Police sodomize handcuffed man with taser



While Obama was shedding tears over his African-American brother being arrested for disorderly conduct, an audio was released of the Boise police sodomizing a handcuffed man with a taser. This incident did not get much media attention as both the police officer and the suspect are White.

While I am not a fan of Professor Gates, he does have point that the police can engage in brutal and illegal behavior. The ubiquitous nature of video and audio devices has captured much police abuse that was previously unknown to the general public. Most people tend to think police act like what they see on TV.

For years, the unofficial police standard operating procedure was to beat up any suspect that was uncooperative. The suspect would then be charged with disorderly conduct. And without video or audio evidence, a jury would almost always believe a police officer over a “criminal.” As such, this sort of behavior by the police was not exactly unusual.

  1. Police are so over loaded with testosterone, adrenaline, potential crazy. Pushing them even a tiny bit is the stupidest thing to do.

    That being said, I've had many experiences with cops (sounds bad lol). Never had problems. Both regular officers & SWAT have always treated me very well, too nice sometimes.

    Glad you survived Chicago! Chicago police tapes are too scary :D

  2. If you are polite, police will usually treat you OK. However, too many police are quick to act like the Judge, Jury and Executioner. This becomes especially dangerous as we start to live in a Police State.

    This abusive behavior is not also limited to men. Earlier this year there was a video of a small 15 year old girl who kicked off her shoes in a holding cell. The shoe happened to brush against a cop and he went into a rage and beat the little girl up pretty bad. Again, if this was not on video, the cops would have claimed she “fell” or something.
