The last time I went to jail was because I developed schizophrenia and uncontrolled movements. During this acute episode I was experiencing, I knocked
over a display case at a video store and videos fell all over the floor--fortunately, not a one was damaged. Anyways, they took me to jail. While
there, me and the other inmates watched from our cell as about 5 officers punched, kicked, clubbed, pepper sprayed and tazed a man on the floor in
handcuffs. Not sure what he did, but, he was already in the jail, handcuffed, on the floor, had officers holding him down and, pretty much, he was
unable to do much of anything to them.
Later on, while in jail that same night, we were moved to an open room with a officer on guard in it while we waited to be moved again--they moved us
around a lot-- and my uncontrolled movements caused me to touch the officers shirt as he was standing in front of me with his back turned, I mean I
lightly pressed, but, it was enough that he decided that I was a threat who needed to be choked out.
Another instance, we lived next door to a sheriff's deputy and his boss and the other officers from his department were over in his garage drinking
some beers. My brother had opened his beer can and it sprayed onto one of the officers and the officer punched my brother as hard as he could. All the
officers had a laugh and went on drinking.
And, when I was a teen, several officers stopped me and pinned me to the car with their guns drawn and stuck them in my ribs, face and back while
they repeatedly searched me and ran a check on me. They told me that if I even breathed funny they would shoot me. I was never told why they stopped
me, but, before leaving they told me not to move before they got out of the area or I would be arrested for resisting arrest.
Maybe, people should petition that the Constitution be amended that government shall pass no law that applies to the citizens that does not apply to
the government; and, the government shall pass no law that applies to the government that does not apply to the citizens.
