cops enter home , arrest woman for not mowing her lawn
Quote:Police came barging into a woman's home because they wanted to arrest the owner for the length of her lawn. A tenant, Robyn Ruckman, recorded the encounter. As she answered the door, police treated her rudely and started making demands. She told them her name but that wasn't good enough. They wanted her to produce ID.

After asking them to stay outside, police and health inspectors barged into her home.

"You know, I don't even see a nametag," Ruckman told the officer.

"I don't give a sh*t what you see. Go get your ID. You see that?! It says POLICE."

Police were performing a 12-hour roundup of the town's offenders, including the horrendous crimes of having uncut grass. The Lawn Nazis took care of business that day, and the streets were safe once again. Robyn Ruckman got off easy that day, as she was not the landlord. It was the owner of the long grass that was to be put behind bars.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
Another piece of shit pig that needs to be taught a lesson and thrown in jail for violating rights. If there was two if them what they did was a felony.
Why would anyone expect her to mow the lawn anyway? Unless there is grass in her kitchen.
M and more we see stories like this. One of these days, one of these people is going to take a stand, and do something drastic.

And if that ever happens, I am pretty sure I know who I would be cheering for.
This will be the best security for maintaining our liberties. A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins. -Ben Franklin
It involved police from E. Pittsburgh, Turtle Creek, and housing authority. The district justice cleared 105 warrants that day for a 12 hour initiative. Seriously? Dodgy

It almost looks like they're hoping somebody will do something drastic in response. Still looking for that tipping point . . .
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.
The entry and request for ID was legit since the police had a warrant. However, I have to agree that the situation should've been handled a LOT differently. It's probably a simple summary offense and not something to make a big fuss over.

I agree. Just hand her a piece of paper and move on. No need for Barney and Co. to get all jacked up about it. Let her take it to the landlord and get it sorted out.

Thankfully, no dogs were murdered in the course of this dragnet. I wonder if they had swat on standby in case one started barking.

tolerance for failure meter... LOW
Most people think of security doors as a means to protect against criminals. More and more I think of them as a means to protect against police.
The law? The law is a human institution...
And sadly most still trust government.
