A post on TomCat's blog. A few things this week which seem to me to invite the attention of the Greek Furies.

Thanks Joanne--these cases of the public beware of those who swore to protect them are all deserving of the furies...and you make a good point about our gun laws fueling the risks.

The point about the gun laws was made by Lona in her latest As Seen From Afar, and I though it was a very good point indeed.

Megaera: I saw this video the other day, his arm (Marlin Gibson's), showed bite marks from the K9 dog, picture looked like he was in the hospital. I'm nonplussed by the officer's reaction to a group of young men who were trying to make money by mowing lawns. This happened in Houston, Texas, but has happened all over, men and women tased, shot, and jailed. Ditto on Tweet comment too.

Tisiphone: Police officers got 'qualified immunity'?? W.T.H??? See above comment.

Alecto: omg. THIS is what we've become?? Unreal.

You know what to do, Furies.

Thank you, Joanne for post.

I didn’t go to the Sojourners site, but you may have expected that of me, but I’m glad that the girls have only some “light” work this time. Deplorable as what happened in the three cases may be, nobody was killed or put in hospital or had their life ruined for ever. And there was even some humor to be found in a judge’s decision, a rarity I guess. I won’t linger over the darker side of including how to avoid being shot by police in a driver’s manual. That would ruin my sleep.

Thanks for another great post, Joanne.
