Dave Herman's Wife Film's Tasering Incident and Felony Charges made up on the fly
Just another instance of cops overstepping their boundaries and not really enforcing any laws. Wasn't a chase or a violent drunk Herman Charges seem like BS. Just goes to show how an article about multiple felonies, resisting, and endangering a child can really be just spun from the real story where the cops appeared dumbfounded and unable to answer basic questions so they can understand what is going on with whatever civilian they have encountered. Why find out what is going on when you can just taze people and then charge them a misdemeanor that is literally for `making them have to use their tazer` apparently. Now I wish he had fought some cops, instead we just have cops abusing power. What else is new. If that's the actions that consist of what this country considers a multiple felony situation we might as well all go to prison for the rest of our lives now. EDIT: Didn't think until I clicked that this should probably go in the UFC forum not the news forum... so mods, feel free to move it if that's where it should be posted.
