    so you seem to think the cops just rolled up & sparked him - no questions asked? i don't see it that way

    maybe the thread should be re-titled "various long standing & highly unlikely to be overturned police policies lead to unwarranted tazing of 0.0004% of citizenry; and they are so terribly sorry"

    but i think there's a character limit in play

    No he was probably singing "peanut butter jelly time" at full volume and clapping with his ring fingers but so what?

    What "long standing policies" are you even talking about? Being a dick to someone who looks like they've got a concussion?

    And not that it matters much, but I have been been told that the "politically correct" way to say it is "a person with autism", rather than being autistic. Like you would not say that someone who has cancer is cancerous.

    I doubt this will change your day to day life....but as I said, I was recently corrected.

    Uh, it seems the crime is being black and autistic.

    So you'll be safe mmike, since you only half qualify...

    Can we just get an F the police sticky?

    I feel like we are beating a dead horse (or dead black guy if your a cop) with all these popo threads.

    I really do hope the cops get their asses handed to them. (We all know they won't)

    But the impact something like this can have on someone with autism is pretty profound....way beyond beating up your regular run of the mill black dude.

    looking for classic NE singletrack
    You know, it would be very, very helpful for all involved if the people involved if those with autism had some way of communicating to the rest of the world that they had a disability. Since they're obviously not very communicative, maybe a symbol could be used to designate it. Then all of those with autism could have it sown into their clothing, so that the rest of us can be fully aware......

    Apparently none of you have ever been exposed to violent crime or lived in the inner city.

    The day a Police Officer second guesses herself or himself they will lay dead in a casket. It is war in the cities, and if your on the southwest it's only going to get worse. The cops in Mexico and some are not dirty are getting killed en mass.

    Thanks for the strawman, do not care. Autistic kids not getting tortured is more important to me than a police officer pissing himself.

    Again, thanks for the strawman-- but this is not mexico in question-- look at demographics: (of the first example in the article) ~95% white, median house income of about 60K, property values about 3 times the rest of GA..... Sure sounds like those cops are dealing with a sh!tstorm of live or die decisions on a day to day basis..... Much like the cops in my city-- (82% white, median income 70K, and higher prop. values than many places....) Most of our cops are fat, out of shape, and couldn't outrun a riding mower in reverse.

    manimal blames it on the equipment he has to carry.

    And seriously....I don't give a **** about a cop making "life or death decisions"....A kid sitting on a bench "acting weird". Cop did get the answer he wanted so he kicked the kid's ass. Taught him a great lesson. had he left the kid alone, nothing would have happened. He hassled the kid. Kid got scared and it escalated. Totally the cop's fault.

    And at the risk of exaggeration...and maybe I am...but the level to which that kid could be traumatized....could potentially be equivalent to the harm a pedophile could do to a "neuro-typical" (politically correct for "normal") kid. what that cop did was really really really really really really really bad. And yes I am biased, but in my mind that cop is no better than a pedophile.

    Pretty much. Temple Grandin (who has autism) describes their learning as rather..."primal". The example she used was if a horse is being led into a trailer for the first time, and he stumbles on the way in, generally the horse will be freaked out for life by trailers and you'll never get them into that kind of trailer again. A bad experience has been associated with that trailer.

    Similarly with people with autism. Now I'm not going to purport to be an expert on this. And it is obviously case by case. But if that kid was sitting there stimming enough to attract a cop's attention, obviously he was intimidated by the cop and likley would have shut down, wanting to be left alone. It is conceivable...I'm not going to say "likely"....but it is plausible he will now associate, that bench....or cheeseburgers.....or leaving home with that experience, and it could stay with him for who knows how long.

    People with autism have a hard enough time coping with just every day surroundings....crowded rooms, noisy traffic etc. So someone who is just sitting there minding there own business and out of nowhere (in their view) gets attacked and injured by a cop, and they have no idea why it's happening to them? I know I'm raving a little but I'm somewhat livid about this....

    This stuff is all just the inevitable result of the police policy of "if in doubt, escalate". In Western Australia the police union wanted the force to institute a policy of mandatory handcuffing of all people being detained by police. The police commissioner rejected the idea saying that removing the discretion of police officers to decide for themselves whether some one needs handcuffing will cause Western Australian police to become more like Americans.
    In Japan, for all their faults, the police will talk with someone for literally hours to defuse a situation without violence. That's how it should be, is it not? Best weapon is the gift of the gab.

    SCOTUS case law on use of force derives from an incident where the police used force against a diabetic whose suspicious behavior resulted from a sugar problem.

    Discuss.

    Look it's clear here that the lack of video doesn't tell the whole story. If you were those cops on that day and *those* people were trying to cross that bridge what would you have done? I'd have shot indiscriminately too. You weren't there man, you don't know what those guys had seen. Those limp-wristed, thimble-cocked, roll over and take-it-up-the-rear-passage liberals would have stood there and given them lollipops or some other kind of food.
