We've all seen what idiots drunk people can be and we all know about the lives they endanger on the daily because of their stupidity. Yet, because we have politicians who often get shit-faced (amongst other things) on the side themselves, for the most part our laws continue to remain lax when it comes to imprisoning drunks who maim or worse yet, kill innocent people.
So what happens when a you're a cop just doing his job responding to an out-of-control drunk woman in a bar? Who won't listen to your clearly spoken directions to quit acting like a fool and get in your squad car? You taser her stupid ass. Seven times if need be. And that's exactly what Officer Rich Kovach did. And now a good officer gets suspended for doing the right thing.
(CNN) -- An Ohio police officer has been put on paid administrative leave after his own police cruiser's dash camera captured him using a stun gun to subdue a handcuffed woman, an attorney for the city of Warren, Ohio, told CNN on Thursday.The lesson here? Go out, get drunk, act a fool, resist arrest, file a lawsuit claiming police brutality (which Im sure Heidi will) and become rich. And just in case poor Heidi thinks she's in this alone, the liberal mafia has already announced that they have her back.
Warren City police are investigating a September 2 incident in which the officer repeatedly used a Taser to control the woman, who police allege was wildly out of control after being forced from a bar.
According to Officer Rich Kovach's own police report, he shocked Heidi Gill, 38, seven times -- twice after she had been handcuffed.
In the report, filed September 4, Kovach describes responding to a "fight/disturbance inside the bar" and finding a belligerent Gill, who began cursing, refused to give her real name, then tried to flee.
