I wish I could fill my blog with the exploits of police officers who are valliantly fighting crime and saving lives. Unfortunately, that would be a very one-sided part of reality.
There are cops, and other people who work for the justice system who abuse the poer and trust bestowed upon them by the public they are supposed to serve. Very recently, a lawsuit was filed by a Californian who claims he was tortured march 2006 in Orange county jail for 20 minutes, which was caught on tape. The torture would include being restrained, beaten and shocked with a tazer.
According to the LA times, they had to taze him because he was resisting, and by resisting they apparently mean being tied to a chair, and convulsing as a result from being tazed.
I have little good to say about these people ...
