King was watching.

Angry drunk cop yelled at victims, refused to help those he injured

http://www.fox59.com

"Just note this sir, I was the one left to tend to the mayhem your officer created until the help of a nurse, who knelt with me beside Eric as his life ebbed away. I was left alone to kneel by Kurt, and then Mary, as your officer stepped out of his vehicle only to shout 'didn't we hear his siren?' He asked this question, like he was Moses trying to part the red sea, and some how God had failed to move us out of his way."

http://www.salisburypost.com

The resisting-arrest conviction last week of Felicia Gibson has left a lot of people wondering. Can a person be charged with resisting arrest while observing a traffic stop from his or her own front porch?

Sheriff Lee Baca stated about the device, "We believe that technology can help solve problems facing the corrections community, including addressing issues of inmate violence.
