BC Law Enforcement hiding behind their badge...

So sick of certain law enforcement officers getting away with ANYTHING they want to in Swain County just because of who they are & who they know. A certain incident I heard about this past weekend really upset me. A young boy, 15 or 16, decided he was fed up with the domestic violence, constant arguing and basically being mistreated in his dad the cop's house. His mother & stepdad picked him up and took him to his dad's to get his things - his dad was home, the mom & stepdad didnt even set foot on the father's property. After they left, they went to the child's cousin's house up the road from the dad's to pick up the son's atv. Well, dad the cop call the sheriff's dept - his employer and reported the atv stolen and gave a description of the stepdads truck. They were pulled over & after telling the situation to 2 deputies, they were asked to go to the office & speak to another officer. They did & agreed with the offiver that the atc should be impounded until ownership could be established. They were free to leave, except the son asked if his dad would bring him the rest of his clothes. They were told to wait & the dad would bring them back. Well guess who showed up? The magistrate who happens to be big buddies with the dad. The mom, stepdad & child were then place under arrest for felony larceny, searched and placed in holding cells. The magistrate brought them in after a while and told them that the dad did not wish to pursue the charges and they were free to go. WOW! I call that abuse of power from all aspects. Not to mention the fact that any man who would even toy with the idea of charging his own son is a piece of crap to say the least. It's ridiculous the way the law was manipulated in this situation but I guess that's pretty common with that joke of a department.
