    Default Tased Motorist to CBP Agent: 'What the Fuck Is Wrong With You?'

    So I think we are going to have a distinct divide when it comes to this video and story. One group will say, "Doesn't matter whether police are violating your rights or not, be respectful and do what they say and you won't get screwed with," and the other group will say, "Objecting to police violating your rights is not a legitimate reason to be assaulted and tased."

    Jessica Cooke, 21, who just got a degree in law enforcement leadership from SUNY Canton had recently applied for a job as an agent with US Customs and Border Patrol (CPB) when she was detained by two CPB agents despite not crossing the US Border.

    The CPB has authority to conduct immigration checkpoints within 100 miles of the US border (where 2/3 of the US population lives), and they did so here. For reasons that are unclear and the CPB agents have difficulty saying (she appeared nervous?), Cooke was detained and drug-sniffing dogs where called in.

    Cooke, noticeably annoyed knowing what CPB needs in order to detain someone, was quite vocal telling the agents that they had no right to hold her against her will if they didn't have reasonable suspicion. CPB told her she was free to leave--but her car had to stay. Cooke replied that if the dogs weren't here soon or that they couldn't explain why she was being held against her will, she was leaving or calling the police.

    The agent told her that while she could leave, her car couldn't. The agent told her he would spike her tires if she tried to leave. After telling her she was free to leave, the agent then told her she had to stand 'there,' not 'here.' When she refused, this exchange occurred:

    CBP agent: I'm going to tell you one more time, and then I'm going to move you.

    Cooke: If you touch me, I will sue your ass. Do you understand me?

    CBP agent: Go for it.

    Cooke: Touch me then.

    CBP agent: Move over there.

    Cooke: Go ahead. Touch me.

    CBP agent: I'm telling you to move over there.

    The agent then physically moved her. When she resisted, he tased her.

    The government, though, is looking into filing assault charges--against Cooke.

    Maybe there's a better, more urgent way to spend tax dollars? Like to prevent real terrorists from launching new attacks? I donno, just sayin.

    You'd think. But not when the drug war is so profitable for law-enforcement.

    Assuming there wasn't some missing detail leading up to this, it seems like any charges against her will be dropped, and she'll get some amount of settlement for violating her civil rights.

    Why would they allow her to leave, but essentially seize her car?

    So she couldn't make off with any illicit goods?

    Shocking video (literally).

    Obviously unless there is more to this story her rights were violated. Although I still don't get people recording everything. It's like they want to make trouble and see what happens. I would think she'd get some dough.

    Why is she a stupid bitch? Asking why you're being detained, is not looking for trouble. Filming, is also not looking for trouble.

    The way I see it...they said she was "nervous" looking. That's enough reason, to ask someone, to get out of their car...while they investigate? That's it?

    Cooperation is a two-way street. Law enforcement really needs to get that memo.
