3 officers in oklahoma have been arrested for raping women while on the job in just the past month. Capt. George Brown of the highway patrol offers this helpful advice for other woman hoping to avoid getting raped by the police: follow the law in the first place so you don’t get pulled over.

That's just brilliant, really the type of thing we need from high ranking police officers. Shows they really get it.

If you don't want to be raped by a police officer, don't challenge him. It's as simple as that.

At least the state acted quickly, trooper was fired last week, and was arrested yesterday on assault and battery charges.

^^ According to some of the brain trust here, he did the right thing...after all, the MOST important thing is a cop protect himself/herself regardless of their responsibility to the public.

Um, yeah, he went in to get his ID, then jumped out because you told him to. Unbelievable.

Good thing that guy is still alive after getting shot by that idiot cop. At the very least, he should be getting a nice cash settlement.

Dude's carrying a pellet air-rifle he's going to buy at the Wal-Mart. He's on the phone and can't react quick enough when then cops shoot him dead. (someone else in the store, with a hear condition, died of a heart attack)



Oh, and no indictment for the cops who killed the innocent (black) dude who was just buying a toy gun from a store.

CHP officer punching woman.

I'm sure that was a measured response - I mean, she was covering her face - how else is he going to break through her hands and connect with her face unless he does it repeatedly, with a lot of force?

I'm not sure if this was posted, but the lady got $1.5 million. The officer resigned.

He's an officer that had been shot at before. I'm not condoning him having to fire any rounds, much less the amount that he did (luckily for the guy, the officer is a terrible shot), but maybe he wasn't offered any retraining after the 2012 incident. The ironic twist, he gets the same sentence as the guy that shot at him.

Also, whenever I've been asked for ID, I always ask first if it is ok for me to reach for it. The guy did make a rather sudden move.

Actually, now I'm thinking that's why he was let go;
"You fired multiple shots at a black dude and he's still alive? That's not how we do things here - we shoot to kill black people. You're outta here!"

A Florida police department is investigating one of its officers after he shot a 62-year-old woman in the back with a Taser on Tuesday afternoon.

The incident was captured on videotape by a nearby witness.

Officer Terry Mahan of the Tallahassee Police Department and other officers responded to complaints about open-air drug sales in the area, the police department said in a statement Wednesday.

Probable-cause affidavits paint a scene in which officers feared for their safety because of angry residents berating police and calling others to the scene.

Police had detained three people when Viola Young "approached the police car inquiring about one of the individuals arrested," the statement said.
Young, 62, was charged with resisting an officer, police say.
Young, 62, was charged with resisting an officer, police say.

"An officer advised her to stay back, and a second officer approached Young and attempted to place her under arrest."

In the video, Young can be seen yanking her arm out of Mahan's grasp before turning and walking in the opposite direction.

She takes only a few steps before the officer fires a Taser cartridge into Young's back.

The woman collapses face-down on the pavement, then rolls over onto her back. Another police officer approaches Young and arrests her.

In a narrative included in a probable-cause affidavit, Mahan wrote that he went to the scene after officers there called for backup.

When he got there, he saw two officers engaged with two suspects on the ground, and "there was a crowd of people that had gathered around them and were yelling at the officers," he wrote.

As Mahan put one arrested suspect in the back of a patrol car, Young pulled up, forcing Mahan "to take [his] focus off of one of the arrestees and engage her," Mahan said in his report.

"Young's actions obstructed officers while in the course of completing their legal duties," he wrote.

Mahan told Young to leave. She responded that she wanted to know what was going, but Mahan told her, "now was not the time for that," and instructed her to leave again. She refused, he wrote.

"I informed Viola Young that she was under arrest and reached out and took her left arm. Young yanked away, turned and began to move away from me in an attempt to defeat her lawful arrest," Mahan wrote. "I deployed my Taser, and fired one cartridge striking Young in the back. Young was incapacitated and fell to the ground."

Mahan took Young into custody "without any further resistance," he wrote in his report.

From another officer's narrative, it appears police had to leave soon after the arrests "due to the hostility of the individuals remaining at the scene."

Young was medically cleared by Leon County Emergency Medical Services before being sent to the Leon County Jail, along with the other three individuals arrested, police said.

None of the four faces drug-related charges.

They all were charged with resisting an officer without violence, and Laguna Young was charged with a probation violation that Leon County Jail records indicate stems from a previous conviction on cocaine and drug paraphernalia charges.

Laguna Young was the only one of the four who had not been released as of Wednesday afternoon.

It's not clear if Laguna Young, 41, is related to Viola Young.

After reviewing the video of the tasing incident, Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo called for an internal investigation, he said.

"We will conduct a thorough investigation into this incident. We want to be transparent with the community by sharing what we can at this point, including the video," DeLeo said in a statement.

Mahan has been placed on administrative leave with pay while the investigation is being conducted, DeLeo said.

Because the case is now part of an internal affairs investigation, "this will preclude us from making any other statements, other than what is in our release, in regards to this case until the full investigation is complete," police spokesman Officer David Northway said.

No Knock warrants are RIDICULOUSLY dangerous....for the unsuspecting ppl inside. The vast majority are for NON-violet drug offenses.

This is what I don't get. First why would they trust the word of a criminal that is trying to save his ass and all for a lousy drug arrest? All the violence is by the police. If they have so few drugs that a few minutes is all they need to get rid of them then maybe they are not major drug lords. And if they do have alot of drugs they won't have time to do anything with a knock.
