Gun Toting Tea Party mom wins $1.12M for false prosecution

A Long Island mother of three arrested for taking pictures of an Air National Guard base in the Hamptons ​– ​while ​armed to the teeth with a licensed assault rifle in her car — has been awarded ​$1.12 million​ by a federal jury over her false prosecution by Suffolk County authorities.

​The Central Islip ​jury ​on Thursday sided with Nancy Genovese, 58, in a 2010 lawsuit she filed against Suffolk County​, its​ Sheriff’s Office and other parties, ​claiming she was ​only ​arrested during the July 2009 incident because she belonged to the Tea Party.

Genovese was arrested while taking pictures of a decorative helicopter in front of the Gabreski Airport Air National Guard base in Westhampton Beach for a “Support Our Troops” website. She was charged with criminal trespass and spent four days in jail before the charges were dropped.

Southhampton cops searched her and found a legally owned rifle that she was transporting from a nearby rifle range. She contends a deputy sheriff arrived on the scene later and said to her, “I bet you are one of those Tea Party people.” When Genovese said she’s gone to Tea Party rallies, he allegedly said, “You’re a real right-winger, aren’t you?” and “You are a ‘Teabagger’” and then added that she’d be arrested for terrorism to make an example of other “right wingers.”

“Ms. Genovese was subjected to a level of abuse because [authorities] did not share the same political views as she did and saw this as an excuse to deny her even the most basic civil rights,” her lawyer Frederick Brewington said.​​

Love it!   Very good news!

Way to go Tea Party Patriots!!  Long live the Tea Party!!

I hope the "officer" involved was sued directly so the money had to come from him, no the union, the dept., or outside interests. That is the only way they will truly pay attention, oh, and some jail time would probably help the cause, too!

I don't see where your political affiliation has anything to do with the correct police procedure the cops are suppose to adhere to. This is a case of a smart a$$ cop acting like a macho bully and wanting to make a name for himself. Well I see he did get attention and it resulted in a law suit payoff. They aren't suppose to voice their personal opinions or likes and dislikes. The Sheriff was out of line. This is not the first time I've heard of a cop or Sheriff being the judge and jury. That's not their job. A person's motives should be up to the court to decide, and not before hand like this Sheriff did. So many of them think they have a degree in law. This is just another case of the substandard help we are getting now days. But excellent help for the Communist movement.

I'm glad he DID make his thoughts know, otherwise this woman would have been bullied without recompense. We they think like this, then it is better that we know it.

Congratulations to Ms. Genovese and her attorney, Mr. Brewton! I hope this case makes an example for other Liberals and anti-Constitutional rights officials at every level!

Wish there was a way to sue, not the government, but individual cops for these greivious violations of rights.

These are the type of cop that the protests chants should target, not law abiding cops.
What do we want, "Dead Gestapo cops"!

The cops in this story are morons and need to be out of a job

SICK: Leprosy On The Rise In Los Angeles 

Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.

California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.

Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.

Medscape reported:

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).

Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.

Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.

Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
