  • Criminalizing legal behavior

    With the support of state law enforcement, a Massachusetts Democratic state representative has filed a drug war bill that would send violators to prison for a mandatory minimum two years (five years for a second offense) and allow police to seize their vehicles all without the presence of any actual drugs.

    Sponsored by Rep. Stephan Hay (D-Fitchburg), the measure, House Bill 1266, makes it a crime to have a hidden compartment in ones vehicle or to try to add one
    The proposed measure redefines reality to make a drug crime out of literally nothing.

    That's some outstanding bullshit right there. They should do the same in homes. Any hidden safes or whatever will get you jail time. Makes perfect sense.

          That doesn't seem overly complicated for the prosecutor.
          The undated video shows a plainclothes officer walking away when the man filming the incident questions him.

            How in the hell did Mike Rogers get a show on CNN? Holy fuck. Just learned this.
            Mind boggling to me how that's possible.

                Thank God for the internet. This doesn't go viral, swept under the rug, guaranteed.

                    My attitude towards the cops and investigations has morphed probably as much from what I've seen here as anything. I heard an amazing recording from a lawyer who gave examples of people admitting the most basic facts, like simply stating you knew somebody, or was in the same city as a crime, used to build a case against them. So I've gone from "If you've done nothing wrong, you have nothing to worry about," to, "I"m sorry officer. My lawyer told me he'd kill me if I answered any questions without talking to him first."

                      Exactly, you have nothing to gain and everything to lose speaking with law enforcement. If I see one I head the other direction, no matter what.

                          By the time they read you that it's already too late. The time to say nothing is before the arrest. "Do you know why I pulled you over"? NO "So where are you heading"? NORTH "Where are you coming from"? SOUTH
