Here we have 3 or 4 stores, all posted on Raw Story at the moment, presented here collectively to further illustrate that cops are out of control and stuff is happening several times a day now, literally, across the country.
OK, this one lived.......... This time.....
“I’m a retired fire captain and this is just the most outrageous thing I’ve ever heard in my life,” the woman’s father, Steve Olsen, was quoted as saying. “I am a total supporter of law enforcement, but this was wrong. This was out of control.”Guilty until proven innocent by a $12 piss test, offices so jacked up on War on Drugs propaganda they can't think straight. It's a wonder the girl is still alive.
Olsen’s daughter, Kylee Olsen, was arrested on Friday by San Bernardino County sheriffs deputies. At the time, Kylee, who was born with fetal alcohol syndrome, reportedly told officers she had “special needs.”
“They stopped me when I was getting on the bus,” she said. “They asked me when I had last used meth and I said I had never used it. They said my pupils were completely red and put me in the back of the car. I was really scared. I didn’t know what to do.”

Police would not comment on the case, but Steve Olsen told the newspaper that an officer called him Friday night following his daughter’s arrest on a “drug sweep” and told him she was taken in under suspicion of using methamphetamine. She was charged with “being under the influence of a controlled substance” before being released shortly after midnight on Saturday. She also reportedly took a drug test, which came up negative, and has no criminal record.
Others are less fortunate.

Now, off to Kansas.
Family members of a teen who was shot at least 16 times by police in Ottawa, Kansas said this week that the 18-year-old was unarmed and suicidal when he was gunned down.He was even white.
Brandy Smith told KCTV that police were there when her nephew, 18-year-old Joseph Jennings, had tried to kill himself with pills last week.

Smith recalled that around six officers responded, and two of them had helped save Jennings’ life by taking him to the hospital after his overdose just days before.
“It was like six — six officers, and one cop yelled, ‘Bag him!’ And they bagged him,” she said. “And he kind of puffed up a little bit, and then they bagged him two more times, and then like 16 shots rang out, and they shot him. And he fell to the ground.”
Jennings was later pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
And finally, South Carolina. Sea to Shining Sea
In cell phone footage provided to WSPA, police officers can be seen surrounding a man lying on the floor in a prone position. According to the police report, the man had been acting erratically in front of the store and appeared to be intoxicated or under the influence of drugs. The man told a responding deputy “I’m 911,” before entering the store at which time officers decided to take him into custody.2 videos at the link: won't embed here.
According to Greenville County Master Deputy Jonathan Smith, a second deputy tasered the man when he resisted arrest. In the video, officers can be seen wrestling with the man on the ground as one officer repeatedly punches the man in the head as one shopper can be heard saying, “Please don’t punch him like that. Please don’t. Don’t punch him no more.”
According to one witness, he thought the police went too far.
It's not just "bad apples". Its not just this place or that place.
It. Is. SYSTEMIC.
There was a saying and a poster I remember from the late 60's/early 70s.
If you think cops are pigs, then the next time you're in trouble, call a hippie.Sounds like excellent advise these days.
