She’s still hurting —

  • Grandmother sues cop who wrongly targeted her home using “Find My” app
  • Denver Police Department vows to train officers on how “Find My” app works.

In January, Colorado police officers confined a 77-year-old grandmother named Ruby Johnson for hours in a squad car without even offering a glass of water during a time when she was due to take her daily medications—why?

Nobody told Johnson what was going on when she opened her front door to a SWAT team assembled on her lawn. Much later, she found out about a stolen truck—reportedly with six guns and an iPhone stashed inside—wrongly believed to be parked in her garage based on no evidence other than her home being located within a wide blue circle drawn by a “Find My” iPhone app. Now she’s suing a Denver cop for conducting what she believes was an illegal search of her home based on what her legal team describes as either an intentionally or recklessly defective application for a search warrant that was “wholly devoid of probable cause.” Because of the allegedly improper raid, the retired US Postal Service worker had to “endure an unreasonable search and seizure, unlawful police confinement, and severe physical and emotional distress.”

*** end quote ***

End qualified immunity.

When the police are stupid, untrained, or just criminal, they need to be punished.

The Judge who signed the warrant should be impeached. Those involved in the warrant should be fired. All the police involved should be disciplined.

Until “we” “We, The Sheeple” get the police under control, there can be no freedom.
