the agentssix men and one woman, all in plainclothesapproached suspecting the box, a blue carton of LaCroix sparkling water, to be a 12-pack of beer. One jumped on the hood of her SUV; another pulled out a gun
"They began trying to break the windows. My roommates and I were ... terrified"
The students called 911 as they left the parking lot
agents arrested Daly and charged her with two counts of assaulting a law enforcement officer and one count of eluding policeeach carrying a maximum penalty of five years in prison and $2,500 in fines
Even if it had been beer, this is wrong.
The charges against her were dropped.
“The charges against her were dropped.”
Hope that she and the people with her sue! And those suits should be civil and criminal, with jail time for the cops. They are really lucky no one was shot.
"You don't know all the facts until you complete the investigation," he said.
Plainclothes police bust a 20 y.o. buying what they thought was beer at a supermarket, 7 folks with guns drawn and unintelligible badges.
They tell her to roll down windows, but she can't unless the "car is started"(?).
She "may" have grazed one of them after her roommate told her to get out of there. Gets felony charges for that, since dropped.
Are all cops in VA really this stupid? How would they have probable cause unless they knew how old she really was? Was there a simultaneous bust of the store clerk that checked her out - or did they bust the self-checkout attendant?
When the liquor Schutzstaffel officers tried to stop her as she left the store, she ran instead of stopping and showing them what she bought. She and her girlfriend jumped in their vehicle, rolled up the windows, and drove off, running over two officers in the process. Sounds like everybody was hysterical, not just the cops.
>>Are all cops in VA really this stupid?
No, all cops are this stupid...not just in VA.
Six men and one woman..., seven agents trying to take down one young woman who bought water. And yet, they still think they were wronged in the exchange.
One jumps on the hood, one pulls a gun threatening the women with lethal force..., for buying designer water.
All seven should have gone home realizing they could have ended the life of an innocent young woman, but for the grace of God. No, they had to file complaints that sought to cast themselves in the ‘wronged’ position.
I try to defend law enforcement most of the time. In this instance I can see seven agents in the wrong line of work.
I’m not sure if they are qualified to draw unemployment or not, but they are most definitely not qualified to draw a law enforcement paycheck.
I guess these days everybody is a S.W.A.T. team.
If you’re a young woman out late at night, what is your number one duty to yourself? Hang around after several unknown men demand you do so, or run and sort it out later?
She did exactly what she should have.
In this day and age you never know who these people are. Seven people showing you seven different badges? Not a real confidence builder there.
And as far as two cops getting bumped by the vehicle, I’ll bet they could have gotten out of the way if they wanted to. They allowed themselves to be brushed so they could add assault in if nothing else stuck.
Each of these people should be given at least 30 days suspension without pay.
WTH story did you read? Try again.
Two sorority girls in the doorway of a market carrying stuff and seven LEOs can’t stop them from getting in their car and driving away?
Cops lie. All for the right reasons, dontcha see.
This is part of the Nazification of the US. If the people of her town aren’t milling around at her hearing and protesting, there will be more of the same. there and everywhere. We are all getting used to it.
“Undercover agents” means they were trying to look like everybody else.
So how the freak are the girls supposed to know they are law enforcement?
Of course the girls ran. Of course they drove off when these hoodlums jumped on her vehicle and tried breaking the windows. And pulled weapons.
The girl saw hoodlums acting aggressively toward her and her girlfriend(s).
She did the the right thing.
The MORONS with the badges are lucky people didn’t get killed.
What they did was wrong. What they did SHOULD be illegal.
At the very bare minimum they should pay for the damages to the vehicle. They SHOULD be paying a lot more than that - they should be unemployed.
This crap needs to stop.
Easily the oddest part of this story and something no one has mentioned either in the original article or in the responses here is why were there 7 undercover cops assigned to stop someone from illegally buying beer?
I may be alone in this, but I think it’s good to know that we’re protected!
Here's the local press write-up: Virginia Cops With Nothing Better To Do Terrorize Nervous College Girl And Nearly Get People Killed
The prosecutors in this country are now the criminals.
If we had cops as attentive to terrorists as they are to kids buying beer, maybe we could all sleep a little easier at night.
I used to have respect for LEO’s but after stories like this plus all the pet shootings they scare the living cr&p out of me.
