“Let me show you what happens to people who do not listen to the police”

A cop, Chris Webb, allegedly said this to a ten year old right before tasering him for not cleaning a patrol car. At career day at a school.

    Force continuum? There is no force continuum any more! There’s just compliance, or non-compliance.

    It’s not likely.

    Kids parents: “Let our lawyer show you what happens to cops who taser 10 year old kids for no good reason”.

    I bet he got a nice paid vacation… and probably paid lawyer…

    Pardon my French, but why the fuck is this waste of skin not rotting in jail right now!?

    I’m starting to think that “unconscionable provocation” needs to be an absolute defense against charges of assaulting any LEO.

    @Jake: He’s not rotting in jail for the same reason the cop in Canton isn’t. Because thet’re just like us… only better. Their criminal acts only become civil issues. They have union lawyers. They have a big blue wall. We get taser burns, PTSD, threatened, and jack booted.

    This is a travesty. This cop obviously has some deep seeded power and control issues and I really don’t care if he can work them out reasonably. The damage is done. It’s too late, and I’ll bet real money that his coworkers and at least his immediate supervisor was aware of them. Vicarious Liability should abound in this circumstance.

    Having been a cop I will honestly tell you that I was not like that. To my heart and soul I was never capable of that, nor would I tolerate it from another cop in front of me. Rest assured, I would be meeting the threat to a 10 year old citizen with equal or greater force should something like this happen in front of me. This should NEVER be tolerated!!! This is unacceptable in its purist form.

    If the facts as alleged are true, it’s clearly a criminal assault. Too bad the boy’s family are only in it for the money. Perhaps they hope to force a quick settlement and then file charges.

    This is what happens when you allow a group of individuals power over another group, and fail to punish transgressions.

    The New Mexico Department of Public Safety created this monster, and now he is lurching around tazing schoolkids.

    Let’s show him what happens when he drops the soap in the prison shower.

    Think on this —

    Had you or I witnessed this, and intervened with deadly force to prevent the torture of a child, we would now be in jail or dead. The unspoken rule is this: cops are allowed to rob, beat, torture, maim, rape, or kill anyone they like. And if you choose to resist, you will die. If not immediately, then at any point after arrest: Remember the guy who committed suicide in the back of a police car by shooting himself in the temple, even though his hands were cuffed behind his back? Yeah, nice little trick, that one…

    As things go south in this country, American cops will start behaving more like their Brazilian brethren: as unaccountable, corrupt extermination/death squads. The favelas are going to be paradise compared to our cities. At least the Brazilians know what they got and plan accordingly; most Americans still buy that “Support your local law enforcement” bullshit with gusto.
