Wannabe cops....not real ones.
Gee, I can’t imagine why anyone would hate the pigs. He must not have had a dog they could shoot.
He’s lucky they didn’t shoot him in order to save him.
Pretty sure I’d be in jail for punching out the cop.
I don’t care if it was a week later.
Try to find a jury to convict me!
I used my garden hose on a fire while waiting for the fire dept. once. I got a brief honorable mention in the newspaper for it. No tazers. Of course, I live in the good old U.S. OF A unlike the guy in this story.
Police said they can sympathize with the stress Jensen was under. But they said he put himself and officers in danger when he refused to back down from fighting the fire.
Warren v. District of Columbia
Police do not have a duty to provide police services to individuals.
Published: June 28, 2005
WASHINGTON, June 27 The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that the police did not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm, even a woman who had obtained a court-issued protective order against a violent husband making an arrest mandatory for a violation.
How are they in danger when they know they have no duty to protect him, according to SCOTUS?
If it only took 6 minutes for firefighters to get there, how were the police there first?
This story makes no sense.
I misunderstood. I clicked because I wanted to learn more about this special garden hose. I was thinking "American ingenuity... the Republic will surely survive."
There was a time in American history when the liberal use of tar and feathers delivered a very clear message. It is long past time that this tradition was revived.
All citizens are suspects. Suspects will comply or be tazed. Welcome to the New America.
I hope that guy sues the hell out of those pigs.
It is because he isn't an "official" government agent. Only "official" government agents are authorized to fight fires.
I detest these small-brained idiots with a little authority. They don't know it's not enough to SAY that he put himself and officers in danger when he refused to continue fighting a fire that threatened his property.
How exactly, you morons?
Obama may get away with that crap, but you incompetents can't.
Pinellas Park Capt. Sanfield Forseth told the Tampa Bay Times authorities could have even charged Jensen with obstruction, but decided against it.
Then charge him, pea-brain! I relish the thought of a trial and the decision of a jury.
Or be prepared to lose a suit for abuse of power under color of authority. I would contribute to this victim's defense.
I can’t wait for the day that citizens start paying these thugs with badges back, up close and personal. Like when they are shopping, or at the movies, or...
Just walk up behind them and WHAM!
"You fool!" [/Gilbert Gottfried]
The various activities and scenarios DON'T FIT THE LIE AT ALL !
I pray the sadistic bastards that did this get raped repeatedly by their enormously well-endowed cell mates.
I’m all for the proper use of TASERs, but I would stipulate that the proper use is as an alternative to deadly force when deadly force is otherwise indicated.
sorta makes you wonder if when you see a fire or a crime in progress, should you do something about it or just stand by and watch?
water and volts don’t mix
“let insurance take care of it...”??
There was a day when cops would help fight the fire until the firetrucks arrived, even drag out people and kittens from the house.
