LAPD – Impounding Cars Of Citizens But Not Illegals

March 24, 2011

Los Angeles Police Department officers manning sobriety checkpoints will no longer, as a matter of department policy, impound cars driven by unlicensed drivers. That is unless the unlicensed driver is a United States citizen or lawful resident

Yes, you read it correctly: Two drivers are stopped at a sobriety checkpoint in Los Angeles and both are found to be sober, but lacking a driver’s license. The first, a U.S. citizen, receives a citation and stands by and watches as his car is towed away to the impound yard.

The second unlicensed driver, an illegal, is also issued a citation, but he is given a “reasonable period of time” to give custody of his car to a licensed driver, who will presumably drive it to the unlicensed driver’s home — or just around the corner and out of the cops’ view — where the unlicensed driver will be free to jump back behind the wheel and ply the roadways until he has the misfortune of running into another one of those bothersome sobriety checkpoints, where the process can begin anew.

Misbehave On A Plane, Get A Felony Conviction…

January 20, 2009

“At least 200 passengers have been convicted of felonies under the Patriot Act, often for behavior involving raised voices and profanity. Some experts say airlines are misusing the law.”

“Tamera Jo Freeman was on a Frontier Airlines flight to Denver in 2007 when her two children began to quarrel over the window shade and then spilled a Bloody Mary into her lap.

She spanked each of them on the thigh with three swats. It was a small incident, but one that in the heightened anxiety after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks would eventually have enormous ramifications for Freeman and her children.

The incident aboard the Frontier flight ultimately led to Freeman’s arrest and conviction for a federal felony defined as an act of terrorism under the Patriot Act, the controversial federal law enacted after the 2001 attacks in New York and Washington.

Freeman is one of at least 200 people on flights who have been convicted under the amended law. In most of the cases, there was no evidence that the passengers had attempted to hijack the airplane or physically attack any of the flight crew. Many have simply involved raised voices, foul language and drunken behavior.”

This is abuse of the law pure and simple.

Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean

January 20, 2009

So scum-bag Bush FINALLY got off his ass and did a half-right. He commuted Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean’s sentences. Of course, the right thing would have been full-pardons… TWO-YEARS AGO!!!!!!

Heck, the real correct action would have been to not prosecute them in the first place (a la Timothy Geithner).

Anyway, I for one welcome our country destroying half-white messianic overlord president! I’m so glad to see Bush gone!
