Doubt guards are trained for this kind of thing.

Which is probably part of why, when he was assessed by an actual medical professional at the start of this, she suggested he be sent to a different setting.

You can't survive a couple weeks without water, more like a couple days.

Probably more days depending on the person, but yeah I am wrong.

This is only the second case within the English literature of death because of benzodiazepine withdrawal.

So you were right after all!

Anyway, if you want to do the headline: "Man Dies After Jailers Overestimate Extent to Which He was Malingering, Fail to Recognize He Was Starving Himself," that's fine. Just skip all the bullshit.

What did they spray him with?

Totally overzealous. He didn't say "double dog dare".

Sometimes folks need arresting.

I have to admit that I laughed when they pepper sprayed him. That split second of surprise is just too much.

Take a spin.

Ignorance is your stock in trade isn't it.

If a cop pulls you over is him asking you to take your sunglasses off (in the bright sun) a "lawful order?"
post #3058 of 6095
No, of course not. What rational reason would a cop have to want to look at someone's eyes, anyway? It's not like eye color is used to identify people, eyes can evidence intoxication, etc.

Just had a cop try to get me to take my sunglasses off for about five minutes and then tell me he was going to give me a roadside field sobriety test if I didn't take my sunglasses off. I very politely told him I was complying with neither. I should make a youtube!
