It’s hard to shock people in this modern wired world, but even the chief deputy of the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s office in Florida found the security camera video of a jailer dumping a paralyzed man out of his wheelchair appalling.
“It can happen to anybody at any time,” the man in the wheelchair, Brian Sterner, warned TODAY co-host Meredith Vieira on Wednesday in New York. “Hopefully, that’s what will come out of this, that this negative way of dealing with life and people will change.”The incident, captured on surveillance video and viewed by thousands on the Internet, occurred on Jan. 29 when Sterner was being booked in the county jail on a warrant for a traffic violation.

Then, THEN GET FREAKING ANGRY!!! HOW IN THE HELL CAN WE CONDEMN PEOPLE IN OTHER COUNTRIES WHEN WE TREAT OUR OWN CITIZENS THIS WAY!!!!
Bikers need to be hollering about this stuff the LOUDEST. How can we advocate for "BIKERS" rights and remain silent over the abuses of power over the powerless like Mr. Sterner and Hope Steffy???
Now if you will excuse me I need to tape a few 9 volt batteries together, go outside and punch out a tree.Add to Technorati Favorites
