To Serve and Protect, or To Torture and Abuse?
30 August 2010 - Man sues Marin Sheriff after being tasered half-to-death in own home [LINK] [via PHB]
I guess I may have missed this story at the time.
It's obviously an evil incident and I hope Mr. McFarland wins a huge settlement or judgment.
As I've mentioned before, make 'em pay dearly for denial of wrong-doing. In this case it should be a million dollar option, on top of any other considerations.
The apparent silence from the overall law enforcement community regarding this incident is an embarrassing mark on them all. The evil Blue Brotherhood of Silence is a major part of the problem.
Or perhaps they just missed the news too...
The law enforcement community really needs to Get an Ethic and Have It Installed.
