Colorado cops need a lesson in the 4th Amendment

A guy robs a bank. In amongst the stolen money is a bug. Cops follow the bug to an intersection and find a busy street corner. They then arrest everyone in the intersection, wee children included, with assault rifles pointed in faces. The cops illegally detain and search everyone. They refuse medical help to people that need it. The suspect's description is a young white guy, 5'6" but they still arrest everyone. The robber is caught after 30 minutes, but due to a communications failure and incompetence, the cops keep everyone handcuffed for more than hours. City of Aurora, Police Sued for ‘More-Than-Two-Hour Mass Roundup’ of Innocent People in Search for Bank Robber | The Dissenter
What happened next, attorneys argue, was a clear violation of Fourth Amendment rights. Nineteen vehicles at this intersection were stopped and barricaded by police. Brandishing “ballistic shields and pointed assault rifles directly at innocent citizens, including children under ten years old,” officers allegedly had all occupants in vehicles at the intersection “hold their arms up and outside of their vehicle windows.” One officer, Christen Lertch, allegedly ordered the “officers to identify anyone in the stopped vehicles who appeared ‘overly nervous or anxious’ or refused to raise their hands and arms.” Also, “The officers would not permit anyone to shut off their vehicle’s ignition, put their vehicle in park, or lift their parking brakes.” The complaint further claims that after thirty minutes occupants, who had been holding their arms out their windows, were ordered to exit the vehicles. Police “pat down most of the individuals for weapons and handcuffed them.” Each person was “commanded” to “sit on the curb” while their vehicles were searched “without consent.” All of this occurred even though Paetsch had already been arrested and despite the fact that a “money band” was found in the vehicle Paetsch had been driving. Additionally, despite the fact that Paetsch, a “nervous individual” who was “perspiring” when pulled out of his car, had now been detained by police thirty minutes into the roundup, officers continued to prevent everyone from leaving the intersection for the next couple of hours.

D.C. cop caught running underage prostitution ring out of his apartment

And just days ago another D.C. cop was busted for using his authority to bully fifteen-year-old girls into stripping naked for photos. The cop was later found dead under mysterious circumstances. D.C. Cop Caught Running Child Prostitution Ring Out of His Apartment, Missing Girl Found Inside | The Free Thought Project
Linwood Barnhill Jr., a veteran of the D.C. Police Department, is the latest scum to hit the Badge Abuse charts. An early morning search warrant issued for his Southeast D.C. apartment found a 15 year old girl who had previously been reported missing by her parents. According to documents, the girl who was discovered was part of a prostitution ring being run by the cop. During the early morning search of the officer’s home, MPD officers discovered the girl in a back bedroom. She told officers that she had met the suspect about two weeks ago, and after several meetings, the suspect told her that he had made a “date” for her with an older man. That “date” was of to be a sexual nature, documents say. The teenage girl, whom the suspect told the victim that her prostitution name was to be “Juicy” – was told she’d be paid $80 for performing sexual acts on the man and that she was supposed to give $20 of that to the suspect. She also told officers that she had met six other girls inside the Southeast D.C. apartment who told her that they were also being prostituted, including with ads posted on backpage.com. The suspect also allegedly took naked photos of the girls, purportedly for use in advertisements for sex. . . .
