That is literally the exact thing you said. That deprivation of life or liberty can occur only after a trial and conviction.

By the same token, therefore, it is also impermissible for a police officer to shoot and kill a person who has just murdered a dozen people in a school lunchroom and is, at that exact moment, reloading his weapons so that he can continue the killing spree.

School punishes blind child by taking away cane and replacing it with a pool noodle | FOX2now.com

Quote:
Parents are outraged after they say an elementary school punished their blind child by replacing his cane with a pool noodle.

Dakota Nafzinger attends Gracemor Elementary School in Kansas City. The 8-year-old was born without eyes — something in the medical world known as Bilateral Anopthalmia.

School District Spokeswoman Michelle Cronk tells FOX 4 in Kansas City that Dakota hit somebody with his cane on while riding the bus. She says they took away his cane and gave him a pool noodle because he needed something to hold. Cronk said Dakota fidgets without his cane.

Dakota’s father, Donald Nafzinger, said his son lifts his cane sometimes and the bus driver thought he was using it violently.

“They said they were going to give me this for the next two weeks,” Dakota said.

Dakota’s family claims the cane was taken as a way of “humiliating” him for misbehaving.

Maybe more related to the other thread but newsworthy nonetheless.

He did. Can't leave until his replacement is confirmed. Care to guess when that'll happen?

cops also fear for their safety when dealing with cops:

Cop Shot by Cop From Another Force Who “Feared For His Safety” | The Free Thought Project

Quote:
Yonkers Police Commissioner Charles Gardner said Campion “seemed suicidal” and “moved in a way that made the officers fear for their safety.” That is when Officer Remy Susini fired at Campion, the bullet grazed Campion’s chest and ultimately landed in his arm. No information has been released on how they knew he was suicidal during the brief encounter.

The entire incident took less than five minutes and it has not been disclosed whether or not Campion informed the officers that he himself is also an officer.

cops that break the law are still cops:

South Carolina police chief refuses to suspend officer after arson indictment

Quote:
South Carolina police chief is refusing to suspend an officer under his command who was recently indicted on arson charges, reports WCSC.

22-year-old police officer Travis Balkom was arraigned on Tuesday on third-degree arson charges for allegedly setting fire to two homes in 2009, when he was 16-years-old. According to authorities, both homes burned to the ground and neither was rebuilt in the aftermath.

Cottageville Police Chief Charles Long defended Balkom, calling him a “gentleman” and a “well rounded officer,” while stating that he believes Balkom is innocent.

its common practice to lets cops get away with drunk driving:

Sheriff?s deputy arrested for OVI| Dayton,OH News | www.whio.com

Quote:
A Montgomery County Sheriff’s deputy is on paid leave after he was arrested for driving drunk last weekend.

Sgt. William “Terry” Abels, 44, is using accrued vacation time, and is not working with the Montgomery County Drug Task Force while the criminal case proceeds, Maj. Daryl Wilson said Monday.

Abels was charged with driving under the influence Saturday morning after he was pulled over by an Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper on North Dixie Drive near Little York Road in Butler Twp. He was reportedly driving left of center when he was pulled over. The trooper said there was a strong odor of alcohol from the vehicle, and Abels allegedly was lethargic and had bloodshot eyes. He refused to take a breathalyzer test, but failed two field sobriety tests, according to the highway patrol citation.

At the time of his arrest, Abels was driving a 2012 black Chevrolet issued to him by the county for use on the drug task force. He was hired by the sheriff’s office in 2005 and has been working on the task force for about two years, Wilson said.

Abels was identified as a sheriff’s office employee about midway through his arrest. However, he did not ask for special treatment, and was released to a sober driver and summonsed into court — a common occurrence for first-time offenders, said Lt. Mark Nichols, commander of the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Dayton post.

“Everyone who’s arrested for OVI does not go to jail. In a lot of our cases, as long as the person is being cooperative, does what we ask them to, obviously we would allow them to have a ride come pick them up,” Nichols said.

The sheriff’s office command staff was notified of Abels’ arrest Saturday morning, Wilson said. An administrative investigation will be initiated once the court case concludes

Bayonne police officer charged with use of excessive force | New Jersey News, Politics, Opinion, and Analysis

Quote:
A Hudson County man was arrested on Friday and charged with violating a defendant’s civil rights by using excessive force during an arrest that took place in Bayonne, as well as falsifying records in an attempt to conceal the alleged crime, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced.

Police Officer Domenico Lillo, 44, of Bayonne, was arrested by federal agents Friday morning and after a federal grand jury in Newark returned an indictment charging him with the deprivation of civil rights under color of law and falsification of records. Lillo had his initial appearance and arraignment before U.S. Magistrate Judge James B. Clark III in Newark federal court. He was released on $100,000 unsecured bond.

According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:

On the early evening of Dec. 27, 2013, Lillo and other police officers from the Bayonne Police Department went to an address in Bayonne to execute a Sussex County arrest warrant.

Lillo allegedly struck the subject of the warrant with a flashlight while the individual was handcuffed and not resisting arrest, which resulted in bodily injury. Lillo allegedly falsified a Bayonne Police Department Use of Force Report related to the arrest with the intent to impede an investigation into the case.

The use of excessive force count with which Lillo is charged carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. The charge of falsifying records carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.

otherwise known as cops hate cameras.

A Hernando County deputy shoots at vehicle after man shot himself - Story | abcactionnews.com | Tampa Bay News, Weather, Sports, Things To Do | WFTS-TV

Quote:
A Hernando County deputy fired his gun toward a vehicle early Friday morning after a man inside shot himself.

The Hernando County Sheriff's Office received a message from Citrus County Sheriff's Office regarding a shooting that had occurred in Citrus.

Citrus wanted Hernando County deputies to look for a man that they suspected was involved in the shooting.

Around 2:41 a.m., Hernando County deputies found the man in a white SUV in the 7-11 parking lot at Berkeley Manor Boulevard and Commercial Way.

As deputies were approaching, a shot was fired from within the vehicle. In response, one deputy returned fire. Dispatchers were advised at 2:42 a.m. that "shots were fired."

Deputies said a white man was inside with self- inflicted gunshot wounds. He later died at the hospital.

Initial reports indicate that the male was not struck by any of the deputy's rounds.
