I just saw the video of the cop tasering the kid in the car, dragging him to the curb and dropping him on his face and saw the sentence he got, which
was ridiculously low for what happened.
When people are sentenced for criminal activity which takes place by people in power, the fact that they are in power and abuse it needs to be
considered heavily in their sentence, more-so than what it seems to be taken into consideration - especially when it results in physical harm and or
permanent physical harm/disability. I recommend at minimum that when sentenced the entire sentence must be carried out and early parole is not an
option. I also think that the sentences should be longer (1.5-2x longer) for those who do permanent damage to someone.
I know police go through a lot but there needs to be more of a deterrent for them acting illegally and they need to be help personally responsible
more (maybe financially as well) instead of being able to hide behind department insurance policies or just having the department being sued/paying
This also goes for people in political office, if they bully people or anything that abuses their position of authority. IDK how much this would
extend into the private sector but I guess there are some circumstances where people in private industry can abuse their position of power, but I
think it is drastically needed in law enforcement (local, state, federal) & government b/c people don't have a choice but to interact with them, they
can't hire the police THEY want to patrol the streets and they often don't pick the people in office (meaning they didn't vote for them, or didn't
vote at all).
