    Makes you sick. I have cared for old vets before and some of them are unruly and hard to care for, but using that kind of force on an old man like that is disgusting.

    But, hey, he was tough...and those cops want to go home at night....

    (And yes I have worked at a VA Hospital and seen some vets that were problematic. But they didn't need to be tased to be taken care of....)

    The police report is an example of what we in the criminal defense business call "testilying."

    Cops had no business there. Don't tell me the orderlies could not manage this "situation" better. I see a lot of people failing to do their jobs.
    Where can an old man can get his hands on a 12-in knife outside the center's kitchen?

    Park Forest is a suburb of Chicago. This incident is just another reason to steer clear of Rahm Emanuel's little totalitarian Illinois paradise.

    I think I'll stay out here in the Northwest in Free America.

    Clearly these cops were not racist....they've become equal opportunity thugs. Black, white, Hispanic, Asian, Native American it doesn't matter these days...we are all just a silhouette in a gun sight now. I guess the negotiating team was on the golf course.

    They will get out of it. They are trained observers...most of the eyewitnesses can be shown as amateurs and a well paid defense attorney can poke holes of doubt in their accounts. I am surprised they just didn't level the old guy with their new DHS surplus MRAV. It is getting really sickening.

    I would like to see that 95 year old vet use his M1 Garand on those cops.
