  •  Agree but do we have all the facts? (0+ / 0-)

    I usually and heartily agree 100% with your diaries and comments but I endorse cmoreNC's comment on this one.  

    But when it comes to knowing the facts, this story itself is a 2nd hand or perhaps even 3rd hand story itself.  

    I believe you've seen far more than a fair share of police and authoritarian over-reaction and suppression of constitutional rights, and cmoreNC is agreeing that that's probably the case here.

    I think cmoreNC's reserved caution is well-stated and prudent advice.  The police behavior is inexcusable but its aberration is peculiar for mere jaywalking.  The diary implies she was poor and speaks English poorly but was it a casual factor? Neither are facts that we know.

    Hopefully, marvinborg's efforts will bring light and justice to this matter.
