    The travesty continues with voter registration changes, that is what needs to be knelt on.

    I’ve long contended that all police badges in America should be issued with numbers beginning with “00”, like James Bond, signifying a license to kill with impunity.

    Looks like the police in Windsor, Virginia are trying to take lessons from Derek Chauvin. From the NY Times April 10, 2021:

    “Caron Nazario, a Lieutenant in the U.S. Army Medical Corps, was driving to Petersburg, Va., from a drill weekend the night of Dec. 5 when he saw police lights flashing behind him. Too nervous to stop on a darkened road, Lieutenant Nazario, who is Black and Latino, drove about a mile to a gas station, pulled over and placed his cellphone on his dashboard, according to a lawsuit and video footage of the encounter. Immediately, two Windsor police officers can be heard yelling orders at him.

    “Get out of the car,” one yells as Lieutenant Nazario, remaining seated, repeatedly asks why he had been stopped and why the officers had drawn their guns. He positions his empty hands outside the window. “I’m honestly afraid to get out of the car,” Lieutenant Nazario says. “Yeah,” says one of the officers, Joe Gutierrez, according to footage from his body camera. “You should be.”

    Seconds later, Officer Gutierrez doused the lieutenant with pepper spray. Lieutenant Nazario’s hands remained up as he coughed and pleaded with the officers to undo his seatbelt and make sure his dog, Smoke, was not choking in the back. Liquid from the spray dripped down his hands and face."

    There’s more, of course, but the Lieutenant has now filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. The suit accuses the officers of illegally searching his car, using excessive force and violating his rights under the First Amendment. The lawsuit seeks $1 million in compensatory damages.

    That should be ‘Prosecution Rests’, yes?
