Please, for Heaven's Sake, DON'T CALL THE POLICE (Will Grigg)
Monday November 5th, 2012
Michael Kelly of Clayton, Georgia did what he believed to be his duty as a law-abiding citizen. As a result, he and his wife were arrested and spent two days in jail, and nearly lost custody of their 9-year-old son to the department of child services.
Kelly owns some rental properties. On October 28, he and his family went to inspect and clean a rental home that had been abandoned. After finding several bags of methamphetamine hidden in a wall, Kelly called the police. A few weeks earlier, the tenants had been arrested by federal officials on immigration violations, and Kelly had cooperated when asked to provide information about them.
When the police arrived on October 28, they subjected Kelly and his wife to a lengthy interrogation. One of them threatened to have child protective services abduct their son. The couple was then arrested on charges of tampering with narcotics evidence, and imprisoned for two days until they were able to post $10,000 bail.
Michael Kelly’s family has joined the ever-growing roster of innocent victims who can testify that it is NEVER a good idea to call the police for ANY reason.
