The police are ordered TWICE to return confiscated property

I don't know if they have any more stall tactics, but we are expecting them to continue to try to not return this property. They broke a lot of it during the "confiscation" so they really don't want to give it back.

Is there a penalty in KY for

Is there a penalty in KY for not complying with court orders? Might be worth looking into that & next time you get in court ask the judge to impose the penalty to the police for not complying with the previous two court orders.

Complying with court orders is the law.... if a police officer is refusing to obey the law then I suppose it's possible they will lose qualified immunity for doing so. That would then mean, if I understand all this stuff correctly, that you might then be able to sue the officer personally since they are not properly following the law in the execution of their job as police.

A lot of drugs are probably sold to the drug cartels they protect. Cant have the little guy threaten their monopoly.

Oh, they took tons of stuff. Two truckloads. Smashed up a lot of glass--that is why they are stalling. Took herbal supplements, scales, safe cans. Rolling papers and cigars. Probably close to $100k in merchandise this time. Glad I got a good judge who doesn't view me as a criminal.

If twice the police are ordered to return property

What was the original number of police ordered to return property?

I could be mistaken

but I think the OP is the person in the article. Not everyone got the greatest education, not everyone has the same language skills. People here generally take a ribbing about mistakes in stride, but a word of support for a fellow liberty lover being jacked around by "law enforcement" is the appropriate sugar to make your grammar medicine go down.

You are right

This is my shop we are talking about, and that Ron Paul sign has been up since 2008. I am educated and have grammar skills, just did this in a hurry and didn't re-read it first.

This is the second time they raided my shop, and it has cost me about $200k. I tend to be kinda cash-poor as my money is tied up in assets, so these things really hurt. Winning my property back is a huge victory.

I still face charges but we are challenging the constitutionality of the law. This isn't over by far, and I might end up having to go the state Supreme Court with it.

I am glad to have the opportunity to expose the police for what they are to the public around here. Supportive comments under this article are much appreciated, and definitely noticed by the PTB.

Your right fishy

I was ribbing. I didnt't see the picture of the storefront in the linked article. But now that I have I see the Ron Paul sign in the window is much bigger than the Gary Johnson sign. Sucks they were raided over a synthetic plant charge. I hope they win their case in court and retrieve all of their property stolen by the code enforcers.

Sorry about the ribbing, hope everything works out in your favor.

Sometime in the 70's a small plane full of pot crashed in N KY. The cops announced they would burn it in place, and when and where. About 1/2 the campus of UC took a field trip that day... lol!
