I got to arrest 3 Republican freeper types today!
Edited on Tue Mar-16-04 04:54 PM by Cuban_Liberal
One of the polling places in our county had these 3 real pro-life, 'guns, God and Bush' types 'informing' voters about the 'evil Democrats' outside the polling place. They violated the State's '100 feet' rule by being too close, and the judges of election asked them to move. They refused, and the judges called the Sheriff's Department for help in enforcing the law. I was dispatched and arrived about 10 minutes later.

I conferred with the judges who are, by the way, officers of the circuit court and (legally) my bosses, and then I went and spoke to the Freepers. I asked them politely to move back to where they were told, and they refused, saying that they were on 'private property', and that neither I nor the judges could tell them to move. I made my request into an order, which they also ignored. I then placed all 3 under arrest for disorderly conduct and violation of the Election Code and took them to the county jail, where they remained until about an hour ago. Seems the presiding judge (a Democrat) couldn't be located and, when located, said he'd set bond 'as soon as I get there', which was almost 6 hours later.

It felt GOOD, folks! :evilgrin:

12. I like these Republican "poll watchers"
Heaven help the GOP "poll watcher" who gets in my way of voting on election day. If some "poll watcher" interferes with my right to vote he better have a good dental plan! Pacifist? Not this liberal!

46. Hey, I'm a pacifist...but not to the extent...
...that someone trying to mess with my right to vote would escape unscathed. A friend of mine is utterly convinced that the best way to deal with irrational Freeper-types is to "hit 'em and walk away," but (being a pacifist and all) I don't believe that applies to conflicts consisting of more than a few people. ('Tis a *scale* thing!)

There was total agreement among the judges--both Democrat and Republican.

I'd love to see the looks on their faces when CL put them in cuffs.

Did you have to get another officer to assist?

Typical wingnuts...they love the fact that *we're* herded into First Amendment zones like Old Paint but *they* insist that their boundries not be disturbed.

Arresting a freeper...you're the envy of everyone here today :)

Hell, if you can arrest three freepers a day, I'll follow you around with a video camera. THAT'S a movie I'd pay to watch! Pass the popcorn! Even better if some resist arrest and get whacked with the baton (without you being hurt, a'course).

I would think you could have trouble doing your job in a impartial manner. Might think about looking for a differnt line of work.

They are criminals, nothing more and nothing less. It should not matter what party they belong to, color of skin, straight or gay. You understand what I'm getting at? And this comes from 30 years LE experience.

But weren't there times when it felt especially good to make an arrest? You see what I'm getting at? I'm not going to make it my life's work to bust Freepers, but if the legitimate opportunity arises, heck yes, I'm not gonna pretend it doesn't feel good. :)
