  1. I love how you completely skipped bills of attainder. No bills of attainder or ex post facto laws shall be passed is what it actually says. Bill of attainder equals traffic tickets or any tickets. Article 1 section 9 effectively stops police from writing citations if only people actually knew there rights police could stop policing for profit and actually solve real crimes

  2. Great but misguided attempt. The Legislatures across this nation ignore these provisions routinely by converting all private conduct to “licensed” conduct, thus escaping this concept entirely.

    Ask anyone who is currently being extorted to “pay for” public works programs, “historical preservation,” environmental protection”, ect., costs to enable them to fix their house front step.

    It was not a crime to maintain their home when they bought it. Now the local police show up with “license” evasion criminal complaints when you don’t accept the extortion.

    In my 200 year old retirement community, the police enablement of this game is one major reason for drastic police funding cuts demanded by an angry public.

    The police need to understand that they are being used as cat’s paws for Legislators who can no longer raise taxes.

    Great, great idea to raise the impact on police credibility based on fundamental Constitutional abuse by the government.

  3. Do a new video on the armed security guard in Chicago IL who fights off 2 violent thugs but does not shoot them. 🙄. Its all over the webs… 💻📰📺📹

  4. Unfortunately Tommy most LEO’s in our area take it as a personal attack when they do legal updates. Taught a class last month & the majority still thought filming them in public while in performance of duty was a criminal offense. We’re not talking a basic class full of rookies, average had 8 years in the streets. Also weren’t aware that they needed training and certification for Radar, BA, ECW but they listened to the tax medic self aid class. Even qualifications for firearms is annual 50 rounds of White Box FMJ except carry is 185gr gold dot or 124 Hornady jhp

  5. Take a look at Pittsburgh overriding state Preemptive Law. Philadelphia gets away with it also. Myrtle Beach, SC overruled SC motorcycle laws took several years to get a court decision on ex post facto law. This county considers itself an independent republic still actually in the Condederacy

  6. That we think this is "common sense" is a byproduct of our relatively ethical civilization. Much of the world battles daily to attain this level of reasonableness.

  7. Some states take this a step further and prohibit retroactive application of any law. In layman's terms, they prohibit laws from being applied to cases or events that happened before the law was passed and put into effect.

    For example, in the Missouri Constitution, there's a section that explicitly states that laws cannot be applied retroactively.

    “Ex post facto laws–impairment of contracts–irrevocable privileges.

    Section 13. That no ex post facto law, nor law impairing the obligation of contracts, or retrospective in its operation, or making any irrevocable grant of special privileges or immunities, can be enacted.

    Source: Const. of 1875, Art II, § 15.

    (2013) Constitutional prohibition against enacting a law retrospective in its operation applies only to laws affecting civil rights and remedies and does not apply to criminal statutes. State v. Honeycutt, 421 S.W.3d 410 (Mo.banc).”

    Of course, State of Missouri v. Honeycutt doesn't override the ex post facto provisions in the US Constitution, so basically, State of Missouri v. Honeycutt is very limited in scope and effect. I think it's safe to assume that the ruling was complete bullshit and that it clearly didn't just apply to civil law.

    Thanks for this informative, well-laid-out video, Tommy.

  8. Just a heads up officer401 educational videos are being used in police training I believe the same in yours they will help new recruits and mold the future of law enforcement thank you so much for the video and information

  9. So what if say someone died from complications of their injuries because of what the subject did after the subject was already convicted. So basically someone gets charged and convicted with attempted murder but the victim later dies from that attempted murder for whatever reason. 🤔
