    Good.

    Miami police ordered to return $19,934 to stripper
    MIAMI, Fl. - There’s a good chance this refund will not be paid in singles.

    The Miami-Dade Police Department was ordered to pay legal bills and return nearly $20,000 in cash to a 20-year-old stripper, The Miami Herald reported.

    The department agreed to pay more than $3,000 in attorney fees to lawyers hired by Ras Cates, 33, and his wife, Lizmixell Batista, who is a stripper at Cheetah Gentleman’s Club in Hallandale Beach.


    The couple was arrested May 25 in Miami after police seized six guns -- including three assault-type rifles -- suspected marijuana oil and several bottles of codeine that did not have valid prescriptions, the Herald reported.

    Police also confiscated $19,934 in bills that were found in Batista’s purse. According to body-camera footage obtained by the Herald, Batista explained the reason she was carrying so much cash.

    "I was supposed to go the bank to deposit the money. We got bills to pay, sweetie," she said.

    The couple was charged with armed drug dealing and other felony charges, but defense attorneys challenged the arrest and prosecutors dropped the case, the Herald reported.

    Cates legally owned the weapons and had a valid concealed-weapons permit. Body-camera footage showed that Miami-Dade police did not receive permission to search Cates’ trunk, the newspaper reported.

    "Search of the trunk was illegal," prosecutor Johnathan Nobile wrote in a memo.

    The Miami-Dade police department's legal bureau asked a civil court judge to allow the police to keep the money, arguing that they believed it was drug money, the Herald reported. But at the hearing, a fellow stripper named Haley Heath testified that her friend, earned "significant cash tips" at the Cheetah club.

    “I felt that the glitter on the seized cash was compelling evidence, but apparently the police department disagreed," defense attorney Jude Faccidomo told the Herald.

    Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Rodney Smith ruled there was no probable cause for the seizure and ordered the money returned to the couple, the newspaper reported.

    Some judge is gettin' some free lap dances!

    Well, maybe 1.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Ya , these cops are obviously lying . They know when they see stacks of ones with glitter that smell of perfume and sweet titty sweat that these were hard earned dollars . No other way a cop is going to see some tits than at the titty bar. I am happy they did not get to keep any of your money.

    They actually gave her $20,034. When they went to return the $19,034, five officers gave her a $20 tip.

    Assault-type rifles? Obviously they are violent criminals, if they have assault-type rifles
