My Commentary: Wow…”Law and order” sure looks a whole lot like “torture.” Ironically, if this man were a convicted criminal in prison, secured in handcuffs, this would easily be deemed “cruel and unusual punishment” in most States…
My Commentary: This is what calling an officer to the scene of a minor accident you were involved in looks like in a police state…
Check out how the cowardly, trigger-happy shooter has the audacity to repeatedly tell the innocent man he just gunned down not to move. What the fuzz? How does one normally react to the pain of taking a bullet through the torso? Also, notice how the copsuckers in the comments section of the video claim that the driver should have stayed in his car, shouldn’t have had his wallet in hand, etc. Gee… How does one normally react when police arrive to the scene of an accident they’ve been in?
The following correspondence originally took place upon my Facebook wall, after I shared artwork being shared by the page, “Statism is a Cult“…
“Without government, violent gangs would take over.”
Nali M.: That happened in my city. I think it’s bc she kneed him in the crotch. Still should have used the taser instead.
Rayn: The officer attempted to arrest this woman for warrants that were invalid, making him nothing more than a costumed criminal, with a shiny badge, and a gun. He was operating only undercolor of law, and had no legal right to arrest this woman.
She was under no obligation to cooperate in any way with the unlawful orders of these State agents, and appeared perfectly cognizant of this fact. She understood that she was being abducted, through use of assault and battery, with the intent to falsely imprison her, and chose to exercise her right to resist the criminal acts she was being subjected to, and attempted to appeal to reason and evidence, as her defense.
“Citizens may resist unlawful arrest to the point of taking an arresting officer’s life if necessary.” Plummer v. State, 136 Ind. 306. This premise was upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States in the case: John Bad Elk v. U.S., 177 U.S. 529. The Court stated: “Where the officer is killed in the course of the disorder which naturally accompanies an attempted arrest that is resisted, the law looks with very different eyes upon the transaction, when the officer had the right to make the arrest, from what it does if the officer had no right. What may be murder in the first case might be nothing more than manslaughter in the other, or the facts might show that no offense had been committed.”
“An arrest made with a defective warrant, or one issued without affidavit, or one that fails to allege a crime is within jurisdiction, and one who is being arrested, may resist arrest and break away. lf the arresting officer is killed by one who is so resisting, the killing will be no more than an involuntary manslaughter.” Housh v. People, 75 111. 491; reaffirmed and quoted in State v. Leach, 7 Conn. 452; State v. Gleason, 32 Kan. 245; Ballard v. State, 43 Ohio 349; State v Rousseau, 241 P. 2d 447; State v. Spaulding, 34 Minn. 3621.(Click Here to Continue Reading This Post) →
I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…
Gale Griffin and her husband, Wendall Harvey, a married, truck-driving team, who were falsely imprisoned for two months when police discovered baggies of baking soda in their truck at a vehicle checkpoint
(Meg Wagner) A truck-driving couple spent two months in jail and lost their jobs after Arkansas police mistook a plastic baggie full of baking soda for a hefty supply of cocaine.
Gale Griffin and her husband, Wendall Harvey, who haul explosives for the U.S. military, said they were detained for eight grueling weeks while they waited for a lab to overturn the in-the-field drug test that detected illegal drugs in their truck.
(Carlos Miller) The Mississippi cop who left her 3-year-old daughter in her patrol car for four hours while visiting another cop at his home last week, resulting in the toddler’s death, was temporarily stripped of custody last year after leaving her daughter in the car in a previous incident.
But Long Beach police officer Cassie Barker persuaded the state Department of Human Services to return her child, only for her to do it again 18 months later.
Barker has since been charged with manslaughter for allowing her daughter, Cheyenne, Hyer, to die in her patrol car. She turned herself in, but was released within an hour, under much criticism from the local sheriff and media.
