redmid17: Cataholic: redmid17: jst3p: redmid17: MycroftHolmes: jshine: Looks like she had good reason to run from the cops - they're dangerous thugs with no self control and probably will not be held accountable for their actions.

If a suspect is unarmed and not fighting back and you put her in the hospital, you should be tried for assault - badge or no.

But if a suspect is resisting arrest, using force to control the suspect is appropriate.  So, go back and read the article and realize why you are wrong.

They didn't need to tackle her in the first place. They were responding to her responding to their escalation of the situation.

Again, she escalated the situation.

Yes she was an idiot for walking away, and the police got as heavy handed as they could. That's not something the police should be doing. If they can't or won't adequately judge a threat to themselves or the community, they shouldn't be trusted with a badge and a gun.

Anyone who runs from the police is a threat to the community.

Yes, 100% of the time, they are a danger.

2013 was the safest year for cops since the 1950s. Assaults and murders have gone way down, especially over the last 20 years. They don't need to avoid being shot. People aren't out to kill cops like it's going out of style.

Try reading this part. You know, the part with the details:

...Wright admits she ran from officers.

"I was scared because of how he got out of the car. He didn't just walk out, he jumped out of the car and started chasing me, so my first instinct was to run," she said.

Wright also said she did resist officers once she was knocked to the ground. She said she was trying to get her arms free to protect herself.

The cops were in the car, talking to them. The officers "tried to detain them" by jumping out of the car and rushing towards them. She panicked and ran. They then "pounced on her, then started kicking her and pulling her hair."  And dared try to get her arms free to protect herself.


Derrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrp! Try some reading and timeline comprehension there, late-comer.

First:

"When they tried to go back to pick up a bag and a phone they left behind, they claim the officers tried to detain them."

Next: 

"Wright said she continued walking away from the officers, who then allegedly used force to stop her."

Her friends said they watched as officers used force to subdue her.  "(The officer) ran full force at her and she ran from him."

Nezorf: jst3p: Nezorf: They would not have needed to run after her and tackle her if she had not walked away from the cops.
Sounds kinda unreasonable doesn't it

Not at all. She was fleeing after being detained. That's an arresting.

Yep and they could have easily:
-arrested her and ticketed her without tackling. 
-told her to turn around and she might have.
-said "If you don't stop, I will tackle you and arrest you"
-convinced her to come back and told her "I could arrest you for that"
-walked up to her and talked to her
-walked towards her while saying "YOU NEED TO COME BACK"
-said "i have to arrest you for fleeing, but if you come nicely I won't have to tackle you and charge you with resisting arrest"
-said "Stop and come back right now or you will be going to jail tonight"
-said "you are detained, you are committing a crime by walking away and I will arrest you"
-said "I told you to stay, you are going to be arrested if you continue"

Lots of options that don't include tackling someone, but they skipped all of those and escalated the situation.

Well I guess we are just going to disagree on this because a police officer running and tackling someone for walking away without trying any other methods is completely unreasonable in my books.


All of the onus on the officers to give her 27 chances to not continue making stupid decisions rather than simply going with "she farked up from the get-go and it's her own damn fault."

There isn't going to be any agreeance here because you believe the police should shoulder all of the responsibility all of the time, even when they made multiple attempts to de-escalate the situation already.

Girl walks away? They should have told her she was detained. Told her she's detained? Should have told her again. Told her again? Say please this time. Said please but she keeps going? Pace her so as not to frighten her into running and plead with her to stop - it might work this time. Didn't work this time? Step in front of her (without picking up the pace so as to frighten her as eluded to before). She didn't stop? Grab her arm. She yanks away? Grab it again, say please this time. Still not working? fark it, let her go and get the info from her friends because we don't want to unncessarily escalate this.

Which party is being unreasonable again?

As to your second point, yeah, there is no chance that kids would just give a fake name or address, or that the kid would later deny being there period.

And it's not liable to make someone fall to the ground and get injuries bad enough to keep her overnight in a hospital


Really?  So if I am running away from you, and you run behind me and grab my shoulder, and I fall to the street, it isn't liable to cause injuries that could require hospitilization?  I am going to have to disagree with that.  Unless you are pretty well trained in how to fall safely, if someone upsets your balance while you are on a full, panicked run, and you fall in the street, it is very foreseeable that you are going to have injuries.


You have created all these other scenarios and hypotheticals, most of which aren't better than what the police actually did.  But you have never answered the fundamental question, which is this-Is chasing after a girl who is leaving a group that you have ordered to stay a reasonable thing to do, given the situation?  I know he could have chased her down in his car, or walked briskly in front of her, or called in for air support, or fired silly string at her...but is what he actually did unreasonable?  If so, why?

.

I've highlighted the relevant legal definition for when Miranda must be advised. Clue train to retardville: it's not when you're placed under arrest, it's ONLY when you're to be subjected to interrogative questioning (that is, when you're questioned for things that pertain to your innocence or guilt - ie non-basic information such as name, address, etc.). It's still prudent for police to give you your rights as soon as reasonably possible, but they are not REQUIRED to do so immediately on arrest. Take your derp somewhere else.

I was responding to his idiotic claim:

Also, if she was just tackled without being recited her Miranda rights at the same time, then they were just assaulting her.

I know that it isn't required until before questioning, but it is pretty standard practice to do it as soon as they are arrested. My not a cop or lawyer brain tells me it is to make sure they are covered if the person in custody just decides to start talking.


My bad - I read your response as their response, hence the confusion on why you flip-flopping on the subject. I haven't had lunch yet, my brain is moving into energy conservation mode. Sorry!

Several years ago I was at an Outback steakhouse and the table behind us kept trying to keep little Brittney and Shania in line.

I am guessing they are dancing for dollars about now. Well maybe in a couple hours, it is still early.


Was at a 2nd grade "come see the snowflakes" thing at my kids school and the parents behind us had a pair of preschoolers wtih them... named Ranger and Charger.

Coincidentally, I went to an inner-city school, and there were two black girls in my class with the name "unique".  One was spelled with a U, and one with a Y.

moeburn: Capo Del Bandito: moeburn: So if you run, you should expect to get beat? I mean maybe grabbed and arrested, sure, but they continued to beat her after she was already pinned and in their grasp.

Ok dunno how many real life 'altercations' you've been in, but that isn't exactly a moment to 'stop and analyze the whole situation'. If the cops have stopped you and you try to leave, and then take off running, yes you will be tackled, face in the dirt, cuffed and hauled off like a hogtied animal.

I've been in literally the exact same situation as this girl.  Couple of cops saw me run a red light when I was on my bike (well, more like treat a red light like a stop sign, safely, at 4AM).  I had headphones on (again, at night here), so apparently I didn't hear them yelling at me.  Next thing I know, cop car slams into my bike and tries to run me over.  Cop jumps out of car and proceeds to bash my head into metal door, denting their car.

There was no violent crime in the neighbourhood.  They weren't looking for a criminal.  They were looking to "teach a punk a lesson".  You condone that?


So basically, these officers you met are likely to assault any deaf people they meet.  I SAID THEY ARE LIKELY TO ASSAULT ANY DEAF PEOPLE THEY MEET!!!

When tackled by cops, you tend to get scuffed up some.

None of this shiat would have happened if she'd just gotten in the back of the car and got driven home.

"Wright also said she did resist officers once she was knocked to the ground. 

Yeah, pretty much stopped reading once she admitted to active resistance.

After they tackled her for no real reason?

Broke ordnance (not sure the curfew is a law), then ran when questioned.  Seems like a pretty good reason!


So a $50 ticket or warning and passively walking away deserves as escalation to tackling and assault?

That's like fumigating a house to kill a fly.

Tigger: There should be no such thing as a farking curfew at all.


We have curfews in Kansas City. They apply to different areas, at different times of the year, and none of them came about because some grumpy guy wrote a letter to the editor complaining about how kids should be at home studying instead of out and about. If that would work, we would have a law that no one under the age of 18 can be outside his own fenced yard at any time of the day or night without a leash held by his guardian. And his guardian would have to carry a bag to clean up any messes the farking punk made.
But that doesn't work. My letters never even get published in the Star. Instead, the curfews came about because teens would constantly disrupt entertainment districts, week after week after week, and the police got tired of hauling them off to the station so their parents could pick them up. And the parents got tired of complaining that their precious little jewels were just bystanders and never caused anyone any trouble. So we have curfews, and the curfews work.

After ignoring the officers' repeated commands to put down the threatening item in his hand, a bag containing a double order of General Chao's Chicken and a pint of rice, Livingston reached for the doorbell.  The officers responded by opening fire on his strategic top-of-the-stairs position from point-blank range, discharging their standard-issue 9mm handguns 245 times and striking him with approximately 175 teflon-coated hollow-point slugs.  Defiantly ignoring the officers' orders to freeze, Livingston dropped to the floor and convulsed wildly, kicking and thrashing and hurling blood in all directions.

Nah, its the thread where we hate on cops for trying to subdue someone who was running away from a law violation. We all know the cops shoulda just shrugged it off and let them go...and if turned out later that those kids were breaking curfew and running away from cops because they were commiting crimes then, meh, surely those cops would not be haraunged for not doing their jobs. No harm no foul, obviously.

genner: jshine: genner: jshine: Looks like she had good reason to run from the cops - they're dangerous thugs with no self control and probably will not be held accountable for their actions.

If a suspect is unarmed and not fighting back and you put her in the hospital, you should be tried for assault - badge or no.

Except she was fighting and admitted it.

...or putting up her hands in a defensive posture?  Many beatings come with defensive wounds -- it's an instinctual reaction that is nearly impossible to avoid.

That would be a good argument if she didn't admit to deliberately fighting the police. The facts of the incident aren't in question. All sides agree on what happened. The stupid girl actually thinks she has the right to slug an officer and not get hit back.


TFA: "They both just tackled me to the ground and smashed my face into the ground with their feet and their legs. Then they started pulling my hair and pushing me and stuff, and I was screaming real loud," Wright said.

It doesn't sound like she punched the officer.  ...but even if she had, two armed men should be able to subdue a 17 year-old girl without that level of violence.  If they can't control the situation without putting her in the hospital, then at best they don't have the judgement required to be police officers.  Or has police training really devolved to "beat the suspect until they stop moving resisting"?

Recoil Therapy: Rincewind53: You think this would have happened to white kids? Hellllll no.

It really would depend on the part of town that they were in.  The girls admitted to breaking curfew, giving the police some attitude, running away & fighting back when caught.  The police were justified here in giving out a very minor amount of street justice regardless of color (perhaps not to the extent that they did here though).  In a neighborhood filled with expensive houses, expensive cars & doctors & lawyers living there, no the police would have been much more gentle.  However I can think of a neighborhood around here (95% white) where the girls there would be beat on just as much for doing the same as these did.  Of course that neighborhood is filled with meth heads, junkies, welfare queens & just pure white trash.

It's economics not race that determines much of the police actions these days. Can daddy afford a lawyer is one of the first things that they ask themselves before the street justice comes into play


Yeah man, curfew violation is serious business.  Running down teenagers, tackling, then beating them because they were lippy and ran is reasonable response from police.  Gotta show those kids who's boss.  Can't let them get away with being lippy and running.  No sir.  Breaking curfew is tantamount to murder, so actually they should have just shot her.
