He should have sued them. That is the only way you can fix stupid
A local Mother here recently sued the local Sheriff's office in a mistaken identity arrest in a stolen identity theft case. In other words, they arrested the victim and treated her to a strip search thinking it was the perpetrator. Her address on her driver's license was that of the victim, of course, because she was the victim
. No effort to call her husband to verify her identity either. The jury awarded her $100,000! As far as I am concerned, that wasn't enough, because there have been reoccurring incidents here of false arrests and searches without warrants. A million dollar law suit usually reminds them who they work for and the oath they took to uphold the constitution.
On a good note, they don't bother the local hams using their mobile radios, they work with them.
