I had a run in with the police

Post by dasmokeryaget » Mon Apr 04, 2011 7:21 am

I didn't get a chance to tell about this, but Feb 10 I was driving down I 40 and stopped at an exit to a small one horse town.

I pulled up to a convenience store and made a 5 minute call, then went inside for coffee and bathroom etc. I was very cordial to the lady. I went back out and ate two peices of chicken in the truck. I was there exactly 17 minutes when a cop pulled behind me.

He said the lady had called because she feared for her safety. Im really getting tired of these small town cops who have shed the "Protect and serve image" for the "special forces / black ops" image and attitude.

This guy was reeking of it. He asked the regular questions and I obliged. Then he started the intimidation tactics. "You look a little dazed. Are you doing drugs? Your eyes look red. are you drinking? Got any drugs? Weapons etc. Not bad questions but he wouldn't take "no" for an answer. He started badgering me about it.

Then he tried to do a whole body search. Thats when I got testy. I refused to allow him to search me or my truck. He tried to force a pat down and I told him to back off. "No warrant and no probable cause" he called for back up. I didnt get physical.

I told him I couldn't stop him from searching the truck but if he did I would file a formal complaint for violating my fourth amendment rights.
He backed off and waited for back up. He tried several more times to pat me down and I kept telling him to back off.

All in all we all went the go rounds for an hour aand they would never search the truck although they kept trying to circle and pat me down.

Dammit all. That's just plain wrong. Nothing but a power and control game because they knew they were in the wrong....so lets harrass and intimidate.

They finally said I was free to go. I said "I was always free to go. You had no right to detain me." The one cop got pretty jacked about that statement.

They turned to leave and one of them came back and said he saw my point and offered a weak apology for the actions of the others.

I just said "apology or not, Im still filing a complaint against all of you"

I did file it.

Maybe you should wear a kilt, like Dell.

I had a run in with a citizen

Post by Stan » Mon Apr 04, 2011 7:50 am

Back in February I had a run in with a cranky old guy, smoking a pipe and eating chicken. He wouldn't let me pat him down even though I used to work for the TSA and know how to do it really good. He made fun of my black BDU's and threw his dottle at me. Then he refilled his pipe right in FRONT of me and blew smoke in my face, and moonwalked back to his truck, spun around in a circle, and pointed his pipe at me in a superior manner. Then he filed a complaint on me. The Chief put me back on bicycle patrol and now I have to wear spandex pants and one of those goofy helmets. I hate that guy.

Wow.... what a bummer. Did you tell the cop he was harshing your buzz?

Well, I guess your searches in one horse towns for interesting pipes and/or tobacco don't always go as planned. A real shame that you had to go through that. I could see the reason behind a cop wanting to check a stranger out, especially if they've been in the parking lot for more than a few minutes. But, they took that way too far. Glad it ended ok.

Get used to Fourth Amendment rights being violated.. It's seems as if this is all just the beginning.

You're guilty until proven innocent. After all, you were in a parking lot for 17 minutes, so it's nobodies fault but your own. Submit.

Dude, he admitted that he was feeding on the flesh of a chicken. You trying to say that ain't suspicious?
