Don't Call 911

Here's another case of a naive person dialing 911 for help with a family member in need of medical attention. She probably thought she'd get an ambulance with some nice paramedics who would take her husband to the hospital where he would get medication and possibly counseling.

Instead, the police who responded to the call took the 62-year-old guy to jail, tied him to a chair, hooded him, and tortured him with pepper spray for 48 hours till he was dead. The death was ruled a homicide by the medical examiner, but the "law enforcement" officers responsible were not charged and (of course) the department was cleared of any wrongdoing.

So these guys are still walking around with guns and badges. In other words, if you call 911 in Lee County, Florida, these are the guys who might show up.
