Tasering pregnant woman justified, judges rule

http://www.abc.net.au

A US federal appeals court says three Seattle police officers were justified when they used a stun gun on a pregnant mother who refused to sign a traffic ticket.

Malaika Brooks was driving her son to school in 2004 when she was stopped for exceeding the speed limit.

The officers used a Taser three times when she refused to get out of her car.

A panel of judges ruled 2-1 the officers were justified in using force because Brooks could have picked her keys up off the floor, started the car and driven away.

http://www.courierpostonline.com

Cop Finds Hair in Food; Cook is Arrested, Fired; is charged with Aggravated Assault, Retaliation for a past Official action, food tampering and more. Bailed out for $25,000.
From the Village-Voice, the punchline: The owner, the local PD, and and town manager all asked the Courier-Post not to run the story -- not because it embarrasses them, mind you, but because it "may trigger copycat acts and generally contribute to the discomfort of our officers." (The cop's name has not been released.)

An Open Letter to American Law Enforcement

http://www.ammoland.com

Gentlemen and Ladies of American Law Enforcement,

There is a growing perception among many Americans that we are headed for one of those periodic moments in our history when our reactions to events will redefine who we are as a people, where we are going as a country and who gets to call the shots when we get there — what George H.W. Bush called “that vision thing.”

Alexa Gonzalez, an outgoing 12-year-old who likes to dance and draw, expected a lecture or maybe detention for her doodles earlier this month. Instead, the principal of the Junior High School in Forest Hills, New York, called police, and the seventh-grader was taken across the street to the police precinct.
