A friend of mine encountered a group of men at a shopping

A friend of mine encountered a group of men at a shopping and they were all watching him and of the said "FBI" when he go close. They did not pull out any credentials so he walked around them keeping a further distance away. As he passed them, one them yelled, "You should call sometime... cause your screwed." When he turned around the group dispersed in different directions.He went to his local police department and was told he had to go the department that has jurisdiction over the mall's location. When he did that he was told that since you was not actually threatened by the group further the incident was not a police matter and just a case of people being jerks. Does this response from the police seem normal? Could this be a case that they could investigate if they wanted to as harassment, disorderly conduct, etc as people going around telling others to call the police would simply create a situation of panic and confusion just as bad as calling in false 911 emergencies.Would this be a completely different situation if the group involved were really the FBI? Thanks for your opinion.

I had a disorderly conduct charge from about 20 years ago

I had a disorderly conduct charge from about 20 years ago and it had been expunged. And the horrible part was there were accusations of me saying the f word which never happened. However moving forward I was charged with child abuse and neglect by leaving my twins boys 16 months old in a car while pottying my daughter and buying a cable to get a picture for her class which is a class 6 felony. Do I need to tell my lawyer about the disorderly conduct since it was 20 years agoyears ago ?

my son in law is 31 yr old black male. A few weeks ago he was arrested for disorderly conduct. An off duty bouncer pushed him out of the bar ( for kicking a small garbage can. Once outside he pushed him into a car and then to the ground. In short the police came, told him he could leave. As he was walking away an officer grabbed him from behind and said "You are under arrest" He (Joe) asked repeatedly way he was under arrest. They (three officers) then tackled him to the groung.JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: And with 3 officers sitting on his back and him yelling I am not resisting they tasered him 3 times and took him to jail. He was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. When he went to court the ast DA had a plea deal of 2 mons in jail and 6 months in jail for resting. This is in WI and has nothing to do with a car?JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: sorry I lost connection. Yes they cant believe they want jail time. But they want thousands of dollars. They have some money for the down payment on a house they could use but I was hoping to find an attorney that would take the case on for a potion of a law suit against the police dep and the DA for molisious prosecution. She has never asked for jail time for a disorderly before. We live in a predominantly white area (90%)JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: We have video and many witnesses to the tasing

Received 2 tickets in VA on Blue Ridge Parkway yesterday.

Received 2 tickets in VA on Blue Ridge Parkway yesterday. First being VA 18.2-308 concealed gun carry without a permit. I had a carry permit that lapsed and I have taken the course to update but not gone to the courthouse yet to get finger printed. The ticket is a class 1 misdemeanor and the hearing is in Federal court in Roanoke in Oct. The other ticket is a disorderly conduct because I was with my boy friend. Do advise me to get a lawyer? Would there possibly be any jail time? I understand the fine could be up to $2500? I have a perfect record to this point
