Woman Tasered for Opposing Illegal Search

Another woman tasered, another illegal search—just another day in our police state with our compliant neighbors. Here’s the situation… Border checkpoints aren’t just for the border. They are for any road anywhere within a hundred miles of any border. That, in case you didn’t know, means two thirds of the population of the United States can be stopped and questioned for driving on local roads. Supposedly, the only reason they are permitted is to check that a person is not an illegal Read more […]

Did a Tragedy Happen Because of a Pretend Cop?

Many (including Conservatives) are saying a deputy accidentally killed a suspect because he was a pretend cop, but that is a distraction. It happened on April 2, but the video was just released: According to the New York Daily News, The botched encounter was captured on a disturbing video released by police on Friday — nine days after the fatal Tulsa shooting. “He shot me! He shot me, man. Oh, my god. I’m losing my breath,” Eric Harris says as he struggles on the ground following Read more […]

Man Suing Police for Tazing Him, Letting Son Die

A man suing police in the city of Louisiana, Missouri, claims he was prevented from rescuing his step-son, as he perished in a burning house. I don’t get how a police officer’s duty to protect and serve includes the right to stop anyone from entering a burning building and trying to save someone who is dying inside. According to Ryan Miller’s lawsuit, as reported at WGEM.com, Officers Jeffrey Salois and William Harrison prevented Ryan Miller from entering the home to save his stepson Read more […]

Man Risks Life to Stop Robbery; Charged with a Felony

A man confronted an armed robber with nothing more than a Taser gun, so he is being charged with a felony. Arguably, using a Taser in a gunfight was not a smart move. The risks were far too great. However, Jeff Steele is being charged with a crime because even the slight advantage of a Taser gun is too much for the laws in La Crosse, Wisconsin. “I was in the cooler right over here and when I stood up she was standing in the middle of the bar with a small handgun pointed at me,” said Colleen Read more […]

Why Should Cops Have a Right to a Job at Taxpayer Expense?

You don’t have a right to a job; so why should they have one? A Victoria, Texas, police officer was caught on video tasering a seventy-six year old man twice for allegedly having expired inspection sticker. (Do I even need to point out that inspection stickers are about as socially necessary as laws against selling single cigarettes?) The old man plainly thought the young cop was out of his mind because he had temporary tags in the first place. He had time to get the inspection, he was sure. So Read more […]

Cop Fired for Not Using Taser

If you want to understand many police headlines, consider this story of a cop fired. You may remember the story of the man who called the suicide hotline and then got killed by police who were sent to his home. The video would be funny as a dark comedy except that it is real! Well this might give you some insight into how that happened as well as into some other headline news about police departments. It is a good story because it once again proves that there are good cops. Sadly, it Read more […]

Grand Jury: Tazing & Firing 12 Bullets To Kill Unarmed Innocent Is Not Voluntary Manslaughter

Will Griggs describes the killing of Jonathan Ferrell: At about 2:30 a.m. last September 14, Ferrell drove off an entrance road in a suburban neighborhood about 15 miles from Charlotte. (The coroner later found that his blood alcohol content was below the legal limit.) He went to a nearby home and knocked on the door in the hope of using a telephone. A woman inside the house, thinking that the large black man on her doorstep was trying to break into her home, called 911. After Kerrick and another Read more […]

Did L.A. Sherriff’s Deputies Burn a Man’s Genitals With Tasers?

This is from Courthouse News Service, so we’ll have to wait and see what shakes out at trial or in the settlement (assuming a settlement gets reported).  Daniel Johnson, 26, claims the unjustified attack took place on Dec. 6, 2012 at around 9 p.m. after sheriff’s deputies “Abdulfattah” and “Russell” cited his 58-year-old father for littering in front of their home. Johnson claims the cops brutalized him after he asked why his father faced such a steep fine and eight hours of community service, Read more […]

Homeowner Tased For Fighting House Fire

I used to think that people who told stories of “police brutality” must have been anti-cop. I didn’t understand why they would criticize the very people who were there to protect us. Sure, they might have to use brute force sometimes, but that’s only when they’re dealing with an unruly criminal. How naïve I was. These days, it’s too easy to find stories where police have completely over-stepped their bounds as public “protectors” and “servants.” I’m not “anti-cop.” Just Read more […]
