"Want to see how fast the charges reappear?  File a civil rights lawsuit in federal court. Do it for the children "


Been there, done that....BTW, they re-appear real fast but it gives the person filing the lawsuit a reason to amend the initial complaint....

 Some of the comments on this issue is down right scary. It just validates the reality that the dumbing down of America has been a total success. When you speak of the justice system today you may want to spell it right, "justus"

Ditto. When is the cop going to jail for violating her rights?  Ignorance is no excuse in the eyes of the law.

Unfortunately, a dismissal is not like a judgment against. In other words, the police have not been reprimanded at all for their activities. As said below, the charges might re-appear in some form should Ms. Good decide to pursue some form of harassment charges against police.

What we need is some form of police "policy" that does not restrict police in the operation of their "duties" yet treats them as criminals when they blatantly step outside their "stated" authority.

Law enforcement that acts as law enforcement should act is a valuable asset. It allows people to get on with their business and lives without the hassle of needing to always be on the defensive against some unprovoked attack from a passerby. But when it is the police who commit the unprovoked attacks, the whole idea of police is counterproductive. What good are they?
