I am Landon ******.I believe I was assaulted by an

Hello, I am Landon ******.I believe I was assaulted by an officer and abducted by the police and am wondering if there is any way you can assist me in a law suit or beating my case which I believe is unjust.My situation;After pulling into my driveway and exiting the vehicle I was surprised to see there was an officer aggressively approaching me and yelling at me. I was frightened and I stood still as he continued to yell. As he got close enough that I could understand what he was saying, I heard him tell me to get back into the car and immediately after he asked me what I was doing. I replied, "nothing" as I held out my palms to show that there was only my debit card in my hands at which time he grabbed and twisted my arm and hurt me. I did not want to get into any physical altercation, nor do I believe that I acted in anyway to incite physical aggression or violence. I believe I was being assaulted and bullied and I freed myself and ran into my home where I thought I would be safe. I told my wife what was happening as more officers showed up and knocked on the door.I opened the door and was pulled out of my home by a different officer at which time I was interrogated by all of the officers as to why I ran from the first officer and I replied "I was scared". I was then put in hand cuffs and pushed into a police vehicle. I was never told that I was under arrest or read my rights but still was taken to the police department where I was told after I sign the documents placed in front of me that I would be free to go. Then I was told that I would have to post bail or go to jail until my court date. I posted bail and was allowed to leave.

I dont know if you can assist me or point me in the right direction.

i dont know if you can assist me or point me in the right direction. I had lived with someone much younger than myself and he had been taking money out of my accounts without permission to the tune of approximately $20,000, He had a former grand larceny conviction in Miami, Florida approximately 10 years ago. I also have texts that he owes someone else $31,000. He has many ids in different names, and credit cards in different names. He uses his father's identity- which he states his father says it is ok (his father is a pizza delivery man in Miami) There are NO credit cards in his name - only his father's. I also have witness and texts in attesting to this information. I had to change my debit cards many times, and my personal checking account a couple of times. He lived with me rent free. I am 62, and feel he abused me financially

Can you sue a law enforcement agency trauma to

can you sue a law enforcement agency for emotional trauma to a 13 year old during an arrest. My grand daughter was in the car when a special task force with guns drawn arrested my daughter. They put a gun in my grand daughters face. The arresting agency was given false information about my daughter and the warrants by the county in which the warrants were issued. My daughters attorney still can't find any warrants or case numbers. The charges are fradulent use of a credit/debit card. The arresting county was told she is a drug dealer/ murderer and various other violent offenses all oh which are untrue. She is a convicted felon with two months supervised probation left on her sentence for theft charges. She is not nor has ever been a violent offender. The arresting county has apologized to her and for the distress it caused my grand daughter and admits they were given false information. Can the issuing county be sued?

Customer: Our former landlord has accused us of stealing his appliances. Our rental contract stated that any appliances that needed to be replaced during our tenancy would be done at our expense, and that we (the tenant) will retain ownership of the appliances. I need to know how to defend and protect myself against this. JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: The house we rented had been vacant for over 2 years and was in disrepair. Our contract listed the various problems with the house, and that we had permission to repair as necessary. It also stated that if any appliances were not functional, we would purchase them at our expense, but retain ownership of the appliances. We took those appliances with us when we moved out. He sent us a text saying that we stole those appliances from him, and he has reported it to the Sheriff's department. JA: OK got it.
