More SC Police Intimidation at Broxton Bridge Plantation
The Colleton County Sheriff's Department tries to intimidate members of SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK) during a live pigeon shoot at the Broxton Bridge Plantation outside of Ehrhardt, South Carolina.
PA State Police Misconduct
First, it is important to understand that SHARK has a great deal of respect for good law enforcement personnel. Society could not get along without these dedicated men and women. Because of the importance of GOOD law enforcement, we find those who abuse their authority to be have an extremely corrosive effect on society. In this case, a Pennsylvania State Police Officer behaves in a most peculiar fashion. Is it shocking incompetence, or something far worse? ISSUE UPDATE -- 12/05/08, THE AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES UNION (ACLU) WARNED THE PENNSYLVANIA STATE POLICE THAT THERE WOULD BE COURT ACTION IF THERE WERE FURTHER RIGHTS VIOLATIONS IN CONNECTION WITH THE PUBLIC EASEMENT. SHARK THANKS THE ACLU FOR ITS VERY SIGNIFICANT ASSISTANCE. WE PREDICT THAT THE STATE POLICE WILL NOW SUDDENLY "REMEMBER" WHERE THE PUBLIC EASEMENT HAS BEEN FOR ALL THE YEARS THERE HAVE BEEN PIGEON SHOOTS AND ACCOMPANYING PROTESTS AT THE STRAUSSTOWN KILLING CLUB. Cpl. Winter's conduct should not be taken as being indicative of all PA state police personnel.
Lady Lawyer Owns Bensalem, PA Cop
SHARK agreed to take down this video as part of an agreement with the club that we made to try to limit the number of pigeon shoots held there. The club did not live up to the agreement, so we will start to put some of the videos back up. This one is important, as it shows one way to deal with police trying to intimidate on behalf of a special interest. Cowardly pigeon shooters thought local police could intimidate two ladies. They were so wrong, especially since one of them is a lawyer. Police supervisor Joseph Blickley repeated mis-states the Pennsylvania wiretap law, and allows a person from the club to be involved in a police action. When the women turn the tables on Sgt. Blickley, and he finds himself challenged, he folds.
SHARK President Attacked, Bloodied
SHARK President Steve Hindi is bloodied after a vicious attack from a pigeon shoot supporter whipping a dog lead with a metal clasp. Unfortunately for the cowardly attacker, the attack doesn't stop SHARK from filming the abuse of the pigeon shoot. The attacker and Steve were both charged with fighting. Both were initially convicted. Steve fought his conviction in a new trial and was found "Not Guilty." His assailant did not fight his conviction, and paid a small fine.
