Six Legal Ways for Cops to Abuse You

July 13th, 2010 No comments

I ran across the article 6 Completely Legal Ways The Cops Can Screw You while writing another article today and found it quite alarming. It makes it clear that the United States we live in today is by the government, for the government, and against the citizens and US Constitution.

A quick summary:

  1. The police can take your things, sell them, and keep the proceeds. All they have to do is state they suspect your property was used while a crime was committed, even if they don’t think you committed the crime. They don’t have to charge or convict anybody of a crime to do this, just state a suspicion.
  2. Police in Ohio can give you a ticket for speeding and get a conviction against you with no objective speed measurements, only an “expert observation” that you were speeding.
  3. Police in Texas can arrest you for drinking even if you are of legal age in a legally operated bar. This law has reportedly been used to harass gays and Hispanics by rounding them up in bars and arresting them.
  4. Police in Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Hampshire, and several other states can arrest you for filming or video recording them and confiscate the films and recordings, even if they are breaking the law and abusing somebody. Nobody seems to have considered how this may make legal surveillance cameras suddenly illegal if the police show up.
  5. In Washington, D.C., police can arrest women who carry more than two condoms. They can legally assume any woman carrying more than two is a prostitute.
  6. In Ohio, police can obtain your identifying information including name, address, and social security number without your permission and then use it just like an identity thief. One woman found this out after the cops used her name, address, and social security number to pay and plant an undercover stripper in her community while other cops watched the performances live and via the Internet. They are under no obligation to clean up the mess they made of your identity.

28-year-old Cleveland mother Valencia Davis left her 2-year-old baby Nayla alone in their home. The baby suffers from neural problems and cerebral palsy and therefore is fed via feeding tube, but the feeding bag was empty. She was reportedly born healthy but then developed her medical problems after “swallowing a scrunchie” as an infact. That sounds like child neglect that led to severe injury, but further details aren’t available to us.

Knowing that the mother is irresponsible, the baby’s father James was concerned about his kids and went to the house to check on them. He found that the mother had taken her other two children and left the disabled 2-year-old alone inside the house with nobody to care for her.
