tint

Los Angeles, CA —  In the land of the free, if police see you without your seatbelt on, they will claim the right to extort money from you. In the land of the free, if police feel that your window tint is too dark, they will claim the right to extort money from you. If you resist this extortion, police will claim the right to kidnap or kill you. Unfortunately, in the land of the free, these instances happen so frequently that they are often caught on video, such as the case below.

In a video posted to Youtube this week, one of Los Angeles County’s finest is seen issuing a notice of extortion, also known as a ticket, to a woman for her window tint. When the deputy asks her to sign the ticket, the woman, who says she just got off the phone with her attorney, asks if the deputy used a meter.

“He wanted me to ask if there’s a meter you used for the tint,” says the woman.

“Nope. Nope,” says the cop who is going to issue a notice of extortion based solely on his vision.

“Well, I am not going to sign the ticket,” the woman tells him.

At this point, when the officer has his authority put in check, he clearly becomes agitated and tells the woman that he will kidnap her if she refuses to sign his piece of paper.

“If you do not sign it, I will have to take you to jail, physically. It is state law.” says the deputy.

Unfortunately for the woman, California law indeed states that “If you refuse to sign the ticket the officer is required by law to take you into custody and present you before a judge for arraignment on the charges.”

Because it is law, however, does not mean it is moral. This woman had harmed no one. She put no lives at risk. She was not trespassing, stealing, raping, murdering, or in violation of anyone’s property rights, nor did she have a complaint filed against her by a citizen. By any standard — other than that of the state — this woman was entirely innocent.

This deputy, however, was claiming to be legally justified in kidnapping her, and using deadly force if necessary because her windows appeared to let less than 70% of sunlight through.

Naturally, the woman breaks down and begins crying as she feels threatened by this armed man threatening her.

Does this seem just?

It is laws like this window tint racket that need to be resisted and brought into question. No one is protected by cops stealing money from you based on how dark your windows are. This law is designed to generate revenue and allow cops to fish for other victimless crimes like possessing drugs — nothing else.

Laws like this are what give cops a bad name. It doesn’t take a hero to pull someone over and demand money for the color of their window tint — it takes a villain. If police would stop enforcing laws for victimless crimes, like window tint, seatbelts, and the drug war, this divide among the police and the policed would be repaired.

Until then, however, innocent young women, who want to protect themselves from the sun’s rays, have to worry about being extorted and kidnapped by public servants.

Below are the videos exposing the ridiculous nature of revenue collection for victimless crimes. They were posted with the following descriptions:

This is a video of my friend who got pulled over for her tint. The officer being older and seeing that there is only her in the car tries to take advantage of her by trying to scare her into getting out of the car and threatening her that she is going to be arrested for not signing tint ticket which according to him is against the law.

As you can see here the pressure he is giving her is completely uncalled for, especially for a tint ticket. Not to mention she is married to a Navy man with a navy licence plate and an american flag on the back window saying “I support our troops” It is cops like these that need to get their badge revoked for trying to do this to innocent people because they think they are above the law. And people wonder why we fear cops and do not trust them because they give us no respect, so why give them respect in return. Our Public Servants are out of control!

Luckily, according to Ryan Halstrum, who uploaded the video, once the supervisor showed up, he apologized to the woman and let her go.

Also, in case you forgot, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department is the outfit the Free Thought Project made famous last year over a window tint violation.

    Many times the police are attempting to intimidate or provoke the person into panicking and trying to flee. This way they can get a free kill. The ‘Fight or Flight reaction’ (panic) is the first reaction of all living creatures and the police use it as an excuse to murder and provoke their victims.. These sociopaths are unfit to wear a uniform and should be dismissed.

    Not to mention she is married to a Navy man with a navy licence plate and an american flag on the back window saying “I support our troops”…

    Even though this is a bunch of bullshit that shouldn’t have happened, I’d rather they NOT show favoritism to people who put the right stickers on their car. Her being “married to a Navy man” should be worth nothing when she’s dealing with police.

    • billdeserthills

      That ‘navy man’ stuff is nothing, I have a friend who is a former fed, he has a little badge he receives which is affixed to his vehicle’s plates that advise he is a former leo– that way cops know not to give anyone in his cars a ticket–Now that is some favoritism

    Here is there phone number 626 285 7171

    • The Cat’s Vagina

      It’s their phone number. “There” is a place.

      • billdeserthills

        As a mod it will take you less effort to simply correct the mis- spelling–You do know that, right?

        • The Cat’s Vagina

          I have an agreement with Mr. Agorist not to do things like that. My moderatorial authority extends only a half-millimeter beyond deleting spam. It has been nice around here with all that shit, so I’m not about to ruin a good thing just because some asshole can’t spell.

          • billdeserthills

            I was a mod on a druggy forum, I used to just change anything I liked–Nobody ever bothered to tell me not to. Sometimes the dopers realized that I had made changes to their ‘valuable’ work & they were not pleased

  • captainsgirl

    Who are these cops parents, grandparents and wives? Why don’t they rebuke these pukes when they hear about them being abusive to the public? I’d sharply rebuke any family member for mistreating and bullying anyone like this. And I’d divorce a man over this type of treatment towards anyone. I wouldn’t want to be associated with a pig like him. My God, if this guy can treat her like that, he could treat me like that. Forget him. He’d be history.

  • angryplbr

    All she had to do was sign the damn ticket, the drama is on her. Really don’t feel sorry for her. And the tears….meh.

    • Abz B Zbas

      I would follow my attorney’s advice over a cop’s word anytime.

      • angryplbr

        It’s standard operating procedure to sign for the ticket. It doesn’t prove guilt, just that you received a citation. You people are clueless.

        • Abz B Zbas

          Despite your attempt at insulting “you people” I’m well aware that it doesn’t prove guilt. That doesn’t mean a person has to sign it. Unfortunately, the state of California will take you to jail for not signing. In many states, that is not the case.

        Iam a slave for following orders? your an idiot as well.

    • Bob Btme

      If only the Jews and gypsies and gay people had just followed orders better, things would have gone so much better for them in Germany

      • angryplbr

        Bob, your an idiot. Your response proves it. I’ve had plenty of tickets in my time and NEVER have I had an issue with the cop giving me the ticket. Grow the fuck up.

        • Bob Btme

          Your f-bombs and calling us idiots make your argument so convincing!

          with your lovable personality and midget intellect I’m sure you’ll be ticketed again soon. The police and insurance companies must love you.

  • Abz B Zbas

    The state of California should be sued for waste of taxpayer money for enacting a law that can send someone to jail over a traffic violation.

    I hope that pig gets a super rare form of fast-acting incurable brain cancer and suffers horrendously as the doctors lie to him about how all the expensive and painful treatments are going to save his worthless life.

    Thank God LACPD has caught all the murderers and rapists so they have the time to arrest people for window tint.

    She did good by staying CALM not cursing him out or screaming.

    They are drunk on power and don’t even know they are behaving in an immoral manner. You can’t reason with them and only enrage them if you try. They are right, all others are wrong. Avoid them, ignore them, walk away, drive away.

  • Ibcamn

    cops are not fucking heros,they are scum…bottom feeders period.these criminals are the new terrorists,homegrown terrorists against the people of this country,they kidnap you and ask for ransom,and if you can’t pay they will harbor you for as long as they want at an even higher ransom….the system is corrupt and these henchmen that work for the courts are just that,henchmen who will kill you,shoot you right in the back like the cowards they are…back in the day,if a man shot someone in the back,he was branded a coward,and if it wasn’t justified the man would get strung up on the spot for murder….these criminals,aka;cops,are the largest gang,armed gang in the US,the rape,they rob,they steal and assasinate people by the thousands,and i do mean thousands annually…..yet you people think they are heros,they are trash,a waste of air and skin
