It Ain’t Fucking Rapunzel, AND “It Ain’t YOU, Babe”

1damnit im madHave the police in the United States gone fucking nuts? I mean, forced colonoscopy in New Mexico because of “clenched buttcheeks”, assorted instances of tasering and beating, but now forced HAIRCUTS?

Am I the only one that finds it odd that white cops tied down a young black woman and cut off her hair-weave?
And to say her hair was a suicide risk…right, I found no instances of this when I searched. Besides, the “rule” was that “clip on” extensions had to be removed. This young victim’s hair was NOT clipped on, but SEWN into her hair.

WTF, American cops, what the unholy fuck?

Also, in other bullshit news, American “legal experts” are telling re-convicted-by-kangaroo-Italian-court-Amanda Knox to be a good compliant little girl and “stay where she is in Washington State”…not to flee the country to some extradition free spot.

Seriously? She is just the girl next door, it isn’t like she is a highly paid government contractor or a military member whisked away before local courts could grab and try them, is it? It isn’t like the US refuses to acknowledge world courts decrees about men with big guns; but a college girl abroad doesn’t have the legal moxie to claim protection from double jeopardy, does she? Nice to know, as has been the norm of late, that the US legal processes are in favor of sacrificing the innocent to pay for the sins of the guilty.

I just have one thing to say to those legal eagles telling her to stay in plain sight where she can be snatched and carried away: it ain’t YOU, babe, facing the circumstantial, bullshit music/evidence in a court with an axe to grind against Americans. They were not given a hotshot Marine pilot who CLEARLY was guilty of causing 20 deaths, but by gods, they intend to make mincemeat of this young woman’s life. If I were Knox’s parents? She would have VANISHED as soon as a new trial (with no new evidence, btw) was announced. And she would never have been seen again.

    According to the news story, the cracker lady cop who did this was fired for violating PD policy. Not sure what more you want, the hair will grow back, the lady cop will be living on the streets, sounds like things turned out the way they should.

    As for Amanda Cox, oh boy. Italian policy appears to be that if you can’t convict, try, and try, and try again until you can.

    • Gee, Badtux, are you saying the Italians were nun-zilla’d into their current take on “justice”, lol?

      As for the first story, I wish it had never happened —that no American should be treated in such a manner. As for the cracker cop, while I am sorry she is now jobless; she certainly should have known better. Cops have been getting away with outrageous shit for a while now; but I admit, I wonder if she didn’t get away with it because she is a female cop. I’ve seen male cops do worse and NOT be fired or disciplined. So either way, the story depresses!

    I am floored, appalled, and saddened by this story.

    • Yeah, I actually just sat staring at the screen for a while when I read the news-story. It was just so over the top NUTS, so mean-to-no-purpose.
