    Default Sheriff Avoids a Landlord Residence Call in Favor of Breaking in to Next-Door Tenant

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Iowa.
    Is it abusive of the law for a Sheriff to agree with the landlord (co-resident in multi-unit compound) of a private residence to never return to a tenants residence, for trespass claims against a tenant (by a homeowner at the end of that public road, who conceals his property from the public instead of marking or protecting it), or any other motive, and then go ahead and saunter past lawfully parked tenant vehicles up the landlord-owned alley and bang on the tenant's back door with the effect of kidnapping the tenant when they open to remind the cop that the behavior is criminal?

    I don't understand your question.

    For starters, asking whether it's "abusive of the law" sounds like it might call for a non-legal opinion. Or are you asking whether it's legal to do this?

    The facts of the situation, as written, make relatively little sense. It's also unlikely that any cops either intended to or actually did "kidnap" anyone.

    Perhaps you could clarify the relevant facts.

    That is impossible to understand. Please just explain what happened. Tell it like a story, then ask questions about it.

    And the video you have linked is more than 5 years old. Is that a video of the incident you are asking about? Who are you in relation to all of this? Or, did you stumble upon the Youtube video and thought you'd post something about it?

    Keep in mind that the dashcam video does NOT present all the facts that are known or believed by the officers in question. Such videos are rarely ever the complete story.
