MAN TASED BY BORED UTAH COP...AND GETS $40,000!

This man is vacationing with his pregnant wife and baby when he is pulled over, tasered and detained and after refusing to sign a ticket during a traffic stop. Welcome to America! 8:52 Officer changes his story, lying to his superior. What did Jared Massey do with the money? He made this site w/ a portion of the 40,000, what a bad ass http://theclymb.com/invite-from/rulonhardy ------------------- THE FINAL RESULT: Man shot with Taser during traffic stop outside Vernal gets $40,000 settlement: Jared Massey, the motorist who was shot with a Taser during a traffic arrest and who subsequently filed a lawsuit claiming the officer used excessive force, has accepted a settlement of $40,000. Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Jon Gardner used a Taser on Massey on Sept. 4, 2007, during a traffic stop outside Vernal. Massey refused to sign a speeding ticket and argued with Gardner, who ordered Massey out of the car. After Massey did not comply with commands to put his hands behind his back, Gardner used a Taser on Massey. An unhappy Massey posted the videotaped incident from the squad car's dash cam on YouTube, which prompted a huge outcry from the public. Some people even threatened violence against the trooper — which prompted Massey to issue a public statement calling for people to "have some common decency" and stop making threats. The Department of Public Safety investigated the situation and cleared Gardner of any wrongdoing in handling an uncooperative motorist. He was, however, required to take a verbal communications course before returning to duty. Massey pleaded guilty in Uintah County's Justice Court to a reduced speeding charge and paid a fine of $107. However, Massey later filed a federal lawsuit claiming Gardner had used excessive force against him. ------------------------------------ From Deseret News archives: Man shot with Taser during traffic stop outside Vernal gets $40,000 settlement Jared Massey, the motorist who was shot with a Taser during a traffic arrest and who subsequently filed a lawsuit claiming the officer used excessive force, has accepted a settlement of $40,000.

Story continues below "We think this is a legally defensible case because Trooper Gardner acted reasonably to avert a volatile and potentially dangerous confrontation on the side of a busy highway," Assistant Attorney General Scott Cheney, who represented Gardner, said in a statement. "We recognize, however, that this is a close case," Cheney said. The decision to settle was made by the Utah Attorney General's Office, the Utah Highway Patrol and the Utah Risk Management Fund, all of which agreed that this was the "best compromise to protect taxpayer resources." "This settlement was the most efficient resolution of what would be lengthy and expensive litigation of a strongly disputed claim," Cheney said. Massey was unavailable for comment Monday.

Shooting of "Cop Killer" Captured on Bodycam Caution - Graphic Violence
Caution - Graphic Violence On the morning of Oct. 26, Christopher Chase, 35, dressed in body armor and camouflage and a rifle, told witnesses in Southeast Albuquerque to call police and that he was waiting for them. He then fired upon an officer and managed to steal the officer's police cruiser, beginning a 16-mile police pursuit that eventually ended when Chase crumpled in the cruiser against a gas pump at Fourth and Montano NW — all amid gunfire from multiple officers. Chase had shot three Albuquerque police officers, who received minor injuries, and one Bernalillo County sheriff's deputy, Robin Hopkins, who is undergoing a lengthy recovery for a shattered femur. The autopsy, released Tuesday by the Office of the Medical Investigator, gives some insight about Chase's final moments. APD officials have not confirmed that they shot Chase, though they did confirm that they shot at him and that he had gunshot wounds when officers pulled him out of the wrecked APD vehicle. The several hours of video from officers' lapel cameras show a chaotic scene, with at least three dozen shots fired at Fourth and Montano at the end of the chase. Officers can be heard shouting expletives and instructions to each other as they try and comprehend the fast-moving situation. One video shows APD officer Daniel Morales as he gets shot in the leg, and another shows officers discussing how Chase had "half his head blown off" after the dust had settled. A gruesome shot shows a bloody Chase slumped over the steering wheel, blood splattered over the interior of the car. Officers can be seen running from vandalism and breaking-and-entering calls all over the city in response to a "shots fired" call blasted over their radios. Adding to the complication was an incorrect address that dispatchers could be heard repeating several times throughout the chase. Interim Police Chief Allen Banks said a witness told 911 dispatchers that Chase was waiting to ambush officers at Broadway and Cesar Chavez. In fact, Chase was waiting at Broadway and Iron, catching the first responding officer off guard. Until Tuesday, APD had released little information officially since a short press briefing the day after the shootings. The department had deemed all Journal public records requests about the shooting as "under review." The autopsy report showed Chase had three gunshot wounds on his neck near his sternum and another from a bullet that entered near the back of his head. Also, a bullet entered Chase's upper back, and he had two more gunshot wounds to his left arm. Chase also had a gunshot wound on his scalp, a "gaping" laceration that measured 6 inches long and 4 inches at its widest point, according to the autopsy. Chase, who had "Cop killer" tattooed across his knuckles, had no drugs in his system, the OMI found. The investigator tested for marijuana, methamphetamines, cocaine and opiates. Investigators also did not appear to find anything else irregular about Chase physically. All indicators, from the surface of his diaphragm to cardiovascular system, appeared normal, according to the report. Investigators commented several times throughout the 27-page report that Chase's brain was "extensively lacerated" from at least two of the shots, preventing them from tracing the trajectories of individual bullets. In addition to the gunshot wounds, Chase also sustained blunt-force injuries to his head and upper left arm, the report found. APD spokeswoman Tasia Martinez said Tuesday the shooting is still under investigation, and the department is waiting on the results of ballistics tests to determine how many officers fired and who they were. "We do not know how many officers fired their weapons yet," Martinez said in a text message. Martinez did say that six officers were placed on leave after the shooting, a standard practice for officer-involved shootings. The department did not respond to questions about the officers' names or how long they were on leave. Martinez said the autopsy will be included in the completed case report. She couldn't say when the department's investigation might be completed.
