This case is a frightening example of what can happen when a photographer encounters ignorant bullies with badges. According to the complaint filed in Federal Court, Nancy Genovese, a mother of three, was driving home on County Road 31 past Gabreski Airport in Suffolk County. Gabreski Airport displays a decorative helicopter shell by the roadway to the public, which is visible to all who pass by.

Lieutenant Iberger grabbed her camera and handled it “without care”. In an attempt to prevent the lieutenant from damaging the camera, Nancy removed her memory card, which Lieutenant Iberger confiscated.

I don't like a police state, and I'm not defending the action of the officer. But I will say that if an officer grabs your camera, then I think it will be difficult for a citizen to subsequently remove the memory card. This just doesn't ring true for me.

I have the feeling that this woman's rendition of the story may not be 100% accurate.

"may not be accurate"

Plus the asking for 70 million bucks. Why didn't she just make it an even 100 million? (smirk)

If this is 10% true, there need to be public hangings.

What is incredulous about this?

If you have ever met a power-tripping petty tyrant with a badge you know this type of abuse is fairly routine.
I speak from experience, in more than one city and state.

If you have never met one of these putrid punks you may still believe the fairy tale that all LE have only our best interest at heart.

In fact it appears the majority now see everything in an “US vs THEM!” light.
You are either a cop, or suspect.

If the article is factual, it’s pretty clear the “sheriff” here is a liberal brown-shirt.
Hopefully he loses the lawsuit, and his job.

...Lieutenant Iberger pushed Nancy Genovese when she objected to the seizure of her rifle. Deputy Carlock taunted Nancy, asking in a disparaging tone, “You’re a real right winger, aren’t you?”, and stating in words or substance that she was never going to see her rifle again.

Only 'terrorists' the modern liberal Police State knows is 'right wingers'... I'll bet he would NEVER stereotype a black or a Muslim with that level of contempt. Time to sue?

Well - if a mod feels generous today, they might change the title to the original - per the rules.

If not feeling thus, they might just pull it.

Not so unbelievable...Long Island, New York Police State at its F....g best! It is long past time to take our country back from the evil POS leftist freedom haters. I hope she wins big on her suit. And I hope heads roll...castration and incarceration is too good for them, but a place to start.

Well, if you'd gone to the US Open at Shinnecock you might 'cause Gabreski Airport is where they parked us all.

"Southampton" is kind of a big clue too.

But I do agree with you that all of the posts should be tagged at least with a State ID.

Assuming for the sake of argument that it is all true, if I were her, and I won, I would deduct $10 million in settlement for each policeman involved that the state agreed to fire without pay and retirement benefits. That would go a long way towards providing satisfaction.

I agree:

Certainly this story must have more to it. but it is evident that common sense on someone’s part went out the window.

Too bad Whites don’t have a Jesse Jackass ot Al Sharptongue to take up case’s for them.

Police just walk all over our rights without fear of prosecution.

i had some of that feeling as well. The web site, links, and updates to the story (including the denied default judgement) appear credible. The absence of this story from ANYWHERE else is eerie.

No relevant hits for Nancy Genovese at GoogleNews.

A general search for Lieutenant Iberger reveals the same story over and over on a whole bunch of different blogs, with no follow-on information. It appears this Lieutenant Iberger did retire in April from a separate news item published. However, with just a quick search I was unable to find out any other information. If this happened at the beginning of the year I would think there would be some sort of new info out there.

She sounds like a nut case, who goes to the range with their rifle, while carrying $13,000.00 in cash in their purse? This story involves so many people and agencies and odd actions, that it seems more like the conspiracy that would be needed in the JFK assassination aftermath.

“Despite the woman’s protests, Nancy was physically moved by the two men wearing “Suffolk County Emergency Response Team” jackets to another room. There, another woman who identified herself as a nurse administered, without Nancy’s consent, two injections into Nancy’s arm. One of the men held Nancy’s head so that she could not see what was being done, while the other man held Nancy’s arm down. Despite her demands to know what they were doing, no one answered her. Nancy experienced bruising and swelling in her neck and arm long after she was released from custody.

Nancy was then escorted by the two men into a cell area, where she was forced to disrobe and put on a “suicide gown”, consisting of a heavy, jacket-type blanket that fastens around the body with Velcro. Nancy was not permitted to wear undergarments under the blanket. Nancy was required to wear this same “suicide gown” for the next several days. After three days, Nancy was evaluated by a psychiatrist who determined her to be of sound and stable mind, and immediately removed her from suicide watch.”

Oh, I see. I got my dates mixed up. This happened in 2009 but a I found an article that said a Federal Judge ruled against the Genovese lady in February 2011.

Federal judge denies judgment for nightmare arrest

I just don't see how this didn't gain a minimal amount of grassroots following country-wide if it's all true. Also, How did this police Lt. carry on for 2 years until retirement without any of the townsfolk throwing an uproar. In fact, if the PD was that fascistic how has there not been more instances of abuse or people making huge lawsuits against the town?

According to the text of the original story posted, the allegation that she went there previously to take pictures and was warned not to, is a lie.

Also, what version of the event did you expect “newsday” to publish?? Certainly not hers.

Doesn’t make any of it true, at the link you posted.

That could make a decent amount of difference. We're only getting one side of the story. Perhaps this person and/or her family has some sort of reputation in the county already and when a LEO see's her lurking around a military installation he gets the wrong (or right) idea.

Either that or she planned it all on purpose. Either way, I already posted a link to an article where a federal judge denied a judgement on the case. All this is very odd when almost all the information you can find is only on a bunch of blogs and from the victim's attorney.
