doglover: R.A.Danny: doglover: ZAZ: 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.

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.

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.


That's.... a really good idea, actually. The Uniform is the authority, not the person. If you're not in uniform, you're a civillian. With no powers.

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.


She needs to get it expunged. Any lawyer should be able to do it for about $800, and it takes 3-4 months.

Two things.  First, alcohol control officers, whatever their state, never get the experience of dealing with major crimes that other law enforcement does, so they tend to treat their petty offenders who they just caught buying beer underage, as if they were members of some major drug cartel.  While I believe they do important work in regulating a restrictive substance, I have never been impressed with how they perform their job, in any state.  That said, I notice the ones that started showing up during spring break, to enforce underage drinking laws a few years ago, have started calming down, and treating the kids in much the same firm but reasonable manner that the regular cops do, so it may just be a lack of field experience for most of their officers.

Second, unless someone actually shot the poor girl, her damages are no where near 40 million.  While she deserves something, whoever decided on that figure for her is an idiot.  The best she can really hope for is a few thousand dollars in a settlement, just to go away.

dukeblue219: Satanic_Hamster: 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?

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.


gotta justify spending all that terrorism money somehow.

Gee, if I didn't have a wicked sense of humor, I could have done this to the cop that pulled me for suspected drinking and driving when all I was drinking was an IBC root beer!

The look on his face when he realized... I asked him if he was gonna rewind the dash-cam footage and tape over it so no one would see that.

First, if two random dudes started pulling guns and banging on windows (for water), they'll have a hard time convincing me that they are (in fact) police.

Also, I think it might even be a shining-ray-of-light miracle that not one aimed weapon was fired. The riots would never stop.
 
2014-03-29 10:21:16 AM  
If a non-uniformed man pulled a gun on me as I was leaving a store, you bet your ass I would speed off, and run them over, if necessary. Let's not pretend people don't get carjacked every single day.

I hope the victim gets such a huge settlement that the state will re-think the entire stupid program.

It appears that America has Leukemia, coupled with an autoimmune disease. Tons and Tons of immature white blood cells (police) creating an autoimmune response (attacking and wrecking peoples lives without cause, hyper militarization) while still allowing diseases and infections to take root dangerously (real crimes, violent gangs, and intense theft and corporate corruption are still running rampant).

The good news is, both of these are treatable, with a bone marrow transplant (New order of police and methods of vetting and training them) and immunosuppressant drugs (reduce the militarization and size of police forces).

It's time to go see a doctor, America. This is fatal if left untreated.
 
2014-03-29 10:24:32 AM  
Here's a thought if a cop acts outside of the bounds of policy, which I believe was acknowledged here, then they lose all protections against personal liability.  Also criminal complaints against police need to be investigated either by a separate agency, or at the very least a different police department which has absolutely no connections to the one being investigated.  Also mandatory point of view cameras for officers, and gun cams that turn on when the gun clears the holster.  Police should never draw have to draw a gun unless there is clear indication of danger; that's part of why we keep having innocent people getting shot by the police.

/On a unrelated note fark the drinking age.

That often doesn't help. Expungement only takes it off the official record. Private companies that do background checks often siphon data out of the public systems and store it. So even after it's been expunged, it'll continue to show up on the reports a lot of employers pay for.

I think the idea of legal adults not being able to buy alcohol is absurd, but that's my opinion and other people think it makes sense. As such, if you want to have laws in place to write citations for underage possession of alcohol, fine. I think it's silly, but whatever... Treat it like a speeding ticket. The idea that it would EVER be ok to draw a firearm on someone for underage possession of alcohol is absolutely indefensible. As she fled to her car, the agent should of drawn a pencil from his shirt pocket and wrote down the license plate... And called it in, which would of given him/her the address and name of the vehicle owner. Then should of walked into the store to question the clerk that just (allegedly) sold alcohol to someone underage. At which point it would of been clear that it was water that was purchased... No weapons, no injuries, no lawsuit, no BS.

It's interesting that in this case the department leaders aren't playing the traditional "We believe our officers actions were appropriate" card.  They've already admitted that proper procedures weren't followed and have labeled the whole incident as "unfortunate".  Add to this the Attorney General's spokesman who's comment was that they're there to defend the state's interests (rather than to defend the department's actions).

To me, as a layperson, that suggests that the state has prepared itself to part with some money.

Funny, when I was in high school my friend Jim bought a 6 pack of IBC and we sat on his trunk drinking it and shooting the bull.  County sheriff walks up all serious and says "What are you boys drinking?"

Jim says "Beer.  Beer of the root.  Want one?"  Sheriff says someone drove by and called us in.  He had to get on the radio and say it was root beer and I heard the dispatcher laugh.

$40 million is not an absurd amount for this kind of Gestapo bullshiat.  The individual cops are completely insulated from the consequences of their actions.  They are incapable of policing themselves due to decades of tilted legal precedent and the influence of their unions.  The community, the voters need to police them.  They need to feel it in their pocketbooks, because right now the cops have no incentive to clean up their act.  The cops and their sycophants blame a system that allows $40 million lawsuits.  The rubes agree with them, rather than blame a system that allows cops to act like that in the first place, and get away with it.

You're actually an overweening, try-too-hard "wannabe" liberal. Sorry my man. Take it from a very politically involved social democrat -- you're pushing authoritarianism here.

These are state officers, who literally abused a private citizen, threatening lethal force. Again, not the same as "I spilled hot coffee on myself".

Sure, 40 mill is a bit hilarious. But I think 20-30k is the minimum this warrants. Pay for the kids college for their fark-up.


I didn't read to where she got arrested. I made it to "they 'tried' to break her car window" and stopped there.

I take it back. $1000 for every night she spent in jail.

Back when I was underage (in the late 80's/early 90's) that's pretty much how it was handled if you got caught with beer. More times than not, they'd make you dump it all out on the ground and call it a day. If you were being a jackass, you'd get cited for minor in possession on the same uniform citation and complaint that you'd get if you were caught speeding. $49.75 was the total after court costs, IIRC.

Then MADD got involved for the children, and we have shiat like this.

ITG aside, I would absolutely take off, dial 911 and would not stop my car until I saw a marked cruiser with a uniformed officer inside.

CSB:

Many moons ago when I still lived in SoCal, I was lit up by an unmarked cop driving a car that I have never seen a cop in.  This was right after a string of criminals had been "pulling people over" in unmarked cars.  I did not pull over immediately and the person who was attempting to pull me over was getting visibly upset at me...so I called 911, told them I was being pulled over and told the operator that I was not stopping until I had confirmation that the vehicle behind me was indeed a cop.  I told them that I was very uncomfortable in pulling over to an unmarked vehicle with a non-uniformed officer inside.  I ended up getting off the freeway where a marked car and uniformed officer met us.

The undercover was pissed beyond all belief that I had the audacity to even question the validity of his actions...the two argued for a minute, then I was given a warning and congratulations on taking my safety so seriously from the uniformed officer and was free to go.

No, I just know someone who's been to jail wrongly accused and won less than $50k in the lawsuit regardless of spending a couple of weeks in jail. Her lawsuit is frivolous. She didn't get shot. She didn't get beaten.

We have brown people getting their houses raided, shot and killed.. Where does this young lady stand in comparison? Might it look to you that she's getting extra attention for being white and pretty?


Well those people deserve a lot of money, as does your friend. Doesn't diminish what this girl went through and that the state needs to be heavily punished for this. Also bear in mind you can name whatever you want in a suit. Prisoners often file lawsuits with no merit for tens of millions too.
The money for this kind of conduct comes from the
insurance company, not sure the taxpayers directly.

And no its not getting attention cause she's whit and pretty. If they were doing that, they wouldn't be breaking down her windows.

It's the fake MSRP thing. If you put a fine item on display with a suggested retail of $499, but act now to get it for $240, it sounds like a bargain.

Also, the lawyer's in for at least a third. Aim big, settle outta court for a new yacht and college funds.

meow said the dog: LandOfChocolate: K3rmy: TV's Vinnie: illegal.tender: 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.

-50/10

Agreed.  The below is obligatory in this case.
