It'll stop when sensible laws are made.... which will be never, because the government makes too much money from seizures and fines.

Until I am proven wrong, I am choosing to believe that this is incident is seperate from anything that happens in Manhattan. Different precincts, different boros, bridges to cross, etc.

Still, not good. [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

The club is the only one of the clubs in NYC that has been fighting the case...and will continue to fight the case from the word outside after the raid. The police came in guns out screaming that they would "blow people's heads off" Another example of a clean game being persecuted in NYC. If you want to show your support you can show up at Brooklyn Central Booking today to see the arraignment and voice your opinion...

To any players that were at the club - The last round of summonses were summarily dismissed. Just plead not guilty. I would also recommend to anyone that was there to call Internal Affairs and make complaints about the conduct of the police at the scene. One of the fastest way to make the cops understand that this will not be tolerated is to hit them in THEIR pockets...a cop who acts like that WILL lose days of pay for those actions and face possible demotion from his unit or rank...
65 Players in that tournament would make quite a stink if all banded together...
I heard similiar stories from the Playstation raid...

If the cops executing the search warrant did in fact threaten to "blow peoples' heads off", then IAD complaints should be lodged. And you're right, it will get their attention in a hurry.
I was at Playstation when it was raided. The cops in that raid acted in a very professional manner.
