Either the pos gets away with this assault and abuse of power or he just cost taxpayers a bunch of money from the loss of a lawsuit.

Why not both?

The department will throw him on "administrative leave", while they investigate themselves and come to the conclusion that their officer did nothing wrong. Then their union will pay for a lawyer for the civil suit (which they should lose), and cause the city's insurance to fork out a couple million in a wrongful arrest suit. The city's insurance will go up, causing taxes to go up, and all because one dick couldn't control himself.

Anyone in that ER at the time should absolutely also sue the police officer, because their care was interrupted / degraded from this dickhead.

I hope she sues, that there's a jury trial, that the jury isn't filled with corrupt cop ass kissers but honest people who see this for what it is and judge accordingly, and sue this guy personally so he can't get away scot free.

Payne was suspended from the department’s blood-draw program — where officers are trained as phlebotomists so they can get blood samples — but he remains on duty with the Police

Clear abuse of power. Everyone has to follow laws/regulations/policies.

There is now material to have every case he's ever been involved in to be reviewed and potentially thrown out. His word as an officer is now pointless.

Just go ahead and give the nurse a check, make it a big one for false arrest, assault and unlawful detention. Then publicly fire the detective. That ought to do it. Thats what will happen anyway.

Common sense is often is short supply, I've got no idea why they call it "common", because it isn't. The cop needs to be arrested and charged with assault, what he did was so out of line the firing and taking his pension would also be sweet. What an asshole with a attitude. I get some real laughs about what some here consider justice.

Unlawful arrest should carry a mandatory minimum of 10 years.

Two weeks hard labor would be better. It saves the cost of retraining, provides a public example of why to hold your shit together, and the humiliation will cause narcissistic power trippers to quit.

No I disagree. Or else cops would be too afraid to make tough calls. Him getting terminated and losing his ability to police is enough.

Why? If anyone in the Federal workforce fucks up it is a automatic 10 years.. It should be the same for you cops.

Nevermind. You cannot be a cop any more than the guy in the article..

Hell I could not have the self control to be a cop.

I'd beat ass on it..

The most accurate term I've seen for cops is "blue ZOG niggers."

The cops are not good dudes making the most of it in a bad system. The cops ARE the system. Whenever someone calls the cops it's because the cops won't let us take care of problems ourselves.

If "good" cops don't immediately shoot partners openly breaking the law, they're part of the problem. Aiders and abettors of the enemy get the same treatment.

Oh, I see. We can't make generalizations if there exists a possible exception. You know, not every hand grenade explodes. I guess since there's an exception, we can't make any judgement calls on, say, the suitability of grenades as toys for children, right?

If cops don't want to be painted with a broad brush, then those blue niggers need to man the fuck up and deal with their own instead of being a bunch of limp dick pussies more concerned about maintaining a unified front to protect their little club.

“I’ll bring them all the transients and take good patients elsewhere,” Payne says.

First, the officer had probable cause to arrest the passed out man otherwise why ask for the blood sample? SO all he needed to do was indicate the arrest.

Second, the comment of using the homeless and indigent as a weapon against a Hospital is the epitome of abuse of power. This guy "Payne" needs a different line of work. Maybe he could work for a lobbying company.

I'd like to know what you think qualifies as probable cause in this case. The person in question was in a vehicle accident caused by a high speed police chase. As the nurse points out, there was no probable cause, no warrent, and no consent.

It's not just an abuse of power, it's likely an abuse of policies as well. Is he now going to NOT call an ambulance for someone if he thinks they'll be taken to the hospital in the video? Is he going to load them up in his car and take them closer to a different hospital just to spite the hospital in question? Or is he going to start arresting EMS people if they say 'You can't tell us we're not allowed to take patient to X hospital.'?

I don't claim to know that. I am asserting the the Cop must have felt he had that otherwise why ask for the sample? I can speculate as to what that probable cause might have been but so can you. Drug/alcohol intoxication causing slow reactions thus contributing to an accident scene COULD have been the thinking process. The point is that the cop's request for a sample SHOULD have been based on this, a reasonable suspicion.

It's not just an abuse of power, it's likely an abuse of policies as well. ' Totally agree. The guy should not be a cop and the department needs a review to see if this one guys attitude reflects a culture of impunity and contempt for the citizenry.

If you read to the end, the article frames the victim very interestingly. Turns out he was a victim above suspicion who got caught up in a police highway chase incidentally. The actual fleeing criminal died at the scene. Additionally the victim was an off duty officer probably having pressure put to exonerate him of all culpability. When they couldn't get the blood sample that showed he was clean, tempers got high, because they were never trying to do what the nurse was implying they were trying to do: railroad an unconscious person.

The arrest was likely unjust, but the characterization changes totally by the time you get to the end of the article.

Well, that's one way to solve the student loan crises: Keep encouraging officers to perform illegal arrests, win in civil court, pay off loans.

Genius!
