Cruz said the man's "activity and demeanor were consistent with someone under the influence of some kind of narcotic."

doesn't "narcotic" come from "narco", to sleep? When did "narcotic" come to mean all drugs rather than just those that are unducing of morpheous (ie: morphene and other opiates)? Why is this tasty tasty weed in front of me considered "narcotic" when it makes me hungry and silly rather than sleepy?

grammatical and/or legal clarification anyone?

[jules]
mmmmm...that IS a tasty tasty bonghit!

No need to be curious, my best friend was at the Final Four wben it was in Minnesota, the police were bored and tried to start a riot, I believe there were 20 people on the corner or so, in anycase, they spayed pepper spray. Now my best friend claims she got some in her eye, but I think she was actually too drunk to remember.

OK, I guess I'm curious too, well, not THAT curious.

2 things. The fark server is down so all the links are acting up. Just click the link, go to the address bar and delete everything up to the second http://www.
That takes fark out of it and just gives you the link. Second thing, doesn't that story sound like a total time traveler?

Cardinal For $2.75 mill? I'll take whatever you want!

I am completely embarrassed at some of these posts. Can you people seriously not figure out how to get the link to work? What is FARK coming to?

Police asked that anyone who knows the man's identity or has information about the case contact them at 238-3821.

I confess... it was me

Wow - screwed up both the South Park and religious references, in just five words. I bow to your eloquent incompetence.

Bad shiat.

Sorry Cardinal, had to raise my rates.....inflation and all ;-)

just for the record, "speed" is not a narcotic.

"He was kneed once in the face but was never hit in the head with a baton, nor were any restraint holds put on his neck..."

The investigator then went on to add that he definately did not fantasize about the man; thinking he resembled Jean Claude Van Damme oh my god you sexy piece of man meat.

I bet the reason he 'died' was because he was on a prolonged physical exertion, breathing heavily with low heart beat because of the drugs.

Then, the officers completely cover his face in pepper spray, making it so that he could not breathe. Combine the need for oxygen, massive exertion and no ability to get air = death.

I bet he was struggling to get air at the end, and the fvck head cops by that time had 'control.'

In other words, they held his head under water.

"climbing poles, yelling to himself and walking in circles. One caller said he jumped on a passing car."

Sounds like a guy I lived next door to until I moved out of Oakland. He was picked up by the police several times but apparently never charged with anything.
 
2003-04-01 02:04:32 AM  
Oh get real. This isn't the cops' fault.

The guy was on drugs. That much is obvious. Which drugs, and what kind of drugs seems to be in question. Its possible he was on a mixture of drugs. To be honest, I don't flipping care what drugs he was on. He used them irresponsibly and got himself killed. If he hadn't been higher than Mary Poppins and running around naked as a jaybird across a flipping highway he would still be around.

From the cops' perspective, you try subduing someone who doesn't feel anything! It's pretty damn hard. He was totally incoherent, a danger to others, couldn't feel pain in any capacity; either emotional or physical.

Maybe he suffocated on Mace. Maybe he overdosed on happy pills. Maybe the knee to the face stabbed the bridge of his nose into his brain. It really doesn't matter either way; it was his own damn fault.
 
2003-04-01 02:05:11 AM  
That's some powerful PCP you guys got down there in Oakland...

I know who this is. This sounds like my 10th grade biology teacher. I always said that guy was going to end up on the wrong end of a police baton.
 
2003-04-01 03:16:05 AM  
Why the hell are cops so farking stupid?? I'll bet my life that if one of those officers shot that guy in the lower leg, the idiot wouldve calmed the fark down. Or at least have been in pain enough to be subdued. Another example of moron cops: There was a man, this was on tv, who was pulled over. There were 3-4, maybe 5 cops there. The man had a crowbar.....a CROWBAR!!! Cops told him to put it down. He was about 15 feet away from them, mind you. He lifted the crowbar, WALKED two steps, and was shot repetedly in the chest. Dead. Now I ask you, was that really farking necessary? Hell no. A shot or two to the legs wouldve put him down. farking cops. Gotta hate em. Power-mad ass-backwards farktards is all they are.

LSD? SPEED? MENTAL ILLNESS?

Come on folks ... has everyone already forgotten about the wonderful effects of PCP!?!

It used to be rather common that people would get totally farked up on PCP, get naked, wander around, and appear invincible if attacked.

I remember a nice story a friend's dad told us (he was an LAPD cop). Someone called the station saying that there was a really huge dude masturbating furiously in the front seat of a car in front of their house. The police arrive and sure enough ... he's naked and masturbating in his car. The try to get his attention and totally fail. They break open the passenger window and yell at him, no response. The guy made some move towards the cops and they pepper sprayed him. The naked guy stopped, got a look on his face like something was amiss, started licking all around his mouth and got out of the car. Further pepperspraying did nothing and it took about six cops to get him totally restrained. I'd hate to wrestle a naked guy.

What they should've done is Tasered the guy. Check out this website:

Go down to the one that says "VIOLENT SUSPECT - PCP user LASD". Great stuff.
