not enough money
Are your crazy? 300,000 dollars for an ass beating. Seems like a nice payday for little work.
Unless they need to layoff officers to foot the bill, it isn't enough. You don't learn a lesson when taxpayers pay your fines for you. The station these jizzbags worked out of, should suffer.
Violating your civil rights, under color of authority, should result in an ass :rap: of those involved.
Like forfeiting part of their pensions once found guilty.
I've taken worse ass beatings than that for free.
I'd cheerfully take that drubbing for 300 large.
So if you're a diabetic, and you know you're low on insulin, what in the fuck are you behind the wheel for? Knew a bad diabetic that'd get all kinds of fucked up when he was low on juice. He'd never drive when low. Sure, boo to the shitty cops that beat him down, though what the fuck is wrong with Mr.Shitty-Pancreas?
I actually agree with you on your last point but I think the 300k was enough cash. These cops should be on trial for felony assault like anyone else. You see one of them run in after he is down and the cops just starts kicking him while saying "stop resisting". I stand up for cops a lot, but beating a man into a seizure is not a good thing.
To be accurate... they didn't beat him into a seizure. They beat him while he was having a diabetic seizure.
$300k is enough cash. The cops seemed to realize within just a couple minutes that he was diabetic and were calling for an ambulance. Hard to know the difference between a guy in insulin shock and some dope fiend at first glance. The guy giving the extra boot kicks to the face while he was down was uncalled for though.
Henderson is where i live and it seems like we have the worst cops as far as this goes
they kill or beat the shit out of someone literally every few months for what seems like no reason and recently the police union put a stop to coroners inquests so there nothing happens in most cases
not long ago there was a guy who drove an ice cream truck, the officers said he had a weapon and was threatening but no weapon was ever found and no witnesses who werent wearing badges agreed with the scenario described by the police
Did the cops come over and seize your dot key?
Yeah this is what I'm getting at. Not everything deserves multimillion dollar settlements. Plus i'm sure the people involved were fired. Why should the people that weren't be punished? Should you pay for your coworker if they fuck up?
The best justice would be to sue the cops that did it for 300 thousand each, and the state for a million if they don't fire the cops. The cops will probably get a metal and a raise, I'm surprised he didn't get 30 years for assaulting a police officer.
Oh shit, they didn't use their mind reading skills to figure out that he was going into insulin shock? Maybe if they would pass a fucking law that insulin users must put a big red sticker on the back of their car, shit like this won't happen. I'm sorry he got roughed up, but it shows a gap in the law.
What the cops knew:
He was swerving.
When the car rolled to the stop, the perp didn't follow orders.
When they attempted to cuff him he resisted.
After he was cuffed he was searched and a bottle of insulin was found.
They called for EMS to help him.
As usual you only get the last part of the video, instead of all the raw video leading up to the arrest. This idiot poorly managed his insulin/sugar intake. As matter of fact, I think he owes these officer's not only an apology, but a bit of gratitude for saving his stupid life.
If you actually believe this shit you're too far gone to attempt to reason with.
You don't read so good, do you?
When the police themselves are not paying the fines, do you think they really give a shit that some guy got $300K of the taxpayers money? They don't give a fuck, it's not their money.
There you go. You start off saying something reasonable and then swerve off into idiocy.
The last part was sarcasm. That Henderson cop shouldn't have kicked the guy in the face.
I do believe it would be a good idea for laws requiring insulin users to put a decal on the back of their vehicles. It could mean a faster response for EMS if they have taken too much insulin and decided to go for a spin. Plus other motorist could call in a weaving insulin user, instead of the usual "holy fuck this guy is drunk and driving like an idiot" call to 911.
Yup, nothing wrong with the cop at 0:41 who booted him in the face while four other cops had him pinned.
I generally defend cops, but that guy should absolutely be fired.
Kicking a guy in the face when FOUR other officers obviously have the guy subdued is perfectly acceptable police work? Does the police conduct manual list "kicking an unarmed perp in the face" as one of the proper steps in an arrest? The only "gap in the law" is the one where a police officer's actions are not judged by the same laws as a civilian would be. If four civilians were making a citizens' arrest of a guy they caught stealing shit, and some guy just came over and started kicking the guy in the face, he would be in trouble.
I forgot to quote VT, but the last part of him apologizing was a poor attempt at Opie-douchiness. I agreed the Henderson cop kicking him was out of line. There were more then enough people to deal with ol' broken pancreas boy.
And yet he still has a job...
I get what motorhead is saying. The guy that kicked him should at least be fired.
