I gotta say, I'd have a hard time controlling myself too

Greg Hallgrimson, the former police chief of Greenwood, has pleaded guilty to assaulting a handcuffed man who was being held in a police station for allegedly trying to drown his own infant daughter in an icy pond. 

Hallgrimson, 51, entered a guilty plea in the Western District of Missouri on Wednesday morning, according to court records. He was indicted by a federal grand jury with violating the civil rights of a man identified in court documents as “J.Z.” by throwing him to the ground and striking him in the face while he was restrained in a chair.

  1. In better times, the courts would have just thrown this out and chalked it up to "human nature" and left it at that. God I long for those times.

    1. Same reason I cannot be a cop. Dude would have gotten a swimming lesson in the same pond with as much weight as I could find tied to his feet.

  6. From the article: "Zicarelli, meanwhile, remains in Jackson County jail on pending felony charges of domestic assault and child abuse." What about attempted murder!?

  8. In Texas there was always a defense of" He deserved killing". That seems to apply here.

    1. Isn't there a line in a Clint Eastwood movie that goes something like: "some people just need killing"?

  9. Justifiable. The only crime (on the sheriff's part) that I read there, MIGHT be littering.

  10. But where are all the "if I had my way. I'd kill every cop" corksoakers that magically comment on every post referencing police?

  11. The sheriff could sue the city and get a jury trial. No way would the local jury do anything but reinstate him
