In America, now officially a police state, you will be tasered in your own home if you lip off to the police.

Senior citizen Peter McFarland of Marin County, California, discovered this after he fell down the stairs outside his home last year. On June 29, 2009, McFarland tumbled down the stairs and after his wife called paramedics the cops showed up. They entered McFarland’s home and tasered him because they claimed he was suicidal.

“We want to take you to the hospital for an evaluation, you said if you had a gun, you’d shoot yourself in the head,” a deputy can be heard saying on a video of the incident captured on a taser mounted camera. McFarland said the comment was hyperbole made because he was in pain.

DENVER – Coloradans are outraged and demanding action from city leaders after seeing our investigative report about a dog owner beaten by two Denver Police officers.

It’s a story FOX 31 News broke Tuesday night.

Now the Denver police independent monitor says he’s responding to the public outcry and reviewing the video to see if a larger investigation is warranted.

Mark Ashford was walking his dogs near 20th and Little Raven, when he witnessed police pull over a driver for failing to stop at a stop sign. He told the driver he saw him stop and would be willing to testify in court.

His attorney, Will Hart, said the police officers overheard Ashford’s comment and “weren’t happy about it.”

Hart said the officers demanded Ashford’s I.D. and wouldn’t let him leave. “They had no reason to stop him or detain him, that’s a violation of his fourth amendment rights,” said Hart.

Columbia, Missouri Police Chief: “I Hate the Internet”

Columbia, Missouri Police Chief Ken Burton is apparently frustrated. At another press conference yesterday, a reporter asked the chief what he has learned from the international attention generated by the YouTube video of his department’s SWAT team conducting a drug raid last February.

His reply: “I hate the Internet.”

I’ll bet he does. For two-and-a-half months, Burton and his department were quiet about the raid. That’s likely because, as I wrote yesterday, the raid was really no different from the tens of thousands of similar raids conducted every year, and that are probably conducted by his own department a couple of times per week. Within days of the video hitting the web, Burton was forced to hold several press conferences, and has now laid out several reforms to the way SWAT raids will be conducted in Columbia in the future. I suppose it’s possible those reforms were brewing all along, and the timing of him announcing them after the video went viral was mere coincidence. It seems at least plausible, though, that the dread “Internet” sparked some actual policy changes, here.

Editor’s note: More evidence the cops are not here to help you. In fact, more evidence the cops are here to victimize those they are supposed to serve.

BALTIMORE — Baltimore City police arrested a Virginia couple over the weekend after they asked an officer for directions.

WBAL-TV 11 News I-Team reporter David Collins said Joshua Kelly and Llara Brook, of Chantilly, Va., got lost leaving an Orioles game on Saturday. Collins reported a city officer arrested them for trespassing on a public street while they were asking for directions .

“In jail for eight hours — sleeping on a concrete floor next to a toilet,” Kelly said.

“It was a nightmare,” Brook said. “I was in there thinking I was just dreaming and waiting to wake up.”

Collins reported it was a nightmare ending to a nearly perfect day. He said the couple went to a company picnic and watched the Orioles beat Kansas City. It was their first trip to Camden Yards and asked two people for directions to Interstate 95 South when they left.

Raw Exercise of Power: Cops Beat Student for No Reason

The Associated Press video below carries the following headline: “Video Allegedly Shows Md. Police Beating Student.”

There is nothing “allegedly” about it. Cops from Prince Georges County, Maryland, clearly attack the student after a basketball game. He is slammed against a wall and beaten with batons for no reason whatsoever. He did not threaten the police. The student made the mistake of being on the street and in close proximity of the cops. No other crime was required for the cops to beat him.

The police initially charged the student with assaulting the police but later dropped the charge. Check out the video. Does it look like the student attacked the police? Or are the cops neanderthal thugs who get off on exercising their arbitrary authority and beating people senseless?
