Do you want to hear a crazy story? Three University of Virginia female college students were loading their car with water, cookie dough, and ice cream in a grocery store parking lot. The three girls had just left a “Take Back the Night” event and heard stories from survivors of sexual assaults. They were buying the water and treats for a fundraiser the next day.
Seven men approach the girls’ car in the parking lot. Each man was carrying a gun and waving unidentifiable badges in their faces. One man even pulled out his gun and pointed it at the girls.
So the girls acted appropriately and got the heck out of there. The driver, Elizabeth Daly, 20, acted upon her instincts and did the most intelligent thing to protect herself and her friends. She may have bumped one or two of the men with her vehicle in the panic of leaving a seemingly dangerous situation, but at least the girls were now safe. Or so they thought.
They were heading directly to the police station to notify authorities of the episode when they noticed a police car with flashing blue lights pulling them over.
The girls quickly learned that the seven men in the parking lot were actually plainclothes agents of the State who had mistaken the canned water they purchased for beer. Digtriad had the following report:
Daly, who said she has never consumed alcohol, finally stopped when another officer drove up in a police car with lights flashing and sirens blaring.
Prosecutors acknowledged that Daly immediately apologized profusely over the ordeal, but she was still held in jail overnight on three felony charges.”
“Other agents did not join the incident until the subject refused to cooperate,” the ABC said in a statement. “Rather than comply with the officers’ requests, the subject drove off, striking two officers. She was not arrested for possessing bottled water, but for running from police and striking two of them with a vehicle.”
There are so many outrageous instances of injustice in this story. Let’s start at the beginning and work our way through.
Why are seven plainclothes agents of the state Alcoholic Beverage Control patrolling the parking lot of a grocery store inspecting the contents patrons choose to purchase? This not only seems excessive, but also an invasion of privacy and a violation of the Fourth Amendment.
This situation lends the appearance that these agents were patrolling the parking lot looking for excuses to chat with attractive college girls. Your tax dollars at work ladies and gentlemen!
After the women escaped the undercover creeps and were subsequently pulled over down the road, why didn’t the cops let them go?
If they let the girl go and didn’t keep her overnight in jail, then the State would be admitting that their practices were out of line. In fact, the prosecution dropping the felony charges against Elizabeth Daly should confirm the agents’ behavior was inappropriate and dangerous. Unfortunately, this conclusion would require the State to act logically. This is a quality that is not required by entities which enjoy a monopoly in a given industry.
