  • More police abuse and cover-up! What is unreasonable search and seizure?

    Sad….Walk into the market with a cane and you get mace’d by the cops. Next it will be a person walking home with wine and the police will claim that the person was armed with a glass bottle! Facts are this crippled homeless guy had a walking stick and was not wanted in little Italy.
