Woman detained for 12 hours with her kids left in the car, can't sue


Eyrania Smith was detained on an outstanding warrant at a Baltimore County police station after she was stopped for a speeding violation. They took her to the precinct and cuffed her to a pole by her wrist and ankle while they left her two kids in the car on the side of the road. Turns out that warrant was bogus in the first place.

However, the charge is likely to be dismissed and/or replaced with another charge, possibly disorderly conduct or obstructing government administration. Whitman was "impaired by alcohol" when he was arrested and, when the case was later reviewed, wiretapping didn't seem to be "a viable charge."

Police State in Canada


"With the G2O meeting in Toronto this weekend , 26-27 June, the police have tightened security to what can only be described as a full on police state.
