This case is a frightening example of what can happen when a photographer encounters ignorant bullies with badges. According to the complaint filed in Federal Court, Nancy Genovese, a mother of three, was driving home on County Road 31 past Gabreski Airport in Suffolk County. Gabreski Airport displays a decorative helicopter shell by the roadway to the public, which is visible to all who pass by.

(Up-dates).

Is there a Hate Crime here? There certainly is abuse mentally and physically. Deputy Carlock said he would “find something in order to teach all right wingers and tea baggers a lesson” plus denying her legal representation or medical help for hours. (Suffolk Co. police) Congressman Tim Bishop should be asked about the Nancy Genovese incident: call or fax him:
Phone: (202) 225-3826 Fax: (202) 225-3143

Keep in mind this some of this is the Lawyer's report.....however, if any of it is 100% true, these law enforcement men should be fired.

I hope she walks away with the deed to town hall.

This reminds me of my two sons. The older one would do something mean to the younger one and he’d toss a fit. Then the older one would look at me like the younger one was just is nuts. After something similar to a court case, the truth would come out.

They had no business in jailing her. They dropped the charges because the vindictive officer just tagged her with something unsupportable. Violating a citizen’s freedom like this should cost that town dearly.

The only way to get these wild cops nailed and to change policies governing police officers’ abuse of power, is to make it hurt badly. If as she says, the abuser harmed her because of what he thought were political stances, he should be tried and if guilty, executed. Maybe we need some new state sentencing laws for officers who abuse their power and violate citizens’ constitutional rights.

What is incredulous about this?

I'm an avid camera nut, and have a few times been told that I wasn't allowed to take pictures. Once at a ferry terminal, a couple times when I got too close (by boat) to the USS Stennis and also near the Bangor Trident sub base. Warnings may have been stern, but never abusive or unreasonable.

On the other hand, I once pulled out my camera after walking off a plane at a tiny airstrip in southern Algeria and immediately had a half-dozen automatic rifles pointed at me... I quickly put the camera back in the bag and all was well.

I work at a Sheriffs Office.
And I know if someone was questioned for 6 hours on the road, was never read their rights, was denied medical treatment, was misclassified as suicidal, and all charges were dismissed.

Those deputies would IMMEDIATELY be SUSPENDED without pay, and a criminal investigation would be immediately commenced.

I used to live near Reid-Hillview airport.

I guess I’m lucky not to have had similar problems for stopping to look at the Half-Track they had on display for many years.
I don’t know if it’s still there, I think it was an advertising gimmick for a restaurant on the airport property.

San Jose International had a replica biplane at a theme restaurant too, also on airport property.
I’m sure lots of people took pictures.

If looking at or taking pictures of displays on airport property is a problem, take the displays down!

Of course we lose some history, but hey, it’s NECESSARY in order to advance complete Gov. Org. control.

I already posted a link to an article where a federal judge denied a judgement on the case. All this is very odd when almost all the information you can find is only on a bunch of blogs and from the victim's attorney.

The article you posted is extremely misleading. I just read the court docket sheet and what the court denied was Genovese's motion for a default judgment against the Town for failing to serve an answer to the complaint. This is not a judgment on the merits. The court did not dismiss her lawsuit.

I grew up in Suffolk county and know it quite well. I read the title, two paragraphs and three comments and had no idea where this story was taking place so I quit reading, as I’m not going to buy it.

I then skimmed the responses and saw ml/nj’s rude comment and response.

THis is my suffolk Co., NOT the one in Mass., Va not even England or any of the others unknown to me.

Still won’t read it. It’s been too much trouble already.

Agreed. I'm not going to say that we don't have a few "hardcore" guys in our department...where I work......cuz we do. But they are balanced out by the guys like me, who try to keep a level head and don't want to get sued for every little thing we do.
I've stepped in and mediated on several occasions when cooler heads needed to prevail. Perhaps all of those agencies don't have any level-headed officers. I guess anything is possible.

Then again..... a while back I was literally told by someone who broke a traffic law that we weren’t allowed to pull him over because “his sh!t doesn’t stink”. He actually yelled that word-for-word at me.
Let me tell you, it’s hard to maintain a level-head in some of these situations but he didn’t get beaten nor did he get illegally detained.
Although he felt he had been wronged so badly receiving that citation (because his sh!t doesn’t stink) that he began following the officer that ticketed him around town.
Of course you can legally do that......but does a rational person really want to be put on law enforcement’s radar like that?
I guess he weighed his options because he decided to leave well enough alone after a couple minutes.

Search on Nancy Genovese Suffolk, and you get a large batch of hits. She filed suit in federal court, the city failed to respond to the motion in time (city attorney pleaded “I forgot” due to family problems) narrowly escaping the plaintiff being awarded the whole $70 million by default. The suit is still making its way through the system.

Southhampton is only a big clue to people who have heard of Southhampton. Any reason why I should have heard of it over here on the west coast?

You want rude responses lady? Here goes ...

Anyone who hasn't heard of Southampton is spending too much time watching Celebrity Bingo and other TV bilge. Southampton is the summer play place of the NYC in-crowd. ("The Hamptons" You must have heard people talk about it. And no I'm not a Hamptons person. Are you really so uncurious as to not wonder what everyone is talking about?) Have you ever heard of Cape Cod or the "Vineyard"? They're on the east coast too. And we easterners have all heard of Palm Springs and Catalina Island. It's just part of being alive in the United States.

Sorry, people just don’t know about a place called Southhampton.

It seems like to have heard about it they would have to see it on TV or celebrity shows, that is where they learn about Palm Springs.

This story also addresses the statement made frequently on this thread that if TSHTF the police will be on the side of the conservative and the righteous.

LEOs are on the side of the people who sign their paychecks.

I should’ve been clearer, I used the term “hardcore” as defined by the inferences by individuals who don’t think police should be able to raise their voice at someone or police should wait to be wounded before they ask to defend themselves.
You see, there is an ever growing portion of the population that believes they are entitled to not be under the same rules and laws as everyone else.
I don’t see these officers I speak of as truly hardcore, it just seems that an ever growing portion of the population doesn’t like to be told their doing something wrong especially if we have to speak louder than them.
A lot of delicate emotional flowers we have to tip toe around because everyone believes that ALL police officers are bad and none are good at their job and therefore just sue everybody.

Yep, spot on. If a cop pulls you over or warns you that you’re breaking a law it’s always going to be for absolutely no reason and they are definitely always a swastika worshiping fascist. The only people whose sh!t stinks are the police scum. As a true patriot you should start taking care of the scum problem shouldn’t you. Pull up to the next squad car you see, THAT is the true face of evil in there. All police are scum zombie SS fascists. Not a one deserves any compassion. True patriotism (great Americans) is fighting back against the police scum.

It does seem you chose "hardcorps" (to honor the correct source of the term) incorrectly vs. just plain thugs with badges that are well exposed here.

I do think telling a woman “find something in order to teach all right wingers and tea baggers a lesson” is far over the line. That sort of statement by a cop is meant to incite and threaten, not just a failure to coddle.

I live in a small town in Hawaii, and often wave to the local cops, who mostly seem to be good guys. There are a few who seem to have an attitude without ever being in contact with me.

You know the type I am sure: the glare if someone is seen observing them while they are occupied with ticket writing, etc. That sort of non-verbal challenge and potential threat is not going to help if the same citizen drives by and sees said cop getting the hell beat out of him. Two way street I am sure you know.

Well, if so, then she and her 2 ADULT sons would be easily found to have been lying to local, state and Federal Law Enforcement Authorities (in and of itself a serious felonious offense) and set all this in motion in order to have grounds to sue?

Guess most of you skeptical individuals don't keep track of what is happening throughout our country on a daily basis by a sizeable number of out of control, jack-booted, thug, LEO?

Right of the top of my head, I give this horific experience a better than 80% chance of being accurate.

"Yep, spot on. If a cop pulls you over or warns you that you’re breaking a law it’s always going to be for absolutely no reason and they are definitely always a swastika worshiping fascist...."

Well I have video of the fine upstanding LEOs in my town who are kicking in a door (without a warrant) and looting a downtown building because a Government official didn't like the guy who owns the place.

I will soon be giving an affidavit to the fact the lawyers have already got a copy of my security vids of the incident. Two of those LEOs are being charged with Trafficking in Drugs and the Third (the Chief) is under investigation by the State for theft in office and Drug Trafficking.

So you can shove your self righteous Bullshit where the sun don't shine!

BTW I was told by one of those LEOs I would have my door kicked in if I turned over the Videos. I reminded him I would invoke Ohio's Castle Doctrine if such were to occur and my Cameras would be covering the incident and would gladly turn the Vids over to the state!

Some years ago I lived in Northern Ireland...three years, ‘78 - ‘81. One Monday evening I heard on the radio that a car bomb had gone off in Portadown, at the top of the town near one of my watering holes. I grabbed my camera, jumped into my car and headed to town.

There were police lines taped off and a quite a few people behind the lines, looking to see whatever could be seen. I began taking pictures. After a few minutes I found myself confronted from the other side of the police line by...police...4 or 5 of them. They asked me who I was, who I was working for, and why I was taking pictures.

I answered them - my name (and as I spoke they identified me as ‘American’), and told them my employer (a large multinational company with a plant there). And in response to the ‘why I was taking pictures’, I answered that it was for me and stated that it IS okay that I take pictures (I did not ask that it was okay).

I immediately got an affirmative response to that ‘statement’ and then to my surprise and to the surprise of those around me witnessing the encounter, I was invited INSIDE the police lines and given carte blanche to move about whereever i wanted to go and freely take pictures.
