in.

    And Epstein didn’t kill himself.

    Herschel….good article…started following this on war on guns
    Ok…I live in Montana….how do I get in touch with Mr. Lyman? Let’s get the ball rolling…never too soon to get started. That boob Bullock is termed out. No Virginia’s here!!

    “Civilian?”
    Wouldn’t “Peon” better express the attitude of the Ordnungspolizei toward the Mundanes?

    Steady Steve – That will be inevitable if they really ARE domestic enemies of We The Peons.

    …That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, …, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it…

    The same is necessarily true of the police. Following many decades of police departments coast to coast failing — in some cases refusing — to take out their own trash, the same police are shocked — shocked, I tell you — when citizens decide to shoot back.

    No wonder the left wants us all disarmed.

    What is needed here in America is a return to Sir Robert Peel’s ‘Policing by Consent’ – we do not consent to a police that has become militarized.

    Well damn. Those redline lines-of-fire and the listed vehicle occupants certainly does put the whole argument of “walk a mile in my shoes” into a far differant perspective. To the LE who had taken issue with Mr. Bishops post, would those same officers be that vocal if their family was in the SUV in the upper left, to be a meat backstop for fellow officers also not using situational awareness? Would they be willing to hide behind their own families to “do the mission”?

    SORRY…..Mr. Bishop….
