Can police execute a search warrant and nor let the occupants of the home know what they are searching for and then threaten the elderly homeowner with death to the others in the home if the occupants do not give up what they were searching for?

Good afternoon. The police can legally enter the home with a search warrant and can search for the items stated within, that they believe to be contained and found in the home. They should not be threatening death on anyone and the occupants do not have to speak with the police or cooperate. If there is illegal police conduct, a motion to suppress could be filed, against any illegally obtained evidence. Also, a complaint can and should be filed with internal affairs, if the conduct of the officers who were present are in violation of police conduct or the law and an attorney should be retained as well.

I do not wish to pay 59 just so I can be told that no-one can help me and my family I'm sorry I am already dissapointed already ��
Criminal Lawyer: CrimDefense, CriminalDefenseAtty replied 4 months ago

No, they are not and it is a violation of your rights and you want to retain an attorney, to represent you and your family. If you are charged and a defendant, you want a criminal defense attorney to be representing you but also a civil rights attorney, to go after the police for their misconduct and abuse.

The receptionist in the police station
Criminal Lawyer: CrimDefense, CriminalDefenseAtty replied 4 months ago

She works for the department, so of course, she may deter you. If you someone was a victim of abuse by the police and excessive force and there was misconduct, you need a civil rights attorney to go after ALL the municipalities involved, to determine the misconduct. There is NO reason to rely on what the receptionist says at the station as she works for them so of course, she is going to try and deter you.

what will the civil rights attorney be able to do exactly
Criminal Lawyer: CrimDefense, CriminalDefenseAtty replied 4 months ago

Sue the department and go after them for the brutality, abuse and violation of your rights. It is civil, so they will sue for damages.

But it was 3 police departments from 3 cities
Criminal Lawyer: CrimDefense, CriminalDefenseAtty replied 4 months ago

Yes and one attorney can go after all three. An attorney is licensed in a state, not county, so they could handle all three if they wanted to

Can the police question a 17 year old without a lawyer or parent being there
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No one was advised of their rights and was just carted off to jail is this legal
Criminal Lawyer: CrimDefense, CriminalDefenseAtty replied 4 months ago

Rights need to be read, when a person is in custody, not free to leave and is being questioned. If they are not read, any statement or admission can be suppressed.

Why are attorneys acting as if they are scared to challenge the police and their corruption? I am having a hard time finding help Smdh I guess I have no Civil rights at all because I can't find help nowhere
Criminal Lawyer: CrimDefense, CriminalDefenseAtty replied 4 months ago
I know it is hard at times and they may feel as though you do not have a case if there was no police misconduct.
