U.S. Dept. of Justice admonishes Los Angeles Sheriff for numerous Constitutional Violations

The U.S. Department of Justice has released a strongly-worded condemnation of the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department, outlining a laundry list of Constitutional violations and abuses against the citizenry. The most interesting documents are a 46-page letter from the U.S. Attorney General and the agreement they signed with police. LibertyFight.com has reviewed these documents and following are the most relevant and revealing aspects of these matters as it pertains to all Americans and their rights when dealing with police. The numerous admonitions to police for unconstitutional abusive conduct is a precise example of how government should work. The parts we find interesting are the sections on illegal police searches, illegal detainment and searches of drivers and passengers at traffic stops without warrants or probable cause, illegal automobile searches, illegal use of force, and how police routinely fail to investigate citizen complaints. One way they do this is simply take verbal complaints which aren't even considered official complaints thus preventing the possibility of officer discipline. This is why it's imperative for people to file official written complaints when they encounter police misconduct. [article continues here.)

Nice to know, but what is the punishment and who does the follow-up? Without concrete and costly punishment for violations of citizens constitutional rights, there is little incentive for change. Police are above the law, while the people are crushed repeatedly under the boot heels.

I suppose that the feds, who themselves are egregious violators of rights worldwide, are going to keep an eye on the sheriff cookie-jar. :-)
