    Oh, Joy - Yet another unlawful takedown

    This time it's right around the corner, in Green Mountain Falls, CO.

    1. Approached concerning a minor infraction for which violators "may not be arrested."

    2. No required pre-approach letter was sent. One arrived two days after the arrest.

    3. The owner was arrested on his own private property shortly after he refused to speak to the deputy.

    4. The owner was told to "get off the phone."

    Why is this important for those of us who OC? Because our website is replete with comments about how the best response to a police officer's inquiry about anything is "I don't talk to cops."

    5. The suit claims Adams (the homeowner) told the deputy he had no permission to be on the property.

    Sound familiar?

    I sincerely hope the investigation reveals the full extent of what actually occurred, and if the deputy was out of line, then I sincerely hope he is disciplined to the fullest extent of the law, if not only for violating the man's rights, but for giving his law enforcement agency a HUGE black eye!

    Law enforcement officers and agencies: Please police your own. If you can't, you'll here about it here and elsewhere.

    Or in this case, simply following it.
