Don't get arrested, the thugs will beat the shit out of you for no reason
A US man has been rejected in his bid to become a police officer for scoring too high on an intelligence test.
...police interviewed only candidates who scored 20 to 27, on the theory that those who scored too high could get bored with police work and leave soon after undergoing costly training.
The average score nationally for police officers is 21 to 22, the equivalent of an IQ of 104, or just a little above average.
"You're not going to let me call anybody?" she asks on the video. "I have a right to call somebody right now and I know that. Is this on the record?"
The footage documents Wiley attempting to read Garbarino her rights, but he runs out of patience and things get tense. He seems to forcefully put her in a chair.
"Don't touch me again. Get away from me," Garbarino says after a scream.
Then, Wiley walks over to the police camera recording the booking and turns it off. What happens next is a mystery, but when the video resumes the handcuffed Garbarino is sprawled on the floor and silently lying in a pool of her blood.
Another officer arrives and takes a cursory look before Garbarino is wheeled out on a stretcher. In addition to her bruised face, Garbarino's injuries also included two broken teeth.

Donnell Williams had just gotten out of the bath tub, wearing only a towel around his waist, when he turned the corner to see guns pointing right at him.
Officers were worried about their own safety because at the time it appeared Williams was refusing to obey their commands to show his hands. That's when they shot him with a Taser.
A teenage suspect who secretly recorded his interrogation on an MP3 player has landed a veteran detective in the middle of perjury charges, authorities said Thursday.
Once the transcript was revealed in court, prosecutors asked for a recess, defense attorney Mark DeMarco said. The detective was pulled from the witness stand and advised to get a lawyer. Perino, 42, was arraigned Thursday on 12 counts of first-degree perjury and faces as many as seven years on each count, prosecutors said. He was released on $15,000 bail.
The allegations "put the safety of all law-abiding citizens at risk because they undermine the integrity and foundation of the entire criminal justice system,"
I am wrting from Florida to express my disgust at the way Jared Massey, who committed no crime other than ask for clarification on a traffic citation, was tortured by one of your officers.
This man posed no threat whatsoever, and was traveling with his wife and infant child. I have never seen or heard of a more clear-cut case of police brutality.
After seeing the video I took it upon myself to read more about this case, only to be shocked to discover that this officer, whose conduct is a stain on the other men and women who choose the honorable profession of law enforcement, has not been dismissed, or even suspended.
After seeing this video, I have decided that I will never travel to the state of Utah for the remainder of my natural life, as the evidence suggests that visitors to your state are in danger of being tortured by your thugs.
Additionally, I have posted this video to my website, which provides analysis of current events to thousands of readers in just under one hundred countries worldwide.
I eagerly await the outcome of this case.

Rocio Palacios [...] and her husband, Erasmo, dropped their 6-year-old daughter off at school and had picked up their 22-year-old daughter to go out for breakfast when they saw the woman waving her arms at 53rd Street and Kedzie Avenue last November. The Palacioses, of Chicago, claim the woman approached their car, parked outside Manolos restaurant, leaned in to the passenger side where Rocio was sitting and asked Erasmo if he wanted oral sex for $20 or sex for $25. The couple laughed, realizing this wasnt a woman in distress after all. But within seconds, Chicago police swarmed the family car, hauling Erasmo Palacios out in handcuffs. He was charged with solicitation of a prostitute
Attorneys Lonny Ben Ogus and Joe Cavanaugh also want to know what happened to the familys 1983 Mercedes. It was impounded that November day and, Palacios said, his wife and daughter were even threatened with arrest as they tried to stop police from taking it, as they were left stranded that morning. The city wants more than $4,700 in towing and storage fees if he wants the car back.
City officials declined to comment on the status of the familys car and the Palacios case, while the undercover female officer involved in the arrest couldnt be reached.

A disabled former Parks Department enforcement officer has filed a complaint against cops who he says snatched him off his toilet and dragged him out of his apartment. Dominick Walters, 38, said he and his elderly mother feared for their lives when six city cops busted into their home on July 28 and arrested him. "I was on the toilet, and they busted through the door," said Walters. "My mother was screaming and trying to tell them that I am disabled, but they didn't listen," he continued. "One of the police officers karate-chopped me with his hand between my shoulder and neck. Then they beat my a-- from the top of the steps to the bottom."
