Federal Judge verdict: officers protect rogue colleagues.

http://www.boston.com

The city of Chicago is asking a judge to erase a landmark verdict that found there exists a code of silence in the police department that leads officers to protect rogue colleagues — a legal move that critics say is calculated to deny others suing over alleged police abuse from citing the decision as a precedent.

City officials are seeking to pay Karolina Obrycka $850,000 if a federal judge will overturn last month's jury verdict. (So, of course Karolina is wants the verdict vacated too - very clever)

How to Defeat a Taser Atack- SPIN!

http://halfpasthuman.com

Update: November 27, 2012. Crazy human who works in law enforcement training reports actually trying this with five of his students. Apparently at his school the students are required to take a low-dose taze as component of the training. Out of five students instructed to perform a spin, it worked with four of them...no resulting electrical discharge reached the student. The fifth was 'slow' in turning, and was initially jolted, but it lasted only a micro-second as the student's body was still rotating as she went limp, and that crossed the wiring, shorting out the electricity.

http://www.ksl.com

From the article:

"SALT LAKE CITY — Mounted on the side of a pair of sunglasses is what Salt Lake City Police Chief Chris Burbank says is the future of police work.
