Evanston police officers on leave after arresting man collecting signatures
“Two Evanston police officers are on leave and the department has launched an internal investigation after a 24-year-old African-American man was arrested Sunday while collecting signatures to run for local public office, according to Evanston Police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan.
Devon Reid, 24, was in the 1700 block of Sherman Avenue in downtown Evanston when he was stopped just after 5:30 p.m., Dugan said.
Dugan said one of the officers, a white woman, saw Reid and another man with clipboards and wondered what they were doing. He said she stopped them and asked for their names and birth dates. The other man was a white 23-year-old, according to a Monday release by the city.
The men gave their names but Reid, who said he hopes to run for Evanston city clerk, refused to give his birth date, Dugan said.
“She asked several times. He refused several times,” Dugan said. Finally, the officer told Reid she would arrest him if he did not give his birth date. He still refused and she put him under arrest after calling for assistance from another officer, an African-American man.
The female patrol officer and her immediate supervisor, a white male sergeant, are the officers who were put on leave, Dugan said. The second responding patrol officer was not put on leave, he said. Dugan said the sergeant was put on leave because he was involved after Reid was brought back to the station.”
They just can’t help themselves
It is not a job
It is who they are
And this happens every day in a supposed free society
Day in and day out this plays out in our country
Yet people refuse to see that the “Heroes” that are worshiped in the media
Are actually the biggest threat to liberty that you or I will ever face
Any time you venture into public
Or nature for that fact
Your liberty is in danger
What happened to these people might happen to you
Sound far fetched?
Well, it is not
It is the primary reason that this blog exists
A simple public outing turned into a false arrest, a report full of lies
And a Hernando county Sheriff’s deputy trying to shake two women down for money on the side of the road
Read through the pages that are compiled here and you will find that it is far from that
If you fear tyranny, loss of a free society and the end of America as the nation we know
Than you need to look no further than your local “Law enforcers”
Even when they are not off of the straight and narrow and perpetrating crimes against those that hey are sworn to serve
They are still there to enforce laws that are totally contradictory to freedom and to basic human rights
Look around America
Are you free?
If not, look directly at who are responsible for enforcing the laws that take your freedom
Then look at the type of person it takes to do that
