“Land of the Free” Update: Man Endlessly Harassed by CopPigs Over Four Years

A Horrifying Story of ‘Stop and Frisk’ Taken to Its Logical Extreme

In Miami Gardens, Florida, however, an even more aggressive approach to policing – one that verges on the Kafkaesque — is going strong, as revealed in an extraordinary story in yesterday’s Miami Herald.

The paper told the story of Earl Sampson, a 28-year-old Miami Gardens resident who has been stopped and questioned 258 times in four years, searched more than 100 times, and arrested and jailed 56 times. The worst offense he’s been convicted of? Possession of marijuana.

But the truly mind-blowing thing about the case is that Sampson has been arrested dozens of times for trespassing at the convenience store where he works.

Ok, now you can get back to Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC so you can figure out who you’re going to swing your 1/300 millionth say towards in the next election. Or, go out and buy yourself a lottery ticket and cling to it for dear life.
