As, “We the People”, try to figure out how to contend with the presence of Russian and Chinese soldiers on our soil as well as how we are going to deal with the NDAA and Executive Order 13603 when martial law is upon us, we do not need to be dealing with a local out of control police force. Yet, increasingly your local police poses the greatest man-made threat to your freedom and longevity.

Although there are still some quality people filling the ranks of our local law enforcement forces, increasingly, we are contending with officers who view you and me as the enemy. As a result, the Constitution, fair play and common sense take a holiday when you deal with the police.

The following examples are emblematic of what we in the public are being forced to contend with as we venture out of our homes.

Arrested for Criticizing Cops for Speeding

POLICE BRUTALITY 9Once upon a time in this country, there used to be a First Amendment. However, if you live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and you exercise your First Amendment rights, you could spend the night in jail.

A Pittsburgh social studies teacher, Dennis Henderson, from Manchester Academic Charter School, was arrested for criticizing police officers who violated the posted speed limit.

The American Civil Liberties subsequently filed a lawsuit on behalf of the teacher, who actually spent twelve hours behind bars, for criticizing police for committing a crime.

Henderson and New Pittsburgh Courier photographer Rossano Stewart were talking on the side of the road when officer, Jonathan Gromek, recklessly sped past the two in his squad car and was so close to the men that Henderson was forced to jump back and yelled, “Wow!” Officer Gromek promptly made a U-turn and told Henderson “You got a problem with the way I’m driving?’

Henderson responded by telling Officer Gromek that he wanted to file a complaint and he wanted his badge number. Gromek responded by stating, “I tell you what, both of you, you got ID? And now, you are both under arrest”.

Both Henderson and Stewart were handcuffed, more police rushed to the aid of the beleaguered speeding cops. Subsequently, Stewart was released, but Henderson was booked at Allegheny County Jail where he was forced to spend the night on charges of obstruction of highways, disorderly conduct by means of unreasonable noise (saying “wow”), and resisting arrest.

The ACLU is suing on Henderson’s behalf and accuses Gromek of violating Henderson’s First Amendment to express himself as well as suing based Henderson’s Fourth Amendment Right not to be falsely arrested and imprisoned, and finally his Fourteenth Amendment right to equal protection under the law.
