So where would the problem have been to simply open the door, explain to the officer that he has a medical cert for medical marijuana. If all was legal, he would have been sent on his way.
UNLESS, he was smoking during or prior to driving his vehicle, then he was trying to hide his unlawful act, and the officers have a responsibility to the rest of the citizenship to keep people like this off the street while impaired.
You have never been in court when a cop lied to a judge have you?
Allegations are not proof and an assumption or bogus allegation mean NOTHING !!!
You have never even been a juror have you?
Ya’d think it’d be that simple, right, but innocent civilians are victimized by road cops, including wrongly accused of slurred speech intoxication, & in my case of “throwing a lit cigarette out my window” (illegal in SoCal due to arson & wildfires) it took quite a while of interrogation by an officer completely wrongly convinced what he was just sure his eyes had seen.
A glowingly wholesome natural health proponent w/ MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivities) terribly allergic to cigarette smoke, I was leaving the chiropractic health clinic where I worked when the cop stopped me & insisted on going through my car ashtray (filled w/ toll coins), my car had no cig lighter, & I awkwardly reached back for my purse in the backseat for my ID & showed no cigs in purse either. Of course he couldn’t smell smoke from the car, no stains on my fingers or cigarette wrinkles on my face, no husky smoker’s voice. I’ve been waived thru checkpoints hearing “You don’t look like you even drink coffee!” (I don’t.)
I suggested to the cop that my car might have made someone’s cigarette ahead of me fly upward, but he said he was sure he had seen it fall downward from my car. Finally he reluctantly let me go, lacking any evidence for his wrong conclusion & to this day may still believe I was hiding my “guilt”; but instead I hope he always remembers including in court testimonies by him & others how we can be deceived in what we’re sure our eyes have seen, evident that really rattled him.

So, they are saying it’s not that simple. They, the signatory, need to define then, when it’s not ok to obey a Peace Officers orders. Let’s hear it.

I refuse as it is extortion. If you fail to participate in either the high dollar donation, which I cannot support, of agree to get drenched with a bucket of ice water for the privilege of donating much less is not much of a choice. You are almost guilted into participating one way or the other
"I refuse as it is extortion."
You... feel extorted when your friends or family ask you to donate to help research a cure for ALS?
That's fine. Don't participate in the challenge, make a video, or pass it on. But please at least donate. If your sole objection is that you feel extorted to participate in the challenge, just ignore the challenge itself and donate quietly and without fanfare.
Your help could literally help save the lives of thousands of Americans.

What you think of as a kind act, only enables women or people to continue in that fashion. They needed to be taken down and booked.

Wonder how long it will be till Obama releases him for another deserter or taitor.
Not only that, but how do you explain that mysterious ring that floated along and above the ghost. Weird!

It’s crazy how this Texas TV report was so slanted against the teacher. Hey when I have my Mexican friends over who speak spanish, I ask them to speak English while in my home. They have no problem with that.
These are kids too, what are they saying in Spanish that the teacher and others who don’t speak Spanish saying. Mostly they are speaking behind backs in front of backs using their language as a barrier. That is absolutely wrong. They are in the United States of America, where English IS The language spoken. I don’t care if there isn’t a law that states so, our Constitution, and our Bill of Rights were written and spoken in English, and until recently, it was just plain polite to speak the official language in others company.
I don’t care what they speak at home, or among themselves when they are not in the company of English only speakers.
English is the language and should be spoken in all learning institutions, except for other language classes.

So. Story doesn’t tell us how the old man is doing.

Yeah, don’t think the Brits would care on iota what Eric Holder of Janet Reno say.

It’s idiots like him that explains why Republicans cannot get a hold in Illinois.

I hate to say anything against the Colonel, but he is off the mark on this. If Mr. Cosby had used the words “Islamists” then the Colonels comments would be spot on, but painting all Muslims this way is wrong. I have traveled the world and have been amazed at how humble and giving most Muslims are. They would give you the shirt off their back if you as much as stared at it. Always quick to share a meal with you and welcome you into their homes. These experiences have shown me that their is a difference between Muslims, and Islamists. We all need to make that distinction.
At least he is taking action where Obama is strangely absent.

You ask us to know more about him. So, give us your sources on your allegations.

The police are totally in the wrong in arresting the Father and detaining the child and making him answer questions without an adult present. Absolutely grounds for a huge lawsuit.
However, he didn’t help the situation by becoming upset and yelling. If he would have just answered direct questions of the officer, then ask calmly what he is being detained/arrested for, it may have had a totally different outcome. High emotions are most always met with the same, even law enforcement officers, if not especially.
So your answer is "become belligerent with a cop, then sue the city?" That sounds like a "rule for radical". Calmly and politely answer the questions, walk away, THEN rant and rave. He even admitted all they asked his son was "name, address, etc"

If you look up “Terrorist” in an encyclopedia or even a dictionary, it has this girls face in it. She looks like a terrorist right? TSA just doing their due diligence….
Shelby, if you are reading this, and I hope you don’t get caught up any further, this is what adults call sarcasm. Of course you don’t look like a Terrorist. You look like a beautiful angel. And please remember that these insensitive TSA agents will never change that.

“Lol Allen West? He has about as much chance at getting a nomination as Donald Trump. Allen is a great guy, but he just cant shut his yapper and stop saying incendiary things.”
I loved Romney, good guy, honest and virtuous. The only thing is he didn’t open his mouth enough to get through the skulls of these dimwits that voted for Nobama. The sad fact is, I can’t remember in recent years that a race was won, without some kind of negative ads. Well we need to bring out the negatives of our opponents. Call it fact checks so it doesn’t sound so negative.
Romney and his camp should have been nailing Nobama on Benghazi. They chose to remain pretty much silent,. I think that is why he isn’t the President. Sad.

So, he said he supports traditional marriage. I support traditional marriage. Do gays support traditional marriage? If they don’t they are certainly disrespecting their parents, which the vast majority had parents of traditional marriage. So who is being dishonest and disrespecting of “others beliefs”?
