"It's not a crime to be disturbing or obnoxious. That's not criminal. There are no 'manners police,'" said Sarasota attorney Andrea Mogensen, representing 29-year-old Jason B. Dragash, of Sarasota Florida.
Unfortunately, no one told that to Officer Scott Patrick of the Sarasota police. Acting as a "manners policeman," the cop dealt out a vicious beating to the 29-year-old, all because he was allegedly acting boorish towards two women in a club.
The Herald Tribune reports:
According to his report, Patrick was flagged down around 3 a.m. by a woman outside the club, Alexandra Vitale, who told officers an intoxicated man inside was harassing her and her sister.If the police have nothing to hide, why won't they release the video of this beat down?
Note, Dragash was not charged with simply "resisting arrest," but "obstruction without violence," a completely ridiculous "crime" which can be tacked onto anyone who doesn't provide the police with complete, immediate submission, in precisely the way the police wish them to comply.
