Hey Utah. Fuck you. Again.
REMEMBER Jared Massey? The dude that was brutally tasered by the Utah thugs? Remember the investigation, that found the thugs' actions to be "lawful and reasonable"?
This apparently generated enough publicity that there has been a new bill introduced into the Utah Senate (SB260) to keep this kind of thing from happening again. Sounds fantastic right? A step in the right direction, which is to protect the people from the police?
Think again. Apparently its still perfectly acceptable for civilians to be tortured by the police. What is unacceptable is that the public finds out what the thugs are doing.
Yes, you read this correctly. Senate Bill SB260, introduced by Senator Chris Butters, will prevent evidence of police misconduct from being available to the public.
