A Florida cop once named "Officer of the Year" was arrested by federal agents for distributing child porn -- and uploading the smut on the job, court documents show. Port St. Lucie Officer Michael Harding was charged Wednesday with sending and receiving child porn after undercover Homeland Security investigators discovered his filth-ridden account on the app Kik messenger, authorities said.
Until I watched the video, I thought maybe there wasn't much to complain about with this story. A year-old girl is facing a felony battery charge from a curfew violation incident in which a city police officer struck and pepper sprayed her after she bit him — actions shown in a police videotape released Thursday. The video changed my mind.
The year-old girl who was pepper-sprayed by Maryland police has spoken out, sharing her account of what happened Sunday afternoon at a press conference with her mother and attorney Thursday night. Although the teen appeared at the evening press conference, her name has not been released and Ficker has asked that the media refrain from trying to identify her. The teen said she "stood her ground" when the officers told her she was being detained and that she was "a little dizzy" and everything was "blurry" after she says she was knocked out from colliding with a car. However, on police bodycam video released by Hagerstown police yesterday, a motorist is heard telling police that the teen hit the side of his vehicle with her bicycle.
Also, he was wearing protective gloves to guard against bites at the time. She looks like she weighs about pounds…soaking wet. You mean to tell me that officers are not taught any techniques to subdue women or to subdue frail people?

Lately the news has been throwing stories at us about the police using tasers and pepper spray during difficult arrests. The general point of the reporting is to churn up outrage about police brutality and excessive force. I think the videos of the latest incidences should be used as training videos on how you should treat violently stupid people.
A large man using excessive force against a child? A young woman out on the street about 2 a. The second police video of the July incident released last week raises about as many questions as it answers.
Police in Fort Pierce, Fla. Shakieria Anquanette Shan Long now faces felony battery charges after becoming enraged that Eugene Sylvester shunned her screaming advances, according to a police report obtained by the Smoking Gun website. After both were drinking at neighborhood barbecue, Long followed Sylvester home, "screaming that she wanted the victim to have sex with her," the report said. When he went into his bedroom and closed the door, Long stormed in armed with a knife and began "jabbing" at his throat, a witness told police.
