Legal Answers
Q. During my arrest the superior said thst I was a pos over the phone..can case get thrown out due to officer missconduct
A: The short answer is likely no, an officer being disrespectful and rude usually doesn't create a legal issue causing the case to be dismissed. If the officer's conduct causes it to be less likely that your conduct was criminal then there would be a possibility of dismissal, but unfortunately from the brief facts you outlined above I don't think this officer's conduct had any bearing on your initial arrest.

Please file an official complaint with the officer's department, police departments take citizen complaints very seriously.
Q. My 16YO daughter stole from a makeup store, no cops, banned from the store. Now I have a bill in the mail from a lawyer?
A: Dad of teenage girls here.

If there was a pending criminal court case, I have advised parents pay the civil claim then successfully argue to the prosecutor the criminal case should be dismissed due to the "victim" agreeing to a misdemeanor compromise.

However, your daughter has no open criminal case, so I would advise you not to pay the $312. Ignore the letter. The store could file a civil lawsuit against you if you don't pay but that would be highly unlikely given these facts. The store will likely take no further action if you just ignore the letter.
Q. do police have to identify themselves , when they are coming to ur house for a knock and talk
A: A police officer on a knock and talk generally doesn't have to identify themselves. The officer has the right of say a door-to-door salesman to come up to your door and ask you questions, you can choose to answer them or not. However, there could be issues if you were not free to leave and the officers were trying to circumvent Miranda by labeling a warrantless arrest as a knock and talk.
