Beauty Queen Dragged Out of Bed Naked by Deputies
KTLA ^ | July 27, 2012 | KTLA

Posted on 08/09/2012 8:20:31 AM PDT by jaydubya2

LOS ANGELES (KTLA) -- A former beauty queen is suing the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department after she says deputies kicked down the wrong apartment door, pointed guns at her and her fiancee and watched as she got out of bed, naked.

Calenche Ranae Manos, a former Miss Nevada 2007, says in her lawsuit that the incident happened on the night of November 15, 2011.

Manos and her fiancee, Eric Otto Ryder, say deputies had a search warrant for apartment "C" but entered their unit -- clearly marked as apartment "A."

"At that time Ms. Manos was still in bed and was naked," the complaint, obtained by Courthouse News Service, states.

"The sheriff deputies, all of which were male and armed with guns, ordered Ms. Manos to get out of bed and then watched as she attempted to do so," it alleges.

The officers then spent a "significant amount of time" in the apartment before they realized their mistake, according to the complaint.

One of the officers allegedly joked that Manos would have a good story to tell at Thanksgiving.

Manos is seeking damages for negligence, false imprisonment and civil rights violations.

She is also accusing the deputies of sexual harassment.

Nothing wrong in a committed relationship.
Of course there isn't. Just ask all those inner city folks with the 70% illegitimate birth rate.

Ultimately, their souls will be responsible for all of their actions. I also think that things will be changed when the wrong person is terrorized.

Spiderman's uncle Ben used to say that with great power comes great responsibility.

And these yahoos used their power to break into a home and harass the occupants at gunpoint for a sex show.

If we tried something like that, we have a fairly good idea of what would happen to us.

With great irresponsibility should come overwhelming punishment, but unfortunately, in a police state we know the only one who will pay is the taxpayer.

The yahoos responsible likely won't be so inconvenienced.

They are immune from the damage they do...at least on this side of the veil.

“she’s pretty stupid if she didn’t just grab the sheet and wrap it around her while she got up.”

Usually when the cops raid your house and are screaming at you in the middle of the night with guns drawn, one of their primary commands is “put your hands on your head”. Pretty hard to hold a sheet up if you are in that position.

“What is she doing in bed with a man she isn’t married to? Nobody has any shame any more.”

They should have shot her for that. And then kicked the door in of every other residence looking for harlots more like her.

You would think the police would know of some antiquated cohabitation ordinance they could haul both of them in on so they would’nt have to even admit they entered the wrong place.

I did not say, nor did I even suggest that the victim was somehow to blame. That was a conclusion you derived all by yourself.

I did not suggest that you suggested the victim was to blame, kindly do not put words in my mouth. I made the observation that rather than condemn the illegal and unconstitutional actions of rogue law enforcement officers, that SOME individuals felt this was an occasion to render some moral judgment on the victims in this incident. And that IS 'sad'.

It doesn't matter if the couple was unmarried, having an orgy, or sacrificing goats to Baal, the cops were in the wrong and their coffee drinkin' donut-chompin' asses ought to be fired forthwith.

Poor Past. You just picked on the wrong victim; thats all.

I guarantee you that if it were two fags in bed - or one of Holder’s people - or an illegal - or a muzzie - or so on....

You would not have gotten all this anger.

i hate to break it to you but i doubt one in fifty attractive women saves herself for marriage these days

when i was a lad in the 70s it was still a small minority even then who waited till marriage

the PILL killed chastity more than anything

and Roe V Wade sealed the deal

no more fear of pregnancy and if by chance you screw up it can still be “fixed”

all this hoopla about the empowerment of women and they voluntarily gave up the biggest power source they had in the pursuit of material and social “power”

the irony of it

That was one of the most offensive apologies I've seen yet today. Should have said, "I can see how you might have thought that. My comment was a little off the topic of terrorizing police raids against private citizens."

“It’s unfortunate that LEOs are insulated from personal liability for their violations.”

Not in Indiana and Texas! In those liberty-loving states it’s legal to shoot law enforcement to protect yourself from illegal and unwarranted entry. And when the cops use a warrant on the wrong property both states define that action as illegal and unwarranted.

Why does commitment make sex right or wrong? How committed is “committed”?

People recognize this too. That's why she no doubt told the reporters covering this story that the guy in her bed was a "fiance" rather than just a boyfriend. (Of course, they then misspelled the word.) But it's true that the terms "fiancee" and "fiance" are now used to mean something like "sex partner to whom I'm so committed that I remember his/her name the next day."

The word you're groping for is MARRIAGE.

I don't think premarital sex in a committed relationship is bad nor do I think God gives a hoot over it(it's not his main criteria put it that way)

There is a couple in my hometown who have lived together for 30+ years. 4 kids. True soulmates. When you hear of a spouse dying a day after the other spouse this will be them.

The man is a a contractor by profession and has practically rebuilt the local church over the years w/o fanfare nor reward. His "wife" has spent more time volunteering at the church than anyone and is involved in numerous civic activities that help people.

Is God going to punish them for not being married over another "Christian" married couple who while religious and believing in God does not walk the walk? I don't think so.

One night stands/friends with benefits are different and is not what I was referring to.

Got a little nookie from a loving relationship between two people who care for each other before marriage.... I personally don't think God gives a hoot about it but that's me. God is looking how you lead your life, treated others, helped the poor and less fortunate, made an attempt to make the earth a better place....I think he has more important criteria...

How nice of you to weigh in with what you think God thinks?

The Bible clearly disagrees with your humble opinion, but that’s not your problem, right?

Lets look at your nice sweet example of that couple who’ve been shacking up for 30+ years. You don’t think God will punish them? When His Word says otherwise?

What if they were of the same sex? What if it was one man-two wives? You don’t think it’s wrong for two gay people to get “a little nookie from a loving relationship between two people who care for each other before marriage.”?

I think God looks at the total package how we lead our lives on earth and is just, forgiving and REASONABLE enough to know we are not perfect just as we might not like everything 100% about our spouses but look at the total package when we marry them (or not).

BTW premarital sex has been around since the begining of time.

I think you might find this of interest. From "Everyday Life in the 1800s" by Marc McCuctcheon, Chapter 10 Courtship and Marriage, page 205:

"premarital sex: the late 1700s and early 1800s were marked by a notably higher incidence of premarital sex than in later years. Records show, in fact, that around the turn of the century one third of New England brides were already pregnant when they married, despite civil statutes against fornication

Anger.

Thanks, I get it. As you see Past your eyes received a great deal of anger and was personally attacked over his comments in #4.

Why? All he did was post a pro-Christian veiwpoint? And the last time I looked, JR hisself was making it clear this was a pro-God website. But there are many FReepers who feel otherwise. Many will take a comment like #4 and get angry and insulting over it.

Why? Why the anger?
