can someone tell me if they think my rights were violated. Ex came over on the 23rd at 6:30. wanted to take us out for supper and he'd been out of work for 4 hours and decided to stop by. I told him we had just finished eating. He got angry and asked why we ate so early. I told him that it was cold and dark and blowing snow and the boys had just gotten over the flu. So then he says, well I have the right to take them and if you tried to stop me you could end up in jal until after Christmas because they wouldn't arraign you until after the holiday. I said WTF??? and told him no. By now he was in my face and he pushed me. Iam on crutches with a hurt new and trying to steady myself grabbed out and touched his face. he began to laugh and turned to our older son and said "Did you see her hit me?" and he left. later a cop called and told me that Ex had been there, filed a complaint, can I come in? I told him, it's 9 at night can I do this after the Holiday. He said I need to come in now. So I bundle up kids drag them out. Cop has me write statement of what happened. Looks at it for a minute then sends the kids out of the room. Tells me that they have responded to over 10 calls to our house and it had got to stop. tells me that my story is sketchy, but that Jimm's (called my ex by first name) story flowed smoothly. Then he says you are under arrest. in 10 seconds there is someone there to take my children's coat because my ex is there to pick them up. The cop is reading me my rights and tells me that I will be in jail until after Christmas.So now I am freaking out and they begin to process me. another cop is asking me question like if i have tatoos, and when i tell him yes and where they are a cop from around the corner starts to laugh and says "let's see em...let's see em." Now the other cop is laughing and I'm sitting on the bench thinking that anything can happen to me. so I ask to speak to a supervisor. That made the cop quit laughing, but he tells me that there is no supervisor available. A woman cop comes and pats me down. I sit back down and a little while later I tell the cop that I feel odd and have a history of seizures. the next thing that I am aware of, I'm on the concrete floor surrounded by male cops and I'm having seizure after seizure. they are laughing and poking me with their toes and telling me to quit. Later I realize I'm in an ambulance and I'm still having seizures. The one ems guys asks me what i'm taking and calls me a liar when I tell him the prescriptions I take. He says no,is it meth ,crack, what? we're going to find out so just tell us. The other ems guys shoves a paper in my face and says sign this. I haven't got my glasses and ask him what it is. he says I just need to sign this so they can bill my insurance. We get to the er and the MALE deputy there is just staring at me at telling me to quit faking so i can go home. Then while I'm having another seizure he comes into my cubicle and turn on sports center. So the next time I'm aware I've got this game blaring in my head. Then the nurse comes in and tells him what they are putting in my IV when i ask her what it is she says, medicine.to make you feel better, as if i am 2 years old. Then the deputy comes back over and says the medicine was to see if you are faking. Then the nurse comes back inwith another syringe and starts to put it in my iv. I had already told her i was allergiC to contrast, but she puts it in and I start burning and gasping. I want to adjust myself but the cop says he has to see me at all times.so they won't shut the curtain for privacy. Then the nurse gives me the rest of the medicine that caused the reaction and told me to just get over it. So I'm burning and wheezing again and the nurse says they need a urine sample. Iget 2 drinks of water to facilitate that and then when I'm pulling my pants down, the cop says that they can't close the curtain. Security violation. So I had to pee with the open curtain and him right there. The nurse comes back later with 2 pills. she tells the cop what they are and when I ask she sighs and says potassium. Then she spends 3 minutes talking to the cop about why she thinks my seizures aren't real. At some point they called my ex's father to ask him if I had a history of seizures and he said that I hadn't had one since 1997. It was 2001 but I guess he would know, right? so when the whole thing is over and I've quit having seizure, the 6'2''male cop puts handcuffs on me, 5'7" and walks me throught the lobby past everyone and outside around the building with no coat, no shoes, in the blowing snow with 14 degree weather. Takes me back to the police department. they put me in a holding cell and will not let me make a phone call or anything. My mother in AZ is frantic, she figures out what is going on and is able to get a hold of someone who finally admits that I am there. She calls a bail bond guy and the next day when i am arraigned, they can't figure out why it's a felony charge, drop it to a misdemeanor and set the bail. the bailbond guy that my mom set up has to wait over an hour before they will come get me. They say they are busy. i finally get released and then when I am checking my stuff back out they have stolen 40 dollars from me. tell me to sign the receipt and they will sort it out Wednesday. I won't sign the slip and they finally let me go. on Christmas Eve to an empty house that the Ex has gotten in to. So am I crazy or is this a violation of my rights?
