A Boulder, CO woman has filed a lawsuit against the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office and five armed government workers who strapped her to a chair, put a bag over her head and then repeatedly Tazered her.
News story here.
The slightly built 34-year-old, Lauren Gotthelf, had been brought to jail over a misdemeanor smoking where-not-allowed charge and for allowing her dog to be off-leash.
Nothing violent or even serious.
But she refused to sign the ticket – which is a serious affront to the Authority of AGWs – and for that was Hut! Hut! Hutted! off to a cage, where her further refusal to be sufficiently submissive – by questioning the AGWs – resulted in the incident caught on video (below) that is the focus of her federal lawsuit.
A burly and tatted thug can be seen shoving Gotthelf’s bagged head backward while other AGWs shout the usual “stop resisting” – to a woman strapped to a chair – as they apply the agonizer and brutally manhandle her.
The AGWs claim Gotthelf made “suicidal” statements – the basis for putting her in the chair – but there is no evidence to support this and even if true, how is it helpful to torture a suicidal person?
How is it justified?
Gotthelf was kept in the chair for four hours, according to news coverage.
The AGWs you see in this video are still walking the streets of Boulder.
