Carlos Miller over at Photography Is Not A Crime reports today of a woman who called the police when she thought she saw a prowler. The response of those hired to “protect and serve” was to pepper spray and taser her several times. What did she do wrong? Legally… nothing. Apparently they were punishing her for not telling them what they wanted to know.
Both of the scum (Ryan Smith and Tim Murphy) involved in this incident no longer work for the department but Smith has been hired by a neighboring county as an officer. Look out Chattahoochee county, if you call 911 you may end up getting tortured.
In a rare moment of honesty we get to see what goes on inside the heads of some police officers when the officer who tasered the woman said that he would likely do it again to “get control of the situation”. There you have it folks, that is what it is all about, control. Not upholding the law, not protecting a citizen from violent offenders but control.
I eagerly await danieldamienm/damian921’s justification for why she was somehow in the wrong, because “what balls or right do you (meaning me) have questioning an officer of the law on what law they can or cannot enforce at their discretion?”
Oh, that’s right. I have all the rights and balls to question officers. Always.
