Abenicio Cordoba-Wilson (Abi) is a young college student, who is pursuing a career as a firefighter.  On 2/24/16 he was pulled over by the Michigan State Police.  The trooper claimed that he stopped him because his license plate light was out.  There was nothing wrong with the light.  It was on and operational.  The trooper then opened his door and stuck his head into the car and started searching.  Abi told the trooper that he does not have permission to search his car, and asked him to stop.  He then started recording.  The trooper threatened to "rip him out of the car by his face".  As Abi was looking for his ID, he was ordered out of the car.  While still looking though his paperwork, the trooper yanked him out of the car and proceeded to cuff him.  While the trooper was trying to cuff him, Abi was trying to lock his phone for fear that the trooper would delete the video.  Once he locked the phone, he submitted and placed his hand behind his back.  He was placed under arrest, and charged with felony resisting and obstructing.  The trooper then searched Abi's car and found NOTHING illegal.

Abi was driving down the road, minding his own business, doing nothing wrong.  Now he if facing a felony, and the end of his career.  This fund is to help Abi get a good lawyer, and fight this.

I had a similar situation about 4 years ago. Same deal the Michigan state police pulled me over for my licence plate "not working" and immediately started searching my car after they said that i seemed like i was drinking. They took me out of the car and cuffed me while they searched me then searched my car saying that they seen a beer bottle in a cooler that i had in my car that was full of water (from the beach the night before) in the first place and second off was completely closed (so how did they see an imaginary beer bottle) then after destroying my car by throwing everything in my car around on the floor they let me go saying that they didn't find anything suspicious. As i got home i looked and my lights were on and working as normal. Its bullshit that they can get away with this. I wish you all the best Abi take them down and get the justice you deserve.

For those who are not familiar with the 4th Amendment of the Constitution I found this from USCourts.gov "The Constitution, through the Fourth Amendment, protects people from unreasonable searches and seizures by the government. The Fourth Amendment, however, is not a guarantee against all searches and seizures, but only those that are deemed unreasonable under the law." To me going through Abi's stuff without probable cause is a total abuse of power.

We can't allow a young man's future to be ruined, when his rights were violated. Things need to change!
