TASED WHILE HANDCUFFED – 3
Ashley Gaston kicking her dog in a locally viral video on June 7th, 2019 (left) and the Lancaster city police removing the dog from her home the same day.
“Later, at the city police station, he was told he would be strip searched. When he objected, he was wrestled to the ground and shocked with a stun gun by two unidentified officers.”
From the LNP article linked to immediately below.
What LNP reporter Tim Stuhldreher leaves out of this article is that the lawsuit alleges he was handcuffed and being held down while he was tasered in the police station.
On June 7th of this year, a video of Ashley Gaston kicking her newly acquired dog on her porch went viral locally. She alleges the dog tried to bite her son. The Lancaster Police removed the dog from her home and with help from the District Attorney’s office arrested Gaston on the same day and charged her with a felony.
Her bail was set at $50,000 cash and she spent three months in prison before Judge Reinaker reduced her bail to unsecured in early September.
The reason I was checking the court calendar yesterday for this coming Monday (see yesterday’s post), is because she was originally scheduled to go on trial on Monday. According to court administration today, her trial is now scheduled to begin on December 6th.
So what has happened to the two police officers who allegedly tasered a handcuffed man in the police station? Was it captured on video? It should have been. Is that as “bad” and criminal as a woman kicking a dog that tried to bite her son? Why haven’t they been charged? Are these officers still on the street?
There will be much more to come. Click here to see the videos on this site and here to see the Lancaster Police Press release on her arrest and charges.
** On to serious news. LNP, weeks later, has finally done a story on the new excessive force lawsuit against Lancaster City and several police officers but have not yet put in on their home page (click here to read). And there is something very important missing from their story.
* I’m just trying the cheer up that letter writer (and myself) with this post seen on the internet…
I AM NOT READY!
Imagine waking up, turning on your computer, going to LNP’s e-Newspaper, reading the Letters to the Editor page and finding this! Have mercy!
How do you get ready for the end?
Someone take this letter writer a nice cup of hot tea.
Nothing I publish today will come close to this doom and gloom!
Please check back later today.
