CHP drug arrest

chp.jpgOn Friday, July 4, 2014, a California Highway Patrol (CHP) officer assigned to the Bridgeport Area office came upon a non-injury traffic collision on US-395, north of Bridgeport.  A preliminary investigation revealed, Ms. Nadima Emerson, age 48, of Ridgecrest, California, was driving northbound US-395, north of Bridgeport, in an area commonly referred to as “Huntoon Canyon” with her passenger Mr. Robert Hess, age 53, of Ridgecrest, California.  

For unknown reasons, Ms. Emerson lost control of her 2003 Mercury Sable which traveled off the roadway and collided with a fence.  With the assistance of the Mono County Sheriff’s Department, a probable cause search was conducted and multiple controlled substances were located.  Ultimately, Ms. Emerson and Mr. Hess were arrested for possession of controlled substances and transported to the CHP office for further evaluation.  The vehicle was towed, and both individuals were later booked booked into the Mono County Jail in Bridgeport, California, for felony violations.

    Here’s a good question to Law Enforcement;

    “If you work in Law Enforcement, I have a very important question for you, one which soon may be a matter of life or death, I am sure some people become police officers just so they can boss other people around, but I am going to assume you mean well, and that you want to be one of the good guys, in which case, my question is this;

    Is there anything the politicians could enact into law that you wouldn’t enforce? Is there any order that you would refuse to carry out? OR WILL YOU DO ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING YOUR BOSSES TELL YOU TO??

    In the US Police have already obeyed orders to fine or arrest people for a wide variety of harmless activities, such as dancing at the Jefferson memorial, or having a vegetable garden in their front yard, Police have even gone so far to having violent power military raids on food co-ops and organic farms.

    For decades police have been carry out armed home invasions, forced property confiscations, and other acts of violence against people who aren’t hurting anyone, but who engage in behaviors or habits which law makers have arbitrarily deemed “illegal”.”

    -Josie the outlaw, message to police.

    I have no tolerance for impaired driving…however, in this instance, there is no suggestion of impaired driving. For ‘probable cause’, their car was searched and illegal drugs found. No charges have been pressed for impaired driving (as of yet at least).

    I do not trust LEO and their ‘probable cause’ actions. We all know that they can pretty much find any reason they want to pull someone over, or as in this case, search one’s car.

    I hope their actions were legitimate, that’s all I ask from our LEO.

    What should the police have done in your august opinion trouble? Just leave them alone? Tell us. Single vehicle crash, driver and occupant stoned, just push the car back on the road and wavy bye to them? Tell us trouble. You always know better.

      Deseret Tortoise….Maybe what they should do for punishment is make these (alleged) dopers and DUI drivers either move to the same street “Trouble” lives on,or better yet,next door to his house….that way,he can deal first hand with their troubling and dangerous behavior.

        Wayne- did you know that doctors , lawyers and police have almost the same percentage of drug and alcohol addictions as the rest of us normal folks? Most addicts are only hurting themselves. In my opinion your views on addictions are part of the problem.

        More kids are dying from legal drugs now days than illegal. Other than bagging on me, what’s your solution?

          Trouble….I’m doubting your statement about percentages of addictions,especially with police officers…lawyers,doctors,who knows….still not a reason to make everything legal…and untill it is,no arrests for (alleged) drug users drug,runners,and DUI drivers…and your statement saying “addicts only hurt themselves”…..not true again…maybe thinking that way because of where we all live here…..but not so in the larger areas and bigger cities…good example is Salem,Oregon…never have I seen a city so over-run with meth,pot,heroin,etc…..I lived there for 10 years,and witnessed a lot of crime …..and was a victim too… my home burglarized three times,beat up once by a group of drug dealers thinking I turned them in, held up at gun-point at a job I had,threatened by another saying once he was out of jail he was going to kill me…if you think everyone isn’t affected by drug abuse,may I suggest you visit or move to Salem,Oregon ?

      For one Law Enforcement should stop acting like this current approach against the “war on drugs” is working, it makes me sick to see the WASTED tax payer dollars to punish those with minor pot possession or any possession, for we don’t see the efforts leaving less drugs on the street, we see more and more incidents of people having their constitutional and human rights taken away!

      and in this case these people may have been just tired, thankfully no one innocent or themselves were hurt, but just because they found a substance they are looked at like criminals, when we don’t know if they were victims to a accident… Oh what?? I can’t give a regular people the benefit of the doubt? is that only for celebrities, bankers, politicians and those within law enforcement?

      Please…miss me with your illusion of justice..

      DT, Do you know they were stoned? Stop making unfounded accusations

      It’s not the police DT. It’s the revolving doors of our legal system that is totally tilted to the wealthy that erks me. If these people have almost any money at all, they are all ready out and probably up to their same old ways.. Only the poorest of poor ,with zero dollars stay in jail. These people our not violent, but we lock them up like they are.

      Drug attacks need help and our system never even tries. If a addict needs help I hope they go to a free AA meeting or CA meeting and meet people who really try to help. If really broke go to the Salvation Amy. Hope I answered your question DT.
