The story of my illegal arrest is getting more ridiculous, as more facts come to light.
Last week, I submitted a Public Disclosure Request, and just received a copy of the radio log of the call that eventually led to my arrest and imprisonment. It reads:
NEAR RR TRAX SOME TEENAGERS GETTING READY TO GRAFITTI THE BRIDGE
I literally laughed out loud. The Tribal Officer, traveling at 45 mph down a dark country road, was able to determine that the “3 MALES ON BIKES” he saw for a split second, were “GETTING READY TO GRAFITTI THE BRIDGE”.
The officer’s unique ability to predict future crime is astonishing, especially considering that one of the “teenage males” he saw was a 33-years old, 230-pound, bearded yours truly, and another was my petite, pony-tailed, 17-year old niece.
The Sheriff’s Deputies’ reports make it clear that they were disappointed when they didn’t find any spray paint in our backpacks, or fresh graffiti on the bridge. May I suggest that you should make sure that an actual crime was committed, before you pull people over?
Next time you hear the law enforcement officials complain about the “lack of resources”, show them this story, and ask why they waste taxpayer’s money on harassing and arresting innocent citizens.
