Police Force Way Into Woman's House, Reason: Grass Uncut


This is getting ridiculous!
In Turtle Creek, Pennsylvania, police went on a 12-hour “warrant roundup” – trying to arrest as many people with outstanding warrants as possible. One of those arrest warrants was against a landlord for failing to maintain his property. (Yes, cities can and will go after people for uncut grass or other failures to maintain.)

The landlord wasn’t home, but the tenant, Robyn Ruckman, was.  She videotaped the police presenting themselves at her door without offering identification, swearing at her and, in response to her mild protest that they hadn’t presented decent identification, forcibly entering her house without showing a warrant to do so.

The Turtle Creek Police Chief defended the cops’ behavior by saying that it’s department policy that, once a door has been opened, the police cannot allow the door to close on them for fear that the next time it opens, they’ll find themselves staring down the wrong end of a gun.

One day, they're going to open the wrong door.

    Forcing their way in because the grass is not cut, they deserve to be on the wrong end of a functioning weapon against tyranny and totalitarianism.

    1. Absolutely. That kind of behavior over GRASS CUTTING is tyranny. Actually, it's terrorism. These cops are bullies, and terrorists, and need to get their ass kicked. They think we are their subjects. Police all over this country are out of control. It is time for the citizens to put n end to this before it gets even more out of hand.

    1. No it doesn't and if the piggies keep this up they're going to get busted. I know a great deal of men from southwest PA as well as West Virginia, and *surprise, surprise* the most ardent supports of gun rights (NOT hunting rights, but the actual reason the 2nd exists) are not in general the WV guys, it's the PA guys. This is one man's observation but it is genuine.
