Eastman said one officer pointed a pistol at his head and held him in a chokehold while demanding to know where the group had marijuana.
wouldnt yah think that would kinda be a violation of Eastmans fifth amendment rights also not just 4th ? hell he's damn lucky he didnt get shot on the face for not answering the questions from a rogue cop murder is defacto legal in this country now a days as long as you have a badge and a gun because some commrades are a LOT more equal then others thanks to the war on some drugs

"When Eastman didn't answer, they searched the apartment, found a gram of marijuana and arrested him."
All this over enough pot to make a doobee, and a small one at that.

Portsmouth seems to have a lot of this stuff going on. I have seen several articals related to heavy handed cop stuff in the papers.

1 gram is what 1/28th of an ounce. That was some righteous pot ring they broke up there. If ya assume that the pot was $50 a quarter ounce... this was $7 worth of marijuana.
I want to see the police press conference picture where they show off the fruits of their bust.

Who wants to bet this officer of the law is hard at work today instead of locked up for violating these citizen's rights?

lawyer said police had plenty of time to get a search warrant but didn't. The state said a warrantless search was justified.
Justified? On what grounds? Warrant or no warrant, since when does "hear[ing] what they said sounded like juveniles talking about drugs and alcohol" constitute probable cause for a search of somebody's home?
