DHS at Internal Checkpoint Breaks Driver's Window, Seizes All His Stuff & Doesn't Charge Him With Anything (DailyPaul)
Thursday July 11th, 2013
An incredibly odd video is making the rounds on youtube which reveals a violent act by CA Homeland Security Agents, who angrily bashed in a driver's car window and put him in cuffs after he invoked his 5th Amendment right. The video description states the incident took place in Pine Valley, California on May 31, 2013. In response to viewers questions, videographer Robert Trudell states he was cuffed for six hours, had no access to a toilet for nine hours, and had all of his property confiscated. They finally let him go with only his ID and credit cards, and he had to wait 21 days to get his video and camera equipment back.
All this and not even charged with any crime.
Trudell has 4,202 videos on his channel, many of them of internal border checkpoints, including the 20+ minute U.S. Border Patrol Checkpoint. Dateland, AZ Gas & Cameras, No Response to "Are you a US Citizen?"(41,804 views, posted Feb, 15 2013); the one minute condensed version What Country are you a Citizen of? US Border Patrol, No Consent Search, Right to Remain Silent and the 12 minute Border Patrol Checkpoint, Right to Remain Silent, US Route 95 Highway, Yuma, Arizona.
His website, titled "The USA Mexican Border Dance", features many of his videos and photographs. Trudell's car is elaborately riggged with mounted cameras and one photo taken from inside his car captured the dramatic shot of the border patrol busting out his window while he sits in the drivers seat. At first glance it isn't entirely clear what transpired in the window-breaking incident, but Trudell's replies to viewers questions tell more of the story. Trudell responds to one commenter by explaining "I didn't Consent to a Search and Remained Silent (well except for the "Hmm?" to understand his Order.)"
