    Maybe this will spread the word to other law dogs who just can’t seem to bridle their ego.

    Unfortunately the earlier ruling was that MARTA had probable cause to stop the guy.

    “Maybe this will spread the word to other law dogs who just can’t seem to bridle their ego.” – I think it will help, but it won’t prevent further transgressions. These guys are going to push this until some very clear rulings are made.

    Why is it that the court believes the police, and the citizen is always a liar? Police probably didn’t even see the weapon. There is no reason to believe the police. They will cook up something to C.Y.O.A.
    You think one cop is not going to stick to the others story no matter that it is all a lie. Never do they separate the cops for their stories.
    Wouldn’t it be great to question the cops about an illegal detainment with the same s.o.p as they do with us?
