A couple of my articles dealt with American citizens being harassed by authority figures, and I wanted to follow-up on those stories.
Brett Darrow was in a parked car in St. Louis when a cop harassed and threatened him in such a way that it probably spawned more than one homoerotic script. The cop, er um police officer, was fired for this action. His feet are ex-flat, or something.
Michael Righi refused to show his receipt as he left some big electronics store, and was subsequently hassled by a policeman. The charges have been dropped against Michael. I recommend reading his website for detailed updates, particularly on the way the prosecutor attempted to bully him into keeping quiet and not initiating a lawsuit.
