fta "He's looking directly at me every time he pulls that trigger, and at one point my son says, 'Mom, I'm OK," Johnson's mother, Rose Gonzales, told NBC4. "So at that point, I realize this guy is doing this because I am reacting."

Oh man if there is ever a mom just STFU moment thats it.

"LA County Sheriff's Department officials would not comment on the case except to describe one of the deputies in question as "the best deputy in the division."

The mother should have used her cell phone to record the encounter.  Video tends to keep cops from becoming assholes.

Which reminds me, I still need to work on getting my cell phone to drop video directly to a remote server as cops now days are being trained to grab cell phones.........k/dar

Don't object to people smoking, but those cigarette filters that people drop on the street?  Yeah, those take up to 12 years to bio-degrade, so put your cigarette butts in the trash can, lazy butthead.

/not worth a tasering, however

Best damn deputy in the division.  Got the highest marks in genital taser training.  Always remembers to yell "Stop Resisting!!!" when abusing his power and beating on a minority.

All righty then...I read the article and all I can say is...sear the cop with a cattle brand several times on his taint while "Ode to Joy" is played.

How long until those filters have a little bar code on them, enabling them to be "recycled" for 5 cents a piece (like soda/beer cans in some of our better states)?

That doesn't always work out so well for the officer.

Another cop with a deep seeded inferiority complex on a power trip because some guy wouldn't obey his commands. Another day in LA.

If cops are going to argue that they have an expectation of privacy in a clearly public place, then I'm going to counter that all dashcam and other surveillance footage recorded by cops be thrown out for exactly the same reason.

If you come down hard on perpetrators, they will not re-offend.

This guy will think long and hard about littering again.
 
2014-02-11 09:31:26 AM
Aside from the repugnant behavior of the cops in question, there are a couple of things wrong with this story:

1.  This man's nerve damage notwithstanding, smokers don't drop cigarette butts on the ground "by accident".  99.9% of them are serial litterbugs.

2.  Genital tasering is a perfectly cromulent punishment for any act of littering, especially a smoker throwing a butt on the ground.

Who knows, if you can get second hand smoke problems, maybe you can get second hand shock therapy as well.

Cigarette butts are gross.  A tasering for dropping a cigarette butt seems fair to me.

Even if it doesn't work out for the officer, you've probably already had your phone confiscated or destroyed, and spent god only knows how much in court.

And it's not even just video that's the problem. There have been plenty of reports of people getting in trouble for merely taking stills of the cops -- even accredited photojournalists.

In Seattle a cop with a history of being a reactionary dickhead did mess with a journalist and did get fired over it. Sort of a perfect storm of sh*t for Officer Saudet. Someone linked it up see The Stranger if you're curious, they will be promoting it for years since the journalist is their politics editor.

Didn't I just hear a news story about this photo surveillance system that's now being used here?  Where they just go to archives and track a vehicle used in a crime back to its point of origin?

So it's OK for the authorities to use video surveillance but if a citizen films an officer beating the crap outta somebody that's wiretapping...?

My town just announced the police want to start using Google Glass to help identify people on the street. The lines are really getting blurry here.
