"According to the lawsuit, on August 21, 2012, Gross drove his brother, Carl Gross Sr., to see his granddaughter at an Allentown hair salon. "
Well we're tasing here in Allentown cause there's nothing else really going down. And because you look like your brother you're going to paaaaaayaaaaayaayyaaaaaaayaaayy-ay.And we're tasing here in Allentown.
Interceptor1: He was 76 years old. How dangerous could he be? I'm getting tired of seeing cops that are five foot nothing and armed to the teeth because they lack confidence.
XMark: What's the deal with police officers tasing anyone after they're already handcuffed? Shouldn't there be some kind of rule against that? I would think that tasers should only be used when the officer is actually being threatened by the suspect, not just as something to make an already-restrained person stop moving.
Makh: The police were trying to conduct their business and they found him resistor.
limboslam: $50k? Oh no, no, no, no...... $500k. Minimum.
justinsmith354: A FEW BAD APPLES! A FEW BAD APPLES!
LavenderWolf: Police are scum.If they'd stop proving me right, I'd stop saying it.
Mr. Eugenides: Makh: The police were trying to conduct their business and they found him resistor.Was he a serial resistor or a parallel resistor? Because the serial resistors have a much higher resistance than the parallel ones so you have to up the voltage.
Captain Horatio Mindblower: If you apologize or release the victim, you're admitting wrongdoing. You have to arrest him. You can drop the charges later (in fact, you have to), but you must act like the violence was perpetrated in your role as official shiatkicker of the state, as opposed to a little side action for your own amusement.A cop in Philadelphia was arrested this week for, essentially, choosing the wrong answer to subby's quiz.
doglover: Interceptor1: He was 76 years old. How dangerous could he be? I'm getting tired of seeing cops that are five foot nothing and armed to the teeth because they lack confidence.I'm tired of seeing cops who don't understand their duty is to die to protect the fabric of society.I, as a private citizen, have the prerogative to completely misread someone's actions and escalate a potentially non-violent situation all the way to lethal force in the event that I believe they are going for a weapon or are already holding one. In the worst case scenario, I will be arraigned and ideally tried by a jury of 12 my peers who are also private citizens. There is no SOP for a private citizen. If you think you might be in danger, you can do whatever you want, basically. George Zimmerman type incidents? That's okay because you've got two untrained thugs butting heads and the cops mop it up.But police are trained. They're supposed to be the thin blue line between order and chaos. And often, the difference between good and evil means good has to take some hits and not fire back. That's the difference between the riot police and the riot itself. If the cops are free to attack and retaliate with whatever force they want, they're just a street gang.
bunner: MMPPI tests are administered to cops, EMTs and recidivist criminals. The results are expressed in a graph. Cops and criminals are essentially the same people. Cops are just a *little* smarter than criminals on the on the IQ curve. And that is the only difference in the graph. Put this on your fridge.
Cerebral Ballsy: If you want to see cops change, you're gonna have to start offering more money.
