They are quick on the taser torture these days, aren't they..
 
2010-02-26 02:14:50 AM
The officer is still on-duty on the street working. Phoenix police tell 3TV they are going to let Gilbert finish their investigation before they decide what they are going to do

Gold, folks. Gold.

So, are there any LEOs that do their jobs sober these days?

Castillo told police he drank two 24-ounce cans of beer. Investigators say Castillo claimed he had also taken Ritalin.

Guessing he was a bike cop.
 
2010-02-26 02:30:13 AM
Any cops out there want to confirm this guy is a total jackoff on the job, and his fellow cops were laughing their asses off as they Tased him?

Probably drew lots which one got to work the Taser and which one made the video that's now playing on YouTube...

I don't know what it'll turn up, but I can guarantee you he got paid. Probably in cash, up front.

In their sties with all their backing
They don't care what goes on around

He is back to work. I bet he still has his drivers license. I bet he doesn't have to prove his innocence. Blah, blah, blah.

Ritalin? I know the average cop is mentally 12-years-old, I just didn't think they were physically that immature too.

/on the other hand, this might mean he can't focus long enough to empty the whole clip into that jaywalker, so that's good

That jaywalker was asking for it though.

Well to deal with all the Mormons in Gilbert you pretty much have to drink. Just hope you don't hit any on a bike.

Thank God I get the same consideration from my police crime-solving provides a public service union thug local ticketing agency.

Once the stimulus money runs out, the bullshiat cops are going to go. Good riddance.

I wonder how many people are in jail right now for falling asleep in their cars after driving drunk. Not to mention resisting arrest. Turns out the best way to avoid jail time... is to become a police officer.

Not really a specific response to this topic, but more of a general hope. I wish everyone who truly hated the police would vow to never call them no matter what. And I mean no matter what.

FTA:"I noticed the guy sitting on the ground and when they picked him up he was handcuffed and then they put him on a stretcher and put him in the EMT and took him away."

That's gotta hurt.

I see they pepper sprayed him too, how dare that deaf guy not listen to their instructions. Any disobedience should warrant immediate maximum punishment, no need to wait and find out why.

Agree. Whining little pussies that they are, however, they will call 911 if their neighbour throws dog shiat over the fence. Meh. I get a kick out of reading teh 'tube toughness.

Well. I was recently pulled over for a DUI, three beers within two hours hanging out with some friends at a local college bar. Interestingly, three other random cars were pulled over, at 1:30, near the college campus, just to say hi. The officer became suspicious when I slowed through a flashing yellow light. Also, seemed suspicious when the officer walked up, my window was rolled down and my hands on the window sill. The cop was very creative and lied his ass off in the report.

I performed the roadside tests fine, and became annoyed because it was always another test, and then another. In 6 degree weather, weating a tshirt. I told him that it was ridiculous, and I was arrested. Imagine the most BS example, and that would be this.

My license was automatically taken from me for one year. I have to take DAILY breathalizers, 7 days a week, with penalty of 6 months minimum in jail. I cannot drink as a condition of bond. I have to take urine drug tests, that I have to pay for, monthly. Because I told the cop that I am done taking his tests, it was considered a refusal of testing, which means I will lose my license for one year, guaranteed.

This was two weeks ago. It will continue until my first pre-trial in April. I have no license, cannot leave the state, and again, have to take daily breath tests, at my expense.

I have not seen a judge, have not been convicted, or even read the charges against me. So, tell me again how the whole innocent until proven guilty thing works out?

Colorado is a "implied consent" state, which means that by "accepting" a drivers license, you allow any LEO to take a blood or breath test, at any time. Refusal is interpreted as guilt, and it is a mandatory one year license suspension. No guilt, no innocence. No trial, no we'll wait this out until we get a judge to decide. Taken on the spot. If I had blown a 0.19 BAC, it would be a month to three months suspension, reduced to DWAI, etc. But by refusing to provide evidence that would be used against me, maintaining my silence, and not incriminating myself, I am being dealt the most harshly on the scale. As my attorney that is making bank off this ridiculousness said, you have the right to say no, it will just be an admission of guilt.

I've driven drunk before in my days. I had three beers within 2 hours, and barely had a slight buzz. However, by having the cop put the word refusal in my mouth, I am farked. But I guess where you're from, it's different.

Yeah. If anyone of a particular ethnicity, class, profession, or disability has ever done anything wrong, the entire group should be preemptively tased for officer safety. Besides, how can the officers tell if he's being subservient enough when he don't use his talky-hole to tell them?

Hasn't that always been true?
"After an intense, grueling internal investigation, we have reluctantly concluded that Officer (whoever) acted within the law, and committed no crime. Therefore, all charges against Officer (whoever) have been dropped, and he/she will be returning from paid administrative leave shortly."

I've called the police to report a smashed car + pole combo that no one seemed to know about. That was for the ambulances more than the cops, but there wasn't a separate number to call. Other than that, never called them, never will. Is that close enough?
 
2010-02-26 06:35:42 AM
Phoenix police tell 3TV they are going to let Gilbert finish their investigation before they decide what they are going to do look as if they're investigating the incident until everything blows over, then they'll give Officer Castillo a medal for taking a Tazing and then they'll use the footage from the dash cam for a blooper reel at the annual Christmas party.

FTFM

I never have and never will call the police no matter what. The police aren't here to help anyone, they are here to file a report and take people to jail. They don't care if the person is guilty of anything or not, the pay is the same. If you call the cops they are just as likely to harm you as they are someone who "deserves it", just because they can, and they will get away with it.

I'll use bold caps for anyone who doesn't know already. NOTHING GOOD CAN COME FROM TALKING TO POLICE

I am quite annoyed by people repeatedly saying (and more importantly writing) that police, or anyone else for that matter, were forced to taze him. You are very rarely forced to do anything. You aren't forced to pay bills, it's just advisable to do so given the consequences. Police chose to taze the drunk officer in question. Given that I wasn't there and I don't know, that may have been preferable over wrestling him to the ground or shooting him, but the police certainly weren't forced to do it.

When the police become the sworn enemy of the honest tax-paying citizens, then it is time to disband the local police force and hire a new set of non-incompetent law enforcement officers.

So you admit that you're a repeat drunk driver and you're all butthurt that now you don't have a licence? Why should this bother you? Just drive without it since the other laws obviously don't mean shiat to you, why should that one?
