If you file a $40 million lawsuit for being arrested, you should automatically lose and pay your victims' legal fees. Even if the arrest causes you anxiety. Even if the arrest causes you death. It's an absurd amount and the legal system should treat it as a frivolous claim.

No. We need to make the punative damages equal to all salaries, pentions, and budgets of any alcohol police. Destroy them, smote their ruin, undo their works, and end their lines. Vice laws mostly destroy societies. Break those who enforce them as the treasons they are.

Every suit has two elements: liability and damages. The liability portion of this suit certainly seems to have merit. If it gets that far, it will be up to the jury to assign a dollar figure. Just because the monetary claim is seemingly outrageous does not mean the entire suit is without merit. Not to mention, a judgment against the state is seldom worth more than the money it's printed on. You can't seize state assets to satisfy a judgment, so usually the legislature has to approve payments of civil judgments, so that can take years. If it ever even happens. If you ever find yourself suing the state, find a lawyer who has a lot of connections in the state legislature.

Yep, we need the damages to hurt. Badly. Any cop thinking he needs to draw his weapon for an alleged underaged drinking bust REALLY needs to become a financial burden for wherever he works.

I do think that paying her more than a few $100,000 tops is way too much. I've been falsely arrested at the age of 18 myself. Get a hobby, girl. Work some of that stress off.

But we should utterly destroy the programs in place that allow two thugs to menace a teenager with handguns for having a beer. If anything, those assholes should have been arrested, not her. Take all their money, all their department's money, and all of their bureau's money and give it ALL to NASA. Every last dime should be going towards a Europa probe.

Not even the cops themselves. Their whole organization. An Alcoholic Beverage Control agent should be some weedy farker in a suit and hard hat who comes to your factory, inspects the place, and gives you a yea or nay on renewing your license. They should be under the Health Department's umbrella. If they choose to have guns, it will be CCW and with no relation to their vocation nor would it be acceptable for them to use one at work.

Destroy the whole project. Take all the money and give it to a decent program. Also, I would like to see a law where cops who are not in uniform are not cops. "plain clothes officer" should mean "no authority person" You can still use undercover cops as witnesses and in prostitution stings, but there should be an explicit law that a cop in plain clothes is no cop at all.

For the life of me, I don't understand why someone would think they would need a squad of undercover officers with weapons drawn for an underage alcohol purchasing sting.

Let's say the cops were right; she was underage and purchasing booze.  So their plan was to point a shiatload of loaded weapons at a farking KID just for buying alcohol?

My sister was arrested once and even though the charges were dropped, it still shows up on her record when potential employers do a background check. It has seriously affected her ability to find employment. She would have definitely sued if she had known she'd never be able to find a job which utilizes her degree.

This story has been covered a few times here on Fark.

My understanding is that the "police" didn't draw their weapons until she tried to flee in her vehicle with them in her way.

That said, the whole thing is farking stupid and they should have better things to do.

Sure, why not? In graduate school in an engineering building we had a professor accused (rightly) of misappropriating a few hundred thousand dollars. A legit crime worthy of a search warrant, no doubt. Instead, 2 fully armed and armored swat teams, followed by uniformed state police, stormed the building and held everyone they found there at 8am at gunpoint. We're talking about 21-25 year old engineering students and their professors who aren't even connected to this case. It was a big learning moment for me about how the police view the public.

I hope she loses. No one should be able to sue the police. It's stupid. What's next? Suing the police for speeding tickets?

Freaking trial lawyers. This is why things cost so much.

Here's an idea: obey the law. If there weren't so many underage drinkers this would not have to happen.

The point here is that even is it was beer, so what?  Why do police in america respond like this to crimes that don't have a victim?
 
2014-03-29 09:59:24 AM
America has so many policing agencies they need a police force to police the police. Give them all the surplus military equipment the Army says it can't use and doesn't want and make them fight the police.

Then charge admission to the police fights. Sooo many problems solved there.

So you think it is totally appropriate for undercover alcohol cops to act as aggressively towards these girls in the manner in which they did?  You see nothing wrong with that behavior?

that's silly.
the amount of recovery has nothing to do with the claim.  why would asking for a specific number automatically make your claim frivolous let alone an automatic loss?

Virginia ABC Police are the worst of the worst. I know there are a lot of people who think cops in general are nothing more than power-hungry jocks who want to push the little people around anyway they can, but the majority of regular five-oh are pretty decent guys in my experience. The ABC Cops in VA, however, are the lowest of the low. Nothing more than guys who couldn't make it in real policing who have nothing better to do than enforce outdated and antiquated laws for the sake of keeping VA's liquor monopoly going to churn out dollars for the state. They're the goddamned brown-shirts of the law enforcement world.
