I was standing behind a guy at Firehouse Subs who was all beat up, and he was telling a guy that he'd been tased 3 times after they had handcuffed
He could have been lying I guess, but I tend to believe him.
I worked in the psychiatric field for years, and we did a good many forensic evaluations and had a good many forensic patients. I noticed during that
time that our local police were harsh and would always want to put leg chains and arm chains on all the people, whereas most counties would use
discretion and decide on a case by case basis.
It was also our local police who pulled a gun on one of my nurses one night and forced his way onto a unit - he did not want to hear that he did not
have jurisdiction there or that he was breaking state law by having a gun on a mental unit. He could have got a lot of people killed. A nice nurse
just doing her job should not have to put up with that crap either.
Another time I saw a local girl come in with major head trauma. I had to send her back to the hospital she came from. She wasn't even a mental
patient - the cops picked her up having a seizure, and threw her in the back of the car cuffed. When she fell over seizing, they slammed the door on
her head, busting her skull.
Then they brought her to me? I don't think so. Her big crime was not being able to afford her phenobarbital.
