for this boy, possible possession of marijuana, distribution, and paraphenelia. Our family's names were not on the warrant. just our address. The police said they were searching the boys apartment;
they DID not. The lied. I am worried they bugged our apartment,
tapping all our phones and I must be in court in two hours.
The really ransacked our apartment and roughed me up. I fully cooperated. I asked them if I could get dressed. It took 15 minutes of me begging and I am a 59 year old woman; I opened the door and they threw me to the outside wall.
are our phones tapped or GPS'ed? Its my boy who is being processed,not me. I was given a ticket to go to municipal court
for trace elements of marijuana in a bowl. $1000.00 ticket
I am concerned as they have arrested my sons friend, they might tap
our phones continually. Can they do that? Can I ask them in court to stop that as they have ransacked our house. My son nor I have ever been arrrested. My son has a clean record until now. What about the 4th amendment? Did I not have a right to tell the police not to rough me up and provide warrants for wiretapping phones?
