Happened this past Friday.

I do know this kid personally, I've been in school with him since Elementary school and he lives down the street from me.

So basically, news article says it all, but I'll give a brief run down for people who might not be able to click the link:

WILMINGTON ISLAND, GA (WTOC) - A Wilmington Island family is upset, after they say four Tybee Island Police officers beat their autistic son.

A broken tooth, scrapes and bruises and two puncture marks from Tasers are the only reminders Clifford Grevemberg has of his visit to Tybee Island Friday night.


Thoughts?

Fuck tha police.

Seriously though, it seems like someone sent around a memo to police stations everywhere that said "lets be dickheads now" or something. There have been a lot of incidents with police in Oregon recently too.
maybe if you had a
revolver
you'd
suck less

Tybee island sucks. I went there once and hated it......seriously.


Okay, now on topic......that's sad. Wait a minute. Why did they need his ID? I'm a bit confused?

EDIT: Oh wow. They couldn't even tell his family why he was arrested? Shit like this really pisses me off.

Holy hell... I'm autistic myself and the only run-in I ever had with the cops was when I was carrying an old microwave I found in the trash back to my house (they mistook me for a burglar). I was honest and cooperative with them, and they let me off without a hitch. (Can't believe it's been almost a year since it happened, feels like yesterday).

I bet you anything his family is going to sue the shit out of the department.

That's some fukcing bullshit right there. I don't see how this is any different than a gang of people randomly jumping an innocent civilian. They should have more repercussions than just losing their jobs.

Autistic or not, the cops weren't right. HOWEVER, If they were asking for ID, I don't understand why the kid couldn't show it to them or possibly explain why he doesn't have one. I think if this were to happen to anyone though, autistic or not, the cops shouldn't have beaten him.

Technically, they committed a felony. However the US has a ****ed up system where losing there jobs = jail time, in the case of cops acting out of character.

If he didn't give one, and then tried to escape, they have reason to physically force him down (professionally, of course). But the way the story was told, he didn't do anything. At most, if they were suspicious of him, they would've cuffed him. Not brutally beat and then cuff him. Douche bags.

His being 'autistic' shouldn't matter. In the US, no one is legally obligated to show a cop his/her license, and sitting on the curb doesn't provide a sliver of probable cause. Loitering, maybe, but that's a misdemeanor.

Hmmph. I used to live in Brunswick, about two hours from Savannah. One of the local cops kept after me for a week and a half because I was speeding (I was wrong there, I admit) but I didn't let him search my car. Fortunately, I talked to someone at the station and the last thing I heard was that he was on 'indefinite administrative leave'.

I remember seeing a vid on YouTube where a SWAT team busted down someone's door, shot their two dogs, and then arrested them on suspicion that he was a 'major drug dealer'. It turned out that he had a small bag of pot or something.

Where have you been?

Police are always fail.

I got arrested the other day for speeding. But he let me out of his car after 20 minutes of yelling at me about responsibility and respect...

It was a highway patrol man and he was a complete dick. I wasn't even ****ing speeding. My court date is June 3rd and I'm pleading not guilty.

Cops are out of line. The majority of them are power hungry assholes.
I have met numerous local police and only maybe 2 of them were in any way decent human beings. The rest were arrogant stuck up pricks.


Anyways, back OT, I really hope those cops lose their jobs and are ****ing exiled.

I have Asperger's Syndrome, and life is tough enough as an autistic person, without the polis treating oneself like this.

It's disgusting, the polis in question should be beaten and tasered.
#25
It's weird, I always hear all these stories about cops harassing and beating innocent people, but every cop I've met has been very nice. I've been pulled over past my driving curfew, with an illegal passenger in the car, and after running a stop sign and the cop let me off with a warning. I've had another cop help push my friend's car when it broke down. Maybe it's just the cops around here, but I've never met a mean cop.

EDIT: This story is disgusting though. If this is all true, those cops are pathetic gang members with badges.

It's a well known fact there are only two good cops in the world

..And they're Danny Glover & Mel Gibson.

There was a special needs kid who was a few years below me when I was in high school; the poor kid is such a nice guy, he just wants to be everyone's friend. I saw in the local paper a couple of weeks ago he had been beaten up and robbed of his bus money when he was on the way to the shops to buy new socks. His mother said that the event robbed him of his independence because he is now too scared to leave the house. People sicken me.

It's things like this that remind me of a joke I heard once.

"My cousin is a policeman, he says every day he regrets not being a fireman. Why? Every time there's an incident, the firemen show up and everyone's happy, cheering, they get a hero's welcome. THen the police arrive and are greeted with 'what do you want?'"

And shit like this is why. I have to agree with his brother, regardless of anything, four cops and a taser is sick overkill on an lithe, unarmed teenager. There are some good cops, but this kind of stuff has just been happening too much lately.

He did instead, apparently he had a warrant. They didn't even run any checks. Police generally don't seem sympathetic to my brother, because he isn't nice to them (mostly because they've tasered him).

One of my best friends has Aspergers, a mild form of autism (you probably know this but others may not). I've had to stick up for that kid since I first met him. He's really a great guy, very talented artist as well, but the dude just fails at social interactions. I get a lot of shit for defending him. I can't imagine how difficult it must be to have an autistic sibling. I hope you two are doing well

Edit: I also would like to apologize if I've ever made any retard jokes that've offended you. I hate doing that when I don't know better...
