In Miami Gardens, Store Video Catches Cops in the Act

By Julie Brown

Earl Sampson has been stopped and questioned by Miami Gardens police 258 times in four years.

He’s been searched more than 100 times. And arrested and jailed 56 times.

Despite his long rap sheet, Sampson, 28, has never been convicted of anything more serious than possession of marijuana.

Miami Gardens police have arrested Sampson 62 times for one offense: trespassing.

Almost every citation was issued at the same place: the 207 Quickstop, a convenience store on 207th Street in Miami Gardens.

But Sampson isn’t loitering. He works as a clerk at the Quickstop.

  1. Good GOD! I thought cops were awful scum thugs...but this is just sick!

    No wonder people hate them.

  2. Dont you just love government thugs?

  3. The public hates cops because they fear them. The government hates us because they fear us. You instinctively fear what you hate and hate what you fear.

  4. This kind of stuff is why I detest cops. Whats really irritating and outrageous is that they get away with it, which encourages them to do it more often. LEO's are a privileged class of enforcers with broad authority to violate our rights with impunity. Both major parties are completely whored out to the police unions and police chief associations, which makes them legally/politically invulnerable.

    In my local area (middle class coastal California) a local police union is having a labor dispute with a local city trying to get it's budget under control. The police union law firm, which hires ex cops as private dicks (in every sense of that term), has been harassing city council members who favor outsourcing police work to the county. They file false DUI reports against them and have illegally put GPS trackers on their cars. Naturally, the thug police chief does nothing about this.

    We really do live in a police state already, yet most people seem unaware, like they're zombies or something.

  5. Bizarre story. The article describes so much police behavior which is clearly illegal that I would have once thought the store owner had a slam dunk case. Now, who can guess what will happen? A tragic electrical fire at the convenience store? The Florida cops are among the worst so nothing would surprise me.

  6. Techniques perfected at the margins before mass implementation.
