maybe...there might be a motive were she up to no good...but she wasn't, so why would she flee from the police?

Because people lie about being police in order to rob and/or sexually assault others all the time, and if she's done nothing wrong she would probably think this is what is occurring.

Because seven big people not in uniform late at night were yelling at her, trying to break her car windows, and one pulled a gun. I'd run too. This was an unwarranted police assault on a law abiding citizen (who I predict will be very wealthy soon.)

Who cares? The police acted completely wrong. They should be be disciplined for their stupid act.

To a hammer everything looks like a nail.

Another agency that needs to be abolished.

Cops had better stop playing fast and loose with our citizens. They are losing the respect of the people. Whole segments of our society don't trust cops, and I am referring to the people on the beat all the way up to the Supremes.

What we need is a large, well funded federal team of prosecutors and police officers that are dedicated to investigating and prosecuting only other prosecutors and police officers and agencies, not allowed to deal with any other matters, and updated federal offences that impose much more serious consequences for wrongdoing by police and prosecutors.

And don't forget judges.Specially those who don't follow the law.

Very true.

I'm so proud.

Sounds like a bunch of George Zimmermans got hired by the ABC.

That's a good explanation. I think the occupation attracts people like that, and that's a problem we need to deal with. It probably doesn't help that we have thousands of young Americans kicking in doors around the world who will be coming home soon looking for work.

"In a statement to The Huffington Post, Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control spokesman Kathleen Shaw said that the first agent who approached Daly 'identified herself as a police officer and was displaying her badge' and that 'other agents did not join the incident until the subject refused to cooperate.'

'Rather than comply with the officers' requests, the subject drove off, striking two officers. She was not arrested for possessing bottled water, but for running from police and striking two of them with a vehicle,' Shaw said, adding that the agency is currently reviewing the incident. "

And yet charges were dropped because of pressure through misinformation presented by the student and media.

Must be nice to be able to assault police officers and walk away being cheered on by the misinformed general public. :/

Now it illegal to leave the scene when there are Cops around? Or is it illegal to have some bottled water in the car now? I have seen overzealous cops before.

And you just believe them...why?

"""...spent the night in jail and was charged with eluding police and multiple counts of assaulting an officer -- all of which are felony offenses in Virginia."""
Sooooooo, she didn't spend the night in jail for buying bottled water, she was put there because she fled and assaulted the police.

how do you excuse this? was the cause of this harrassment that she did anything wrong?

You're right.  There is no excuse for her to flee, then assault the police.
10:02 PM on 06/28/2013
The police were acting on probable cause but were mistaken. It is only "harassment" because she was a sorority girl. If she had been a male she would have likely have been shot as fleeing the police and running them over suggest the flight is because you are already wanted in some manner greater than the initial suspicion of having broken a given law. The definition of probable cause? "a reasonable amount of suspicion, supported by circumstances sufficiently strong to justify a prudent and cautious person's belief that certain facts are probably true".

It doesn't say she was busted for buying bottled water, it says she was busted AFTER buying bottled water. Two different things.

But they attempt to lead us to believe that she was arrested for buying bottled water.  That's their way of getting everyone to read their crap.  It's their way of enraging people who are so easily led by the ring in their nose (liberals) to rile against law enforcement.
