Fresno Calif. police drown man with garden hose after tasering and hogtying him

"(NaturalNews) The Fresno Police Department (FPD) in California is the subject of a new lawsuit alleging extreme abuse by some of its officers that ended in a man dying. According to Courthouse News Service (CNS), unnamed officers repeatedly tasered Raul Rosas, a father of several small children, pepper-sprayed him, threw him to the ground, and ultimately drowned him with a garden hose after responding to a domestic disturbance call back in the summer of 2011.

Filed by the Claypool Law Firm in Pasadena, the suit claims that an unnamed officer tasered Rosas for at least ten minutes before "hog[tying] (him) with his ankles tied to his handcuffs behind his back." The officer proceeded to slam Rosas down onto the ground, pressing his knee into Rosas' back. When Rosas asked for water, the officer brought over the garden hose and essentially tortured Rosas with it, spraying it in his face until he could no longer breathe.

Ignoring pleas from nearby neighbors to cease, as Rosas was obviously no longer breathing, the officer continued to run hose water over the man's face. Not long after, at least 15 additional deputies and officers reportedly arrived on the scene, upon which they finally decided to try to help Rosas. But by this time it was too late, as Rosas' pulse had stopped, and efforts to resuscitate him were ultimately unsuccessful.

I've said this repeatedly and in all sincerity, and with great sadness, cops will soon be treated as violent criminals who will be killed on sight unless they stop this fascist, murderous behavior.
We outnumber uniformed thugs hundreds to one. And we have lots of weapons.
My son is a cop who would never engage in such insane sadistic perversity.
