Annoying neighbors....

I am sure everyone has at least one of these but when I approached the local news channels to support my story I got the cold shoulder.
The latest issue led to my arrest by an officer that may have been better off to have did a little more investigating before trespassing on my property and then tazering me on false charges.
As it turns out if he would have had ANY kind of evidence maybe I could feel sorry for him but going off of the kids saying they never saw who was outside did not give probable cause for wrongful arrest.
A citizen does not have to talk to an officer if he so chooses and an officer does NOT have the right to detain in any way unless there is evidence. Evidence being the key here. Just because the kids lied by saying they had had problems with me before was not evidence. If by problems you mean I asked for the return of my two daughters skateboards and for the surveillance cameras to not be pointing at my pool deck because I am not comfortable with ANYONE video taping mine or anyone else's kids in bathing suits, then I guess you could say I am a problem.
The rumors that have gone around on this story have been very offensive and hurtful to my family much alone down right lies. If you have a problem with everyone knowing you married your children's babysitter who is only 22 and you are in your forties then make sure your kids do not tell anyone that.
This lawsuit is still an open case so any further harassment or evidence can and will be used.

Just to add to the case 36 hours after being bailed out of jail the local gas station decided it was legal to ban me from there property even though there is and will never be any evidence supporting their case either. Pretty sad how easy it is to lie and get people in trouble without even needing evidence to back anything up. This same station is one which would not ban a customer who was harassing an employee because the customer was a "paying customer".
What I find truly offensive is the CEFCU machine is on their property and they are being paid to have it there but I am not allowed to even use it even though I have been a member for nearly 20 years.

Yeah, I love a good police brutality story and would love to help if you could tell us a little more, that is, if it doesn't affect your lawsuit.

Just had 7th court date and my lawyer made the officer of 5 years for Peoria County look like a 3 year old on the stand......
Still not sure what the heck is gonna happen yet
At this point my lawyer is trying to have the whole thing thrown out for violating my 4th amendment rights. Saying he had no right to detain me unless I was under arrest.
I am majorly bummed because I think this jerk needs something done especially when I can almost guarantee he is friends with either my neighbor or the morons at the gas station that lied to get me banned from there.

No lawsuit pending at this time. Last lawyer spent NO time on this case instead was too arrogant and lazy to actually do a little leg work to help .....
