First I worked hand in hand with many cops being head of rescue, then retired, most were just good people. Then I went up against one that had a side job and his personality came out. I will leave out where I am from for I still fear this full time state cop. And yes, I carry now due to this fear.
In his side job, he got to play power games with folks wanting to build homes and such. Ten years after having a cabin, he changed his mind and wanted it removed as he considered I tricked him in the beginning even though he had all the blue prints but tried valiantly to hide the records.
The short of it is, he tried to beat me up a few years ago at our last meeting when his true personality came out, my wife stepped in as I am disabled and was recovering from surgery at the time. So later he spread lies and had the township take us to court. Ultimately we had to cave in and we will tear down our little place as he, and the courts whom are also crooked here were rapidly bankrupting us. Know this, stand up to some of these guys and you will be attacked on many levels and the courts for the most part are part of this biggest gang in town. I remember the Judge whom threw out all our rights saying, we local governing agencies need to stand together and then commenced to present a new rule which he ordered I needed to comply to retroactively. Yes, I could have beat this had I been very wealthy. Nuff said, this was a rude awakening, there is no rights unless you are rich enough to pursue those rights.

I had a legal right to 1 hour of time to shower for every 24 hours locked in solitary confinement covered in my own filth, in a room full of garbage.
I had a legal right to 'reasonable medical care' defined as: "the minimum amount of care a reasonable human being would expect to get if they were not being detained".
Had I been given either of these RIGHTS, I would have gladly stayed in solitary for 3 months just to plead not guilty and fight this case.
I happen to have a few pretty serious health problems, two of which require medication daily, one of which can and will easily kill me if I do not take said medication.
I'm sorry if you think that I "gave up my rights" because I plead guilty. As far as I am aware, I SHOULD have had the right to be *assumed innocent until proven guilty in a trial of my peers--correct? so, the assumption is, that this is how our government treats innocent people?
Seriously, think about what your saying before you say it.
California courts are currently under FEDERAL supervision for medical negligence--that's how bad it is in my state, I just got caught up in it, and happen to have a few genuinely serious medical problems.
One month before I was booked into "county jail", a pregnant woman and her fetus died from medical negligence at the same county jail, in the female part of the SAME ward I was in, staffed by the same persons.edit on 15-5-2012 by SulucOhmun because: (no reason given)

This is just wrong on so many levels. What is happening to our police?
If you were to quantitate the number of these incidents to the number of officers out there, it would demonstrate that the majority of LEOs are doing their job the righteous way.
But, it is also fair to point out that regardless of the numbers, one should be cautious dealing with Johnny Law, 'cause you just don't know which one you are gonna get - good cop or bad cop..?
It's the criminals that are supposed to fear the Long Arm of the Law, not your Average Joe. Especially since your Average Joe is broke, frustrated and more than likely a gun owner...just like the bad apples of law enforcement, we all have are limits - they better catch on before they find themselves up against the wall - literally.

The American Citizen is just now getting a taste of their own medicine. It's all fun and games when we go blow other countries to oblivion and torture the sh*&t out of innocent people abroad. But now all of a sudden we just don't like this idea anymore, huh? It's always different when the shoe is on the other foot.
