I am completely SHOCKED at the absolute naivety of some of the people on this forum.
Yup. Me too. I see it right in this very thread.
In your 30 years you haven't had a negative experience with police?. And your name is Green eyed LEO...hmmm That might be self explanatory...
By the way. Im not a cop. LEO stands for leo, the astrological sign.
Your entitled to your opinion, as I am mine. I stand by my words completely. Again, never had any issues with any cops - ever. I get nothing but respect from cops - always - even when im pulled over.
I still believe that many people cause their own issues with cops. Cops are not always to blame. Yes, some bad ones out there. But there are an awful lot of citizens who bring it on themselves.

I think there are always two sides to the story and that we should wait for an official police statement before jumping to conclusions.
There must have been other circumstances that caused this couple to be arrested.
