haha, now that's a funny joke.

police assumed she had been drinking and arrested her.

If only there was some kind of test---

At the police station, a doctor confirmed she hadn't been drinking, but still the police tried to pursue her through the courts

Oh for F*CK'S sake.. Sue the shiat out of them.

blame her parents for vaccinating her.

Criminalizing autism? I knew the private prison industry was looking for fresh meat, but that seems a bit excessive.

Agreed. I was willing to be slightly amused till I read that part.

There really ought to be more tests to become a cop. Maybe set the IQ bar just a bit higher, and get rid of the thugs.

Wow, the court wouldn't even admit they made a mistake when dropping the case.

Asshattery to a high degree.

She belongs in an institution. And although prison is an institution, I'm thinking something more likely to keep her sedated and in a position where she can't hurt others.

Well, that hurts their numbers if they just let people go. Gotta get that conviction rate up so your superiors can see you are doing a good job and you can get that promotion. Thats how it works here with the DA's office (winning% means everything) and NYPD (faking compstat numbers so LTs and such can get bumped up)

They do test them. And don't hire them if they score too high.

ABC News reports that the Second Circuit Court of Appeals has dismissed the discrimination claim of an applicant to the New London, Conn., police department who was rejected because he scored too high on an intelligence test. The department's reason for rejecting high-scoring applicants was that they might become bored with police work. The policy, the court found, met the rational-basis test.

I'd link to the ABC article but it's got auto-play video.

That's just a matter of degrees. Aspergers is an autism spectrum disorder.

I heard they had a machine called a breathalyzer that police routinely use to analyze the percentage of alcohol in a person's bloodstream based on how much alcohol is in their breath, and they use it all the time to measure how much alcohol a suspected drunk driver is intoxicated with. I realize that this girl was not driving. But my question is could the police have nonetheless used the breathalyzer on a nondriving person under suspicion of alcohol intoxication? I'm sure test would have worked equally well for a non-motorist.

Or she may have just been shouting and acting crazy and they subdued her. Obviously the drinking charge won't stick, but the disorderly conduct probably will.

Asperger's falls under the ASD (autism spectrum disorder) umbrella, albeit at the high functioning end of the spectrum.

This problem could quickly be solved if the prosecutor and the arresting officers were taken out back and hung. Their replacements will be a bit more careful.

Right... because cops and prosecutors were never ignorant, racist, corrupt or overzealous before the private prison industry came along.

I don't think prisons should be privatized but the authoritarian BS didn't start with them; "criminal justice" has always tended that way. Your attempts to be edgy by attempting to "pull back the curtain on the man pulling the levers" simply exposes you as an ignorant hack.

2013-01-28 01:08:36 AM
Whether or not she had autism is totally irrelevant to this story. She wasn't drunk. They held her for ten hours and then charged her anyway after finding out she wasn't drunk. This would be an appalling and disgusting story if she was just an ordinary person, or if she had diabetes or if she had a brain tumor.

It's that the cops (and the courts) can't admit they made a mistake, is all.

Yeah, because she was so dangerous when she was knocked down and stomped on by someone who actually was drunk.

She didn't. She was crying in the corner after an actual drunk became actually disorderly, then ran off.

At the police station, a doctor confirmed she hadn't been drinking, but still the police tried to pursue her through the courts.

I kept wondering why they didn't just check until I came to this. But the sons of biatches did check, and kept going anyway.

DSM V is reorganizing the diagnoses so all autism spectrum disorders are, well, autism spectrum disorder. Including Asberger's, which will no longer be a separately named diagnosis -- it will be under ASD.

Well, Aspergers isn't autism until DSM5. Then we're all autistic.

Merseyside police said a 25-year-old woman who allegedly attacked Miss Jones was later arrested but not charged due to 'lack of evidence'.

That's my favorite part of the article.

There was a girl from Liverpool
Who was treated by cops like a tool
They said she was drunk
Which was complete bunk
And it was in the end quite cruel

All alone, or in twos,
the ones who really love you
walk up and down outside the wall.

Some hand in hand
And some gathered together in bands. The bleeding hearts and autists
make their stand.

And when they've given you their all
Some stagger and fall*
after all it's not easy
Banging your heart against some mad bugger's wall.

* I'm guessing those are the epileptics

/ or maybe they really are just drunk

It isn't illegal to be intoxicated. Suspecting someone of being intoxicated is not grounds to arrest them unless there is an actual crime being committed that might be linked to the alcohol. For example, disturbing the peace. Disturbing the peace while drunk is usually filed under 'drunk and disorderly conduct' which is a misdemeanor. Slightly worse in terms of penalties than disturbing the peace. In this situation, the police suspected of her of 'drunk and disorderly conduct' and so were legally allowed to see if she had been drinking.

HOWEVER, the fact that they continued to pursue for 'drunk and disorderly conduct' whenever it was found she was not drinking should, in a perfect world, lead to some questions being asked by people that don't have a dog in this race. Not sure who that is or how it works since it's Britain though.

Thanks hrist. I think the expression is to not have a dog in the fight, but I'd say dog racing beats dogfighting any day.
