A report on government extortion of the specially enabled.
This is going to be an anonymous report due to the nature of the situation and to protect the innocent however; I will give you the facts as they have been explained to me. The person not to be named will be called “Mike” and the local police dept. will also not be named to provide as much anonymity for Mike as possible, as I have sworn I would do.
When I heard the story about a specially enabled person who was being harassed by the local police department and extorted by local justice system I was outraged! I came here to do a documentary on a commune, and I find myself in the middle of a story that I cannot resist sharing with my Occupy family.
Let us not forget, Mike originally paid an attorney to take care of the case however, the attorney never bothered to do his job, or notify his client!
Mike is a respectable guy, he works a regular job at an industrial shop, doesn’t drink, smoke or do drugs. Some time ago Mike was pulled over at a “checkpoint” (you know like Nazi Germany) here in a rural town of Middle America. Mike speaks a little different, you know, with a little stammer or stutter, and he has a slouch to his posture, so the cops thought he was intoxicated. I don’t know about you but I (untrained in this, like a cop should be) can tell the difference between a person that’s intoxicated and one that has a speech difference due to evolution in humanity, or whatever you want to call it. As the story continues I can’t believe my ears, they arrested Mike after he “failed” the roadside test however Mike PASSED the breathe test! Why did they arrest him? Because he refused to let them draw his blood… like I said Mike is different than the rest of us (or them) therefore, he was automatically profiled, and when he didn’t comply, due to his WTF is going on because this is not normal to him. Mike was charged with DUI because he refused the blood test, his license was suspended*, and he had done NOTHING wrong! Mike was also fined for the DUI, but did not know his license was suspended and was pulled over (profiled) two more times within a year, by the same police department. So when the cops pull Mike over the 3rd time …OH shit, driving without a DL!! Mike now faces more court costs, fines, and fees… for what? The police screwed up and the judicial system has failed him.
So I ask you, what’s wrong with this picture, and how can it be fixed? In an upcoming report LIVE on OccupySFTV I’ll be asking you to help answer these questions? Stay tuned for details when! #FTP #OSF #OO #OWS #Anon #Peace #LOVE
*Refusing a blood test:
*In this state the driver automatically lose their driver’s license for 6 months, IF it’s the first offence (DUI).
