This is one of the worst decisions a court has ever made. As citizens of a free country we all have the right to leave our keys in our vehicle and not have to worry about getting sued. Sure it increased the chances of it getting stolen but on a cold morning I always go start my vehicle and let it warm up. If someone steals it, from that point on anything that happens should be the fault of the theif. Not me or the police. Its always bad when innocent people get hurt but that should still be the fault of the idiot stealing the car. If the court system would punish criminals instead of trying to rehabilitate them, which has been proven ineffective over the last 100 years maybe that guy would have thought twice over stealing that vehicle. I wonder at any point during this case did anyone ever consider holding the thief accountable? Probaly not, because the criminals will always have more rights than us honest law abiding citizens, as long as we as a country continue to elect career politicans or the person with the biggest budgets to offices. Wether it be county, state, or at the federal level. Whoever spends the most money and gets the most media coverage usually wins and we as a country need to refuse to elect these people even if it is the popular choice, if we ever want change.
Everyone needs to support the police and sheriffs departments, instead of trying to pick at everything that they do. I will be the first to admit that there are a lot of bad police officers who abuse their position, however the majority are honest hard working dedicated professionals who day after day do one of the most dangerous jobs in the world, not because they pay is great or because they enjoy working in the blistering heat, freezing cold or pouring rain. They do it because they are good people who are willing to put their lives on the line for all of us. As far as tasers go in my opinion police officers need them they save lives. For example would you rather the police shoot and kill someone who is threatening them with a knife when the use of a taser could end the situation with the risk of serious injury drastically reduced. People need to be realistic the criminals already have more rights than us law abiding citizens and the police the Federal appeals court needs to be doing something other than making it harder for the police to do their jobs.
