Penny, can you please let us know when you get a chance if this deputy is working? Kriston, I agreeRead More with you.

Shripathi Kamath - I looked up the Lallana case. Once you get over the 'ick' factor - veryRead More comparable in deed and certainly not in sentence. Especially not when you factor in that the crime in this here case was committed while carrying a badge. Assault and Battery by an officer under color of authority. Is there a greater breach of public trust? Most astute of you to bring this up. It is truly amazing what sort of conduct police get away with these days, for no other reason than being Law Enforcement. I watched the Kelly Thomas surveillance video. While I was not on the jury, how a not guilty verdict, after watching that horrid film, could humanly be possible is inconceivable to me. Which makes the conviction here so much more amazing, but the sentence and consequences again is par for the course. One cannot help but feel that there is one law for them and one for the rest of us. Serve and protect my arse. I am not a spring chicken, and I never thought I would ever feel this way in my old age.

If I worked at a pizza place and sprayed a deputy sheriffs pizza with pepper spray I would mostRead More assuredly be fired as well as be brought up on charges of assaulting an officer. Probation?? This deputy has shown his true character. He has probably engaged in this type of behavior before ( or looked the other way when other deputies have) and like will again. This is who we look to for protection? Ha!
