And it begins

May 17th, 2011 | 3 Comments | Posted in Cry FREEDOM!, WTF

A few days ago I posted about the fact that Indiana’s Supreme Court essentially threw out the Forth Amendment.

Well, thanks to Stranger, we can now see the result of this monumentally stupid decision.

According to Newton County Sheriff, Don Hartman Sr., random house to house searches are now possible and could be helpful following the Barnes v. STATE of INDIANA Supreme Court ruling issued on May 12th, 2011. When asked three separate times due to the astounding callousness as it relates to trampling the inherent natural rights of Americans, he emphatically indicated that he would use random house to house checks, adding he felt people will welcome random searches if it means capturing a criminal.

Now, there are those that will say “If you’re not a criminal then you have nothing to worry about.”

Really???

How about this case then where the guy arrested was exercising a legal right and was still arrested and is now being charged.  Why?  Because the police in question didn’t like his attitude.

Fiorino said he sat handcuffed in a police wagon while the officers made numerous phone calls to supervisors, trying to find out if they could lock him up.

When they learned that they were in the wrong, they let him go.

But only temporarily. Fiorino posted the audio recordings on youtube, and now they are harassing him again:

A new investigation was launched, and last month the District Attorney’s Office decided to charge Fiorino with reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct because, a spokeswoman said, he refused to cooperate with police… He’s scheduled for trial in July.

If one listens to the audiotapes, it’s hard to imagine how a reasonable person could charge Fiorino (and not the cops) for disorderly conduct.

Now, I come from a family of cops, I served as a MP while I was in the Navy, but if you think every cop out there is a nice guy who won’t go for a little bit of ‘screw you’ just because he doesn’t like something about you, your attitude, or whatever, then I have a bridge to sell you.

These are the kind of things that turn people against the government and against the law.  The laws are supposed to protect us from the abuse of government, not help enable that abuse.
