Dunavant, the former U.S. attorney ― who has posted "Happy Birthday" messages to Trump, as well a photo of himself holding a "MAKE AMERICA SAFE AGAIN" sign at a Trump rally ― did not respond to a message seeking comment. Dunavant now works as chief investigative counsel for Tennessee Comptroller of the Treasury Jason Mumpower....

Poor Tennessee.

Months after the raid, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Western District of Tennessee charged Coffman under a rarely used statute that makes it unlawful to possess weapons as a user of an illegal drug. The charge has sometimes been used against white supremacists who espouse violence, but it was used here to target a member of a rock band with an antifascist theatrical motif.

Coffman was a legal gun owner, but law enforcement found a small amount of marijuana at his home during the raid. This, combined with Coffman's admission that he used marijuana, gave authorities the basis for a federal charge.


Past time to legalize marijuana.

Boy, that's going to be a fun law to wield against the crackheads down south that insists the confederacy was all about freedum and just happens to open a small arsenal...

Results could be interesting if you apply it to all the cops with questionably legit access to steroids.

FTFA: Chief U.S. District Judge S. Thomas Anderson, who was appointed by former President George W. Bush, didn't think so much of the investigative work. In a remarkable ruling on Friday, Anderson ordered the evidence collected in the raid to be suppressed, finding that the search of Coffman's residence was unconstitutional and that no reasonable officer acting in good faith could have believed the search warrant was evidence of probable cause to search the home....Anderson wrote that the affidavit "glaringly" omitted the fact that The Gunpowder Plot is Coffman's band, "although that information was doubtlessly easily accessible and known by the affiant and would have been highly relevant" to the local judge who found probable cause to execute the search warrant...Anderson's order tears apart the affidavit, written by Jackson Police Maj. Phillip Kemper, that formed the basis for the search of Coffman's house. Anderson wrote that Kemper, as well as others like Jackson Police Lt. Chris Chestnut, should have had the common sense to realize that Coffman's highly curated and First Amendment-protected images to promote his band did not offer a reasonable basis to search his home.

I'd almost bet my goddam house that the fascist, lying sacks of shiat cops are ex-military.

i guess that's fair enough.

Dude was in jail over a month as a political prisoner. Those responsible need to face far more serious consequences than that.
 
2021-08-20 6:21:36 PM  
That guy needs a hefty settlement for the illegal jailing, the costs, the time spent, the trouble he was caused
etc...

The people involved in the investigation need to be jail and never be allowed to work in law enforcement
EVER, ANYWHERE...

Just have a machine do all the judging.  Program it to make everybody found guilty.  Total equality under the law.

What happened to this guy is awful and I hope he gets some justice for his mistreatment, but, if you're an anarcho-punk band, why would you name yourselves after a terrorist plot to install a Catholic theocracy?

The photos showed him standing in front of a police vehicle and posing with a fake Molotov cocktail behind his back.

While I find the charges to be silly, I can absolutely understand why they raided his house.

Then you should acquaint yourself with the judge's ruling. That should clear it up for you.
