WTF over-zealous police? - Page 51

Well at least Posner called him out for being an asshole (even if he had to rule that the warrant itself was valid). Not the kind of case I am used to reading Posner's opinions on.

The judge would have said to "work it out privately" with somebody who's growing 50 pot plants?

Isn't that what he said, though? That he consented to come outside, then he consented to do the gunshot-residue test, and he thinks it was the right call?

That's part of how the cops get you, this idea that if you refuse their requests they'll do something crazy or illegal or stalk you until they find some excuse to arrest you. But by and large, in the real world they don't do stuff like that.

On the other hand, people consent to stuff that lands them in prison all the time.

People always talk about what a great cash crop marijuana is, but if you have 50 plants and that doesn't produce enough oil to save ONE little girl, then I don't think it has very good yields.

Considering the cop's bias (again, if the cop had been honest) I would hope so.

The best policy is to keep cops out of your life. Don't call them, don't talk to them, don't walk past them.

There's no situation so fucked the presence of cops can't make worse.

The authorities in Prince William County, Virginia, are pursuing child pornography charges against a 17 year old who exchanged nude picture texts with his 15-year-old girlfriend. The police have even filed a warrant that would permit them to take the teen to the hospital, give him an erection-producing injection, and photograph his penis. Prosecutors want to compare this photograph to the one the teen sent to his girlfriend, establishing that they depict the same thing.

Seems legit.

Shouldn't the girl be charged with possession of child pornography as well?
post #763 of 6203
No, she's the "victim".

In case anyone is wondering how will they ensure he gets an erection.

"Alprostadil is sold in the United States as urethral suppositories and in injectable form. The suppositories are sold under the brand name MUSE. The injectable forms are Edex and Caverject. Muse delivers alprostadil as a penile suppository, inserted into the urethra, at least ten minutes before the erection will be needed. Caverject and Edex are similarly fast-acting, but instead are injected by syringe directly into the corpus cavernosum of the penis."
