…The United States Border Patrol AND the Arizona Dept. of “Public Safety” (that’s a frakkin’ joke, and I should know, I lived in Tempe for 10 years) for beating and tazering Pastor Steven Anderson inside the borders of the United States. Hitleresque enough for you bambibots?
An Arizona pastor – Tasered, bloodied by broken glass and sporting 11 stitches in his head – claims his injuries came from being stopped at a Border Patrol checkpoint 75 miles inside the U.S. and then being battered by police for refusing to allow agents to search his vehicle.
The incident earlier this week highlights tension between constitutional rights, the issue of border security and a controversial Supreme Court ruling that grants an exceptional level of police authority near the Mexican border.
Pastor Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe claims he did nothing to deserve his eventual arrest and believes that when he refused to allow the search of his car he was simply standing up for his Fourth Amendment rights, which protect him against unreasonable search without a warrant.
Anderson further questions why the Border Patrol is allowed to stop and search cars at a checkpoint along Interstate 8, 75 miles inland of where the highway nears the Mexican border at Yuma, Ariz.
“I was in the United States! I had crossed no international border!” writes Anderson in commentary accompanying a video he made about his experience.
“I didn’t have any drugs; I didn’t have a human beings in my car,” he claims in the video itself. “Why is this happening in the United States of America?”
Make sure you go over and read the whole article.
Guess what? This American citizen spent the night in jail, his arraignment will be on Fridaywhere he will be pleading NOT GUILTY!
Jesus, Mary & Joseph – this qualifies for the “Today’s Are You Freakin’ Kidding Me Award?” Also!!!
Officer Robert Powell actually looks like Reinhard Heydrich
…Dallas Police Officer Robert Powell for delaying 26-year-old NFL running back Ryan Moats, and threatening him with arrest for running a traffic light while he was driving his wife and another relative to see his dying mother-in-law, Mr. Moats was detained in the parking lot and while speaking with Officer Powell, his mother-in-law died.
Remember folks – according to the police, we are all criminals that they just haven’t caught yet; and if you read the Constitution or have a Ron Paul bumper-sticker, you may be a domestic terrorist.
Dallas Police Chief David Kunkle stood in front of a dozen news cameras this afternoon at police headquarters to apologize for the behavior of an officer who stopped a family outside a hospital emergency room.
Kunkle said Officer Robert Powell has been placed on paid administrative leave in connection with an incident last week in which he stopped a family rushing to visit a dying mother, detaining them for 13 minutes to write a traffic ticket
“His behavior in my opinion, did not exhibit the common sense, discretion, the compassion that we expect our officers to exhibit,” the chief told a packed audience of media outlets that included Inside Edition.
During the traffic stop, caught on the officer’s in-car camera, Powell berated the driver, 26-year-old NFL running back Ryan Moats, and threatened him with arrest for running a traffic light.
“I can screw you over,” said Powell, 25. “I’d rather not do that.”
At one point during today’s news conference, Kunkle seemed to restrain himself from being even more candid with his views on the incident.
“When we in the command staff reviewed the tapes,” he said, “we were embarrassed, disappointed — it’s hard to find the right words and still be professional in my role as a police chief.”
The chief also praised Moats and his family for how they handled the officer’s behavior.
“They exercised extraordinary patience, restraint, dealing with the behavior of our officer,” Kunkle said. “At no time did Mr. Moats identify himself as an NFL football player or expect any kind of special consideration. He handled himself very, very well.”
These instances of fascist police officers are NOT few and far between, and while our Founding Fathers are SPINNING IN THEIR GRAVES, the dead Nazis and SS are partying! Welcome to Fascist America! ….and they wonder why gun sales are soaring?
