    That's only allowed in Forida and only by private citizens at filling stations.

    Not turning it down enough is the same thing. Testing cops on the night after a riot is behavior reserved for morons, morons sometimes get what they deserve. Life goes on.

In the end, this behavior from the cop is likely to lead to future problems more than what he deemed as loud music.

    We don't get anything. All we get is that someone was arrested for playing music in a care too loudly without getting a ticket. That is ridiculous and a waste of utility, and your attitude about it is similar to that of what has facilitated injustices in previous decades.

    Again, none of us were there. Not turning it down enough is not testing the cops. Testing the cops implies a degree of nefarious intent. Was he testing the cops or was the cop hung up on that blue suburban? I doubt you even listened to the scanner.

    LOL. Yes. People who think that cops acting within their rights after warning someone to do something four times may be understandable, even if they wouldn't have done the same thing - that's the same thing as arresting the Vietnam protestors, right? I'm right there telling Rosa Parks to get to the back of the bus. Your rhetoric is ridiculous. I never said they did the right thing, just that I get why they were possibly frustrated and escalated.

    To loud to most people is an arbitrary thing. I'm sure there is an actual number, but most people aren't going to know that. The cop should have made sure at the first stop that he knew exactly what level was the maximum.

Plenty of people get ticketed right off.

    So I have to disagree on that front. He was warned. Ticket or not.

    And I'll defer the particular importance of this violation, what else APD had to do that night, etc and so on.

    But in the end - he just needed to comply, and the first time.
    I wouldn't necessarily have a problem if you always give the ticket for that right of way. Noise violation is something that I don't think most people know what is legal and what isn't.

    I wasn't listening the whole time, but I don't remember them saying it was 4 times I only remember 2 times. Maybe I just missed that part, but where did you see this.

    I still think this is the wrong way to look at it. Yes that may be true for some people, but they aren't the ones who are going to be causing much trouble. For the people that are going to cause the trouble I think it makes it worse because they see it as the cops being tools and abusing their power.

    Yeah, they probably should have warned him 7 or 8 times since 4 apparently wasn't enough for him to understand what was happening. Stupid cops, you have to give minimum 7 warnings before escalating things.

    Again, play stupid games, win stupid prizes. At the same time, 80 db? Ha. They ran the plates and pulled him over thinking they would find more than a loud stereo.

    Re: Nealy arrested for a noise complaint

    The rag article says that Nealy was cited for the loud music. Does anyone know for a fact if he was cited or taken to the county jail and booked?

    He hasn't been in the inmate inquiry.

    I was curious to see how loud is 80 db.

    The noise from a food blender is 88 db. I hope I'm not upsetting my neighbor when I'm making smoothies in the morning.
