SSDD

trying to score some xmas money

maybe natives just should not get drunk at a bar

and the elderly couple was stopped, not detained because of an auto theft report and their vehicle matched the description

again, just SSDD with ambulance chasing lawyers taking time off from medication lawsuits and see another venue for quick cash if they can force out of court moola

I think if you were put in handcuffs and were placed on your knees on the side of the road you would consider it more than just stopped.

It sounds like detained to me.

normal police procedure in a felony stop, happens all the time, detained is taken to jail, questioned, placed in a holding cell then released, just depends on what the definition of Is IS lolol. just being stopped for a ticket I guess you could call youself detained from moving. But the lawsuit makes it sound as if they were arrested, booked, fingerprinted and put in a cell which they were not, they were subjected to a by the book felony stop then released when it was determined that they were not car thieves.

How the description in the paper put it. The officer involved in this case appeared very reckless, pulling over a somewhat similar car, with brown people in it, as his only probable cause to pull over this individual. Then it sounds like the incident was esclated by the officer, to handcuffs on the ground. Heck the real fellon, in the stolen car probably drove on by while all of this was going on.

Since this was a CCSD vehicle don't they have special state plates, that are very different from the standard ones.

I think the family has a case and the SJSO will have to pay a settelement of some type or another, Officer Fife will loose his job, and they will do some type of sensitivity training. ect...

Ever since Obama won, the biligaanas aren't hiding their racism. Many Navajos who work for racist,republican biligaanas are seeing their hours cut. There is a biligaana backlash because the Muslim Kenyan kicked sum Mormon but. Now the statewide news is starting to cover what we already knew.

Maybe you should look more into the story and not just read what the money hungry Attorney says. Especially one that is as crooked and dirty as Arlon Stoker. What I have heard they were stopped and detained then let go, the Police Agencies are saying nothing was done wrong by any of the officers involved. Just a money hungry Attorney looking for a quick buck.

I read the story. It had both sides pretty clear. I'm sure if you were pulled over and had what was described you would be looking for the same attorney. And you wouldn't be saying you were detained.

It does not matter if you are red, white, green or blue. Everyone should be treated with respect and dignity unless they do something to forfeit that right. It is enough of an imposition on someone to ask them to pull over and speak with an officer. Way over the line what happened here.

The noble red man needs to stop playing the victim card and start taking responsibility for his own actions.
