Police report, unlawful detainment, Prescott Valley AZSubmitted by Smudge Pot on Thu, 01/31/2013 - 22:47
NOTED AND RECORDED HERE;
RHONDA MCMULLEN, TAXI DRIVER ILLEGALLY DETAINED FOR 7 HOURS BY PRESCOTT VALLEY ARIZONA POLICE.
Brief: at approximately 11:30 AM MST Rhonda McMullen, taxi driver, picked up a fare and was accosted by Prescott Valley Police for having a person in her cab that police wanted. Her car with her inside it was attacked, flash-banged, officers approached her car and broke out several windows with blunt instruments and Rhonda (wife of my buddy Mark) was shackled and forceably detained for 7 hours. She repeatedly asserted her rights, asked if she was under arrest and asked if she was free to leave but shackled to a chair bolted to the floor there was little utility to this question. She was given no food. She had to beg for water. She was depried of her jacket and was cold and uncomfortable and she was submitted to an interrogation despite requesting representation.
And this is my first step to document this occurance. PRESCOTT VALLEY POLICE DEPARTMENT, THIS IS NOTICE SERVED. ARIZONA ACTIVISTS TAKE NOTE.
For the record, Prescott Valley police officers began to frisk her and she said "you go one inch further and I'm shouting rape.
For the record, Rhonda McMullan does not drink, use drugs or approve of those who do. She is a devout wife and doting grandmother. Present are her grand-children who shall be un-named for these purposes.
I state this for the record. Prescott Valley AZ PD doesn't have the worst reputation but they certainly don't have the best, having members in active motorcycle clubs and who are on record for flashing badges and beating people up in bars with impunity. Their M/C is called Iron Knights. And in this reporters personal opinion, they act like any other M/C, the brutalize and intimidate people in our bars, gas stations and cunduct themselves in a manner undignified.
AND THIS NOTICE SERVED: PRESCOTT VALLEY PD: YOU OPERATE UNDER COLOUR OF LAW NO LONGER. WE SHALL HAVE THE TRUTH FROM YOU.
BAD SHADOW PRESCOTT VALLEY PD. WE ARE WATCHING YOU. NOTICE SERVED.
