Take a look at this story
. This nice old church lady got handcuffed and tossed in jail for
supposedly looting. The alledged crime amounts to just 60 dollars, and the owner of the store has told the police she wasn't involved, but
regardless she's in a state prison on 50k bail, set way above the maximum allowed by the state, by a judge over a telephone.
The facts of the case don't add up at all, this woman had a trunk full of food and a motel room to stay in. She paid for it all by credit card.
How many other cases just like this one are going on? How many others have been victimized by a justice system that doesn't give a damn about people
The cops should be disciplined, the judge should be disrobed in a public place and paddled all the way out of town, and the poor woman should be given
restitution for lost time and the injustice of the whole affair.
It's stories just like this that drive a wedge between law enforcement and the communities they're supposed to work in. They're only making it
harder on themselves, and that applies to everyone involved, hoodlums and officers. But damnit, the taxpayers don't pay the hoodlums to do what they
do! The cops are first and foremost accountable to the constituents. This is a disgrace.
So if a cop in Louisiana isn't knocking an old lady to the ground one day, he's arresting one on bogus charges the next.
