Once a state cop in Arizona threw me on the hood and jammed his .357 into the back of my neck because I not only didn't immediately comply but also stepped forward with my hands in the air to say "What?"

But, you know, it's probably wrong to prejudge and hate people based solely on what they do for a living. Even the po-po. Isn't it?

I SAID STOP BEATING YOURSELF.

In defense of the cops, they probably thought they were just brutalizing a regular black person and didn't realize he was deaf.
 
2014-01-15 09:19:15 AM
Driving while black. That's a beatin'
 
2014-01-15 09:20:09 AM
"I see"...said the blind man.
"No you don't"...said the mute.
"Yes he does"...said the deaf man.
And the man with no legs got up and walked away.
 
2014-01-15 09:39:17 AM
Oh, he's black.  Who would have guessed that.  I'm whiter than sour cream and I can't stand the police, I can't even imagine how a black man feels in this country.

I had a friend who was deaf in one ear and had only 20% hearing in the other ear who got pulled over for speeding.  Naturally, his deaf ear faced the window so when the cop came up and was talking to him, he was trying to use his hand to block the cops flashlight so he could read his lips.  the cop kept saying put down your hands, but then he didn't know what he was saying.

Eventually, the cop got frustrated and was like "What are you, Deaf?" really loud.  That he heard, so he turned his head and pointed to his hearing aid in the other ear and said "YES."

The cop got this really sheepish look and just gave him a warning.

So you provoked an aggressive, Type A authoritarian by bowing up to them, and were surprised at the fact they acted like an aggressive, Type A Authoritarian would.

I think it should be drilled into cops that if someone is not cooperating (and is non-violent) they should go through a checklist to see if that person is physically impaired (blind/deaf) or possibly suffering from a diabetic shock or something. You hear too many of these stories where cops knee-jerk that the person not listening to them starts to get a beatdown. I know that it's probably a small statistic, but I'm sure it would probably avoid situations like this.
 
2014-01-15 10:07:00 AM
This is legal now per California ruling. Why are they investigating?
 
2014-01-15 10:07:56 AM
No mention of a taser...thats odd.

See the post just below yours.  Why?  It's now legal according to a jury in California.
 
2014-01-15 10:14:46 AM
Well, if he didn't want to be beat, he should have listened.

Cops HATE it when their authority is ignored.

/black And deaf? He's lucky to be alive.

I'd never heard the term "profoundly" deaf before.  Can't hear anything below 95 decibels.  So I learned something today at the expense of a victim of police brutality.  It was all worth it.
 
2014-01-15 10:20:47 AM
He must have left his yellow star at home.
 
2014-01-15 10:21:53 AM
Should a deaf guy be driving a car in the first place?  He won't be able to hear a horn or siren.

Not hearing asshats blowing horns is probably a plus.
Sirens are accompanied by flashing lights.   I suspect deaf drivers are more vigilant about those.

Was the victim married, or completely deaf?

The case went to the Oklahoma County District Attorney and any details of this case will have to come from the DA's office.

Reminds me of the old Gene Wilder Richard Pryor movie, Hear No Evil, Say No Evil.

"What, are you farking blind?!"
"YES!  I'm farking blind!!"

Cops should stay out of harms way and stop pulling people over, it's their own fault for voluntarily placing themselves in danger.

NewsChannel 4 learned on Tuesday the two Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers involved, Eric Foster and Kelton Hayes, have been suspended with pay while the investigation into this incident continues.

Paid vacation. Sweet!

I take it you didn't know that you're not supposed to step out of your car until the cop tells you to do so and instead you attempted to provoke him because only a complete moron would think that your actions as described was not an attempt at provoking an aggressive situation.

The deaf person should be more understanding of the police officer's learning disabilities and profound lack of empathy.

Hearing drivers can master the technical challenge of turn signal levers.

Fair is fair.

I could tell this didn't come from Seattle because SPD would have shot the deaf person dead within those seven minutes.

If they're really into getting caught, they could try shoplifting instead of physical violence.

That would require police to stop and think though. You're going to need a ton of extra training for that.

Maybe if he would have said "I'm deaf", when the cop walked up it all would have gone smoother.....

RCMP tasered a man to death in the Vancouver airport.  He wasn't responding to English instructions on account of only speaking Polish.

Bonus: bystander who spoke Polish offered to help and was told to stay out of it

/very tragic
