Man gives change to homeless person, is handcuffed and held by police for an hour
Greg Snider was in a Houston, Texas parking lot, on the phone making a business call. While in the lot, a homeless man approached his car and asked forchange. Snider gave him 75 cents and then drove off. KPRC Local 2 News reported on the shocking thing that happened next.
When Snider pulled onto a nearby freeway, a police car pulled him to the side. Greg was surprised by how aggressive the officer was, telling KPRC, He's screaming. He's yelling. He's telling me to get out of the car. He's telling me to put my hands on the hood They're like, 'We saw you downtown. We saw what you did. And I was like, 'Are you kidding me? I gave a homeless man 75 cents.'"
He was dragged out of his car and handcuffed. So what was it that police insisted Mr. Snider had done? Give that homeless man drugs. Again, he didnt. Snider only gave the man some money.
Snider agreed to let police search his cars for drugs, and they did so for an hour while Greg remained handcuffed. In that time, ten more police cars showed up and pulled over. The search was not fruitful no drugs were found in the car. That is, because, as previously mentioned, Snider didnt have any drugs to give. Aside from the damage police did to his car, Snider isnt happy that the police were actually laughing about the mistake.

A policeman was actually spotted in Houston? I call BS.
Their reputation precedes them way on back to the 70’s. Check out the news stories, you'll see what I'm talking about.
The Torres case, The Webster case, Chad Holley case...on and on.
Never do that... let them get a warrant first.
He’s lucky they didn’t find something left there by a mechanic or a cop
Oh boy! More badge lickin’ stuff for alaska wolfie-ette to fantasise over!
Glad the guy didn’t have a dog with him...
It is early, they will be here.
Sounds like the cop ingests excessive steroids.
What is the problem??? No dogs were killed and all the officers went home safe.
Now pick up that can, comrade.....
This was really a very tense situation for the cop — so he called in ten more cars for backup. This poor guy is very lucky they didn’t shoot him or frame him.
There’s a new lawyer commercial on my local TV station. The attorney starts off by saying, We’ve seen more and more cases of law-abiding people who have never had trouble with the law, being accused of a crime that they didn’t know was a crime.
This whole country is full of Union thugs looking for new and ever petty ways to milk the clock and hassle people. All you Law and Order Republicans who demanded the WOD and more Police, well i hope you like what you wrought for my children. Ugh. This freedom loving Land of Liberty really sucks. Major siphonage.
No he won’t. The vomit puking dog, also known as, alaska wolf got the ZOT a while back.
That is what foreigners say after they have sex with 13 year olds and drink and drive.
“We didn’t know it was a crime here”
and some judges will let them off
He’s lucky they didn’t plant something on him.
Never consent to a search.
My guess is that the cop by saying that he saw a crime being committed, did not need a warrant for a search.
At that point, he had probable cause.
Even though it was based on either a lie or a real mistake.
However, considering that cases like this will usually end up in court, one should not consent.If the judge rules the search was illegal, your case is made much stronger.
It is amazing the man still has his money and car.
Snider agreed to let police search his cars for drugs
