***This is absolutely, positively nuts. An Indiana state trooper was fired for witnessing during traffic stops. That's outrageous enough on its face, but the woman is filing a lawsuit, alleging her rights were violated. Why? Because he invited her to church and gave her directions. How horrifying!!!
Senior Trooper Brian Hamilton, 40, was a 14-year veteran of the agency, Fox 59 reported. His firing was announced two days after the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana filed suit on behalf of driver Wendy Pyle, who claimed her rights were violated after Hamilton pulled her over in January.No wonder our college students think their rights have been violated when someone disagrees with them.
"While all of us — citizen and police officer — enjoy the right to freedom of religion and freedom of speech," State Police Superintendent Doug Carter said in a statement, "there are appropriate and proper restrictions placed on agents of the State related to their actions while engaged in their official duties."
The lawsuit alleged that Hamilton gave Pyle a warning after pulling her over for speeding. Hamilton then asked her what church she went to and whether she was saved. The lawsuit claimed Pyle answered "yes" to both questions because she was uncomfortable and wanted the stop to end.
The lawsuit then claims Hamilton invited Pyle to attend services at his church and gave her directions.
Pyle filed a formal complaint with the Indiana State Police and was later told that Hamilton had placed her on a prayer list at his church, the suit says.
Hamilton had previously been sued following a similar stop in August 2014, during which driver Ellen Bogan accused him of violating her constitutional rights.
***Alan Grayson is vying for Marco Rubio's senate seat. That man is certifiably crazy. No wonder Democrats love him. That, and he's facing an ethics violation inquiry. That's a resume enhancement for liberals.
***And the craziness continues...Judge bans Christian cross from Los Angeles County seal. This is what you get when you elect liberals. Idiot judges.
Two little words that can make the difference: START NOW.
