She was sure surprised when he tasered her backside for resisting arrest.

Hey, lookee there, Eberly! Cops do know how to deal with those who refuse to follow mask regulations.

How is it that this was so hard for you to imagine a few short weeks ago?

LOL one white lady gets treated the same as countless black people and it'll be national news and an outrage!(TM).

I love the idiots in the background "this ain't riiighhhht".

Law and order.

If she chose to refuse to wear the mask, she should face the consequences for doing so.

It is people like her why the Sweden 'no lockdown' approach (if it had worked there) would not work here. There are just too many people here in the US who have no clue about teamwork, i.e., working together for a common goal that benefits them all.

It was ironic, though that she was there to watch her son play on a team. maybe there's some things her son could teach her....

#3- last line - she decided not simply putting on a mask was more important that watching her son play football. What a choice.

By the way, I think wearing a mask when you're outdoors and isolated like that isn't necessary, but the reason we have to have mask ordinances that are too broad and general like this is (IMHO) is because people just aren't smart enough or disciplined enough to know when it's ok and when it's not to wear a mask.

An instructive video on a few levels. Thanks Tor.

The science supports that.

I just can't get over the rich hypocrisy in this. Can't wait to see the national reaction (saw GMA did a segment on it) to see how glaring the double standard is.

Her fat blonde friend should have been tased and arrested too for interfering with a lawful arrest. I'd hate to be married to that Trumpista Karen.

This isn't cops just going out of their way to being sadistic these new rules are ones we have to enforce if we're going to survive a global pandemic that has already killed 200,000 Americans in a matter of months

As Sitzkrieg might say, for (bad) cops, it gives them new opportunities to be sadistic.

But that's a problem with cops, not a problem stemming from having laws.

#9 - same in Florida now.

DeSantis' orders are going to kill thousands.
People (Trumpers and COVID-19 deniers and idiots) are already ignoring social distancing, have thrown their masks away, and are packing restaurants and bars.
All County/City/Municipality orders to wear masks are now null and void.

It's just f**king glorious.

I expect there's going to be quite a rise in COVID-19 in a few weeks, followed 23 days later by another rise in deaths. That on top of Florida just experiencing their 7th highest rate of deaths from COVID-19 just a few days ago.

Can we assume then excessive force by police only matters if it's someone black?

#12 | Posted by BillJohnson at 2020-09-27 10:13 AM | Reply

#12 - Why do you think this was excessive force? She refused to comply with a lawful order, she resisted arrest, she got tazed ONCE, and she was taken into custody.

She wasn't beat up, kicked, had her head bashed in, had a knee on her neck, suffocated, shot, thrown in a van or driven around until she had a broken neck, etc.

What you've managed to do so brilliantly, Bill, is illustrate the problem and why it persists, and why Black Lives Matter is so important and meaningful.

Actually I think you did.

It's a mask for crying out loud and she was seated far away from other people.

it's the law. You don't get to decide what you think is just and what you'll comply with without repercussions. Ask any black man.

Hey Bill - one more question for you - should this White Woman have been injected with a dose of Ketamine suited for a woman twice her size while she begged and pleaded, complying with everything the police said to do?

#16 | Posted by YAV at 2020-09-27 10:47 AM | Reply

She wasn't wearing a mask when the cop approached her
So while she may have been seated away from people she could have exposed the cop
Also she was sitting in the stands. I believe that the virus can live on surfaces for a relatively long time
Sooooooo Yes there are reasons why she should have been wearing a mask

#17 | Posted by truthhurts at 2020-09-27 10:48 AM | Reply

#16 - just to be clear, the woman wasn't complying, she was fighting, she was resisting arrest, she was doing everything Elijah did NOT do, and all she got was a little does of tazer. That's white privilege. That's why BLM exists.

Yav,

That would be Tor, not you, for putting up this thread and acting like this women deserved it.

If someone put up a thread manhandling a black woman just for not wearing a mask, you can sure the posters on this site would be making comments.

You were the one that posted #12.
Don't dodge the cognitive dissonance (I hope you're having) now, Bill.
The questions directly go to your statement.

By the way, Bill, this women absolutely deserved it. 100%. Why do you think she didn't? This'll be good. Elucidate:

When I come to a red traffic light, I stop until it turns green.

I don't get to decide that, because there's no traffic on the other road, I can ignore the red light and drive through the intersection.

I stop at red lights.

Yav,

I don't think not wearing a mask if you sitting far away from other people should be handled with that much force even if you're green and covered with polka dots.

It probably goes back to the fact mask wearing has taken on such a political tone and a control issue.

She was sitting far away from other people and we don't know if she was putting on a mask when walking about.

Based on what I see I was bothered to see such behavior went on over a mask and disappointed in the lack of concern over this because she was white.

#23 | Posted by BillJohnson at 2020-09-27 11:14 AM | Reply

Read #4 on my thoughts on the mask, Bill.

What you're saying is that you think she should have the right to determine when the law applies to her.
I disagree.

By the way that last sentence in #23 is a doozy.

I see what I see.

What I didn't see here in a 2 day old thread is anyone commenting on the behavior of law enforcement.

Yav,

Mask laws are inconsistent if the goal is safety.

Going to a grocery store with mask is more risky than what I saw in that video.

Irrelevant.

My point is this woman may have been in the wrong about not using a mask, her treatment was excessive for the severity of her offense.

Tased over a mask? Come on.

And I was disappointed to see an apparent lack of sympathy and in fact an implication she actually deserved it.

Snoofy...I'm done with your whataboutism.

Your problem with how the police act is exactly the same problem Black Lives Matter has with how the police act.

Bill,

Her treatment was for refusing to follow a lawful order.
Her treatment escalated for resisting arrest.
This is the same that goes down over and over, again and again, where black folks are killed.

You just don't, won't or can't acknowledge those facts.

Shall we now count you in the "Defund the Police!" crowd? Now that you've been offended by completely standard police actions?
(knowing that "defund" actually means to reduce funding and reallocate funding to other first responders better equipped and skilled for those tasks)

BillJohnson is clearly able to recognize excessive force.

When used against a white person. Especially if it's carried out by a black person.

He doesn't have much of anything to say when excessive force is used on a black person.

He doesn't consider himself a racist, either.

Because she was not wearing a mask, she was asked to leave.

That was the treatment she received for not wearing a mask. She was asked to leave.

She could have put on a mask, or she could have left.

She chose to do neither.

The rest was because she refused to leave and she was resisting arrest.

#35 - Exactly, except the Police in this instance operated completely according to the script:
Issue the order to comply with the law. If perp complies, walk away. If refused:
Issue a citation. If accepted, walk away. If refused, or person refuses to identify and provide information for the fine then:
Arrest the person. If the person complies with the arrest, take the person in. If the person resists arrest:
Subdue the person and arrest them using necessary force. If the person fights:
Escalate the tactics, including using non-lethal force (tazer),
etc.

What's so funny is how many times I've seen on this board "Well if that Black person had only complied they'd be alive and they could fight it in court" and now we get to hear "Why should that white woman comply at all?"

#41 BillJohnson has convinced himslelf they won't turn on him, even if they find out he's gay.

It's some pretty advanced Stockholm Syndrome.

But not as advanced as Boaz, who thinks they won't turn on him just for being black.

Blue lives matter.
Comply or die.

The cop should have shot the thug in the head for resisting arrest, then skull banged her while maintaining eye contact with her son. Total domination.
