An Orange County, CA woman came home to find a car had crashed into her home, so she called an armed government worker to document it for insurance purposes. It was a decision she would come to regret.
According to an excessive force lawsuit filed by the woman, an AGW who arrived at her home became verbally abusive and when she looked at him in a manner the AGW didn’t like, the AGW commenced Hut! Hut! Hutting! her.
He “threw me to the ground and pounced his knees into my back . . . I remember shrieking in pain as he twisted my shoulder up past its normal range of movement until I felt and heard a snapping sound in my elbow.”
She was then “dragged into his police car, pushed inside and (thew AGW) slammed the door on my knee.”
The woman – who reportedly weighed about 100 pounds and thus presented a clear “threat” to the “safety” of the reportedly 300 pound AGW who Hut! Hut! Hutted! her – was subsequently taken to the hospital, where she endured surgery to repair the damage inflicted and was eventually presented with a bill for $300,000.
Naturally, she was charged with “resisting.”
The charge was subsequently dropped.
It’s possible the woman made some unfriendly comments – failed to show Expected Deference to the AGW. But the indisputable facts are: She wasn’t a criminal; she had merely summoned the the AGW to provide the “service” AGWs are supposedly there to provide to citizens. She was not armed.
Yet she was treated to a brutal smackdown by an armed male thug at least twice her size, out of all proportion to anything even alleged.
“Resisting”? This legalese gaslighting amounts to: Failing to go limp and fall on the ground immediately while presenting your exposed belly to be kicked.
To raise ones hands in an attempt to ward off an AGW’s blows is considered “resisting,” too.
Note that the woman was not charged with “assaulting” the AGW – or any other crime.
As Will Grigg famously – and rightly – put it: There is no situation so bad it can’t be made worse by an AGW. They are a real threat to our safety.
Avoid them as you would a bad neighborhood, a dark alley or a snarling, foaming-at-the-mouth dog.
