http://www.guardian.co.uk

A man has died after suffering horrific burns in an incident when he was "Tasered" by a police officer while doused in a flammable liquid. Police were called to the home of 32-year-old Andrew Pimlott in Plymouth following a domestic disturbance and told that he was in the garden and had a can of flammable liquid with him. An officer discharged a Taser and, according to eye witnesses, Pimlott was seen "fully on fire from top to bottom". One of the police officers jumped on him to try to put out the flames.

http://articles.philly.com

As Jones repeated, "I didn't know you were a police officer," Officer Philip Sprague and his partner, Officer Russell Seiberlich, threw her to the ground and handcuffed her, according to the lawsuit. Another cop who came as backup, Officer Chris Manigault, then shot Jones with a stun gun each time she screamed for help - more than seven times - upon Sprague's order, according to the lawsuit.

How to make the police more accountable- play the veteran card

http://www.courier-journal.com

Judging the man to be a homeless panhandler, a police officer asked him to leave, a confrontation ensued, a Taser was drawn, other officers were called and the man was taken down and handcuffed. The man cuffed and threatened with jail was neither homeless nor panhandling. He was a Purple Heart and multiple Bronze Star recipient.

Police Brutality, Robert Leone, follow up.

https://www.facebook.com

There has been no investigation and no politiction speeking out against the police or the coverup.

"This case involves a New York State resident operating his car just across the border from his New York home in Pennsylvania. His name is Robert Leone."

"Half a million views of www.WorseThanRodneyKing.com in less than 90 days. That is the good news. The bad news is we still don't have a federal investigation started and we still don't have a single politician that has publicly condemned the actions of the State Police or condemn the official coverup. NOT ONE! Not even the dog catcher."

Caught in the act of lying

http://www.smh.com.au

A group of Sydney police officers just how great they are. After being called to a bus for a man who was too slow in showing a transit officer (not an actual cop, but a ticket checker essentially) his bus ticket, police decide to use a tazer on a man who made a smart comment. While in court for the incident, the group of police all collaborated and lied about the incident. What they didn't realize was that a passenger on the bus was video taping the whole thing.
