When Police Pull You or Your Loved Ones Over For a Dimmed Headlight, Expect to Be Sexually Harassed on Film

Police check woman for drugs after they pull her over for a dimmed headlight tell her to lift up her shirt and shake it

Seriously? Over a dimmed headlight?!? He might as well have said, “I’ll let you go if you make your boobs jiggle.”

Unless we want to live in a world where all of our mothers, daughters, sisters and aunts get treated as objects to be exploited by law enforcement, we need to put this kind of behavior to a sudden, complete and absolute END! There’s no excuse for the leeway that law enforcement officers get for some of this despicable behavior that they display.

Consider how many innocent people have been shot in their homes by officers raiding the wrong address?… How many dogs have been shot and how many innocent people have been terrified? It is needless, detrimental and becoming more frequent.  Or perhaps it’s always been this frequent but now that it has become easier to share information, we are just increasingly aware of an age-old problem. Either way, we need to put a stop to this kind ridiculous, unethical and disturbing behavior ASAP!

Police instruct woman to lift shirt and shake bra for drugs.

LAKELAND, FL — A young woman was driving when police pulled her over because of a dimmed headlight. From there it turned into a harassing encounter as police looked for contraband. They removed her from her vehicle and told her to pull up her shirt and shake her bra for them. Twice she complied to this demeaning request. Police also searched her vehicle for drugs, after she declined to allow a vehicle search.

Dash-cam video released Thursday showed the incident, which State Attorney Jerry Hill called “highly questionable” and “demeaning.” He said Chief Womack should be “alarmed” about deficiencies in training and supervision of traffic stops.

This may be an all-too common occurrence. The War on Drugs continues to ravage civil liberties and turn police against the people over the stupidest reasons imaginable.

Police Raid Wrong Home – Shoot Army Vets Dog | “Oops. My bad.”

Another day, another… wrong door raid where police shoot an unarmed man’s tied- up dog and then walk away like nothing happened pending “investigation”.

Nothing generally comes of these investigations. Often officers are put on administrative leave while they are investigated for a couple of months and then put back to work. This seriously happens about every month in the United States. You may not have any family affected by it yet, but as it keeps happening more and more frequently, you probably will.

If it were only pets, it wouldn’t be QUITE as traumatic and terrifying, but sometimes people are wrongly shot and killed during these raids that make us SOOO much safer. It is obvious that the frequency in which wrong door raids end up killing innocent people indicates that these raids should be illegal to begin with. Is there any justification for “law enforcement” to barge into a home, especially at night, where no violent or imminently threatening crime is taking place?

With places like New York making it a crime to “annoy” police, I am sure that we will be hearing more witness testimony that the police couldn’t avoid shooting someone because they were being antagonistic…

Americans need to rise up and put a stop to the abuse that is blatantly going on all around them every day before it is literally too late.

 

Police Raid Wrong Home – Shoot Army Vets Dog | “Oops. My bad.”

BUFFALO, NY — Adam Arroyo returned home from work to find his door busted down, and his apartment in shambles, riddled with bullet holes, and stained with blood. The government had paid him a visit while he was away.

Police were performing one of the many, many home raids that occur annually in the tyrannical Drug War.

Arroyo’s dog, Cindy, had been killed by police. But police raided the wrong home.

“She’s over here, chained up, and look at all these bullet holes man. Look at the blood right here,” Arroyo explained. “She was tied up in the kitchen like I tie her up every single day, and they shot her for no reason.”

“For police to wrongfully come into my house and murder my dog… It wasn’t that they felt threatened. No. They murdered my dog,” said Arroyo, beginning to tear up.

“That was my dog, man. That was my dog. They didn’t have to do that, you know. They didn’t have to do that.”

Arroyo now has to pay to have Cindy cremated. He also had to repair his door at his own cost and has had to miss work.

Indiana Legalizes Shooting Cops in Cases of “Unlawful Intrusion” into Citizens Homes

SPOOON!!! Of course it's a valid reason to shoot someone in their own home.

Hold onto your holsters, folks: shooting a cop dead is now legal in the state of Indiana.

Governor Mitch Daniels, a Republican, has authorized changes to a 2006 legislation that legalizes the use of deadly force on a public servant — including an officer of the law — in cases of “unlawful intrusion.” Proponents of both the Second and Fourth Amendments — those that allow for the ownership of firearms and the security against unlawful searches, respectively — are celebrating the update by saying it ensures that residents are protected from authorities that abuse the powers of the badge.

Others, however, fear that the alleged threat of a police state emergence will be replaced by an all-out warzone in Indiana.

Some people may think this is a recipe for disaster but I say it’s high time sometime was done about these unjustified and illegal wrong door invasions that kill innocent Americans on a daily basis.

In this blog alone, I can easily count a dozen people who have been the victims of either a wrong door invasion or a home invasion gone wrong, perpetrated by police or sheriff’s departments across the country. People’s dogs get shot, children get traumatized… well, for that matter, adults get traumatized.

If we allow this illegal practice of allowing authorities to barge into people’s homes, we can expect that sometimes they will be wrong, mistakes will be made and sometimes the wrong people will end up dead. It happens increasingly and it’s time to reverse this trend! I am personally under the belief that no law enforcement should have the authority to raid a private residence unless there is clear reason to believe that a violent or deadly crime is currently being committed or about to be committed.

So, I say, “Yay, Indiana!” If this new legislation makes law enforcement more reluctant to enter homes, maybe lives will be saved.

 

Indiana Legalizes Shooting Cops in Cases of “Unlawful Intrusion” into Citizens Homes

Published time: June 11, 2012 17:31

Under the latest changes of the so-called Castle Doctrine, state lawmakers agree “people have a right to defend themselves and third parties from physical harm and crime.” Rather than excluding officers of the law, however, any public servant is now subject to be met with deadly force if they unlawfully enter private property without clear justification.

“In enacting this section, the general assembly finds and declares that it is the policy of this state to recognize the unique character of a citizen’s home and to ensure that a citizen feels secure in his or her own home against unlawful intrusion by another individual or a public servant,” reads the legislation.

Although critics have been quick to condemn the law for opening the door for assaults on police officers, supporters say that it is necessary to implement the ideals brought by America’s forefathers. Especially, argue some, since the Indiana Supreme Court almost eliminated the Fourth Amendment entirely last year. During the 2011 case of Barnes v. State of Indiana, the court ruled that a man who assaulted an officer dispatched to his house had broken the law before there was “no right to reasonably resist unlawful entry by police officers.” In turn, the National Rifle Association lobbied for an amendment to the Castle Doctrine to ensure that residents were protected from officers that abuse the law to grant themselves entry into private space.

“There are bad legislators,” the law’s author, State Senator R. Michael Young (R) tells Bloomberg News.“There are bad clergy, bad doctors, bad teachers, and it’s these officers that we’re concerned about that when they act outside their scope and duty that the individual ought to have a right to protect themselves.”

Governor Daniels agrees with the senator in a statement offered through his office, and notes that the law is only being established to cover rare incidents of police abuse that can escape the system without reprimand for officers or other persons that break the law to gain entry.

“In the real world, there will almost never be a situation in which these extremely narrow conditions are met,”Daniels says. “This law is not an invitation to use violence or force against law enforcement officers.”

Officers in Indiana aren’t necessarily on the same page, though. “If I pull over a car and I walk up to it and the guy shoots me, he’s going to say, ‘Well, he was trying to illegally enter my property,’” Sergeant Joseph Hubbard tells Bloomberg. “Somebody is going get away with killing a cop because of this law.”

“It’s just a recipe for disaster,” Indiana State Fraternal Order of Police President Tim Downs adds. “It just puts a bounty on our heads.”
