Brickbat: I'll Be Watching You

|

Stacy Lynne knew she was being followed. She kept seeing the same people and the same vehicles everywhere she went. Then she found a GPS tracking device had been hidden on her car. The Larimer County, Colorado, sheriff's office said it placed the device on her car, without a warrant, because officers feared she might kidnap her son in a custody dispute. But officials say they never actually turned the device on.

  1. Then she found a GPS tracking device had been hidden on her car.

    Did she give it back? I wonder what one of those brings on eBay?

    1. She should have crushed it, then dumped it in a bucket of water claiming she thought it was a bomb.

      1. No. She should have just stuck it on an over-the-road semi-truck.

        Or a police car.

  2. officials say they never actually turned the device on.

    See? No harm no foul. It’s like those mock executions where you blindfold someone, kneel them down, demand answers, put a gun to their head and pull the trigger… but its not loaded! Meaning: No Big Deal! People really complain too much. Its a good thing we have such competent law enforcement that they pre-empt potential criminality as well as stop things already in process.

  3. Link to DenverChannel appears to be broken.

    1. It’s dot html not dot htm.

  4. “But officials say they never actually turned the device on.”
    OH, well, that’s okay then.
    By the way, I’ve taken photos of the Larimer County sheriff having sex with some youg woman. I’m not going to post them unless I get real stoned and decide to do it for fun. That’s okay, right?

  5. Stacy Lynne knew she was being followed. She kept seeing the same people and the same vehicles everywhere she went.

    Paranoia can sometimes pay off….

  6. Sorry, what were you saying? I had to make a quick trip out to the garage.
