I will be giving a talk Tuesday evening at a potluck dinner event at a private house in Cleveland. I will explore the law that carves out from the constitutional arrest protections powers given to officers to make arrest without first getting judicial approval (a warrant).
The routinely violated statute is Tenn. Code Ann. § 40-7-103, grounds for arrest by officer without warrant. Any arrest not on this list are illicit and actionable.
The event is chez Jae Carico, who runs Bradley County Incarcerated Resolutions with other volunteers. They are seeking to reduce the misery of people in that state-certified hellhole. My talk is aimed at reducing intake into the jail — often by officers abusing their authority. Reducing, if you will, the feeder mechanism that is false arrest, abuse of process, due process violation against the rights of the free people in Tennessee.
TIME 5 p.m.
ADDRESS — 2875 Villa Drive, Cleveland, Tenn.
SITUATION — Bring enough food for yourself and, perhaps, two other people
My source material in the talk is the law itself, and my administrative notice to city of Chattanooga and Hamilton County about the construction and requirements of this law. Click these links.
