In defense of the cops, they probably thought they were just brutalizing a regular black person and didn't realize he was deaf.

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

Was the victim married, or completely deaf?

You guys are missing the point. This is an uplifting and inspiring story about a deaf person overcoming his handicap, and convincing the local constabulary to treat him no different from the rest of the citizenry.

mrshowrules: 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

hardinparamedic: The One True TheDavid: 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?"

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.

Sweet mother Teresa on the hood of a mercedes benz. You sound like a majestic farking eagle of a genius.

Now I don't know you. And NTTAWWT. But I'm guessing you are one magnificent power bottom.

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.

"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.

gshepnyc: Macular Degenerate: It should be completely legal to shoot an officer who tries to beat you in a traffic stop. Just sayin

This is the kind if thing I've said in other contexts, like it should have been completely legal for the parents of that recently murdered kid to have killed the cops who attacked him. Why should a cop's life be worth more than everyone else's? Why do the rules of self-defense not apply if your attaker is a cop? My life is the only one I'll ever get. I do not owe any part of it to needs a cop to feel in control.

In all seriousness, maybe if we see enough blatant cop killers being acquitted, cops will begin to change the way they interact with the public.

Dallas had a huge conundrum fit when the son of the police chief murdered a policeman from a neighboring town.

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

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.
