conservative said... Mothers in church with their beautiful chlidren and husbands, just as GOD ordained, what a blessed sight!

Yeah! With clergy and members who won't think twice about "sexing" it with ungerage girls or boys.

We can agree, though, that APPEARANCE IS EVERYTHING! ;)

On Hammonds: Making a few phone calls to help a friend is pretty tamed when compared with the extremes some in the field have gone to protect and cover for a friend, family member or fellow partner.

Just goes to show not everyone freed from bondage has a desire to remain free.

dinodestroyerdanny You do know don't you that it's a black guy that's pushing this sagging law, don't you? His name is Joe Towns. Some state rep or something out of Memphis. He tried this law a few years back and the whites thank GOD for white people actually sort of tried to delay it. Now he's at it again, and this time it looks like he might get his way. Not a very bright individual when it comes to historical realities.

America slipping into fascism Supreme court rules on strip searching. Americans can now be strip searched for any reason or no reason. No matter the how minor the charge. Are all right wingnut conservatives just a bunch of lunatic perverts?

Believe me: you don't want the state having the power to strip your clothes off. History shows that the use of forced nudity by a state that is descending into fascism is powerfully effective in controlling and subduing populations.

The political use of forced nudity by anti-democratic regimes is long established. Forcing people to undress is the first step in breaking down their sense of individuality and dignity and reinforcing their powerlessness. Enslaved women were sold naked on the blocks in the American south, and adolescent male slaves served young white ladies at table in the south, while they themselves were naked: their invisible humiliation was a trope for their emasculation. Jewish prisoners herded into concentration camps were stripped of clothing and photographed naked, as iconic images of that Holocaust reiterated.

One of the most terrifying moments for me when I visited Guantanamo prison in 2009 was seeing the way the architecture of the building positioned glass-fronted shower cubicles facing intentionally right into the central atrium – where young female guards stood watch over the forced nakedness of Muslim prisoners, who had no way to conceal themselves. Laws and rulings such as this are clearly designed to bring the conditions of Guantanamo, and abusive detention, home.

Our surveillance state shown considerable determination to intrude on citizens sexually. There's the sexual abuse of prisoners at Bagram – der Spiegel reports that "former inmates report incidents of … various forms of sexual humiliation. In some cases, an interrogator would place his penis along the face of the detainee while he was being questioned. Other inmates were raped with sticks or threatened with anal sex". There was the stripping of Bradley Manning is solitary confinement.

Bet you don't mind seeing those cute little butt cheeks hanging out from under those short shorts though, do you Rtazmann?

Rtazmann, I've seen boxers exposed. I've even seen shorts exposed under the sagging shorts or pants. However, the only time I've seen actual fleshy butts were on those white guys with big beer bellies hanging over their waistlines. You may not care about one skin color, but we already know which skin color will likely be targeted. Black people stay too focused on non-issues. So much so that they overlook their real problems. But keep on tap dancin' for the massah all the way to the prisons and back into slavery.

jess, it really doesn't matter what kind of rap sheet Smith has. The issue is did this officer step across the line? Did he commit a crime? Smith's criminal history is a separate matter. Maybe you should pull up this officers' personnel file to determine if he's just another ticking time bomb.

Getting arresting in America has become so commonplace that it's almost impossible to not end up with an arrest at some point in your lifetime. The only individuals without an arrest record are like those who have only newly arrived from another country.

In a country where every act comes to be considered a crime, every citizen is likely to become a criminal at some point.

In today's America one can be arrested for most anything. If there's nothing, many cops will think up something or even lie to make an arrest. That's what happens when so much power and authority are given to individuals who never deserved it in the first place.

BTW-jess, next time you try to pull up someone's rap sheet be sure to compare the name and b'date. The last name Smith is quite common, and so is the name Christopher. There are several Christopher Smiths on the site you probably went to, but either none or very few appear to be this particular Christopher Smith on closer look.

@JMHOWARD10, even fellow officers stated these officers were wrong. You disagree with them too?

Stephen Minney was arrested by East Ridge police after he was found walking near Parkridge Medical Center, intoxicated and acting unruly on Sept. 18, according to the arrest report.

No one checked on Minney in the holding cell until the following day when they noticed dried blood from the laceration.

When a new shift officer came on duty and asked what happened, Minney said, “You ought to know, you and your officers beat my [butt].”

Minney was given medical treatment at the jail for the wound. When Minney was booked, the corrections officers described him as verbally abusive and uncooperative, according to the report.

In the booking area, the officers both grabbed each of Minney’s arms and took him to the intake countertop, and then to a holding cell.

During interviews with investigators, Harden said he forgot what happened. After viewing the video, he said Minney “got slammed around a lot,” by Standifer.

Harden and Standifer said they were both unaware of any protocol relating to unruly inmates. Harden said the actions taken with Minney were consistent with how they normally deal with inmates. Standifer said during his training it was stressed that, “The No. 1 thing is officer safety.”

A training officer viewed the video footage and stated that if an inmate is intoxicated to the point of falling down, they must be checked by medical staff. Corrections Officer Terry Jeffries, who is assigned to the training division, said Minney was not physically combative. He described the actions taken against Minney as excessive, which included being shoved against the wall and then thrown to the floor. Standifer also placed his knee in Standifer’s back.

“The actions of Officer Standifer were just uncalled for, 100 percent,” Jeffries told investigators.

Mouthing off, even at a member of LE whose ego is easily bruised, apparently, is no justification for excessive use of force. PERIOD!

@renemorton, you must be viewing a totally different video footage than anyone else. Even members of the sheriff's dept.

Not mentioned in this article, but here's what some from the inside stated:
