Is it against T&C to call people out?

You should be ashamed of yourselves for letting the Blue Code come before the rights of the people. You should be ashamed that you fought tooth and nail, to prove that the charges were legit.

YOU and others like you, are the reason that peace officers are no longer trusted and respected. YOU and others like you, are the reason I resigned my peace officer license.

And quite frankly, YOU and others like you are the ones people worry about if TSHTF.

Pathetic.

Good job.

They don't say specifically that the 12 tickets have been or will be dismissed. I would think they would get tossed though. I would hope.

This happened in New York state right?

In Illinois, Massachusetts, and Maryland it's illegal to film cops because they say it's wiretapping or some BS like that.

If that happened in any of those three states, the woman would have lost... and hopefully would have brought it up to the Supreme Court and won...


Only in Illinois and even there it's being fought at the moment. With big guns going against it. The other 3 states that had the same wording in the law made it a policy that it doesn't apply if there is no expectation of privacy.

I wonder who issued the orders for the officers to descend on the supporters of Emily good and issue the tickets. I'm sure they didn't just decide on their own to do so. Whoever issued these orders needs to be investigated too for harassment.
Regardless, these cops new they were involved in harassment. They were attempting to scare the public. I think the corruption in this department probably runs pretty deep.
Glad I don't live in their community.

Too bad she had to be traumatized by the police first.

So the case was dismissed but cops can arrest you for made up charges still?

The sad fact remains that since she was charged arrested, and held for 24 hours her fingerprints are now a permanent part of the government database. I think her prints should be wiped from the record in the event that someone is found innocent.

I was once the victim of something like this and well, her fingerprints are now on file for doing nothing but recording.

Good point, whoever that vindictive SOB was, he should be made to pay for that stupid idea.

I think that that was worse than the original incident, as it was planned and obviously discussed by a group of officers, to ticket those cars.

You think?


I hope she gets a nice settlement.


And who picks up the bill for all the wasted resources and possible payout?

Taxpayers.

That's right.

It should come out of the arresting officer's paycheck.

Ill explain it once and then I need to get going.

If an officer makes an arrest, and in doing so believes the arrest is valid based on law, then there is no false arrest or anything like that. A false arrest occurs when the person acting under color of law knowingly makes an arrest, and knows there is no law to support the charge. In this case, as well as others that occur on a daily basis, law enforcement will investigate and submit the report to the DA with recomended charges (PC statement). The PA is the final decision on whether the evidence supports the charge, and decides if the prosecution will go forward.

Just because the PA withdraws the charges, does not make the officers actins illegal.

This officer did not violate any of the above.

@ Lemon_Fresh - You really need to chill and allow people the time to log in and go through the info. The ladies court date was this morning. Had the tables been reversed would you have been in here appologizing?

Explain why it should? The officer did not violate the law. You guys seem confused on that point.

I would pat you on the back if I was standing next to you.

That was very nice.

At the very least a shift-supervisor had to approve of so many officers descending upon that neighborhood all at once, even at their own request, leaving the rest of the city/sectors of the city unprotected by patrols.

You can file for removal of your prints and mugshots from the database. I've done it.

Only my opinion, but I believe that the officer used his position of authority to try to intimidate her, then he arrested her... all because he did not want to be filmed. Not because she was breaking a law, or even causing trouble for him, just because he didn't like it.

If he isn't breaking a law, then the laws need to be changed. He arrested her falsely, IMO.

There is no such thing as false arrest if you are a sworn officer. So long as the officer has probable cause, he can arrest anyone at any time. No charges ever have to even be filed. But as a matter of fact, many times police will affect and arrest and decide on the charges later having first conferred with their supervisor and/or DA's office. Police are not lawyers.

All they need to have is probable cause, which may or may not have anything to do with an actual violation of law.
