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.​​

If you're correct then that means I can bring charges against cops with dash cams.

we the people,who are the real government.the only true constitituional law enforcement dept is the sheriffs dept.and if you think the police are here to protect you think again.and google the name joe lozito and see for yourselfs,what happened to joe on a new york city subway while he was going to work one day.and all of a sudden joe is in a fight for his life against a butcher knife wielding thug with 2 ny city police officer not 25 ft away from this,watching it in a conductors car thru the window,and only came out after joe had the guy on the floor and disarmed.only then did they come out and say to joe o.k. will take it from here.now joe was bleeding from multiple stab wounds.anyway joe went to court and sued the ny police dept for failing to protect him,and do you know what the ny city police dept lawyer told joe and i quote {that the cops have no constitituional duty to protect people}.then what the hell do we need and pay them for.go ahead google the name and see how you would feel knowing your not being protected by the police.and they were no more then 25 ft away and watching this life and death struggle.god bless all legal american veterans/citizens

Good for her...keep up the good work. I agree..keep suing them.

It's already turning around. We fight back and they can never win. Never let up the fight to cancel out the Left ruling self centered scumbag ruling class club. They need to be sucked (democrats) dead dry. Raped of all their possesions and redistrubed back to US citizens. To start w/all known radical lying leftist professors should be waterboarded in order to get the record straight. Once to we have what we need to know, the truth, send them overseas to stay, best the middle east where they seem to know it all. Sorry that tax payers, even those in NY. state have to pay yet she deserved more $$$$$$$. from these nastballs. Time to thin out the pop. of the lefty's, yes, see?.

I am GLAD NY liberals had to pay! They owe America much more! Those liberals keep  the One World Order alive with that horrible building they just built! That World Trade Center was a symbol of the OWO!! It was taken down by fate! It was NOT a symbol of American Liberty!!!!    NO place in USA for OWO symbols. The ONLY symbols we need are The US Flag, Bald Eagle and The US Military symbols!!! The symbols of Freedom and the American Way!

The Obama followers that turn their backs on Liberty and the US Constitution have to be overcome! USA is NO place for Obama hatred and treason!

Any time the government is sued, the money is paid for by the taxpayer.

Most of the liberals are on welfare or have government jobs.  They never pay for anything.

It's the rest of us that pay.

The victims still need to be paid, but, the perpetrators need to go to jail as well.

         I'M GLAD THIS LADY GOT JUSTICE BUT DID ANYONE THINK ? OBAMA MAYBE ASKING SHARPTON AND OTHERS TO DO WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO REPLACE OUR LAW INFORCEMENT ?? WITH OBAMA'S LAW INFORCEMENT ?? WATCH OUT PEOPLE OBAMA MAY BE HEADING MANY OF THE INJUSTICES GOING ON TO REPLACE OUR LAW INFORCEMENT!!

It doesn't make any difference, we will just have to deal with them.

I wish the names of the police officers were posted and we could then harass them, it's obvious they are left wing perverts. 

I think that is a great idea.  It should not be to hard to look up.

The problem is the cop was not acting at the behest of the organization in all probability.  I say sue the bad guy and make him pay the fine personally

Guess they "made an example of her" for other "other right-wingers", didn't they?!

ALERT ALERT

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
