"Take a look at the lawmen/ Beating up the wrong guy..."

Okay, so we can debate about the Gates case, but I'm going to say these cops in Mobile, Alabama could have handled this situation differently...

"Police in Mobile, Ala., used pepper spray and a Taser on a deaf, mentally disabled man who they said wouldn't leave a store's bathroom."

The guy was feeling sick while in the Dollar Store, so he went to use the bathroom. After about half an hour, the store employees did what anyone would do when someone's in the bathroom for too long- they called the police. The cops came to the store and tried knocking on the stall door. When that didn't work, they did what anyone would do in that situation- they resorted immediately to extreme force: they sprayed pepper spray under the door, dragged the guy out and tasered him. But here's the thing that gets me: After the cops discovered that the man is deaf and has the mental abilities of a ten-year old child, they again did the reasonable thing- they charged him with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and failure to obey a police officer.
Here's an interview with his family. You get no points for correctly guessing his ethnicity.

And one bright spot: a Judge threw the charges out.
