Detained for smoking....didn't even cuff the guy and he still was a prick.
I had a negative run in with the police recently. A friend of mine is a bartender and DJ at local bar, after DJing all night I helped him break down
after hours at the bar. At some point the bar's alarm was accidentally set off, I was outside at the time and decided to stick around and tell the
cops what happened, bad idea. It took them about 25 minutes to show up and immediately they decide I am a burglary suspect and cuff me. They find my
friend who works at the bar inside passed and cuff him too(he was DJing, hence a lot a free drinks and why I stayed behind to help him break down). He
has the code to deactivate the alarm, but they will not let him deactivate it. They call the owner of the bar's daughter to come and deactivate it
instead. It took her over an hour to get there meanwhile we had to sit there in cuffs.
I tried to reason with the cops, I said " If were trying to rob the place do you think I would stick around for 20+ minutes for you guys to show up?"
No luck. After the owner's daughter shows up they walk through and make sure nothing is missing(she does not run the business and wouldn't have known
if anything was out of the ordinary). When all that was done the police try to coerce her into pressing charges against us. She refused to press
charges against an employee and patron.
At this point I'm tired of being nice and started telling the cops how bad of a job they are doing while still cuffed. They told me if they see me
again they will arrest me. So around 630am the next day, guess who they arrested?
I spent the rest of the day in jail on drunk and disorderly charges, I was refused a drug and alcohol test when I requested one while in custody. I
got bailed out the next morning and now have to see a judge next week where I will plea not guilty and request a trial by jury. No lawyer needed for
It gets better, two days later I catch some thieves stealing fuel tanks out of a boat on a dock I use. I was able to get one tank back and the tag#
and vehicle description. I call the police and one cop shows up and doesn't even run the tag, because "its probably a stolen tag" and doesn't seem to
care. I feel like they do not care about catching thieves and criminals but will try to coerce someone into pressing charges over nothing when they
already have someone in cuffs, and then make up a reason to arrest someone after the fact.
