Cop blinds woman using JPX pepper spray gun


"She did nothing to warrant him putting a gun -- a pepper-spray Taser gun -- to her forehead and pulling the trigger, causing her right eye to explode and causing severe nerve damage in her left eye to the extent that she's not been declared totally blind," Grimes said. Clark allegedly fired the spray from 12 inches away using a JPX device, which shoots spray at speeds of 400 miles per hour and is supposed to be used at a minimum distance of five feet. Clark's attorney Kasey Castillo released a statement to KTLA saying her client quote: "is remorseful but innocent."

Cops check in at IHOP (Intnt'l. House of Pummeling)


Poorly trained cop beats woman in IHOP after he slaps her and she hits him. There are at least two angles of this event (here's the other: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Pw-bEwEUvI ).
This again comes via a social media site for cops, with lots of comments by other cops. It's pathetic and rife with remarkable quips. The big question is: What are the details of why the cops were called in the first place? The big lesson is: Get out of private property if the owner requests you do so, and run if the cops are called.

An article I wrote for Cop Block (copblock.org) about a recent police shooting in Phoenix where a cop who killed a man was arrested on the testimony of his partner. Police Union bailed shooter out. His partner and accuser is not a union member (Arizona is a 'right to work' state where there are no closed shops, even in government).
