friend, what i am going to tell you is not something you will likely hear from anyone on this forum, nevertheless, it is the unfortunate truth. you are not going to see that cop answer for his crimes. period. there are so many protections and legal immunities shielding police from civil and criminal litigation, it's like an onion. go ahead, peel away. you may peel away every layer successfully, likely at great cost, but what have you got in the end? the same thing: wet eyes and nothing. the police are officers of the court. this is the reason why you never but never win in court if it comes down to your word against the officer's word. because guess who else are officers of the court: all bar attorneys. this includes ALL judges. their duty is to the court first. it's a sworn oath. the best interest of the court is in the lucrative business of prosecuting people brought before them. people don't just walk in and incriminate themselves and the court doesn't go looking for them. police bring them to the court. if they started prosecuting police, they would lose business. no corporation in the world is in the business of turning down profit, and the corporations that operate the courts, such as the "state of so and so" the "city of such and such" , and the "county of blah blah blah" are no different. the police bring them profitable business all day, every day. it's what they exist for. what do you do for them? how do you profit the court? "but", you may say,"the police exist to serve and protect. everybody knows that." is that right? well perhaps you should inform the supreme court of that because beginning in 1856 South v Maryland and in numerous cases up to the present day, they have decisively ruled that "police have no duty to protect any individual" and "the citizen has no right to expect protection by police from madmen and killers." i can tell you, friend, everybody DOES NOT know that. so what you are trying to accomplish is technically not impossible, but practically, it is impossible. let me paint a scenrio for you. you are a new york yankee baseball player. you want to take on the boston red sox all by yourself and you believe you can do it. they accept the challenge, so you go to boston. it's game day and you are standing in the batter's box at fenway park. you are the only yankee in the park. you may have a slight scattering of yankee fans in the stands, but they can not help you and will not be inclined to root too vigorously for you. everyone else in the stands are sox fans, hail from boston, and are religious in their love for the sox. every other player on the field and in the dugout are red sox and grew up in boston. all the managers and staff are red sox employees and are from boston. the umpires are all from boston and some are even ex-red sox players. you step up and the pitcher throws a strike. but you are determined. next pitch, strike. ok, this one is going out of the park. the pitcher winds up and lets it rip you start to swing just as ball beans you in the side and you fall down. it was clearly intentional. you know it, everybody who saw it knows it. and most of them don't seem to have too much of a problem with it. the tiny amount of protest you CAN hear is quickly drowned out by the cheering and hooting and hollering of all the native boston sox fans who are immensely enjoying the spectacle. you get up as the pitcher is staring you down and trash talking about your mother. the catcher is laughing at you. the other players are talking to each other and looking in your direction. you turn to the umpire and he just looks at you. "well?" you ask. "well what?" he says. "aren't you going to throw him out? he clearly beaned me on purpose." "sir, i'm having trouble understanding what you are saying. i advise you to get a manager to come out here and speak for you." you say, "i don't have a manager. it's just me." he says, " alright, then one will be appointed for you free of charge." and with that, he gives a whistle and a "come here" gesture at the sox's dugout and a rookie manager comes trotting across the infield while in the process of removing his red sox jersey. he approaches you, asks what happened, you tell him, he tells the umpire, "says our guy- ahem, the pitcher beaned him." the ump says, "this is a serious allegation. does he have any proof of this?" manager says, "there's the ball, right there where he says it landed after hitting him." umpire says, "circumstantial. we are in a ball park. balls can be anywhere, it doesn't prove he was hit with it." manager lifts your shirt and shows the umpire the swelling and bruising. the ump says, "how do we know he wasn't already like that when he got here?" i think you can see where this is going. needless to say, the pitcher wasn't even verbally warned not to do that again, and certainly not thrown out of the game.
