WTF over-zealous police? - Page 72

post #1066 of 6234
"A kindergarten student in Alabama was told by her school to sign a contract saying she wouldn’t kill herself or other students after allegedly drawing a picture of something that vaguely resembled a gun.
The 5-year-old girl was also given a quiz about her mental state.
The girl also took a crayon and pointed it at a classmate before going “pew, pew.”

Pew pew!

The video is embedded in there somewhere. Can't seem to pull a link for it directly.

It says he "signed a waiver to relinquish the cash," and was never charged with a crime. I have no idea if that was in the car or back at the station. But he handed the money over on the street, they towed his car, then they let him go out of the station.

Wtf? They are supposed to be charging her with a sex crime

Everybody knows that pew pew is the proper sound effect for ejaculation (especially if you are shaking a cylindrical object when you do it)

How would you see it if nobody contested it?

They still have to provide notice to the possessor. Maybe things work differently in rectangular shithole state than here.

So I watched the John Oliver bit on civil forfeiture. Most of the show was spent making fun of in rem suits, which have existed for hundreds of years and aren't unique to civil forfeiture. He talks about the subject for three minutes before he even tries to explain what it is. He says the property is "guilty until proven innocent" which isn't true in the slightest. He spends about 15 seconds on the arguments in favor, then he goes into a series of anecdotes of abuses, most of which aren't even all that egregious and seem to have worked out like they should have (abuse exposed, owner got his property back, etc.). He falsely suggests that people in Philadelphia weren't getting trials because they were (apparently) invited to discuss the case with the DA beforehand, and it was in the courthouse. Heaven forbid! It'd bet dollars to dimes this was actually some kind of procedure to help people file contests. The he concludes that the bad outweighs the good based on conclusory statements that come out of nowhere that he didn't try to prove with his handful of anecdotes. Then we get a three-minute skit making fun of in rem again.

Suffice to say it was about what I was expecting.

I see a no-knock raid in the citizen's future.

A valid point he's making, though. I can see unmarked cars for undercover work and surveillance, but giving out tickets? The hunger for revenue and quotas is outweighed by public safety. If an unmarked car lights me up, I will probably call 911 to verify that the person is an officer, or slowly drive to a parking lot and park at the entrance of Target.

Is Harold Falcon in the clutches of the law?
post #1076 of 6234
According to Bisco, its worse, he's been banned by the styleforum police. If it was regular cops, he'd be out in an hour (though I'm not sure a drunk like him could afford his own retainer).

Can he be bailed out pending an appeal?

Or represented by one of the many eminent SF Lawyers.

We could get up a sort of dream team that would defeat the SF Police in the Court of Public Opinion.

BTW:Besides snarling drunk poasting, what might have the defendant Falcon done to have been banned.

I don't know, and I don't think there is a thread announcing bans and the reason. Looking at his post history, it looks like he may have wandered out of the CESpool with his drunken snark toward what appeared to be spam in the business forum.

Wasn't that originally the point of the transparent moderation thread?

Except now it is not called that anymore...

I couldn't find it. I wish they would reinstate him and give him a final warning.
