Cops Strip Search Mom, "Forcibly" Pull Tampon Out of Her for Maybe Rolling Through Stop Sign

Getting pulled over for rolling through a stop sign is whack. But getting pulled over, having a gun pointed in your face, and then being strip searched on the side of the road in front of your two children for rolling through a stop sign is, well, really whack and probably an excessive use of force.

At least. that's what a new lawsuit in the Sunshine State is claiming.

Last July, Leila Tarantino claims that she was pulled over by an officer with the Citrus County Sheriff's Department. In the suit, Tarantino says she came to a full stop and should have never been pulled over in the first place.

A passing cop pulled a u-turn, flashed the lights, and rolled up behind her. Tarantino claims that the cop immediately drew his weapon, pulled her from the car, and refused to explain why he pulled her over. Tarantino's two young children watched all of this unfold from inside her car.

What happened

to those cameras mounted on police vehicles to record possible abuse of power?

They don't work...

when you put the subject on the BACK of the police cruiser.

'Cause there's a monster on the loose


I hope she gets a fair trial and verdict.

The war on liberty is a privacy issue as proven by this horrible event.

She got a lawyer to defend her? Amazing!

My "He's a Constitutionalists" friends, Bear and Marcela, have had 3 attorneys meet with them, tell them everybody's going to get rich after they are done suing those cops, then three days later call back and say they can't take the case.
Understand there was no identifying themselves as cops - they just showed up, dragged Marcela out, ordered Bear out and put a gun to his head and cuffed him - REFUSING to even say why they were there. They knocked Bear around a bit, and began to search his house. No warrant, no probable cause. As they searched, one of the men holding Bear at gunpoint finally told him why they were there - "Because you're a wife beater, fuckhead." Never mind that THEY had arrived to find an unharmed woman and proceeded to injure her.... SO, Bear asked them to go home, they could see that Marcela was fine. The guy told him they were not going anywhere until they cleared the house. In "clearing" the house (without checking a single closet or corner" they declared they had their "probably cause." (They found the tomato plants they were starting for their winter garden. Seriously.) So, still in cuffs and with gun to head, Bear said something like "I don't care if you look in my house, all you will find are tomatoes." The last attorney used that comment as his reason he could not represent them - Bear "consented." Like that? How about Marcela, could he represent HER? Nope.

I am disgusted by police violence. I saw a story the other day where a cop went to shoot someone's dog and shoot another cop instead. I'm just sharing that story, I cannot comment because my thoughts on this are not really wholesome.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

We all have to accept the fact...

...the state is a killig and looting machine. There are allegegd benefits we suppossedly recive, it is just for show and to keep us from coming to terms with this fact.

The expreince Bear went through sounds like, because it is, a soviet union situation. Sad story. One we all should exxpect at some point.

The looting is going to get real serious and we will look back on 2012 as the "goood times" before the fall. The economyy s being strangled by the state's consumption of all resources. As it gets worse the only solutions that will discussed will be more state control and increased thefft of the people's labor.

hope Bear isnt completley wiped out by these thugs.
