Edward and Audrey Cramer tried to explain to the cops that they were only hibiscus plants, but Buffalo Township Police Sergeant Scott Hess refused to believe them, informing them he had “expertise” in identifying marijuana plants.
It all started on October 5 when insurance agent Jonathan Yeamans entered the Cramer property to investigate a claim that a neighbor’s tree fell on their property in September.
While investigating the claim, Yeamans spotted the hibiscus plants and surreptitiously photographed them, sending the photos to police, claiming the Cramers were involved in an illegal marijuana growing operation.
Two days later, a dozen cops arrived at the home, banging on the door, pointing their assault rifles at Audrey Cramer who answered the door wearing only underwear, a bra and a t-shirt.
They were released four hours later with no charges after the cops determined the plants were not marijuana. Police, nevertheless, confiscated the hibiscus plants, describing them as “tall, green, leafy, suspected marijuana plants.”
I don’t believe for a moment that these cops mistook the plants for pot. I believe they used it as an excuse to snoop around, and as a training exercise… and who knows, they might get lucky finding… something.
Instead, they say they were attempting to subdue Jones due to his amplified physical strength.
“I think that, I’m not an expert on human strength, but I think if someone has been shot and handcuffed and on the ground, and it still takes four large men to hold him down, that might indicate there are other factors in place,” Parrish told CBSlocal after the shooting.
“The issue was keeping him from moving around, from either running off or fighting, that’s why the officers were holding him down.”
“Within 10 seconds of their arrival, he had been shot it the stomach.”
The unarmed man shot by Texas cops for trying to break into his own car resisted an anal cavity search after he was shot, according to his attorneys. So Mesquite police officer Derick L. Wiley shot him again.
And you know damn well, all this roadside cop anal activity is nothing more than to humiliate you.
Makes you want to shoot a cop in the stomach… and the back, then tell him/her to stay still (just saying). Kind of like cops tasering/stun driving a person, then tasering/stun driving them again, because they flinched.
As a retired ASE Certified Automotive Technician, I couldn’t count how many times I’ve dealt with car alarms malfunctioning. My wife’s own car alarm went off in a store parking lot one day. After trying the usual methods, I ended up, in the parking lot, disabling the battery, and pulling the damn thing out, and splicing the ignition wire back together.
Wait! You mean there’s more???
