July 15, 2015—Falsified police reports and regular violations of 4th Amendment rights are par for the course in a police state. But this story is outrageous, because the lawless cop retired in the middle of an investigation in order to collect his lavish pension.
Esmeralda Rossi was in the shower when her daughter told her two cops were at the door. Chandler Police Officer Doug Rose and a partner were there to ask about a prior call regarding an argument with Rossi’s ex-husband. From ABC15:
“Rossi said Rose became very aggressive and she told him to wait at the door so she could go get a cell phone.
‘It made me very uncomfortable,’ Rossi said. ‘So I closed the door. I turn to go into my living room, and I probably get about five steps in; and all of a sudden, I just hear boots running in after me, telling me stop or I’ll arrest you.'”
Rossi’s lawyer Marc Victor called what happened next “disgusting” and “barbaric.” They’re filing a lawsuit against the city of Chandler.
Officer Rose forced Rossi to look him in the eye as he paternalistically lectured her. “Don’t take the attitude with cops, because we don’t play. When a cop shows up, you’re not the one in charge, I don’t care if it is your house. You understand me?”
Rose faced no disciplinary action and will be living off a government check the rest of his life. Chandler taxpayers may have to cover for him twice over.
Victor seems like a good lawyer for such a case. He gave a speech on the police state last year:
