On September 14, 2014, Dani Reardon (aka Lil Monstar) physically attacked and assaulted her boyfriend, then kicked his car windshield. When police arrived on the scene, she “bashed her head repeatedly” against the squad car following her arrest.
Her boyfriend declined to press charges, but for her behavior in the squad car, it’s likely she’ll have some legal troubles.
Domestic violence does happen to men. We cannot ignore this. If we are against domestic violence, then we must be against all forms of domestic violence. Dani Reardon is an abuser.
Don’t resist – it will only be worse for you.
Another week, another galling report of police brutality.
This time, the victim is an 8-year-old Rosebud Sioux girl whose babysitter called the cops when the child threw a tantrum while holding a paring knife. The babysitter told the 911 dispatcher that the girl was trying to cut herself but also admitted there was no visible blood. In other words, this was more a case of an unprepared babysitter than a suicidal kid.
Nevertheless, police arrived and tased the girl within two minutes of meeting her. Explains the family’s attorney:
The material facts are fairly undisputed, they walked in, they saw a child holding a small kitchen knife throwing a tantrum and they shot her with 50,000 volts of electricity with a weapon that put two hooks into her.
As the girl’s grandmother commented, the way police escalated the situation is totally inexcusable:
Four police officers responded to this…To a little girl who stands maybe only 4 feet tall. All you have to do is grab her arm and correct the situation. I feel that these guys must not have been in their right minds. At that age, children are very easily talked into changing their minds. I find it ridiculous because I just don’t see how this could happen.
Only after the tasering was the child’s mother called—a move which indicates they had (or could easily have gotten) her number all along.
Per the grandmother’s account, the police’s continued defense of their actions included the excuse that they could have used a baton or handgun instead.
Two months after the incident, which occurred last year but is only just now receiving extensive media attention, the local State’s Attorney, one Wendy Kloeppner, released a report which stated “she was satisfied with an independent investigation, deploying a taser was the best viable way to diffuse the situation.” As a result, no charges were filed against the officers involved.
If this is the best option for a harmless child then what’s the best option for a harmless adult then also think the best option for a harmful adult and child best off of this statement
This is the GOP’s way of saying that Obama screwed the pooch when he pulled out of Iraq but they’re too fucking dense to realize that OBAMA FOLLOWED W. BUSH’S TIMETABLE FOR LEAVING IRAQ. Obama not only followed the previously set time frame agreed upon between Bush II and the Iraqi government he fought to occupy Iraq longer but was denied by the Iraqi government. So these supposed “limited government” types are arguing that not only is Obama’s foreign policy too weak, but that the US government should have remained an occupying force even against the wishes of the people of that sovereign country.
The unintelligible and incoherent pro-war philosophy rears its ugly head once again. These people will stop at nothing to dedicate more American lives to a money pit of death and despair. Will they ever entertain the idea that it was our original intervention in 2003 (or even in the early 90s) that led to the rise of ISIS? No way no how. The only problem was that our military intervention wasn’t big enough. Not costly enough. Not deadly enough (similar to how the left likes to argue that the stimulus or bailouts weren’t big enough). The Democrats and Republicans are just two wings of the big government party.
The Pentagon pays for PMCs to still be in Iraq too
So what are your political views?
