Well she probably coulda expected it until she opened her big pay day eating mouth to say something stupid. So since she was arrested, I'd say she was the idiotic one. I bet she was even more pissed when they didnt serve a pay day with her Jail meal.

And they probably didn't even have cable on the tv in the jail cell.

Ahh, so suing someone because of one's own stupidity isn't egregious? I thought we would have moved beyond morons putting hot coffee between their leg-lawsuits by now.

Just show me the law that says she can be arrested for saying to a cop "Go fight some real crime."  
   
 I can assure that I will have no problems showing you where you can't be arrested without probable cause.
 
 Was her speech stupid?  Probably. Disrespectful and rude? absoutely.  Against the law?  not a chance.  
 
 Was her eating in the station a violation?  Probably, though she was finishing up because the same cop told her too so the cop excused it in the first instance and all she did was abide.  But was her offense an arrestible offense?  Not in this country.  
 
 A civil suit here would not be ridiculous.  I value my freedoms more than anything else I have.  This arrest was moronic and egotistical move by a police officer, and while she may have violated a civic code, this cop likely violated a constitutional ammendment, if not 2 or 3.

Didn't she refuse to show her ID? I'll bet there's some Patriot Act-based law that says if a Metro cop asks to see your ID you'd better show it or risk being arrested as a terrorist.
 
 I can see it on FoxNews now:  "PayDay Terrorist strikes on Metro:  Are Your Children Safe?"
 
 Bottom line:  They're both idiots.

I think refusing to show your ID falls under the catch all of "refusing to follow an officer's command" or some such thing.  Of course, this predates the Patriot Act.

I'll go with this law which predates the Patriot Act as well:
 
 Amendment IV
 
 The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
 
 What's the probable cause here?  "Why don't you go do some real police work?" - I'm guessing no.

We suspended that one.  Didn't you get the memo?

I heard somewhere that it went with Brennan to his grave, but I thought that was all just a vicious rumor.

In addition to the Nevada case, I believe that there were a couple of cases in California and one in Arizona that defended the practice of requiring people to show ID when police request it.
 
 Things will be much easier after we steal...oops...I mean win... the election.  We are working to mandate the implantation of subdermal national identification chips that will allow the police to scan you with a UPC gun from a distance of 75 meters.  The chips will interface with the Diebold® and the Nestle© databases to cross-reference any and all previous confectionary consumption violations.
