So what ever happened to probable cause? This is harassment. What ever happened to our individual rights that protect us from this sort of abuse? If the girls did nothing wrong, there was absolutely no lawful reason to approach them. Its a shame, but this day and age law enforcement will trample all over your rights unless you assert them yourself... Contact the ACLU or some rights organization and sue the crap out of them!
Our rights have gone up in smoke. Cops have turned into militarised Brownshirts, the Constitution is in tatters and judges get kickbacks for sending people to privatised prisons. Free country?, only in your dreams.

you're right, they will have to pay for our freedom with their lives.

it may sound like i'm not sad but honestly i am sad, but so is God sad when people choose satan. every human is given free choice and they have made theirs. we (as God) will simply respond properly to their actions.

well, it doesn't matter if you choose to believe in God or don't,
but the rest of my post you should at least comprehend and i hope agree with,

so if you do agree with the non-God portion of my post, please then focus on the actual evil that's occuring and not waste time on an argument "is there a God" or not. that's as wasteful as arguing about grammar or spelling while being knifed in the neck.

if a policestate thug is shooting at you or even pointing a gun in your face, it's not time to argue with another person also being victimized if there's a God, it's time to shove his gun up the cop's ass and pull the trigger. let's keep focused on the evil and fight it harshly. i'm prepared.

in response to an earlier post, i also was brought up in a middle class family and taught to respect the police...now i agree that the police are to be feared.

pure and simple, a badge inspires fear.

police with a badge = gangmember with a gun

As were we all. As we get older we discover that cops are people too, subject to a whole host of human behaviors that in their case, have a tendency to be inflicted on the innocent. The answer? insist on better screening on applicants.

I agree with you that the police are people too. I have met some very good cops in my time and on many occasions they have to deal with the lowest form of human life and for that reason I'm always willing to give them some slack. My problem is with Charlottesville. When cops, Commonwealth Attorneys, Judges and others in law enforcement are corrupt and a part of the UVA good old boys network and think they can cover up anything it becomes very troubling. There are no checks and balances in C'Ville. No oversight of LE. They do as they please.

Chapman should have never considered charging these girls after reviewing the 911 call and the police interviews of these girls. It beggars belief. He charged them because he was told to. My guess is it was to cover up for the ABC cops. There is no way any prosecutor acting in good faith (which is not the case in C'ville) could trump up charges for a big screw up. The 911 tapes proves the girls were scared and tried taking off. It was not in defiance but for fear of being hurt. The 911 call is concurrent. Furthermore when he discovered the alleged alcohol was water that should have been the end of the ordeal.

Chapman should resign for his total disregard for his office as Commonwealth Attorney. The charges should have never been filed. There is no excuse. None.

Since the office of Virginia's AG is asleep, he's running for Governor, perhaps the US AG's office can investigate Chapman.

Chapman has failed time and again in upholding the law equally.

The city of Torrance denied an excessive force complaint filed by a man who was shot at by that city's police agency in a case of mistaken identity during a frenzied manhunt for an ex-LAPD officer on a deadly rampage.
David Perdue was on his way to the beach for an early-morning surf session on Feb. 7 before work when Torrance police officers fired at his Honda truck without any warning, according to court documents filed in federal court in Los Angeles in June.
Perdue, 38, who is white, and under 6-feet tall, was mistaken for Dorner, a black man, who stood 6 foot 2.
Police shot and wounded two women who were in a blue pickup truck delivering newspapers. The city of Los Angeles was ordered to pay the women a $4.2 million settlement in that case.

The story about the women getting shot in the back by cops is one I use as an example of over zealous cops. The problem? most people don't concern themselves with these sad stories that take place all over the country every day. If it didn't happen here it didn't happen so most folks are unaware of the Neanderthal cops stalking honest citizens everywhere. And we let it happen. All to often these rogue cops don't loose their jobs. The insurance companies pick up the tab and life goes on, if your lucky.

swat raided Kokesh's house Tuesday night.

they had over 20 officers, an MRAP vehicle, their usual fleet of cruisers, and TWO HELICOPTERS,

do you realize how much MONEY all that costs?

you paid for it.

they just spent your money on that, instead of solving murders and rapes in your town and instead of patrolling and cleaning up the actually dangerous areas (that they are afraid to even go near).

It's not like this loon was minding his own business. He provoked the raid by posting youtubes of loading a shotgun on Freedom Plaza. Ya'll gun nuts welcome this attention to further your guns everywhere agenda.

This is about as stupid as anything I've heard of in a long time. We are soooooo lame! One of our own, a poor little scared white girl, gets arrested and frightened and we want to storm the streets and protest, and you can't keep the story out of the news. A minority gets profiled, and the newspapers and news stations are silent, and pretend that they don't see or hear it. I'm willing to bet that this has happened at least a few times in the past month to some frightened minority that ended up roughed up, tased, and booked, and yet NO ONE came to that person's defense, and I wouldn't be surprised if that person isn't still in jail. I'm sick of hearing about this broad already. We have morons now talking about "police state" and other idiocy. My fellow white people: Wake up! This is why the rest of the world have problems with us and our way of thinking. Pathetic.

Don't judge every ABC/POLICE Officer by a the actions of a few. I agree what they did was very wrong and they should be held accountable for their actions. They should be disciplined and fired if necessary. Those young women will be scarred for life and will never be the same. I pray that this comes to a good ending for all.

That's the problem, the bad cops DON'T get fired, as a result the good cops are left having to live in the shadow of bad cops. The blue line rules.
