We’re All Criminals and Outlaws in the Eyes of the American Police State

Police State

Consider what happened to Nicole Gainey, the Florida mom who was arrested and charged with child neglect for allowing her 7-year-old son to visit a neighborhood playground located a half mile from their house.

For the so-called “crime” of allowing her son to play at the park unsupervised, Gainey was interrogated, arrested and handcuffed in front of her son, and transported to the local jail where she was physically searched, fingerprinted, photographed and held for seven hours and then forced to pay almost $4000 in bond in order to return to her family. Gainey’s family and friends were subsequently questioned by the Dept. of Child Services. Gainey now faces a third-degree criminal felony charge that carries with it a fine of up to $5,000 and 5 years in jail.

For Denise Stewart, just being in the wrong place at the wrong time, whether or not she had done anything wrong, was sufficient to get her arrested.

The 48-year-old New York grandmother was dragged half-naked out of her apartment and handcuffed after police mistakenly raided her home when responding to a domestic disturbance call. Although it turns out the 911 call came from a different apartment on a different floor, Stewart is still facing charges of assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest.

  1. Then there are the false arrest suits against the cities that promote this kind of police work. They do total up to quite a sum of money against the cities.
    All of this takes time to work thru the system.
    In the meantime, we are very close to bankrupt as a country. Why? Try 500,000 dollar drones.
    Or how about cameras at the lights. Those lights are set to cause crime. They are too short. But the contract with the camera company specifies this illegal time setting. People run reds and people have accidents because of these camera settings. That too is going through the courts.
    Never authorize government to do something for your own good. It is almost always something the devil wants. He has played this particular card so often you would think law makers would know better. They don’t.
    Lawyers are part of the problem. They spend 3 years learning to create problems and one year learning to solve them. No wonder our Congress is causing more problems than they solve. They are almost all lawyers.
    My broker in the Real Estate business cured me of legalese. He said that plain, normal, everyday English in a contract is almost impossible to break. You get into legal language and you almost always open yourself up for legal problems down the road.
