What you can do, when you make the phone call and actually get a real person on the other end, is to simply inform them that you are recording the
call and go from there. They will either talk, or hang up but either way it covers you from potential law violations. The recorded message that the
call is being recorded is intended to inform the people calling. It does not cover the person who is calling in, and they must inform the people they
are calling that the call is also being recorded on their end as well.
As far as the article, I think its BS. The charges themselves will come from the PA's office, however if no charges are filed then any sworn officer
/ PA involved should be investigated for a 42 USC 1983 violation.
Based on the article, using a search warrant in that fashion, at least to me, is a lie of omission. When you request a search warrant you are stating
a violation of the law has taken place, which laws were violated and specificslly what items you are wanting, with the intent behind that warrant to
collect evidence of that crime, to preserve that evidence, and to present it in a court of law.
Going to full 9 yeards, and then not moving forward with a prosecution, is a blatant misuse of that authority and is essentially a form of
intimidation and theft under the color of law.
Again if the information in the article is correct and accurate, and this guy got nowhere when dealing with the state, he should contact the Feds,
specifically the EPA for the illegal dumping, and the FBI to file a civil rights violation.
