Posted on 04/13/2013 9:02:43 AM PDT by redreno
Like several cases we have seen over the years, North Carolina resident Felicia Gibson was arrested for video recording a traffic stop from her front yard.
Salisbury Police Sgt. Mark Hunter even went as far as chasing Gibson inside her home where he arrested her for resisting arrest.
And when Gibson took the case to trial, Judge Beth Dixon further pissed on the Constitution by convicting her.
The story struck such a nerve with me that I launched an online drive to derail her re-election campaign in 2010, which included several blog posts, localized online ads as well as a Facebook page that still ranks in the top three when you Google Judge Beth Dixon.
The PINAC Wrath was so strong that she was forced to delete her campaign Facebook page as I wrote back then:

She was very, very lucky they did not shoot and kill her.
Link does not work.
That's a bit a circular charge isn't it.
She should have shot and killed the cop as soon as he entered her house.
LEOs that take such actions are inviting personal retribution.
I thought that too.
Here is another... same police dept.: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vyKFUC_eidA
Try it now. It worked for me.
Still doesn't work for me.
And, I tried searching for the site on Google, and when clicking on the links it provided, they did not work either.
The site's server is periodically offline??
I live in NC and every time the news comes on all you here is cops shooting unarmed people and they were put on leave so they can investigate the incident!
The police force in this area is so crooked that after 2 years of being here I think I will head back to NW PA where I feel safer, amongst hunters and bible clinging yankees!
I have seen more police in 3 days around here compared to the same amount as 6 months in PA!
What do the cops care? The taxpayer foots the bill.
Wow, Judge Beth Dixon sounds like a perfect fit for the Holder “justice” department.
The cops may yet do just that.As a warning to others.
Idiot cops. They don’t know the law and they don’t wish to know the law. They just want to be the bully.
And they are frightened, sissy bullies, look at how quickly fat boy reaches for his gun with the PREACHER reaches in his bag. Take away the badge and these morons would run away from a 3rd grader.
Why would police be upset with people videoing them if they are not doing anything wrong? They are public servants in a public area doing their job. It might be annoying to them, but if I were a cop acting in an official capacity, I would just be professional and go about my business.
I am installing video devices on my truck and motorcycle, they link up instantly with my smart phone. Unless you are trained to spot them they are not noticeable.
And with the plethora of internet forums its just a few clicks away from being posted so millions can see these images.
Students especially are going after rabid left wing teachers spewing anti-conservative trash talk, they look so disgusting when their video hits the news, saw one this morning, and more will happen, communism and its players will be exposed.
Funny how that works when applied to the citizen, but not the official.
