OK, I just read through the entire thread and my head now hurts. Did the guy instigate it, don’t know as not there put sounds like he did. Does
that then entitle any law enforcement agency out there the abilities to disregard our rights? It is not a question of who started it (since I will
agree that has not worked since grade school), it is a question of them just taking our rights away because they can!
As for the dog alerting the board patrol officers to obtain suspicion, my first question what type of training did the dog have? Anyone who works
with dogs in any type of enforcement from law to military knows that you can only train a dog to do one type of search, thus we have rescue dogs, drug
searching dogs, explosive searching dogs and so on. Thus if the dog on seen had alerted them to a person in the vehicle my response would be yea
what do think I am. The dog can not tell you how many people are in a vehicle as if it looked into the window counted five people and then noticed
six different scents and then said hay stop that guy he is transporting illegal aliens!! So what type of training had this dog had, not that it
really matters at this point since in the end the guy was tortured, and if you don’t think so what do you call it when one refuses to do what you
want and then you resort to violence?
All I know is that I would have stopped, answered any reasonable questions politely, and if they wanted to search my vehicle I would ask why politely,
since they do have to inform you of why you are being searched (before they do it not after). If they just told me because the dog said you had
something in your car I would say no get a warrant, I’ll wait right here with you patently until you get one. Would I still get the same
treatment….I think I would, and that is the point. When is it going to be enough America? When are you going to wake up and defend your rights?
Everyone knows that freedom is not free, and we will have to continue to fight to keep our rights!!
I might do it differently then this guy but I will not let my rights and freedoms get trampled on because I want to feel protected, and the truth is
they can’t protect us. If walked over to the house down the street, knocked on the door, he answered and shot him, stabbed him, or even attacked him
in any way what is the police, or any other law enforcement agency going to do to stop me? Nothing they would come looking for me, arrest me yet the
act of violence still happened and that guy I attacked is still not safe because who’s to say it would not happen again by someone else. In the end
it us living with each other peacefully, respecting one another’s rights and freedoms that really keeps the peace so stop giving up your rights just
to have an illusion of safety that you really don’t have!
