Currently my 33 yo son is incarcerated in Pontotoc county,

Currently my 33 yo son is incarcerated in Pontotoc county, jail in Ada, OKla. He let a friend, Cynthia, drive his car to pick up her friend Gayla. It happened to be a place where his former girlfriend, April, who has a restraining order on him, place of employment. He says he didn't realize that's where his friend was driving too. The girl that had restraining order on him, April Rawlings, called the police. Police came and talked with April Rawlings and she stated she would not press charges, however, officer called in Greg's name and saw he had pending warrants. Greg knowing that Ada police were out to get him, as in the previous year Ada drug and task force attempted to set him up by obtaining a bogus search warrant after doing an illegal search of his outdoor, Oklahoma City private property owned , trash dumpster. In this dumpster they found cut straws that Greg and his step-daughter were using to make tree branches out of. The warrant they obtained also allowed them to search home, body, and any buildings on said property. Police found nothing in dumpster except those cut straws, nothing on him nor in his house or shed. However, they did find a vehicle on property that did not belong to Greg, it had been loaded with guns, and drugs. The vehicle belonged to a Brandon Wilkerson, who is the nephew of an Ada, Okla drug task force agent. I can get that name when I speak with my son. This is one of the warrants for his arrest. We paid an Attorney in Ada $2500 and she dropped the case after doing nothing for Greg.When the police told other officer that Greg had warrant for his arrest they tazed Greg, when Greg came too he told me he was scared for his life as Beale started calling him racial slurs, "get out of the car you white honkey MF". My son is Caucasian, Beale is Black. Again Greg felt as though he needed to protect his life and the syndrome of "fight or flight" came over him. He drove off because he was in fear for his life. Greg was approximately 1-2 blocks down road when the black officer was 1-2 blocks down the road when the black officer Beale, began randomly shooting down a very busy road towards Greg, no warning shots were fired and Greg being unarmed was shot twice, once in the back and once in the hand. Greg surrendered putting his hands in the air and falling out of truck he was unconscious at this time. Greg said that they had put handcuffs on him, witnesses saw police cut Greg's clothes and boots off of him and left the scene with clothes and boots, to return them an hour to an hour and a half later. laying them out at the scene. Now my son, Greg has trafficking charges against him. Do you see their pattern of setting him up? Witnesses also state that while Greg laying on Ground officers kicked Greg and hit him with baton in head and over body.My son goes to court Thursday, September 29, AT 830 am. At this hearing they will offer Greg a deal.We need a lawyer that will stand up for Greg's rights. Has his civil rights been violated? We cannot allowed him to be railroaded just because Ada police do not like the family name.My son Gregory Harvin is a victim here. What can I do to protect him from the brutality of this police force? I am a college student and therefore I have no money to pay for an attorney. I called legal aid and they do not do cases such as this. I've called several attorneys with no response from any of them.Please help, my phone is(###) ###-####or you may e able to go direct to GREg by calling ADa City/county jail at(###) ###-#### We must do something before Thursday when they plan to make an offer.

I put money in privately owned atm machines throughout

i put money in privately owned atm machines throughout western pa. i carry a firearm needless to say and i have a carry permit for it. pittsburgh local news claims it is against the law to carry a firearm "on school property" even with a gun permit. there are atm machines in schools, and at any point anyone could end up on school property without even knowing it while trying to find new atm locations. i'm perfectly fine with leaving my firearm in my car when i have to enter school type locations, but the way the news said it, they are saying the law says the firearm is not allowed on the property period. so if my firearm is in my car, and my car is on school property, how am i supposed to do my job is what i'm trying to find out. i do have a location where there is one of our atm's in a pre-school area, it's a sports center/pre-school. i mean, there are tons of places that are called schools. is the law saying i have to randomly park my car somewhere else (god knows how far from the school) and walk..? your answer has to be crystal clear regarding my question, because i have to be crystal clear on the issue at hand. i mean if i get a flat tire and pull off on school property to change the tire, am i committing a felony..?regards,keith
