Ok, really. This kind of stuff just keeps happening over and over all across the country. Video record the police from YOUR front
yard/property/garage/etc, get arrested/harassed. Get pulled over with a bumper sticker the cops don't like or a book (or God forbid a pocket
constitution) in your car the cops don't like, get arrested/harassed. Video record while being pulled over (especially in the God forsaken state of
Illinois), get arrested/harassed. Go to a public town meeting and peacefully voice your opinion, get arrested/harassed. Wheelchair bound? Yep, you
guessed it, get arrested/harassed/roughed up.
I have had it with these kinds of stories that just don't seem to stop. Why don't they stop? Because we are all a bunch of wimps (myself included).
That's why. Nobody ever does anything to lower the boom on the cops when this kind of behavior takes place. I understand the courts suck and that's
part of it as well. My point is that when the public gets into this kind of situation they need to legally hit (figuratively speaking) the police
departments and officers with everything they have. The departments and the officers involved in these actions HAVE to be held accountable (as do
associated politicians). I don't care if it means loss of employment. In fact they should lose their jobs. Immediately if not sooner. They should
also be banned from ever holding any kind of law enforcement job ever again, and be banned from buying/owning/possessing firearms, ammunition, and any
component in whole or in part thereof. The police and politicians are to serve we the people. Period. This kind of behavior makes our Constitution
look like toilet paper! I can only hope this gal can make an example of these thugs.
This is happening more than we know. The problem is not every incident is recorded by someone who is willing to put it on youtube or call the local
media about it so it goes unnoticed. It is getting to the point where we have to carry a recording device just to keep our law abiding behinds out of
trouble since the cops will find anything to nail you with. The cops clearly can't be trusted and neither can the politicians and judges.
Please, America, wake up!! Enough with the facebook, dancing w/the stars, the housewives shows, or who's pitching in tonight's game!! Read the
constitution. Educate yourself a little bit at a time. I have read the Constitution and it gets kinda of boring I'll admit but read it anyways! Take
an hour and go down to your local police dept and talk to the police chief or upper level officers. Try going to a town meeting. I have. Will you? If
we all start doing these little things to make our voices heard then maybe we can get back to living without worrying about whether or not we're
doing something that the police deem illegal when its really our right.
