Amputee abused by police
« on: July 08, 2010, 09:18:18 AM »
Wow, Steve is usually the one with news story links!  I beat him to this one!

Police arrested a man, beat him, "ripped his prosthetic off" and locked him in a cage for a day.....

I missed that one. I'm always a bit weary of radical websites (as they even mention on their website title...'a radical newsletter') whether they are far left or right but even if it was sensationalized I bet the story was harrowing.
Where ever I go, I'll always have one foot in Ireland   /   I'm not a complete fool. Some parts are missing.
