    Cops planting evidence on the Innocent

    A friend went through an ordeal a few months ago. Cops came to his apartment under the guise that they had been tipped that a dangerous criminal was living with him and that the room also doubled up as a 'drug shop'. When my friend denied even having the knowledge of the said criminal and that he had never used drugs all his life, they simple cuffed him and placed a pistol in his hands and also a packet of marijuana then escorted him to the station. He went to court, and due to lack of enough proof my friend was released. What does one do when confronted with an ugly situation like this?

    If you think that this could happen to you then it's best to never talk to police officers before talking to a lawyer. From my understanding, your friend could have helped himself out by telling the officer that he was "busy" and asking whether the officer could come back at a later time.

    Did they have a warrant? I think the best policy is to politely refuse entry to the police unless they can produce a warrant. If they have a warrant, be sure to read it!, sometimes they get the wrong house.

    Hard to say what your friend should of done. Thankfully he's not in jail.

    Good point. My answer was assuming the officer didn't have a warrant.

    At times when these police officers knock the door, you even find yourself confused. Notwithstanding I Have taken your advice of talking to to a layer first before having any discussions with the police. I hope It will work just in case the sad incident presents itself again even to my friend. Thanks.

    According to my friend, they claimed that they had solid information that a suspected criminal was living with him in the apartment. He didn't even ask for the warrant since it was his first time with the cops. But I bet the cops had no warrant, though their visit was a planned one since they could even plant false evidence!

    Oh yeah, police can be intimidating for someone who doesn't have a lot of experience with them.

    Sure they did. Cops recently have kicked in the doors of elderly couples, innocent teenagers, and other people claiming they were acting on a "tip", that a criminal, drug dealer, or some fiend was "operating" out of their apartment. Only it turns out, it was a lie! This happened to a politician in Michigan awhile back. And in the process of the raid, one of his dogs was killed. Damn shame!

    I've of learnt late that preparedness involves even knowing that someone out there can simply step on your Rights. Wonderful point, this is!
