The fact cops think breaking into houses is a legally valid way to "investigate" is telling enough of their mindset and why misconduct is rampant. His complete incompetence with a lock pick is also very telling.

This is the root problem here. That officer should be coughing up treble damages from her own pockets and retirement funds. Further she should be barred from any kind of activity that may look like law enforcement including a minimum wage security guard. This is the kind of outrageous nonsense that more decent cops should be stepping in and doing something. But again notice that 5 male cops stood there and did nothing. Therefore they should be made to pay as well and barred from law enforcement.Officials did not find that the officer violated any city procedures with her search, according to the lawsuit. She retired nine months after the incident.
Maybe Andy from Mayberry
Read the article before pounding the keyboard. The person doing the search was female:she should file a rape charge. No female chaperones on a female physical search??
Yes.If you remember the case of the police doing $400K of damage to an innocent persons home while after a shoplifter - a Federal Appeals Court just rules the police owe them nothing (they originally offered $5K).
Don’t call the police - especially up armored, battering ram equipped departments.
whatchu say?Imagine if people held their police to a standard.
She was in a cell and under control, non-combative and not trying to harm herself. The male officer was clearly verbally escalating and not trying to resolve a situation. He was picking a fight in front of his groupies. From that point on the entire situation is wrong and assault.I am so sick of this cop bashing. Do you have any idea how hard it is to secure webbing when someone is thrashing around..? Medals issued for all involved.
