Cop Threatens To Take Man’s Baby To “Children’s Services” Over Refusal To Show ID

Claims “nervousness” as probable cause for warrantless search, arrest

by Steve Watson | Infowars.com


A police officer in Ohio was caught on video threatening to take away a man’s children and place under CPS oversight because he refused to ID himself during a routine traffic stop.

Andre Stockett was stopped by Sandusky police officer Christopher Denny, who said he believed Stockett to be another person, a suspect with outstanding felony warrants.

At first the officer claimed he stopped Stockett and his girlfriend, Kathryn Said, because the license plate number indicated her driver’s license was expired. When she produced a valid license, the cop changed the story, suggesting that the couple were driving without headlights at dusk. Then the officer began referring to Stockett as “Mr Newell”.

“That’s not me… That’s every black man.” Stockett protested, maintaining that he did not have to identify himself because there was no probable cause for detainment.

When Denny ordered Stockett to step out of the car, he refused saying “I fear for my life”.

The officer then called for a K-9 unit to search outside the car, and claimed a dog had alerted him to the presence of drugs, prompting Stockett to react by saying the officer is “full of sh*t.”

Officer Denny then told the couple that their children would “go to Children’s Services” if they continued to obstruct a police investigation, and that his probable cause was their “nervousness”.

“This baby is not about to be taken from me,” Said told the officer.

Eventually, fearing for their child’s well being, the couple stepped out of the car and were arrested on obstruction charges.

Speaking to the Sandusky Register, the Sandusky police chief claimed that the mention of Children’s Services was not a threat, adding that he “would rather it not be taken as a threat.”

The couple’s attorney, however, stated that it was problematic that the officer suggestd he would take away children in order to “further the interest of the drug task force”. The attorney also questioned the officer’s claim of probable cause. “To establish probable cause, (police) say, ‘Oh, the person’s nervous,’” said attorney Geoff Oglesby. “It appears now this is a script.”

Speaking to reporters, after his release, Stockett said “It was so unprofessional. I tried to compose myself as long as I could … My girl takes the baby out of the car, and they search the car seat. I’m sitting in a police car, and I can’t do nothing about that. He’s two weeks old.”

The couple plan to take the case to trial.

A Handbook for Ranch ManagersA Handbook for Ranch Managers.  In keeping with the “holistic” idea that the land, the livestock, the people and the money should be viewed as a single integrated whole: Part I deals with the management of the natural resources. Part II covers livestock production and Part III deals with the people and the money. Not only would this book make an excellent basic text for a university program in Ranch Management, no professional ranch manager’s reference bookshelf should be without it. It is a comprehensive reference manual for managing the working ranch. The information in the appendices and extensive bibliography alone is worth the price of the book.

Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference ManualPlanned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual. This is the ideal squeal to A Handbook for Ranch Managers.  Although the ecological principles remain the same, what was originally known as “The Savory Grazing Method” now answers to a multitude of different names: ranching for profit, holistic management, managed grazing, mob grazing, management intensive grazing, etc. Land & Livestock International, Inc. uses “Restoration Grazing” under its “Managing the Ranch as a Business” program.” No mater what you call it, this summary and synopsis will guide you step by step through the process and teach you how to use it as it was originally intended. No more excuses for failing to complete your grazing plans.

No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
