    Obama should make sure minorities and other races are protected, otherwise the Idea of America is in danger.

    American cops can get away with murder easily. They are drunk on power and often trigger happy lunatics.

    I wonder why the Human Rights organisations that are ready to how human rights violation in non Western countries, are remarkably silent when it comes to Western countries human rights abuses.

    You need to gang up like Fergusion for HR org. to take notice. Until then their heads are fixated towards 3rd world countries.

    Indians are generally docile (servile) in nature, that is how they get so "well-integrated" in their adopted lands. Indian Media is not reporting it.

    We have to take in account that Indians do have a habit to poke nose into other mans business. This trait is even severe for Gujarati. In India people bare with the annoying habit but in US its simply not acceptable. You can exercise your right to 2nd amendment against speciousness person in your property.

    The complaint clearly states :
    Mr Patel does not have any business of walking their.
    If he wanted to just walk he should have gone to part or some sport facility.

    From legal stand point police officer war right and followed the protocol. Mr. Patel will get nominal compensation.

    The best explanation Mr. Patel has come up with is :

    OT but in US it must be fun to report anyone to cops on grounds of "suspicious" activity.

    Twitch.TV Gamer Joshua Peters's House Invaded By Armed Police After 'Swatting' Attack

    A video gamer had his house raided by armed police as 60,000 people watched on the internet.

    Joshua Peters, who uses the name Koopatroopa787 on Twitch, makes a living live-streaming his sessions of Clash of Clans and Runescape Online.

    But a session on Thursday was interrupted first with confusion, and then with terror, after 10 armed police from the St Cloud Police Department in Minnesota entered his house after reports a gunman had killed his roommate at the property.

    What they found instead was a very confused, scared man and his family, who were the victims of a potentially deadly prank call.

    How do you know that Mr. Patel and the " man looking in garages" in the received complaint, are the same?

    WHY did you make that assumption?

    Also what does "looking in garages" mean?
    Does it mean being physically present in a garage or just looking into a garage?

    If X was physically present in Y's garage then Y can ask X to leave and if X doesn't comply, then Y can use force IF X is an assailant else he'll have to call the police to remove X.
    That is how I understand the "stand-your-ground" law.

    Anyway, merely looking into garages is not a crime.

    I didn't but police do.
    The caller, who lives in the neighbourhood did not recognize the subject and thought him to be suspicious.
    That he was looking in garages of other peoples house.
    The article clearly states that the caller, who lives in the neighbourhood did not recognize the subject and thought him to be suspicious and so the caller reported to the cops. This is the standard approach in US.
    Cops don't need a reason to ask your ID or ask you what are you doing at that particular location.
    To see this from law enforcement's perspective how do you know he was merely looking into garages and not casing homes for burglary.

    You are the one who said in the earlier post, that Mr. Patel does not have any right of walking there. That means you said it.
    Now I m asking you again: How did you know that the person described in the phone complaint is Mr. Patel, it could very well have been someone else.
    If the caller did not recognize the suspect, then how do you or anybody else know it was Mr. Patel.

    You need to be clear.
    I can look into a garage standing on public property also. It is not a crime.

    :lol:
    Educate yourself.
    Cops do need a reason to ask your ID.
    And unless the person is a threat or is being detained, the person need not reveal his ID.
    Go watch videos on Youtube. There are hundreds of videos were people carrying fully loaded firearms walk freely on roads; when police ask them ID, they refuse and walk away. The police can't do shit.

    :lol:
    I'll ask the question in reverse: How do you know he was not merely looking?

    A professional force doesn't just go around intimidating people who seem suspicious.

    If he wanted to walk he should have walked in park. Wandering around on street is not acceptable in US.
    How did you know that the person described in the phone complaint wasn't Mr. Patel. The police tried to find out and he behaved suspiciously by putting hand in his pocket during police attempt to frisk him.
    If the caller did not recognize the suspect, then how do you or anybody else know it was Mr. Patel.

    In US if you are staring in other person's garage and the person calls cops then the cops can question you about your activities.
    I have seen people calling cops for parked vans an this is a man looking.
    Sir, instead making comments in thin air based on You Tube I request you this. Link.
    Yes police can ask for ID and you can't refuse them else you can be arrested.

    :lol:

    They didn't hence they were asking but Mr. Patel failed to follow protocol when he began putting his hands in his pockets. The police statement clearly states "Officers attempted to pat the subject down and he attempted to pull away. The subject was forced to the ground, which resulted in injury".

    Sir, I advice you study emergency protocols in US before commenting.
