DHS at Internal Checkpoint breaks drivers' window, seizes all his stuff and doesn't charge him with anything

By Martin Hill | LibertyFight.com | July 10, 2013



An incredibly odd video is making the rounds on youtube which reveals a violent act by CA Homeland Security Agents, who angrily bashed in a driver's car window and put him in cuffs after he invoked his 5th Amendment right. The video description states the incident took place in Pine Valley, California on May 31, 2013. In response to viewers questions, videographer Robert Trudell states he was cuffed for six hours, had no access to a toilet for nine hours, and had all of his property confiscated. They finally let him go with only his ID and credit cards, and he had to wait 21 days to get his video and camera equipment back.

All this and not even charged with any crime.

Trudell has 4,202 videos on his channel, many of them of internal border checkpoints, including the 20+ minute U.S. Border Patrol Checkpoint. Dateland, AZ Gas & Cameras, No Response to "Are you a US Citizen?"(41,804 views, posted Feb, 15 2013); the one minute condensed version What Country are you a Citizen of? US Border Patrol, No Consent Search, Right to Remain Silent and the 12 minute Border Patrol Checkpoint, Right to Remain Silent, US Route 95 Highway, Yuma, Arizona.

His website, titled "The USA Mexican Border Dance", features many of his videos and photographs. Trudell's car is elaborately riggged with mounted cameras and one photo taken from inside his car captured the dramatic shot of the border patrol busting out his window while he sits in the drivers seat. At first glance it isn't entirely clear what transpired in the window-breaking incident, but Trudell's replies to viewers questions tell more of the story. Trudell responds to one commenter by explaining "I didn't Consent to a Search and Remained Silent (well except for the "Hmm?" to understand his Order.)"

It will get to the point

It will get to the point people will just start killing government employees doing this stuff, and people will cheer those revenge killings. They do know this is the logical progression.

Liberty = Responsibility

Sue? Get Judge Nap!

They are indefinitely detaining his property because said belongings could be enemy combatants. You know how inanimate object kill people every day(guns,knives,bongs etc).

Yes, Sue The Creeps!

If they arrest you, (we have it on video him being handcuffed),
they need to read you the Miranda warning.

If no charges were broght, then false arrest.

Either way, they broke the law.

And of course there really was no probable cause for
any of their acts, so they are violating the Constitution
as well.

There you go "platoonleader"

another example of your "heroes" at work.

Check Points

I no longer drive the 8 to San Diego from Phoenix. The PEOPLE of the great states of Arizona and California believe I'm a patient. The federal government thinks I'm a criminal. I drive three hours out of my way not to have my rights violated. This is disgusting.

People wonder how Middle Eastern folks get so brutal

Many are very advanced, ancient societies that have been subject to one tyrant after another.
They just explode in blind, brutal retaliation.
I hope America doesn't go "Middle East" on the foot soldiers.


Amen. Although I do think perhaps

America may need to go "hashashin" on those foot soldiers' leaders.

What would the Founders do?

I am so sick of this stuff

I can't watch it. I am suffering from outrage-overload.

Sue them quick before the 21 days is up.

If he does sue and win, where does the settlement money come from?

Is the violator responsible, sue him and take everything he owns

Sue the government, if the victim gets the money that less evil that the government can get done.
