There's no corruption quite like small town corruption.

They raided the Batmobiles because they were looking for Hillary's emails.

Someone is building Batmobiles for 210k, that's all I got. And some corruption and favoritism

Here's the gist of it, from a comment, if someone is not into the clicky to read it.

"OK let me get this straight--the taxpayers paid for officers to go to another state to arrest someone who had an economic dispute ($220K!) with a resident of Atherton? And NOW the taxpayers are going to pay for a retired judge (at probably $400 an hour) to decide whether this was right???? Seriously. My 5 year old granddaughter knows that you can't do something for a friend because you want to ESPECIALLY TWO ELECTED OFFICIALS who said this was ok? Wagstaffe can say whatever he wants but he's responsible for his department.....so HE alone answers for this. It seems so silly but is so serious. Barney Frank going Silicon Valley. How about "Real Sheriff's of Silicon Valley." Too bad this didn't come out before the election for a new sheriff (thank god we got a new one!) as the replacement would have gotten even more votes--and one wonders why didn't this come out BEFORE??? And to find out that Anagnostou knows both elected officials. And they are saying this is "right"?

Now we're being told that it wouldn't matter they would go after anyone with an economic dispute if the person was a resident of San Mateo county. Excuse me while I spit out my tea. Perhaps all who are reading this can just get to the sheriff (before he is replaced) and the DA's office to get them to take up your case. They might not even have to go to Indiana and spend upwards of $15,000 directly from tax payers. Let's see how "even" that would be.

I can't wait to see the series on Netflix! It's so impossible to believe. Then to read the "reasons" is stunning.

Please stop.....and hopefully somebody knows Bonta and will really get him to investigate this.

Stunning. Shocking. Disgusting. We could have spent that money on people who are hungry right here in our own county.

Students this is the true story of a "boondoggle"--couldn't be a better one.

I want it to come out how much did Bolanos get himself for this "favor.""

tl;dr version.

Dude orders a batmobile replica.  Stops paying his payments on it so the car builder moves his order to the back of the line.  Dude later makes his payments up to date but the car builder doesn't bump him back to the front of the line.  Dude gets all pissy manchild and gets his D.A. and Sherriff buddies to put some heat on the car builder.

Oh good. Because I read like half of that and after the third paragraph that basically said the same "There was a request to investigate this raid" thing without adding any additional information, I got too bored to try to figure out what the problem even was.

Even weirder, gets them to raid and detain the replica dealer in a completely different state.

The crime was "not giving preferential treatment to the well- connected".

Right now it's about the only crime in America the cops will do anything about.

I'm guessing "unspecified technicality" was it had no merit and got laughed out of court.

To me, the tumbler looks like the Army Corps of Engineers designed an enclosed riding lawn mower. It's my least favorite Batmobile design. I like the one from BvS better.

Rich douchebro got his knickers twisted when car constructor acted according to the contract douchebro had signed and breached. Douchebro then used his corrupt buddies at the DAs/Sheriff's office to go out of jurisdiction and conduct a legally questionable raid and arrest.

That's not really what's happening here, when the players are an ultra-wealthy Atherton resident using the San Mateo Country Sheriff's office as his own personal enforcers.

San Mateo County is anything but "small town."

AKA The Good ol' boys network.  They really are not in play here, what is is a rich entitled jerk who could not keep his paperwork in order and missed a payment/deposit and got kicked to the back of the line to get a new play thing and then had a hissy fit over it and called in favors' with the local Sheriff's office to punish the guy for enforcing his rules.

Yeah it's like a Humvee or a mini-tank. And they addressed the issue but didn't resolve that the thing was designed and built by Wayne Enterprises. So Morgan Freeman intimidated one employee into not spilling the beans but there'd be hundreds more that would recognize it.

The best part was Bane smashing into Wayne's equipment stash and grabbing his own tumblers to patrol Gotham on a regular schedule, yet by the end of the movie, Gordon still hasn't connected that Wayne is Batman. The Commissioner from the old '66 TV series had better reasoning skills.

I know there are companies that restore Deusenberg automobiles, and the biggest concern among the car owners is still being alive when the job gets finished.

To give you an idea of the work needed to restore a Deusenberg, the body of the headlight is made of steel, then electroplated in copper, then nickel, then chrome. Now imagine that the car contains hundreds of such parts.

The judges who signed off on the warrant should be disbarred.

How can you be a judge and NOT understand "jurisdiction"? The deputies had no authority beyond the county border. I'm really surprised that the sheriff in Indiana didn't tell them to pound sand and GTFO.

It remains to be seen what these judges were asked to sign off on, or if any judges were actually even consulted. I wouldn't take anything said by this particular sheriff's office as remotely true until absolutely proven to be so.

Sheriff is white.

Prosecutor is white.
Their Constitutional Jurisdiction is whatever they want.

Judges never face any consequences, unless they do it to the wrong person.

Wouldn't that be great cover for Batman?  He's a vigilante.  Maybe he stole his tumbler too.

I'm thinking, "A customer sends corrupt cops to raid your business and arrest you" probably nullifies the contract with penalties.

And Wayne never once said "Hey, that vigilante stole my top secret military contract project"? That vigilante who looks a lot like Wayne, and even sounds like him despite the hilarious growly voice? At best Gordon should suspect he's Wayne's twin brother Prestige.

Also, the car builder/seller is in Indiana and the buyer and sheriff are in California.
