Police harassment: This is a recent e-mail to me concerning police harassment-- Hello, So far I am

This is a recent e-mail to me concerning police harassment--

Hello,

So far I am still dealing with a four-year-old in the house and full time work is hard to come by here in Minnesota. I have two degrees in criminal justice and paralegal, in which case I am not an attorney but should you need one I need more information from you.

However, without knowing your son’s name and birthdate I will not be able to look into the background history of your son without your help. All information is confidential between you and I. I need to know what State you live in because most States have court information online while other States you must obtain copies from the courthouse.

Different states have different laws and principles, but I am certain that if your son has to take any medication prescribed by a physician should have no bearing whether the police had probable cause to stop him or not. Quite honestly, if the police had several run ins with your son while he is running around with known criminals or drug dealer then the police are going to “suspect” that your son is also a criminal by association.

I had the same problem growing up in Albert Lea, MN and I moved to the Twin Cities to solve my problem. The change of scenery and meeting different people solved my problem. If you live in a small town then I suggest for your son to move away where he is not the bread and butter for the justice system there. Another way to deal with this is to file a formal complaint with the police citizens review board or other police review board in your area, and/or contact the public defenders office for help.

The sad fact is that it is very difficult to discredit a police officer while in office hiding behind his or her “shield.” In which case, you may have to file a civil lawsuit against the police officers involved with your son’s harassment. The burden of proof can be shown by the preponderance of the evidence you collected. Be sure that you get copies of all arrest reports, police notes, or whatever shows up.

In addition, I found this article published on Ehow.com--

How Can I Stop the Police From Harassing Me?

Most police have good intentions, but there are exceptions. Unjustified harassment from the police is a frightening and unsettling experience. It is important that people know what their rights are when it comes to dealing with the police. Ultimately, police are trying to do a job and keep the general populace safe, however, at times they go beyond the boundaries of their job and conduct harassing behavior. If you feel like you are being harassed by the police, you have to become active in trying to stop it.


Instructions

1
Learn your rights. Contact the local police department and ask them what rights you have when dealing with a police officer. For example, in most instances you have the right to ask for identification and the officer's name. This provides you with some security in the case of harassment. You also cannot be interrogated without the option of having a lawyer present. If a police officer tries to intimidate you into thinking otherwise, you may be a victim of police harassment.

2
File a formal complaint with the local police department. Visit the website for the local police department and check the section regarding police complaints, or the frequently asked questions portion of the website. Follow the procedures for how to contact the department to file a complaint.

3
Document everything. Note any dates when you are contacted by the police and document what was said to you during that time. Keep records of written communication between the police and yourself. The more diligent you are about documentation, the stronger a case you will have.

4
Contact a lawyer. When dealing with the police it can be difficult to know what your rights are, because obviously those harassing you are not going to want to help you. Seek professional legal advice from someone qualified to inform you of what your options are regarding further harassment.

5
Press formal charges. If police are harassing you, and your legal counsel confirms to you that they are breaking the law, then you should have your lawyer press formal charges against the officers in question. Police have laws that they have to follow to, and people should stand up and hold them accountable if those laws are broken.

Tips & Warnings
Don't get angry with police who appear to be harassing you. If you are perceived as threatening the police in any way, they will be free to charge you and you will be found in the wrong. If you appear to be resisting or angry, they will also be within their rights to physically subdue you. It will be much harder to enforce any charges or complaints after such an occurrence.

Aidpage Open Letter: Hope

To the attention of:

Barack Obama, US President;
------------------------------------

Dear Mr. President,

This is my second letter to you, and although i know you have more important things to do than read my sob story, perhaps it will find its way to you anyway.

Before i start, please...no i beg you, defeat Romney!! Listening to him and his wife for four years is almost un-bearable to think about. So that being said i think you have done the best job you can, with what you've had to work with. A few missteps for sure(and what President hasn't?) but ovrall a job well done.

So on to my problem. One that i help create, and by the same token, had no control of.

I lost my job in Demeber of 07'. Like many others, and like many others, i wasn't prepared, and probably wasn't living within my means.

So, re-employment was slow,(months of un-employment) the eventual compensation upon re-entering the job market half to less than half, i found myself unable to honor my financial commitments. First to go was the cable, then the electric, my rental, and finally my 07' Fusion.

Herein lies the beef for me. I have been buying cars since i was 16. 12, to be exact. Paid off every damn one. Now this re-po has made me toxic to car financing.

Like i was saying i was woefully unprepared for my job loss due to Business closure. I had no rainy day fund, so i think it is important that you remind people to pay themselves first, and to live within there means. I would also like to see, Financial Institutions, to take a closer look at those of us who were credit worthy, before the economic meltdown, and who may be credit worthy again through re-entry into the job market as it is with me.

As of now they will finance me, but with a huge down payment, and very large interest. At the present time i do not have the necessary finances to get a deal done.

Thank you for letting me speak my mind, and if you can be of any assistance, it would be greatly appreciated.

 

Sincerely,

Donald C Russ

 in response to lovinggrammy...   LOL! Alrighty then... hey, I at least can say that I can appreciate the way you stand up for yourself and what you believe in...Dont necessarily agree with it.... LOL! But, I can respect the fact that you fight for what you believ in. And, you are right. Actually, my wife and I discussed this sight and the contents within. And, we both agree it is a complete waste of our time. So, you should feel comforts in knowing I will be leaving this site. I should dedicate more time to my family and put more time into our business. I wish you well!

 in response to Inspiration...   You are absolutely correct! KUDOS to you. But, I will tell you that I will be choosing to leave this sight. Not because anyone has run me off. I dont get "ran off"! But, only because I should devote this extra time i have on the computer to my wife. We are in the process of starting another business and I have to be productive for her/us. We are all empowered to make our situation better! We only need to focus our efforts and help ourselves. So, that is why I am going. Best of luck to you.

 in response to NEEDHELPME...   There should be county assistance in your area...But, maybe not. Here in Calif. they have CMS (County Medical Services) who help most anyone who cannot afford health insurance or medical help. Dont know where you live or if you have access/your county provides these types of services. I would suggest look into that type of program... or, call some of the local schools to see if they know of a no/low cost dentist. They sometimes have referrals because alot of schoolage children cannot afford the dental care they need. Please dont wait around for some Jesus-Freak to give you their religious advice and tell you to trust in the Lord. You will be waiting for a long time! The best REALISTIC answer is to seek out the answer(s). There is help out there! You just have to find it. Have a good day.
