No, I think the knucklehead has probably been "examined" quite a bit already.

I was hoping that the mugshot was a guy with a hole in his head from a gunshot, but I suppose a good beating will have to do.

Out of curiosity how do they decide bail amount? Can it be any amount regardless of circumstances of the arrested? I'm assuming a more severe crime usually gets a higher bail amount set.

I'm curious about the decision on the $1 mil on this guy.

Here's my take on the story. Dad comes down stairs and catches his daughter on the couch with Kip. Dad gets pissed and chases Kip down the street, catches him, and beats the piss out of him. He calls his cop buddies for backup after he pins Kip down in an uncomfortable position. Dad's cop buddies arrive, sprinkle some spare change on him (ran out of crack because it's the holidays), then arrests him for burglary.

I bet there won't even be an investigation into this cop's behaviour!
 
2009-12-25 07:16:03 PM  
LOL, that biatch got LUMPED up.

Rule of thumb to future criminals... don't EVER break into a house. Aside from a potentially vicious ass whooping, you can get killed and the homeowner won't have to worry about repercussions.

It's usually a combination on severity of the crime and and risk of flight.

He must've broke in on through a second story window after scaling the wall spiderman style. Father was upstairs, daughter was downstairs watching TV and neither heard him come in.

Police said the girl's father, who is a Ferndale police officer, chased the home invader down the street and was able to hold* him until police could arrest him.

*beat on him until he was brain-damaged

more info:

Anderson gave this account of the incident: Around 4:40 a.m. Friday, Dec. 18, Madison Heights police responded to a 911 call from the 28000 block of Alden for a "home invasion in progress." The 19-year-old woman who called told police she'd been watching television in her lower-level bedroom of the quad-level house when she heard footsteps coming down the stairs and looked up to see a strange man staring at her. She said hello and the man backed away from her.

"The quick-thinking female then used her cell phone to call her father, who was sleeping in an upper-level bedroom and is an off-duty Ferndale police officer," Anderson said.

The teen's father jumped out of bed and came downstairs in time to see the suspect leave through the home's back door, he said. The father, who is the homeowner, rushed out the front door "to cut the suspect off and then he gave chase down the street."

The homeowner repeatedly identified himself as a police officer, yet the suspect continued running until the homeowner caught up to him, whereupon the suspect threw money he'd stolen from the home at the officer and then continued trying to flee. The homeowner was able to throw him to the ground after a struggle, during which Kiefer received a black eye and other bruises.

The Cruel and unusual punishment clause applies through the 14th ammendment, but never that excessive bail has.

House is "quad level"... back door was open; daughter was in lower level, father in upper level of house.

This. Scumbag cops in small towns basically run the joint like a military junta. They constantly get pay raises and new vehicles in my small town despite there being no crime and few people. If you dare oppose their pay raises in town hall, they pull you over every time you come into town and routinely come to your house and bust your balls with every little bylaw your breaking that everyone is technically breaking all the time.

So... what do you suggest she do? Yell up the stairs for her dad in front of the robber, who might have been armed and was certainly stronger than her? Yeah, and THEN we'd have a hostage situation on our hands. She quite reasonably waited until the burglar was out of earshot, then called her dad on the phone to alert him, rather than yell, so that the perp wouldn't be aware that he was being called out.

The Stupid: It Burns!

Having worked in a small town in Emergency Services most of my career, I can tell you how wrong this is. Our town depended on Government DOJ and DoHS grant money for anything new - our cops had to purchase and provide their own firearms and ammunition, and the only way we got a new jail was by raising property taxes. The county I worked in was named one of the top 10 in the state of Tennessee for Methamphetamine production and trafficing, yet we only have at most two deputies on for the entire county at night for lack of funding.

I have nothing but respect for every cop I personally know. They're out there every day getting their asses ran off dealing with every idiot under the sun, and a few very smart sociopaths. They do it for the love of their hometown, and the desire to protect it.

For every one small town that has a corrupt, "Good Old Boy" department, there's about 10,000 of them that are struggling to even get new equipment.

/yeah, I know I bit the trollbait, but idiots like this are the reason we have a revolving door in the United States for criminals.

Bail is a luxury, it's basically a guarantee you will return for your court case, nothing to do with your rights, you really have no right to bail. It's not a safe bet that guy will come back. As far as brutality is concerned, how badly would you beat a man who broke into your house and scared the crap out of your daughter?

You should probably read the 8th ammendment.
