I think he should sue them for everything he can get. They invaded his home, held him and his wife at gunpoint, physically assaulted him. The only way these jackbooted thugs will ever get the message to lay off the people is if the people call them out on it.

The outrageous part is not the fact that they arrested him but the totally unprofessional conduct of the keystones on site. Threw him down a flight of stairs? What if they had broken his neck and he wound up paralyzed? What then? OOPSIE?

Typical police behavior - a military assault on someone suspected of downloading pictures while the chickenshit pussies won't do a thing to stop a thousand times more drug, murder and robbery cases. Maybe it's because those bad guys have guns or hang in gangs and the police are afraid of not being alive to collect that pension. Maybe next they can set up an ambush at a stop light to tazer some high school girl talking on a cell phone.

I am wondering why Hochul always takes the porn cases?

There's an imbecile ranting like a cop sucking tough guy on the Buffalo News about the big "WiFi" scare. He's convinced the FBI is doing no wrong running up in banker's houses late at night playing army guy on my dime. The funny part is the banker wasn't up on all the new cop-acronym-fever lingo and he said he had no idea who the hell they were. These people should get up to speed with better investigative techniques before they really get a lot of people killed the FBI is pretending their in the lead with this big news push. Sure people should secure their wifi but some people clearly enjoy bullying people without repercussion and making any excuse that will do when their lack of attention to simple details is astonishing.

I expect the first thing they'll say is how we all must want pedos trading porn because we're upset because a bunch of overgrown aholes are booting people's doors with alarming frequency because they lack simple logic skills and are immune as anonymous bullies can be. This is the age of the Cult of Public Safety.
