Are you calling a guy a badass because his tattoos are like a sword? And are you calling a girl a bimbo because her tattoos are like a knife? Is this a “hilarious” situation? Is this really “fascinating”? I’m just saying.. are people really making this shit up? What the fuck?
I am also curious to know what other military types do get tattoos, so if anyone has any tips please share.
The American Civil Liberties Union, the public interest group that has sued to defend a state law requiring police to obtain warrants before searching a driver’s phone, lost another appeal, this time to an appellate court in Virginia.
The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals has affirmed the lower-court ruling, but will have to reconsider the case. If appeals courts do not reach an agreement, the law will not only stand, but may be enforced in other states.
The ACLU filed the challenge in the case of two Virginia residents, one of them a teenager, who were searched by police following an altercation during which the officer suspected them of gang affiliation. The teenager, whose phone was seized at the scene, said in court papers that he was at his father’s house when a police officer, who had stopped two other cars for speeding, called him over and “asked how my phone was doing for his ‘exhibition.'” The teen gave the officer his phone. Later the officer came back and explained that he and his partner had “suspected the phone for some reason” and that they were going to search it.
At a hearing a few days later, the officer testified that there were “some things we need to look at” before doing such a search, but that he would let the police search it for him anyway. At the trial, an appellate court judge ruled that the officer was not required to tell them of the evidence they would discover — only to tell them when they came across it, which had happened during the confrontation. The ACLU argued that this amounted to a failure to disclose what was in the car.
Judge Paul Borman agreed with the ACLU that the trial court’s reasoning was flawed, but agreed that the officers did “not abuse” their discretion. He wrote in order to dismiss the lawsuit that “a proper explanation of the basis for the search would require some explanation of how the officers got hold of the phone while searching the car.”
The ACLU is appealing those findings to the Sixth Circuit, as well as the federal district court,
