Widespread Panic Police Brutality

I live in a great small city. Tallahassee, Fl. Yep, that's right, the city of lights. I was with a friend this evening at a great Widespread Panic concert. I danced the Donkey Kong and then sat down for a slow minute to get lost in the music.

Suddenly, a police officer walked in front of me. He pointed to a guy up one row, "Come here!" The guy simply walked over. Then out of nowhere the ass hat grabbed the concert goer by his shirt with both hands and body slammed him onto the seats directly in front of me. The concert goer did not resist at all. He simply listened and obeyed the orders that Officer Ass Hat barked at him. Then Ass Hat slapped cuffs on one wrist and demanded that Concert Goer give him his other hand. The only problem was that Ass Hat had Concert Goer pinned down so hard he couldn't pull his other arm out. Ass Hat then threatened to shoot Concert Goer with his taser if he did not give him his hand immediately. Another concert goer helped Concert Goer and then Ass Hat toted him away.

I don't know why Ass Hat brutalized young Concert Goer and did not read him his Miranda Rights. As much as I could tell the guy got brutalized for taking a puff of marijuana. I realize the stuff is illegal in Florida but come on. Concert Goer will most likely have back problems for life from that brutal body slam onto chairs. We need to stand up for our rights in this country. The home of the free, right?

Officer Ass Hat had the night off. That was his cousin, Officer Maverick.

I saw that go down as well...which makes sense since I was sitting next to you. It was horrible and I wish I had a real camera phone. Actually, I wish it never happened to begin with.

I wonder if that rouge cop has a blog, as I would love to tag him.

Right. First marijuana, then heroin and cocaine! Can't you see that pothead was well on his way to destroying America with his buzz and his dancing?

dancing prohibited in tally? where's kevin bacon when you really need him?

seriously though, wtf is wrong with the tally po-po? not enough minorities to abuse (that's the LA talking)? i assume that said concert-goer was a student at one of the fine local educational institutions?

Pabst Blue Puddy- The entire thing was awful. I am certain he was not a U.S. citizen because he was treated without any rights. I was making eye contact with the renegade (err...bastard? - this was FSU's basketball arena after all)cop for a few seconds too, and I looked into his soul and saw Putin. It was very strange.
