Let this be a lesson to all of those who continue to persist in the belief that the police are there to help and serve us. The tragic story of Theodore Wann should serve to show that if you are having a family problem, the LAST place you want to call is the trigger-happy, bloodthirsty police department. This young man was going through some sort of emotional disturbance and his parents, desperate for help, called the sheriff's department.

This is the kind of incident that happens all the time, especially in impoverished communities where people don't have the power to fight back. The difference is that this time, the survivor of the brutality had the guts and the support to file a claim, which was investigated and is now resulting in charges against two deputies, one for the brutality, the other for "false impersonation of an officer." (She claimed to be a different officer.)

DC police chief issues excellent guidelines on citizens taking pictures of cops

As part of a settlement with Jerome Vorus, who was ordered to stop taking pictures by DC cops, DC chief of police Cathy Lanier has issued guidelines to her officers on citizen photography of police activities. They are extremely excellent guidelines, too, as Timothy Lee writes in Ars Technica:

Scandalous stop in Fontana results in beating, deportation

OK, this is a little bit complex. The press is reporting that an "unruly" crowd "interfered" with the interrogation and arrest of this man, and that he was suspected of DUI (at least according to the Daily Bull, although the P-E makes no mention of that).

What the community is telling us is that the guy was racially profiled and stopped for suspicion of not having a license. The people who crowded around, they say, were family members and neighbors who were protesting the injustice.

Here is the version from the SWRNN. They still haven't said whether he was armed or not, not that that would excuse this:
