All this sh*t, but they couldn’t stop the Boston Bombers, and they won’t stop the next ones either, because it is so much easier to chase sorority girls around supermarket parking lots.
I know it is not the VA ABCs responsibility to catch terrorists, but even if the girls had bought beer or liquor illegally, is that what we think would be the proper response?
There are some Keystone kops that are going to get killed - or kill someone - over this nonsense. Ah, to live in the age of zero tolerance (and zero common sense).
The real enemy to the leaders of this nation are Christian conservative’s, the government is starting to flex it’s muscle in many different areas, this story shows but one, look at DHS and airport screening and searches, look at NYC and random searches of people on the street.
There are many more examples of what is happening, but first we must understand that it is happening.
Please, please, use every legal resource available to you, perhaps including private suits against the thugs involved. Discourage these criminals from making future attacks.
Incompetent, jack booted thugs.
Not even capable of identifying themselves properly and then charge her with a crime for protecting herself as any sensible woman would do.
In the 60s in Orlando, one night I had (what turned out to be) an unmarked cop try to pull me over with no lights, just started waving at me and pulling up next to me. Hell if I was going to stop at 1 am with no other cars around. Then he turned on the lights and after I pulled over gave me a lot of crap about not stopping at once. Prick.
That lyin' sounds vaguely familiar...
The public wants to know the names of ALL the ABC agents involved in this incident.
I wonder if this will help McDonnell’s efforts to privatize the ABCs?
I shared an apartment off ship in Norfolk. Everyone knew all too well how Virgina was on alcohol especially beer of all things. If you were on your porch drinking a beer the cops would invite themselves onto your property to arrest you. Buying the beer was legal as was stronger drink. But you had to go inside your house and hide from LEO eyes to drink it. However if you walked past an officer smoking a joint they likely wouldn't notice it or care. That was over 30 years ago.
“When Daly slipped her keys into the ignition to crack the windows, a male agent yanked at the door handle, banged on the window and yelled at the women to exit the vehicle, said Daly’s front-seat passenger, who asked not to be identified.”
I’ve been in more than a few neighborhoods where that very behavior will definitely get you hit,run over, or holed, and no one will see anything.
No wonder they pick on college girls.
Board Members (There are only TWO!)
Chairman J. Neal Insley of Poquoson has served as an ABC special agent and an attorney, and has more than 14 years experience in alcohol-related laws, regulations and procedures.
Comment: Looks like your typical Turd LEO who has risen to his own level of incompetence. Also, always be wary of someone whose first name is an initial. It’s indicative of a little man complex (probably has an inadequate penis too)
Commissioner Sandra C. Canada of Virginia Beach is a four-time gubernatorial appointee with more than 25 years of public relations and fundraising experience.
Comment: Another political hack who’s strengths have absolutely nothing to do with law enforcement. Probably got where she is today on her back.
Come on VA, can these two! They are a couple of misfits!
The Left, the unions, the idiots are castigating children for playing with toy guns; yet, they facilitate the adult form of child’s play by arming and commissioning bureaucracies to fiddle with real guns and arrest.
How about we let the kids play Cowboys and Indians and disarm the wanna-be heroes in govt.
Need to make an arrest? Call the Sheriff.
Even if it had been beer, is beer illegal? How would they have known if she was underage?
There is no rational justification for this cop-thuggism.
Maybe they also had a carton of smokes?
Thanks for the update. VA Alcoholic Beverage Control agents are out of control. I added the Keyword “virginiaabc” to the various articles posted here on this incident so far.
And here is their lame statement attempting to explain their agents' behavior.
Agents were working in the area, concentrating on underage possession enforcement. An agent observed what appeared to be an underage person in possession of what appeared to be a case of beer, and approached her to investigate. The agent identified herself as a police officer and was displaying her badge. Other agents did not join the incident until the subject refused to cooperate. Rather than comply with the officers' requests, the subject drove off, striking two officers. She was not arrested for possessing bottled water, but for running from police and striking two of them with a vehicle.
The agents were acting upon reasonable suspicion and this whole unfortunate incident could have been avoided had the occupants complied with law enforcement requests. We take all citizen complaints seriously and the matter is currently under review by the ABC Bureau of Law Enforcement.
Elect a pro-2nd amendment, Constitutional sheriff in your county, and this crap will end real quick.
I’ve seen these sheriffs run off all manner of armed thugs, including fascist federal bureaucrats.
