I'm so tired of seeing this kind of s&^%. It should be entirely legal to resist in that kind of a situation and any injuries sustained by the cops entirely on them without insurance coverage while they're also responsible for any injuries sustained by the person they abuse.
Why did you get up and walk away when you saw me?
Doesn't matter. That's not a crime or indicative of one.
Why aren't you eating inside?
Who cares. It's not a crime to eat outside.
Dude was looking for a confrontation and to abuse somebody, take out his anger, whatever.
When he attempts to pat him down, Aguilar Mendez resists and a struggle ensues.
Based on the video I saw, this is inaccurate. He grabs the kid aggressively and, not surprisingly, the kid reacted. That was all the cop needed to go full blown d&^%head mode.
While fighting on the ground with the deputies, Aguilar Mendez grabs the taser to try to take it away or stop them.
An entirely reasonable thing. To charge somebody for acting out of self-preservation instinct is haneous.
Sheriff Robert Hardwick said during a news conference the sergeant did everything by the book and that Aguilar Mendez was trespassing. "All the suspect had to do was comply," Hardwick said.
Ahhhh yes another freedumbz loving "c-c-conservative." And FL wonders why normal people think it's a s&^%hole.
