Victim thought cop was robber, faces 25 years

http://www.ajc.com

Thomas, a DeKalb County merchant who at that moment was a victim of crime, said he believed the officer to be part of a robbing crew with which he had just exchanged gunfire. Roach, who had just left work in his Chevy Tahoe, heard the gunfire and drew his .40-caliber Smith & Wesson on a fleeing Thomas, the only man he saw with a gun.

Depressed man calls wrong hotline, has apartment trashed

http://www.courthousenews.com

A depressed Army reservist who made a phone call for help says dozens of police responded by surrounding his home and arresting him, vandalizing and searching his place without a warrant, seizing his dog and killing his tropical fish. Matthew Corrigan, who lives alone with his dog, sued the District of Columbia in D.C. Federal Court. Confronted with a massive police presence after his plea for help, Corrigan says, he denied officers permission to enter his house, but they entered and trashed it anyway, saying, "I don't have time to play this constitutional bullshit!"

Man tazed by park ranger for off-leash dogs, no ID

http://www.sfgate.com

A Montara man walking two lapdogs off leash was hit with an electric-shock gun by a National Park Service ranger after allegedly giving a false name and trying to walk away, authorities said Monday.

Hesterberg, who said he didn't have identification with him, allegedly gave the ranger a false name, Levitt said.

Rancho Corral de Tierra has long been an off-leash walking spot for local dog owners. In December, the area became part of the national park system, which requires that all dogs be on a leash, Levitt said.

The ranger was trying to educate residents of the rule, Levitt said.

FBI arrests 4 Connecticut Cops - the end of police abuse?

http://www.cbsnews.com

"Federal officials say the officers denied Latino residents and their advocates the right to be free of unreasonable searches and seizures, the right to not be arrested and detained without probable cause and the right to not be arrested on false and misleading evidence."

Wow, it looks like they've finally identified the bad apples that were spoiling the whole bunch! Isn't it exciting? By this time next week, the police will be back to protecting and serving the public once more. Phew! I was worried that "we" were becomming a police state - but this article has set my mind at ease.

FL Man's Pepper Spray Death Raises Questions About Jail Abuse

http://www.huffingtonpost.com

When he left his home in Ohio to visit his brother in Fort Myers, Fla. in March 2009, Nick Christie was already breaking down, physically and mentally. His wife Joyce was concerned about his well-being. Rightly so. By the end of the month, the grandfather of two, whose only prior run-in with the law was a DUI in the 1980s, would be strapped to a restraining chair in the Lee County, Fla. jail, coated with a thick layer of pepper spray, smothered in a "spit hood," then finally taken to a Florida hospital where, two days later, he would die.

http://www.youtube.com

A Metro passenger used his cell phone's video camera to capture a confrontation between a woman and two LA County sheriff's deputies on a bus in Bellflower. The over aggressive sheriff's punch, to a young woman's face wasn't even necessary. Then the dirty sheriff, wants to take the cell phone, of the soldier who recorded it.
