1 p.m. 52A02-1309-CR-808. Lake County Government Complex Auditorium. On August 25, 2012, animal control officers in Miami County received a report that two dogs owned by Maddox Macy bit one of Macy’s neighbors.  The next morning, Officer Roger Bowland accompanied two animal control officers to Macy’s residence.  Macy was uncooperative.  Despite being asked to calm down, Macy was loud and demanded answers from the officers.  Officer Bowland threatened to arrest Macy if she did not calm down.
Officer Bowland then walked across the street to the bite victim’s house.  Macy followed down the sidewalk and began “making a scene.”  Officer Bowland arrested Macy and placed her in the front seat of his police car.  Macy opened the door of the car and continued to yell.  Officer Bowland forced Macy back into the car, but Macy refused to put her feet inside the door.  Officer Bowland had to pick up Macy’s feet and place them inside the car. Macy was convicted of disorderly conduct and resisting law enforcement.  Macy appeals her conviction for resisting law enforcement, arguing she did not forcibly resist.

  1. Based on several recent Indy Star articles, I would agree that being a case worker would be really hard. You would see the worst of humanity on a daily basis; and when things go wrong guess who gets blamed??!! Not biological parent!! Best of luck to those who entered that line of work.

  2. I was looking through some of your blog posts on this internet site and I conceive this web site is rattling informative ! Keep on posting . dfkcfdkdgbekdffe

  3. Don't believe me, listen to Pacino: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6bC9w9cH-M

  4. Law school is social control the goal to produce a social product. As such it began after the Revolution and has nearly ruined us to this day: "“Scarcely any political question arises in the United States which is not resolved, sooner or later, into a judicial question. Hence all parties are obliged to borrow, in their daily controversies, the ideas, and even the language, peculiar to judicial proceedings. As most public men [i.e., politicians] are, or have been, legal practitioners, they introduce the customs and technicalities of their profession into the management of public affairs. The jury extends this habitude to all classes. The language of the law thus becomes, in some measure, a vulgar tongue; the spirit of the law, which is produced in the schools and courts of justice, gradually penetrates beyond their walls into the bosom of society, where it descends to the lowest classes, so that at last the whole people contract the habits and the tastes of the judicial magistrate.” ? Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

  5. Attorney? Really? Or is it former attorney? Status with the Ind St Ct? Status with federal court, with SCOTUS? This is a legal newspaper, or should I look elsewhere?
