FOX 31 ^ | June 2, 2012

Posted on 06/03/2012 3:23:17 AM PDT by AmonAmarth

AURORA, Colo. – Police have a “person of interest” in custody in connection with the robbery of the Wells Fargo back at 15301 E. Hampden Avenue Saturday afternoon.

Immediately following the robbery, police closed the intersection of Iliff and Buckley after reports the suspect might have taken hostages.

According to our crew on the scene, police stopped and searched nearly two dozen cars. The adult occupants of the vehicles were handcuffed during the investigation.

Sometimes I think that both the Media and the Police departments are going out of their way to create an “Us vs. Them” environment here in America. The end result of such thinking is that “Them/those people” are not really people and deserve everything that is done to them.

Now the real kicker here is this: When will the public at large start to think the same things toward the Police Forces?

Why don’t they go to Congress and detain all the ‘Rat reps. Without a doubt the robbery suspect is there and they’ll find quite a few others.

So in response to a suspect taking hostages, the police took hostages too? Great, just great.

So mass preventive detentions are now legal? This will cause its own problems. If you resist, are you resisting arrest, failing to follow police orders, what?

Exactly how should the possible hostage situation been handled instead of what was done. What procedures and steps should have been taken to immediately solve the situation as opposed to what they did?

What should the exact law enforcement/police process have been in that situation?

What should the exact process have been in that situation? I mean, as experienced law enforcement professionals not hamstrung by liberal laws passed by liberals, I assume you should all be able to have perfectly solved and mitigated that situation.

I mean, as opposed to simply doing nothing what should have been done? Since all local and county police are nothing more than stormtroppers in Obama’s personal civilian army, drones if you will, with Obama giving personal orders to every single cop in the nation.

Lord knows I just love signing on duty, jacking my brain into the matrix, and getting all my daily unconstitutional orders from Obama and Holder. it’s like they’re my besties while I’m on duty. The little burning constitution sitting on my shoulder telling me what I should do to deny every single person’s rights that I come into contact with.

Oh, it’s just great, when I’m not on duty (shooting every dog I see) I’m off at the secret Agenda 21 bunker training at the gas chambers for when we’re ordered to round up all the tea partiers.

ummm, easy answer, dont handcuff innocent people, they could have asked the adults to sit on the curb while one officer searched and another watched the adults. Really no need to handcuff.

Better yet, the police should have handed in their guns and vests then went out at the intersections and just started asking passerby’s nicely and sweetly if they were the robbers:

“Excuse sir or ma’am I have no idea if you ARE the robbers who might have guns and hostages, but if you are could you PLEASE tell me.”

“No?”

Well, OK then by golly. That’s a good enough answer for me. See you later.”

Interesting observation. I wonder what was the race and sex composition of the group that was detained? Was there any difference in treatment of the various groups? What was the legal basis to detain and search vehicles and people who just happened to be traveling through a particular intersection? etc. The FOIAs and legal motions should have already started.

Yeah - that pesky Constitution is so inconvenient, and just gets in the way of ‘Effective Law Enforcement’...

They should file suit for false imprisonment, reckless endangerment of life, violation of established law with regard to suspicion, probable cause and timely notification of arrest.

These goons should be imprisoned. Nothing but goddam goons.

You’re exactly right. There should be no active investigation of any crime ever again.

Everyone should just be expected to go tell the police on themselves as opposed to the police attempting to solve the crime.

It should just be one person sitting in a small office waiting for all the lawbreakers to turn themselves in so that they aren’t all illegally detained for questioning because the whole process of a criminal investigation is actually unconstitutional.

I can see it now, with that new system, all the murderers and rapists and bank robbers just turning themselves sin for due process, and no police out there running roughshod over the constitution by illegally investigating things.

Every time someone posts about "The Great Takeover" conspiracy it's an exaggeration. An extremely annoying one too.
The USA has already been taken over, we're already under despotic rule.
Stormtroopers marching down mainstreet burning patriots alive is an all around ridiculous conspiracy story, illogical at best. Especially when we've slowly almost succumbed to that level already.
The leftists cried out that there was going to be a rightwing takeover in the eighties, the conservatives cried the same conspiracy story under Clinton, then the leftists again under Bush, now we're back to the conservatives crying wolf again.
It's old and it's tired. The only reason the government is so big and bloated and despotic is because we the people have let them become so.
Incidentally, I know no police officers who do actually take orders from anyone except their Chief and their respective state statutes. If "The Great Takeover" conspiracy materialized there is no police officer I know of that would take any orders from any federal official. The rightwing conspiracy theorists never seem to realize that the reason that the police in socialist countries turn into SS stormtroopers is because the police in all the socialist countries (ie Europe) are federal government police already.......not quite the same set-up as the local law enforcement in the US.

Then who is to blame for what we read and see first hand every day? Pets being killed on the spot for no reason? Doors being blown open and innocent people being killed because the police cant even get the god**m address right? Unlawful detention? Planting false evidence? And this is happening more frequently by the day. I have seen some of this firsthand so if you feel the police are being unfairly treated you have only yourselves to blame.

I’m not sure if you are making a joke here, but I’ll assume you are.

The Police know that the law “can” come down on them just as hard as the rest of us. “I was just following orders” was dis-proven as a legitimate defense at Nuremberg and it applies here also. Also the concept of “Ignorance of the Law” isn’t a legitimate defense either, (Even though it should be in some cases).

No what I think is happening in this instance as well as in other locations around the U.S. is that the Police are finding themselves at a mid-ground between being a “Law and Order” Peace Officer and a Para-Military type. It’s a terribly fine line between the two positions at times and crisis and stressful situations don’t really lend themselves to calm and rational thinking.

I feel for them terribly and know myself well enough that I wouldn’t be a good Police Officer. But with all of that empathy and feeling aside they really need to know that the law applies to them also and breaking it in the pursuit of their duties needs to be prosecuted and punished as necessary.

I'm not saying the law shouldn't affect cops. I make excuses for no man, if they truly break the law.
You're understanding of things is commendable, unlike the rest of FR. On here, while I'm trying to get my aggregated news I can't get anywhere else I have be deluged by so-called fellow patriots who, as fas as I know, would rather put a bullet in my back as much as spit on me because I am a cop.
Because of the so-called patriotism on FreeRepublic I now have to wonder if the next so-called patriot I come into contact with is going to be just as dangerous & life-threatening to me as a drugged-out gangbanger.
There is constructive criticism and deserved oversight, then there is directed hate and here on FreeRepublic there is nothing but hate and veiled threats for all law enforcement.
I'm going to keep getting my aggregated news here because it's the best spot for it, but I feel compelled to defend my brothers and sisters even if it's with facetious sarcasm.

************************************************************

Well, you are correct—they weren’t “just following orders”. What they were doing was DOING THEIR JOB & CATCHING THE BAD GUY. Sometimes that causes some inconvenience. I’d much rather having cops doing good and actually doing their jobs (as these cops were doing) than have them do bad things (such as the goon cops in Wisconsin suppressing the exercise of free speech by pro-Walker demonstrator).

Let’s cut the cops some slack when they are after bad guys using legal means—and being successful.

The feeling you note towards “Law Enforcement Officers” is due to their own actions and attitude to ordinary law abidibg citizens. At one time on this forum, they were universaly respected. Their actions and deeds changed that. They have no one to blame but themselves. At one time I taught my children and grandchildren that the police were their friends. They should not fear them. I no longer do that. I now fear the police more than I fear the criminal.

Which is fine because it's a free country. But there, of course, is the reason why I now believe that so-called patriots are just as untrustworthy as criminals and would like to kill me just as much as any other cop-hater:
You see all cops as criminals, I see all patriots as untrustworthy anarchists who would like to shoot me if I dare try to investigate a crime.
Which side fosters the "us vs. them" more at this point?

law enforcement: this is the problem, It was not that long ago that you were called a “Peace Officer”, your transformation into Law Enforcement Officer is where the problem lies. No Longer are Police members of the Community, they are nothing more than Jack Booted Thugs, hired to enforce the tyrannical laws set forth by their leaders, with no regards for the truth, the law, or the constitution, and of course the RIGHTS of the CITIZENS to live their lives without Jack Booted thugs trying to TAX US at every step for merely living our lives and then you come by and shoot our dogs just for fun, For the most part your job is to TAX THE CITIZENS through UNCONSTITUTIONAL INFRACTIONS, whereby the defendant does not have a RIGHT to A Full and Complete Legal Defense. Not to mention you are all LIARS. So if you think the people are against you, you are absolutely correct, but you did it to yourselves.

Sig Heil you jack booted thug.

Defend your brother and sisters? As opposed to defending the constitutional rights of Americans? That tells me right there what side your on. If you cant even concede that detaining innocent bystanders and subjecting them to searches is against the constitution then there is no hope for you. Again I have witnessed first hand the overuse of force and lack of common sense, discretion by your “brothers and sisters” and it has left a very bad taste in my mouth. I now fear the police more than I ever did.
