According to the DawsonNews.com website, Sheriff’s Deputy Tony Wooten has been “cleared” of any wrongdoing in his arrest of Nydia Tisdale on August 23rd at Burt’s Pumpkin Farm (and also the secret location of The Clint Bearden Official Training Camp for Former Law Partners of David Ralston on How To Batter Women), located in bucolic Dawsonville, Georgia.
Well, maybe according to “police procedures” and the way the state law as it currently must exist in this state, he is “cleared” by his employer, Sheriff Billy Carlisle, of not doing anything “unlawful.”
But, I would submit to you that when it comes to any LEO (“Law Enforcement Officer”) promulgating the laws of this state, that apparently it is the State of Georgia (“State”), the legal entity represented by the Legislative Branch (and all members of the State House and State Senate therein), the Executive Branch (the Governor, the Lt. Governor, the Secretary of State, the Labor Commissioner, the Attorney General, the Secretary of Agriculture, the State School Superintendent, the members of the Public Service Commission, and all sub-departments, boards and commissions thereof), and the Judicial Branch…it is the State’s current contention that there is NO REQUIREMENT for an LEO to verbally and clearly identify him/herself AS AN LEO before grabbing someone and hauling them off to jail.
Tony Wooten may not have done anything wrong himself…perhaps his defense will be that he was acting as an duly-authorized, “qualified-immunity-protected” agent of the State of Georgia, and the federal district court judge will give him a bye.
But, the main entity responsible for this ordeal is NOT Nydia Tisdale, but the State of Georgia…and how it is the corrupt entity here to allow someone’s right to their exercise of life, liberty and their pursuit of happiness to be violated without due process of law.
Sheriff Carlisle returned Tisdale’s video-camera to her yesterday, and late last night she uploaded a segment of the tape dealing with Wooten grabbing her. As you watch this take place, you will note that Nydia Tisdale is continually ASKING Wooten what his name is, and he snidely continued to refuse to answer….and when he answered, he gleefully told her she was going to jail.
In fact, at some point in the process (around the 18-minute mark), Wooten is heard to say to Tisdale “You know who I am, you saw my badge.” And Tisdale says “No, I didn’t.”
Now, here’s the thing, While Wooten is seen wearing a logoed Dawson County Sheriff’s Office polo shirt…that does not constitute a “badge.”
Because…a logo’d shirt can be created by anyone, yes, even with the official Dawson County Sheriff’s logo on it…and have it NOT be authorized by the Sheriff’s office. Ever heard of knock-offs? Really simple to accomplish when you have the right tools and knowledge (if anyone doubts me, I’ll produce an example for Tisdale’s defense to prove it).
So, since Wooten clearly never identifies himself as an LEO, was Tisdale, as a citizen, supposed to just comply with everything he demanded? Should she have believed him that he had any authority to do so? WHY is it not required in this state that any LEO acting as an Agent of the State must say the following: “MY name is Tony Wooten, I am a Sheriff’s Deputy with the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office, and the owners have instructed me to tell you to stop recording”?
Because if you believe that Tisdale (or, ANY woman) who is accosted by a male merely wearing a LE logoed shirt (and who does not identify himself via his name) should simply slump and not resist, then I would suggest to you that you might be a crazy psychopathic whackjob. Or, perhaps, you are the sitting Governor of the State of Georgia. (In this particular incident, it’s the same thing in the final effect.)
Because, then you are promoting scumbags everywhere to don “official looking LE clothing” (which can be purchased online by non-LEO people) and just go up to any woman they want and grab them and pull them off…and encouraging/training the women of THIS state to immediately comply and not demand to know who the hell is grabbing them and what authority do they have.
Apparently what happened prior to Wooten’s appearance (I am surmising what happened because of Brian Pritchard’s previous discussion of the events about Bearden’s involvement), is that first, Clint Bearden had sat down next to Nydia and whispered whatever he requested her to do, but Nydia was operating under the impression that it was a “public event” and she was allowed to video-record (Note: in a few paragraphs, I will provide the evidence that this event was an event HOSTED by Governor Nathan Deal’s campaign where his campaign publicized it as a “public event.”).
After Bearden didn’t convince her of anything, Wooten was “sent” by someone to get her to stop. You cannot hear either Bearden or Wooten because the video-cam is pointed toward the stage…and that’s all you hear until all of a sudden the camera gets turned to Tisdale’s left and there’s Wooten grabbing her with his meaty paws, and then grabbing her and dragging her off. This happens at the 14:10 minute mark of this video:
