Oh look, CHICAGO, Obama's

Oh look, CHICAGO, Obama's home town! A shiny beacon of everything great and American!

Remember when they said there wouldn't be death panels? Looks like they weren't lying!

Refuse "health care"? GET TASERED, SHOT, AND MURDERED! No vote-by-death-panel required.

I have no more words

This kind of thing happens so often without cops being punished that I am lost to express my feelings in mere words.

So here ya go. May all bad cops get what's coming to them: http://youtu.be/ZnldI4WiiCA

“Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.”― Henry David Thoreau

That'll teach him!

Too bad he's dead now.

I wonder what the riot

I wonder what the riot shields was for? Either way I hope that the policeman who shot the old man gets convicted for manslaughter.

Hope in one hand

and crap in the other. Which hand do you have the most in? Cop? Convicted? Don't make me wet myself laughing.

“Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.”― Henry David Thoreau

Well, he should get

Well, he should get convicted. Police should never stand above the law only uphold it. If they do not, civil disobedience and crime will get higher and approval rate will be going down.

Of course police does not always (seldom even) follow the law if they commit a crime themselves. It is sad to see so much distrust here but it's even sadder knowing it isn't unfounded.


you think that when the 'big' one comes...
they will stop
and remember their Oaths?
Buy a gun... protect yourselves, your family, your neighbors.

also absent this delightful tale

who's brilliant idea was it to call the cops?

Thank You Smudge

for posting this question. I was wondering that myself since if they hadn't called the police none of this would have happened. Another interesting tidbit is all of this came about because he was refusing treatment. Isn't that an important fact?

No where did I see that this man was not competent. Wondering if they had him pumped full of Respridal (antipsychotic) since that is the drug of choice for non compliant elders in nursing homes.

Important fact? Yeah I'd say so.

As a former EMT, a person who is alert, aware and oriented has the right to refuse any and all treatment including critical life saving treatment. All you have to do is tell me who you are, where you are and what day it is to establish "A+OX3".

Further, the treatment prescribed was stated to be life threatening.

Medical professionals who involved law enforcement have some explaining to do in this case pertinent to medical ethical violations.

Further, cops are supposed to defer to medical professionals with regard to patient care and handling. They own the scene and it's safety, we own the patients. Sadly this is no longer the practice but it remains written policy.

This poor old guy was deprived of his life, liberty and what happiness remained to him.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.


Another citizen, family, and group of bystanders get the privilege of tasting the cake of tyranny people have baked. A law desert lacking any ingredients of grace or mercy must taste delicious because people can't seem to get enough of it.

may i point out

this post would look a lot better if we knew what the man's name is, where this happened, which police dept. at what phone number (public affairs officer please) plus email address we might use to congratulate these fine officers of their upstanding duty?

yes, why so much anonymity?


it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, assaulting a LEO

Departmental policy was followed, the officer feared for his life, risk their lives every day, bla bla bla, copy and paste, words to that effect.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

I don't have words anymore--

could have been my dad--

(if he were alive)

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Only a coward or a me me me

Only a coward or a me me me PIG would be a cop today. There is no honor in their occupation. There is no honor amongst any of them. This story epitomizes my belief, and this story is just the TIP OF THE ICEBERG to epitomize my belief.

It's pathetic what the police have become.

Beware the cult of "government"...

Usually the cop who commits the crime gets a promotion.

At least he can say he "went

At least he can say he "went down fighting". He defended himself until the end. Kind of cool for him.
