"Since when is it illegal for married couples or otherwise to yell at each other. What was not mentioned in the story was that at no time did I threaten either my wife or the officer. As far as I know there are no laws that prohibit married people from using foul lanuage towards each other when there are no other people present.

It was alleged that I was intoxicated and was blocking a lane of traffic, however they felled to mentioned that our vehicle was parked at the curb lane with the flashers on.

They indicated that I was intoxicated but apparentely not charged with DUI. I would like people who read these types of articles to be careful before they judge.

Unfortunatley I am a African American and my Wife is White. In retrospect I am embarrassed that I subjected my family, friends and my department to this unfortunate incident, however I remain convinced that if the Holland Police Officer was interested in my wife's safety as he claimed the second question out of his mouth after asking what the problem was and being told that my wife and I were arguing, should have been him asking her if she was alright.

Instead he told me I couldn't yell at her which is clearly not illegal in the state of ohio. What I was waiting for was for him to say the two of you should probably get into your vehicle and go home, instead he wanted to show me his power.

I have been involved in law enforcement for thirty years and I know what good police work is, and clearly it didn't occurr that night. Since then all charges have been dropped and the record expunged. I just thought people who read these stories on this site should have the facts.

Whenever there is a rush to judgement, justice is sacrificed."

  1. just curious if the charges were dropped? Why would an expungment be needed? No charges no expungment needed. That doesnt make sense to me?

  2. He is arrogant and scary, must not know anything about verbal and emotional abuse, how many intimate partners are killed roadside after drinking, etc etc etc or he wouldn't feel so victimized and misunderstood. You'd think he'd be humbling himself and saying that since he got away with this completely he will at least study how to do better and how he has failed his wife by being less than a respected and respecting member of their marriage.

    I hope there is someone enlightened in their police department that can see how dangerous this is, get help for Mosley and do some agency wide training.

    No dui? The car was beamed there? They did him a "favor" by taking him in.

    As gigantic - and surely as bellowing baritone - as he is, to get in her face with vulgarites? Lord and she only knows what he said or called her.

    From the book:

    ...Man is made or unmade by himself; in the armory of thought he forges the weapons by which he destroys himself. He also fashions the tools with which he builds for himself heavenly mansions of joy and strength and peace. By the right choice and true application of thought, man ascends to the Divine Perfection; by the abuse and wrong application of thought, he descends below the level of the beast... A MAN ONLY BEGINS TO BE A MAN WHEN HE CEASES TO WHINE AND REVILE, AND COMMENCES TO SEARCH FOR THE HIDDEN JUSTICE WHICH REGULATES HIS LIFE. And as he adapts his mind to that regulating factor, he ceases to accuse others as the cause of his condition, and builds himself up in strong and noble thoughts; ceases to kick against circumstances, but begins to use them as aids to his more rapid progress, and as a means of discovering the hidden powers and possibilities within himself...
