I was pulled over for speeding and the officer said he paced me. the dash cam shows me passing the officer and the car he was following but has no speed anywhere. He did not use a radar gun. There is no set distance in Illinois or training for pacing. There is also no department policy on pacing. How is this legal. He said I was doing 61 in a 45 but I know this to be a lie as I looked at my speedometer when I went past the cop. the audio has been erased from the dash cam. He had pulled out of a parking lot and almost hit me and I blew my horn at him which I assume made him mad and 30 seconds later I was pulled over

This is a social as well as a political question. I'm not sure it is appropriate for this forum, but I paid my fee and will take my chances. I have been wondering for a couple of years now why the President refuses to speak out against the daily massacre of young blacks in Chicago? He spoke out about Ferguson, Baltimore, etc., etc., but will not demand that the violence stops in his adopted hometown. It can't be a partisan issue can it? If I were President, I would go on national TV and tell the thugs in Chicago that it stops today. If not, the 101st AB will be there to protect the lives and property of innocent people. I think of Ike and JFK sending Federal troops to troubled areas in the South during the Civil Rights days.

$25 TIP - PLEASE KNOW ABOUT JURY NULLIFICATION (HOPEFULLY IN MICHIGAN).I am going to trial in Calhoun County circuit Court, Michigan, for Felony charge of meth possession of 3 grs. My only other record is meth possession in California 12 years ago where I successfully completed a drug diversion program with no conviction.>I am 62 years old with tens of thousands of dollars annual cost for medical eye care>The prosecution does not want to offer me a plea bargain of any kind of probation (section 4711, delayed/deferred sentencing/probation) and wants to put me in prison.>Can a Defense lawyer In Michigan Circuit Court appeal directly to the jury for a jury Nullification>are these statements allowed to be mentioned in defense closing>Too harsh a punishment for non-violent, low level type offender, and we will directly ask for your help (the jury's help) at end of closing>there are other non-prison term probation option (section 7411) that need be offered>There is a HUGE michigan state budget deficit and that its proven-MUCH cheaper to use non-prison probation options with non-violent offenders which help save michigan tax payers their hard earned money.>Ask jury in THIS case, Which is smarter spent money , Michigan spends $70,000 Prison cost (including eye care medical costs) for this offender each year OR fix 7,000 pot holes each year or respond to 150, 9-1-1 calls each year or hire two teach asstn each year that I am in prison>DA has head in the sand and arrogant about how to mis-spend your tax dollars.

Ask jury for their help by requesting that at least one jurist find me Not Guilty creating a hung jury/mistrial to tell the DA they believe The punishment (Prison ) is 1) too harsh and 2) NOT cost effective way to handle THIS case and DA needs to offer a no prison probation type plea bargain sentence.>CAN I MAKE THE CLOSING ARGUMENTS I'M VERY GOOD AT IT

I was found guilty (by jury) of 3 felony counts of embezzlement

I was found guilty (by jury) of 3 felony counts of embezzlement (out of 7) that amounted to total fines of $7,500 for the 3 counts. This persecution arose out of my position as President of a Chamber of Commerce in which the Board of Directors had knowledge of my actions, and oversaw the independent audits (that did not show any discrepancies).The Board railroaded me out without cause and then went back to try and find any thing to justify the dismissal to prevent me from suing them (I had an employment contract) and in their minds, prevent them from being sued by the local government.Can the Board be sued (with any chance of success) or be held culpable or complicit in their actions?
