Going Overboard

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 30, 2013 in News & Opinion |

Yet another story of how things are getting completely out of control back home, and one which raises many, many questions about the effectiveness of law enforcement and whether what they do, in some cases, is wildly out of proportion to what is necessary.

In this case a young woman was challenged by plain-clothed officers as she came out of a supermarket in the belief that she had bought alcohol. Clearly this is such a massive breach of law that seven officers are needed to restrain or apprehend one single woman, and they need to draw their guns and attempt to smash a car’s windows too.

Since when is the purchase of beer – or even the suspected purchase – such a massive breach of the law that something like this could ever happen? And why, after all is said and done, has Charlottesville Commonwealth Attorney Dave Chapman not also stated that each and everyone of those officers hasn’t been assigned to some form of training course or even an Anger Management seminar?

    Well put! Too much testosterone. It’s a good thing she had her friends with her to collaborate her version of the story. Why hasn’t a local TV station jumped on board to help her out? She should at least get a decent court ordered settlement out of this, more than an apology. I am no way a “sue (lawsuit) happy” person, but this borders ridiculous.
