So I ask you, what are you doing? If the answer isn't LAWSUIT, then you admit that you are lying about what happened.
I don't see how you figure that to be logical at all. There are quite a few reasons why I chose not to sue, and it had nothing to do with what
actually happened that night.
You must not have a very good understanding of how politics works, especially in NY.
The police can't sit around and hope you aren't dangerous...
Ever heard of innocent until proven guilty? I posed no threat to them. Or maybe the police should just tase everyone they speak with, just in case?
Sorry but that's the only fact in this thread, if you're drinking and it's 1 in the morning, just stay home so you'll stay out of trouble. What do
you think the odds would have been that the police were going to trample all over your liberty if you just passed out on the couch instead of cause an
incident? I would guess 0%.
You guess wrong. This man was shot five times by police when they burst into his home while he was sleeping...
Do some research, you'll find that even in little old grandmas in bed asleep aren't safe. Like the one who was shot dead by police because they got
the wrong house.
Instead of assuming we're all stupid, maybe think critically that someone on here might actually be trying to help you, even if it comes off as an
insult or a personal attack on you.
Instead of being stupid enough to think that insults and personal attacks will get you anywhere near the truth, stop and think for a second that there
might just be some legit reasons why I wouldn't sue the department.
You can recover from this!
"Recover" from this? I hate to burst your bubble, but I am not so self-absorbed to let this dominate my life in any way. All in all, my case wasn't
really any big deal at all. I've taken a lot worse beatings in my life.
What is important however, is the trend. The abuses that go on that never make it to the newspaper. The things that happen that no one realizes until
it is themselves, or their children who become the victims of systemic police brutality.
What is important is that you are a frog in a boiling pot on the stove. I pray that you wake up and realize this, soon.
