         This is one of the most disgusting things I have read in years. Even for racist LNP, this is a new and unbelievable low. And they have not made one mention of a second video in the same week where Detective Nathan Nickel assaults a totally incapacitated man and then threatens the woman taking the video with arrest.
         Let them know this is totally unacceptable:

    1. I am so over this case. The guy didn’t cooperate, period. There was no conflicting orders. He was told to put his legs straight out and cross his ankles. He didn’t. He was given multiple chances. Police tell people to do that because it puts suspects in a position that makes it hard for them to jump up and attack or flee. To do so, they would first have to make significant movement to get there legs under them to stand up. Police do it to keep themselves and others safe. It is standard procedure and a common direction. They can’t put him in handcuffs right away because then he may be able to say he was arrested illegally. Do what you are told and there is no issue, period. Police can be jerks, but they put their life on the line every day and are constantly dealing with potentially dangerous positions. Taking away their ability and right to maintain complete control over tense situations is NOT proper and will put them in even more danger. That may not be the popular opinion about this case, but as someone, outside of law enforcement, but familiar with procedure, that’s how I see it. It wasn’t a pointless order…..the officer was trying to make sure he could maintain control and diffuse the situation so he could investigate. This guy was being difficult, so the officer resorted to force. Makes sense to me.

    2. I completely disagree – but I am too hot and tired to argue it now.

    3. Williams wasn’t on his way to help out at vacation Bible school. He was high as a GD kite on booze and illegal pharmaceuticals. He’s a career criminal with a reputation of terrorizing his neighborhood. Had Sean cooperated with Officer Bernot’s instructions he wouldn’t have gotten tazed.

    4. Please see this morning’s post!
