What is up with the police in Peterborough. I was legally parked in my car on side of road after taking some photo's of historic sites. Barney Fife Peterborough Gestapo cop shows up. I was not in violation of any rules. You do not have to give your id to the police unless there is an official investigation - I know - I work at a law firm. I ask Barney Fife if this is an official investigation otherwise I don't need to give my id.

He threatens to give me a ticket for being parked on the side of road - where I am legally parked.

Rather than press my luck - I give him my id.

He goes back in his barneyfifemobile and apparently records my license info.



What recourse do I have? I feel my rights were violated and I am pissed that I was doing nothing wrong but got hassled by Gestapo Peterborough cop. Who can I complain to? Not the police chief? Maybe the mayor?

This was a civil rights violation. You have to have reasonable cause for the police to stop you, interrogate you, ask for your id. I think I will put up 100 websites warning people not to go to Peterborough and not to do business with Peterborough.

Your recourse is the legal system and the courts.
I spent years working in forensics. I graduated from the police acedemy in NH to learn data evidence and collection. I learned also how many new and seasoned officers really did not know the system or choose to push their job limitations to the limits.

You already have the officer's name. You may wish to contact the police chief of that town and ask for a meeting. At that meeting, you should ask the chief what documented history has been brought against the officer in the past three years. If the chief refuses, offer to hold your own private investigation with outside forensic/legal experts and that you will be letting the media know. If the chief feels threatened, remind him/her of the due process and legal system and rights of the people.

Good Luck.

Be nice!

There are "cities" in Florida with 200 people and Keene with 25,000 calls itself a city. It is only a form of government not always a population, Burt.
