I think cops should be pepper-sprayed and tased once a month just so they remember how it feels. And shot once a year in a non-critical body part. Like the head.

Screaming hysterical people are not likely to help any given situation, and should be tased repeatedly in the scrotal regions until reason prevails.

cman: When police aren't scared they do whatever the fark they want

Nothing will happen to the officer that did this

Anyone who interferes with any government employee ought to be punished to the fullest extent of the law, and the penalty should be harsh. Our civil servants should be beyond reproach. There's no need for an investigation. If the EMT and officer say it happened like that, well, that's what happened. End of story. Nothing to see here. Move along.

When I march on King's Landing, my army will spring from a curated list of the coldest, hardest badasses Fark forums can offer. I will take my dragons to your homes, and kill both your firstborn and all your bastards before your eyes to test your ability to think and act rationally in the face of horrifying blood and grief. Those who fail will not gain entrance into my army, but your lives will be spared. Your nipples will be removed, however, as punishment for being full-of-shiat ITGs. The rest will march, and Westeros will be MINE.

log_jammin: red5ish: There isn't enough independent information in this crappy excuse for an article to form any kind of opinion except that the author is a lazy coont.

It's not that the writer is necessarily lazy, it's just that without a police report there is only his side to go on, and apart for "we put her in the ambulance...then backed away" he doesn't give any real details.

My son and I placed my daughter in the ambulance and backed away.

we ran her over to the parked ambulance. We put her on the gurney that was halfway out of the ambulance, and I screamed that my daughter had shot herself
At this point, I backed away because I thought they would put her in the ambulance and drive away

My feeling is that he did not "back away" as he says he did.

"Your feeling"?? Well, holy shiat it's solved then!!

Yeah, I have to side with the police here. Young woman found shot in a park and two screaming lunatics. First and foremost, these two were helping no one and nothing. Obviously they had their reasons to believe it was a suicide, but the EMT and cop just arriving at the scene? ... the shooter could have been easily been one of the aggressive guys on the scene. The dad even says the EMT had turned and asked him what happened when he was screaming at the EMT to do his f'ing job. Next up he sees son getting sprayed and taken down to the ground.

With all that said, it may be the decent thing to drop all the charges. If I found my kid dead, I probably wouldn't be the best conversationist at the moment.

spidermann: Say it with me boys & girls:

jury nullification

Except that the court *really* hates that. I think they ask you now if you believe in that, and if you say yes, they kick you off the jury pool (got jury duty coming up next month. yeah.) And they (From what I've heard) ask you under oath, so if you lie and say you don't agree with it, and then push for that, they can get you with prejury

Why wasn't the firearm and the bullets locked up separately?

ghare: And so, since she was dead, they pepper-sprayed a grieving hysterical father  - for what? Interfering with their treatment of a dead girl? Nothing else would have sufficed, huh? No sympathy for the guy? No hugs, two guys don't just grab him and neutralize him, nothing would do except a pepper spraying? Well, I guess it's better than the lethal beatings cops hand out sometimes for people screaming, or looking at them wrong.

This.  In D&D terms, I'd rather have neutral good cops than lawful neutral ones.

Well I hope their dead daughter is happy. Not only did she kill herself, but she also got her father and brother arrested. Selfish biatch.

orclover: Prosecutors offered Russell a deal: plead guilty to assault and take anger management classes, but he says that would be admitting he did something wrong, and he insists all he did was scream.

Guy was offered an easy way out and he didnt take it, but the cop apologist pile on in this thread right from the start.  This guy is farked, his family is farked.  Hell his other kid is going to prison probably along with him.

Once again its pretty obvious.  There is no loving god, there is no karmic balance.  This is just a shiat covered mudball spinning through a chaotic universe of pain and suffering, while we wait for the sweet release of death.

crab66: Woooooo! Cop hate thread.

I suppose it is appropriate for you to cheer and scream when your side will always win.

Are you available for children's parties?

robohobo: I'm sure all those who have such a hatred for police have forever foresworn 911 and police intervention.

Do you spend a lot of time imagining what the "bad people" think?
That's unwholesome thinking, you know.

mediablitz: "He says the incident was immediately reviewed and the officer involved has not been reprimanded or corrected in any way."

How convenient.

convenient? Just based on this article, and no other evidence, I'd most likely come to the same conclusion. The cop probably didn't do anything wrong.
