PostSubject: "Because I Said So" Is Not A Valid Reason   Sat Sep 15, 2012 12:55 pm

Many police officers and deputy sheriffs seem to think that just because they order a person to do a particular thing, "Because I said so" is all the authority they need to violate the rights of the citizenry. They seem to forget that there are little things called laws that apply not only to citizens of the U.S., but to LEOs as well.

In this video you will see a half-dozen officers attempt to exert unlawful authority over these two peaceful protesters when they have absolutely no right to do so. Six minutes in however, the men are contacted by what appears to be an Illinois State Trooper (I'm assuming that because of the D.I. cover preferred by many state police agencies.) I would like to buy THAT officer a beer; the rest get coal in their stockings.



Thank God the police in this area are cool like that. In the days after my arrest, and that of my son, we received quite a bit of attention from local law enforcement. Since I wasn't allowed to drive though, most of that attention was focused on my son. Even though the reasons he was pulled over - 6 times in a week by various agencies - for the most minor reasons (like putting on his seatbelt as he exited a gas station instead of before the car started moving as he should have) I have no complaint with the way either of us were treated. Every contact we had with local LEOs was respectful, if expensive.

Looking back on it now, I think they were trying to "feel me out," see who I was, and learn what I'm all about. Now that they know that I'm not a Sovereign Citizen or similar whackjob that thinks the law doesn't apply to me, the harassment has stopped. I have also made it a point to stop and introduce myself to a few members of the local LEO community, and have had several lengthy conversations with many of them. Only ONE scares me; a State Trooper that told me flat out that he welcomed the idea of warrantless searches and detainment. IDK where they got this guy, but he has no business enforcing the law. Again I thank God that men like him are a minority; in fact, he is the ONLY officer I've spoken with that I don't completely trust.

That last cop was awsome. That is how police should all respond in those situations. It amazes me how many police either don't know the rights or simply think they are above them. Our police aren't too bad around here as of now, and I hope they stay that way.
