I will if it comes to it. It seems that when the officers found out I had all intentions of suing they have backed off. My problem now is the city itself. I have to go before the Planning and Zoning for a Conditional Use Permit for the birds. I have retained an attorney for that issue also because the chief of police gave me citation for having wildlife in city limits. Pretty ironic since I've had them here for over 20 years and now, all of a sudden, it is a concern? I'll nail him too! Man my attorneys must love the money I send to their bank account! LOL
Any word on any progress? It seems that you have been pegged and they are out to get you. As an attorney and former police officer, I see how this might have happened. Most law enforcement officers are good people without a chip on their shoulder. However, there are the select few that are real jerks. Get in an argument with one, and he suddenly becomes hell bent on doing you in, even if he is wrong. I've known and worked with a few of these hotheads.
The problem is that they try long and hard to find a violation, and will bend the law to suit their purposes so that they can get you. It seems like that happened here. In the long run, the system usually prevails, the correct laws are applied, and your rights are preserved, but you still have to go through the long and arduous (and expensive) process of protecting your rights. The officer is usually flagged and doesn't last long with the department, but that doesn't save you the time or expense.
