If you think this isnt a police state...think agai


Star Rating 5/1/2010
The sherrifs and police here act like they are above the law and continually get away with it. They regularly harass innocent citizens and overstep their boundaries for minor offenses. This is not specualation-it has been reported many times and they are being sued constantly.

I am your typical college-educated white male who had never committed a crime more serious than a traffic offense and I was assaulted, tazered/electrocuted and arrested in Scottsdale by off duty sheriffs a few years ago. They then made up a bunch of lies in their reports to cover each other to make it appear more serious than just a case of mistaken identity. The alleged crime was that I had made an inappropriate remark to someone at a concert on my birthday....never happened. I was forced to plea or face more serious charges in court with the only real evidence being my word.

I doubt this is uncommon here-just look up how they "accidentally" did it to one of their own just a few months ago. Was this a horrible mistake on their part?....YES. Am I reminded of each time I fill out an application?...YES. Will I ever get justice? NO Writing is my only outlet and so that is what I chose and if you think that they only harass illegals or hardened criminals you are mistaken.

WOW, that Sucks! Even if you did, but I believe you, say something out of line, that is NOT a reason to tazor someone!! Why don't you sue them?? If people don't stand up for what is right, things will never change! I understand it would be your word against theirs, but a good lawyer should prevail! Believe me, people know cops band together to cover their A--!! A similar thing happened to me when a police officer ran a light, hit me traveling 65mph, and claimed he was chasing someone; I than got 3 tickets while in the Emergency Room! Today, 9 years later, I still suffer from chronic pain. Fortunately there were 3 other witnesses they backed up my story!! Write a letter to the newspaper as well, find other stories on the Internet, keep writing until people begin to listen to your story!!
