Greenwood, Indiana police responded to a report of a fleeing shoplifter at the Meijer grocery store on State Road 135 and Main Street. They located the suspect, later identified as IMPD Officer Suzanne Binder, 37, walking through a nearby Fazoli’s parking lot.

The cop turned on his lights and orderedBinder to stop, and said he’d release his K9 if she didn’t. According to a police report, she responded, “You can’t do that, it’s a misdemeanor.”

She continued walking in front of the other hero’s car; he ordered her to stop seven times. When he eventually attempted to place her under arrest, she tried to pull away.

The hero took her to the ground and was was finally able to get her in handcuffs. As this was taking place, Binder shouted she was an IMPD officer. She did not have her badge on her at the time, but Greenwood police confirmed she is an officer for IMPD.

Several items were found in her backpack. Meijer loss prevention identified them as items stolen from the store. According to the report, the items included vitamins and sleeping aids, totaling $41 in stolen property.

IMPD says Binder has been employed with them for 14 years. Her pay has been suspended pending termination. They provided the following statement:

At the time of Officer Binder’s arrest, she had no police powers and was not serving in active duty capacity. Officer Binder has been employed with IMPD for 14-years and [is] currently assigned to the Manpower Pool for non-disciplinary reasons. With cooperation from the Greenwood Police Department investigators from IMPD’s Special Investigative Unit are conducting an independent criminal investigation.

After reviewing the probable cause, IMPD Chief Bryan Roach has suspended Officer Binder without pay pending a recommendation of termination to the Police Merit Board.

IMPD says the “Manpower Pool” is a category within the department in which an officer may be temporarily placed while on limited duty status. It could be for an injury, illnesses, or disciplinary reasons.

  1. Libertarian and economic principles are not like the principles of physics. Acting like they are is scientism. Every human situation is subjective. Because each of us values things in a unique personal way.

    In the earlier, successful phase of your career. You had agents and principles taking a profit margin from your production. This profit came from clients.

    Clients are today almost extinct. What you have now are hobbyists. The hobbyists that were formerly your clients are now in a worldwide union that strives to get content from producers for cheap or for free.

    Books and articles are seen as depersonalized commodities which are just out there. The goal is to get your content with as little expenditure as possible. Free being best.

    Imagine if these hobbyists could do this in real life. They could put on VR gear, find your farm and get their own copies of all your eggs, chickens, tools, vehicles they wanted. Without you having anything to say about it.

    Your original property is untouched. The virtual trespassing causes no material harm. But somehow your hard fought property is devalued just the same.

    The first step in the NAP is empathy for all people of every kind. It doesn’t work, excluding certain people who do X. Once you understand people, which is a huge undertaking. Then you can start the more difficult step, of forming a philosophy of how you act and treat all the different types of people.
