depraved indifference to life and liberty of my neighbors and Local Law Enforcement
10 May 2015 | by wtboy_2000See all my reviews

Spoiler alert

The Good Wife's season finale was partially about discovering and defeating the Chicago Police Department's so called "black site" . Where Law Enforcement exceed the lawful boundaries of a "Terry Stop" and forcibly transport a person to a secret location (without consent) for investigative purposes.

Which is a cutting edge topic ripped from the headlines .

But my problem is they won their case by proving the Cops believed they arrested the person and did so without a Miranda Warrant. And not because the cops committed a color of law crime by exceeding the boundaries a lawful "Terry Stop" and did so with malice forethought.

I am of the opinion that a person's right to defend themselves with reasonable force from such an unlawful arrest.
