First of all, Ken has been selected by the Supreme Court Press in Boston Massachuttes for “Writ of the Month”.
You can see their blog (with some very interesting cases) here on
one case I enjoyed reading was where a person was engaging in passive resistance during arrest and the officer repeatedly punched him and kicked him until he died while the officer shouted at him “spit it out” (refering to a bag of drugs.
I think it’s a clear first amendment violation and the officer needs anger management,because he was clearly out of control with rage but please don’t keep your thoughts and feelings to yourself, post them here. The 5th circuit said because the suspect was resisting arrest, the death was excusable. Well, maybe in the THEIR minds, but I think that officer’s got a whole lot of bad karma to make up. The law of the universe and Mother Nature, well, we know that she’s a b*****.
