    Perfect example of over-Policing and the Police not being held accountable for being a bit dim in the approach of 'Public Safety'.

    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    Don't laugh some friends of mine was once arrested for drinking beer in the park. he was arrested by undercover narcotics officers who could not find anyone dealing drugs to bust, so they got frustrated and took it out on my buddy having a beer in a paper bag with his lunch. The judge was not amused about hearing this case in a criminal court, he made it clear that the NARCS where idiots. Case Dismissed.

    I have never sued anyone in my life, but in this case, I'd lawyer up.

    I really think that the law needs to get changed so that fleeing from the police or resisting arrest and those related charges can only be filed if they file the charge that was the reason for the stop. Thus if there was no valid reason for the stop, you can't be charge after. Now I would still allow for assault on an officer because there is no reason for people to get carried away.

    "Chapman stood by the agents' decision to file charges, citing faith in a process that yielded an appropriate resolution."

    Nothing like digging in your heels when the only possible outcome is looking ridiculous .
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Makes me wonder who is training and supervising these "agents"?

    Well, at least she got this: "Chapman said he'd never encountered a situation like this in his 34 years of experience.

    "It wouldn't be the right thing to do to prosecute this," he said, noting that no one was hurt during the exchange, which took place around 10:15 p.m." according to the text in post 1.

    Wrong time, wrong place, bad LEO behavior, but at least the DA isn't Nifong.

    Beside the night in jail, this happened on April 11th, and 'prosecutors' didn't drop the charges until 80 days later. "Chapman stood by the agents decision to charge..." Yet he opines "It wouldn't be the right thing to do to prosecute this,"? Is this legalese for cluster-****? (my stars...)

    Someone needs to step in here and revise these procedures at the least.

    Plainclothes does not equal an 'officer'. As far as I know you can't arrest unless you have a uniformed officer, nor are you required to stop for an unmarked car, but IANAL.

    Though well-meaning, you should stipulate that this wasn't BEER it was a blue carton of LaCroix sparkling bottled water. (I agree that them thinking it was beer isn't justification for their behavior either. Perhaps they missed the classes on 'beer identification'?)
