There needs to be a law where when an elected official violates the law they have added charges, something like they have if you take advantage of an old person in Florida. There is nothing worse then when your trust is violated. It is worse then just being victimized by a career criminal. Same with bad cops, I need to know if I call a cop and let him in my house he isn't stealing my Rolex watch off the dresser, (it happened), when I am in the other room. Somewhere along the line we need to be able to trust someone. It is just not the case though.

They must pay for their lack of responsibility to our community and the individuals affected. If we trust the individual for their position, the standards and morals should the of the highest standards possible. Intended malice actions should be penalize to the greatest extend of the law or establish a punishment system for this type of folks.

If voting elected politicians who were forced to abide by the letter AND spirit of the Constitution, voting would be declared illegal.

Question Former prisoner sues hospital over taser incident

What about this one? What will be a settlement amount on this case? $15K or in the millions....

A former prisoner is suing an Orlando hospital where he was zapped twice with a Taser while strapped to a gurney.

The individual is suing Florida Hospital Orlando, two security officers, a nurse and nurse technician.

The lawsuit claims the staff involuntarily catheterized him, while he had the right to refuse the procedure.

Was taken to the hospital after he was arrested on a cocaine charge in 2005.

He refused to give a urine sample and struggled with the medical staff. The police report says that during the scuffle, an officer used a Taser on Wheeler who was cuffed and strapped down. Tests later showed he had no cocaine in his system.

Two juries deadlocked on whether the officer committed battery. All criminal charges against Wheeler were dropped.

The lawsuit filed in Orange Circuit Court seeks 15-thousand dollars in damages.
