[I]"HE has combined with others to subject us to a Jurisdiction foreign to our Constitution, and unacknowledged by our Laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation: FOR protecting them, by a mock Trial, from Punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:"[/I] - From the Declaration of Independence Suit over SWAT team error thrown out By TOM KERTSCHER of the Journal Sentinel staff Last Updated: May 6, 2001 A judge has thrown out a lawsuit filed by a woman who wanted $10,000 for damage and stress she said she suffered when a sheriff's SWAT team mistakenly broke down her door while serving a search warrant. Attorneys had predicted that Jennifer Switalski's chances in court wouldn't be good. But the 27-year-old said Saturday that she plans to try to revive the case. As part of a drug investigation, sheriff's deputies obtained a search warrant for a home in the 300 block of N. 31st St. in the Merrill Park neighborhood on Milwaukee's west side. They showed up at Switalski's duplex about 6:30 a.m. Feb. 2, 1998. No one answered a knock at the door, so the SWAT team smashed it open, handcuffed Switalski's two tenants and threw them to the floor as a crying 2-year-old girl watched. A few minutes later, the deputies realized that the house they had meant to search was three doors to the south. Switalski, who lived in the upstairs unit but wasn't home at the time, filed a claim with the county seeking $10,000 for damage, lost rental income and "lost sleep and peace of mind." After the county rejected the claim, she sued last February in Milwaukee County Circuit Court. The county, which had offered Switalski $1,100 for damage to the door but did not want to pay for other alleged damage, asked Circuit Judge Stanley Miller to throw the case out. [B]He granted the county's request, ruling that the Sheriff's Department has immunity for its actions under the law.[/B] Switalski's lawyer, Stephen Needham of Milwaukee, declined to comment.

thank you cav guy. I'm guessing youre army? Me too.Im a 67T UH-60L black hawk crewchief/gunner. I just get irrate when leo get treated better than the rest of the citizens out of uneducated mislableling.I support leo 110% and and have fought over the cops are assholes on purpose when they pull you over thing a thousand times.Think about this,the cop that pulls you over DOSEN'T KNOW YOU! You could be waiting to kill him,so he is firm and indifferent for his own safety.When do cops get called? ONLY WHEN THERE IS TROUBLE!People don't call the station and say" yeah,could you send a car out,we were grillin out and thought one of the guys might want some of this chicken"its usually something bad,not a pollite call of neighborly kindness.They seldom get the rewards from the community they serve are the easiest to give.Just say thanks for being here one time and see what happens.Probably be in shock and have you checked for drug use,because it just rarely happens.But still they are citizens like the rest of us.As a military person I know I fight for americans that won't fight for me,or the rest of you.thats ok, Iwill fight for the worst,because the best fight with me,or have already fought.Some little punk teenagerasked me with disgust why i was in the army,and I said to him Because you are not.'Nuff said.look after the veterens and the ones still serving.

Imboglio, I've seen your whining about no pussy,and have seen some threads like this implying that you are a cop. Well, if you're really a cop and can't get any pussy from the cop groupies or ho's you roust every night, then you are truly lame and, you should eat your gun.... If I've come in in the middle of a running joke and you aren't serious about having no "girlfriends", well then continue with the joke, and forget I so rudely interrupted. It just seems incongruous...
