Have you ever called the police on someone who wasn't breaking the law just to cause them trouble?

    Jury awards 4 cents to estate of black man killed by Florida deputy

    Jurors in Fort Pierce determined last week that St. Lucie County Sheriff’s deputy Christopher Newman had not used excessive force when he shot Gregory Hill three times during a confrontation in 2014, and that Sheriff Ken Mascara had been a bit negligent, according to The New York Times.

    The jurors determined that Hill was 99 percent responsible for his death because he was drunk when he was shot by Newman who was responding to a noise complaint.
    The news articles I've read so far are very light on details but being intoxicated in your own home is not a crime. And the police contact was initiated by a third-party calling and making a noise complaint

    I would not shoot a drunk.

    That's what pepper spray is made for.

    Article I read said it was originally $4, a buck a kid and towards funeral costs or something like that, but then they reduced it to only a penny for each.

    Gosh, after the bloodsucker attorneys get their cut what’s left?

    The title of this thread is quite intentionally deceptive.

    People call the police on neighbors who are disturbing the peace all the time. The dishonest racist who created the thread tried to claim it is not illegal to be drunk in one's own home which is obviously so, but the calls were actually for disturbing the peace by being overly loud.

    I get so fed up with these racist idiots who try to foster the notion that being black allows a person to do whatever they damn well please and any reaction to their bad behavior is racist.
