The Auburn Police v. Suzette Fox—A War Story
Police corruption, lies, and abuse in pursuit of their unfounded claim: "That's OUR money
it was DUE to us!"
Suzette Fox had never been arrested in her entire life until she “started a war” with police by suing for the return of her $800 that had been seized from her boyfriend during an arrest. Corrupted by the lure of keeping anything they can seize, police in Auburn, Washington lied, taunted, arrested Sue twice on false charges, and seized all the money in her bank account.  Sue details her struggle to get her money returned, and the events leading up to the police threat to her boyfriend: "You poor sucker – you've got a woman who doesn't have a clue how the game is played. That first arrest was meant as a warning – but she didn't take it. Now she won the $9000 [seized from her bank account], and we're really pissed.”  Read her fascinating story of outrageous police conduct:
