You help put them on the same page by providing them with the exact letter statute which you then demonstrate compliance with.
There are many laws out there that are cut and dry that many new and old beat cops try and put their spin on, so as ood as your intentions may be untill you can remove the human factor from the person wearing the badge your utopian world will never be.
It is pretty sad when the public has to inform officers as to the letter of the law.
Take your pick of profession, very few experts exist in a specific field and then even if they are well vesed they have to execute.
It was actually quite shocking to me when I first joined the sheriff's department as to how little law most of the officers actually knew - and didn't act on their own interpretations of the law - but what they thought the law was. I harped on my guys pretty hard about it..
Still nothing earth shattering that you've wrote. Just a lot of you liking to read what you type. But that's ok, soap boxes are a plenty on CLSB.
Yes! I'm for real!
I guess that's why they would bail folks out that were in compliance and wrongly arrested, and fund their legal defense from donations.
That's GREAT! And how much time do you need to spend in a cell waiting for bail? and how much time is wasted in the courtroom, and your record is now in jeapordy, etc....
Dont get me wrong, if your obeying the law and get burned that's fucked up, but if you want to be the marter who fights the law just to prove a point......... by all means you get what you deserve. Do it the right way in the courtroom and not like a cowboy. but if anyone wants to go the Joan of Arch route by all means go ahead. As a matter of fact PM me your measurments and i will build you a solid OAK cross for you to carry and get nailed to you in your quest.
That's how these cases went to court to begin with.
Blame your judicial system if that's not were they started, cause the stand should have been made there. If your LE you should know these things, you swore to uphold these laws.
They did plenty of good, and got legal definitions clarified in points of law.
revert back to point 1. All worthless due to interpretation and execution at the officer level
