Since they want to lay the weapons charge do to involuntary admission to a mental facility that opens the door for a plea of not guilty by reason of mental defect. Charging him in the death of his daughter by the DA I can’t really support, it has the effect of walking into his cell while he is cuffed and bitch slapping him. When you fire a weapon at someone you are responsible for what you hit even if it is someone behind them this officer didn’t have a clear shot. As a CHL holder I would be charged in her death even if I had shot him in self defense, so why does the constable get a pass?

Savage.24 what exactly makes you so superior to others that you call them stupid? I don’t care who someone supports calling them stupid usually means you have a baseless argument, not to mention it’s not very Christian of you. Trumph has a long and documented history of being a wheeling, dealing, progressive democrat supporting, crony capitalist until now. Now he is a conservative, constitution loving, free market capitalist who cares about illegal immigration and implementing the rule of law while regularly attending the christian church of his choice. This is a complete 180 from who he was before he decided he wanted my vote. To be fair you never mentioned Trumph, but like Trumph calling people you don’t know stupid I just assumed it, please forgive me if there’s no connection.

It needs to be recognized that our military is a target. In the war on terror the terrorist are just like any criminal and completely unconcerned with gun free zones, in fact, they prefer them. This will happen again, and we should allow our service men and women the simple choice to be armed at all times, or whenever they choose. If in uniform they open carry and in civilian clothes they can conceal carry with active military ID. America is safer with them armed and ready and so are they.

Maybe you need to see how the other side is behaving. I try not to participate by calling names or use disparaging remarks, but your comment implies those to the left of the Blaze fans don’t spew hate and negativity, this simply isn’t true. If you’re left leaning why are you here? If you can’t see that liberalism will be the death of the constitution and the American way of life you don’t need someone here to sway you, you’re a lost cause. Americans live in a perpetual police state that is only getting worse, the government bullies the people, and pigeon holes them with new laws and taxes every year. We sentence people to 5 years for rape and 20 years for drug possession if that doesn’t say police state what will. Socialist ideology is how all communism starts and liberalism, corporatism, and stateism, all do the same thing they rob us of our individual freedom and sovereignty while extracting our earnings in the name of the common good. Who’s common good? It sure as hell isn’t mine.

She was in New York and had not crossed any borders.

If you want to give your rights away politely and be obedient to your masters it’s your choice to make.
May 10, 2015 at 2:23pm
This happened in New York not even a border state and if they act with the authority they actually have it is not a problem.
May 10, 2015 at 2:06pm
And last time I checked being an ass standing up for your own constitutionally guaranteed rights was still legal.
 May 10, 2015 at 1:45pm
Not detained is being free to go with all your personal property.
The act of taking and keeping so much as your drivers license constitutes legal detention so not letting her leave with her car was legally detaining her.
 May 10, 2015 at 1:40pm
Just be a good little sheep and obey, right?
 May 10, 2015 at 1:38pm
They were not at the border as far as I can tell but the story doesn’t make it clear where exactly they were. The government granting itself permission to violate constitutional rights at locations other than the border does not mean it’s right or constitutionally legal.
 May 10, 2015 at 1:32pm
They had no right to taser her she will likely win her lawsuit. Looking nervous is not probable cause nor is it legally definable. She is legally detained at the point the officer tells her she is free to go, but her car is staying there or he would spike her tires. Everything beyond this is the officers attempting to bully and abuse her she was not interfering with their activities she was already legally detained by their actions they should have simply asked to cuff her, not use a taser. This was a completely inappropriate escalation of force and another fine example of the kind of abuse of authority that has become a deep seated mistrust of authority across the nation.
Thank goodness you were there so that you can now explain what happened so clearly.

No its not apples to oranges. I’m talking about any doctor who has the necessary skills and training to do an abortion yet they don’t offer or perform that service unless the life of their patient is st risk. A lot of doctors don’t offer this service because they are morally opposed to it, shouldn’t they be forced to do abortions using your logic.

The Republican establishment is the reason Obama is president. The press pumps out propaganda and makes up issues. They would ask a democrat candidate “How many died on the titanic” They answer 1517 and oh wow they’re obviously genius material. Then they ask the republican to “please name them its alright you can stop after 20 or 30″ Well they are to stupid to live if they can’t do it, and the game goes on.

Resistance is futile they should just prepare to be assimilated
I have read several of your post and really only have one question for you. Why should the Federal Government have a role in any of this. Every bit of it is outside the scope of its role according to the constitution. The government and its courts giving itself permission to expand its role as the States and people sit idol allowing it to happen is what has divided us as a people. Do you even know what freedom should look like? Marriage was not defined by mankind or any court it was defined by God, if the States must have a role in it, it should be for the legal purpose of domestic unions where gender is irrelevant. Government should have no authority to force me to pay for someones birth control or abortion. Government bailouts are illegal and should never have happened it is not the place for the public treasury to be used in this fashion. If you don’t think net neutrality is the first step in control over the internet you should look at the history of gun rights. Why should I need a permit to carry a gun and some states have laws with prison time for just having a gun in your car without their permission. The second amendment was supposed to be a right does that sound like a right to you. The internet is dangerous to the people in power how do you think they will use their authority over it?
March 18, 2015 at 5:01pm
Why exactly was this an issue fox? The cases of potential abuse had been settled and were no longer an issue. The internet worked fine without government involvement so why do you think the government exercising regulatory authority over the internet is a good thing? How is it this story stayed alive and got the air time it did? Propaganda is an insidious thing telling people what to think and who to trust. When you point at conservatives and say you don’t think you might look in a mirror and ask yourself “have I been manipulated into the opinion I now have?”
arent you the same with the whole "hands off my net!" movement? how it was sponsored by the major ISPs? Its kinda funny that conservitives are similar as liberals these days.
the silver line is that net neturality is what we have now and had before. Net Neturality is the internet constitution. and saying that net neturality is a threat to the internet is like saying the first amendment is a threat to free speech.
and the only reason why obama threw his hat in the ring for net neutrality is this:
once upon a time, obama tried killing net nutrality by siding with the ISPs. Unfortunately, that choice ment that ISPs would get all the power and obama would have none. Knowing that he is a rock in a hard place, Obama's only chance at getting out is by siding with those fighting for Net Neutrality. Though Obama would never have the american internet he dreamed of, but to him, its better than becoming a servant to ISPs along with many other americans. the moral of the story, Dont make deals with evil corps, even if you are an evil politican.
There that is the story, now quit going after net neutrality.

For all those who think anyone should be forced to provide a service against their will. Based on religious convictions should doctors with the necessary skills be forced to perform abortions? Isn’t it discrimination against women if a doctor won’t perform abortions? If I provide a service to the public that involves my personal skill, or artistic abilities, these things belong to me individually, and although used in business I retain my rights to them as a sovereign individual person. Government through legislation, or regulation, encroaching on my liberty, forcing me to provide my unique skills or artistic abilities under any circumstance by threat of fine or incarceration is a violation of my human rights, and the very liberty our constitution sought to insure was protected for every citizen.
your argument is apples to oranges, an abortion doctor can not refuse to perform and abortion due to someone race, creed, or sexual orientation. I podiatrist cant not be forced to perform abortions.

I added to my original post which was identical to yours with these questions it answers some of them.
 February 3, 2015 at 10:49am
This was taken from the original story and it sounds like they didn’t want to take his money because he had made it inconvenient for them, and were asking him to leave with his money, taxes unpaid, I think. The real kicker is the police officer AND the tax assessor assaulted him when he pulled away from being handcuffed for breaking some imaginary made up stuff that was apparently an arrest worthy crime.
According to the affidavit:
The deputy was at the Annex, 600 Scott Street, just after 2 p.m. when Wichita County Tax Assessor Collector Tommy Smyth asked Timothy Andrew Norris, 27, to leave the tax office. Smyth accused Norris of disrupting the operation and efficiency of the tax office by attempting to pay $600-worth of property taxes with $1 bills. The bills were said to be folded so tightly it “required tax office personnel approximately six minutes to unfold each bill.”
When Norris refused, he was arrested and charged with criminal trespass. As the deputy grabbed Norris’ arm to place him in handcuffs, Norris pulled away. He pulled away again when the deputy went to grab his arm a second time, causing the deputy and Smyth to wrestle Norris to the ground to detain him — bringing an additional charge of resisting arrest.
Norris’ bail totaled $500 for both charges. He was not in the Wichita County Jail Monday.
Thanks for the follow up; and for doing the Blaze's job for them.
Charges still seem a bit bogus, apparently you can get arrested for any reason these days and the resisting arrest is added because a normal rational person WOULD protest being arrested. Go figure. Don't really agreed with how he went about his protest, $1 dollar bills would have been annoying enough, but a refusal to accept and then arrest seems over the top. They could have taken the money, and told him they would mail him a receipt once it was counted - at their leisure, or given a contingency receipt, lots of options besides arrest. Original story doesn't say if Norris got belligerent when asked to leave.
