Not so bad as some of the other links but still stupidity on the job that should have been avoided.

PS this seems to be a law enforcement website made for the police to visit. I'm gonna check it out and see how the enforcer/protectors view things and I'm sure it's much different than most regular people of the country do.

I did find something on that police site. I guess those cops that beat the crap out of that guy after he was thrown out of the minivan and was unconscious before the beating even started have been disciplined and one has a 20 yr sentence also. I also recommend reading the comments. Almost every commenter is a police officer and there are a varied view on this between the officers and I think I gained an incite into the way the police think.

Police use Taser on deaf and disabled man







MOBILE, Ala.---- Police in Mobile, Ala., used pepper spray and a Taser on a deaf, mentally disabled who they said wouldn't leave a store's bathroom.
The family of 37-year-old Antonio Love has filed a formal complaint over the incident on Friday.
Police tell the Press-Register of Mobile that officers shot pepper spray under the bathroom door after knocking several times. After forcing the door open, they used the stun gun on Love.
Police spokesman Christopher Levy says police didn't realize Love had a hearing impairment until after he was out of the bathroom. The officers' conduct is under investigation.
The newspaper says the officers attempted to book Love on charges including disorderly conduct, but a magistrate on duty wouldn't accept the charges.

Tasers are an effective tool for any police officer needing to take down a 72-year-old great-grandmother who refuses to sign her speeding ticket. (04:29)

Ugh, at least the magistrate had some sense and integrity.

That would be Jesus Christ.


Although, he already suffered and paid for the sins of taser abuse so i'm unclear what kind of oversight this provides. (I never understood the doctrine of repentance.)

Aw, I miss Dave. From what I've heard, the nice, folksy, honest guy thing wasn't an act.
