Why are police trained to be cowards? This question is raised by the arrest of 20-year-old California resident Melissa Greenfield when she refused to surrender her cell phone during a traffic stop.

Sgt. Jonathan Burke of the Delaware County, Ohio Sheriff?s Office asked Greenfield?s boyfriend for ID at a truck stop. Melissa produced a cell phone and announced that she was quite sensibly making a record of the event ?for legal purposes and our own safety.?

Burke demanded that Greenfield surrender the camera. She properly refused that demand. So the armed stranger abducted Greenfield under color of supposed law by arresting her and charging her with ?obstructing official business and resisting arrest.? She spent three days in jail.

Burke claimed that he feared Greenfield could have been carrying a cell-phone gun. After it became clear that the mysterious object was a common cellphone and not exotic Eastern European spy technology, it was returned to Greenfield, but the video record of the police stop had been erased.

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
