Adam Greene Wins Civil Rights Suit: Nevada Police Beat Man In Diabetic Shock — And Pay $300,000 Settlement

He’s dogpiled on the ground and ….

A sixth officer, a Henderson police officer, then walks over and kicks Greene in the face multiple times, as one of the officers yells, “Stop resisting, mother fucker. Stop resisting, mother fucker!”

Once Greene is subdued, an officer discovers a vial of insulin on him and announces Greene “could be a diabetic.”

“I was confused, but I wasn’t resisting and I would think this would be incorrect and inappropriate behavior whether I was drunk … or not drunk.”

I’ll never understand why they beat you to cause you pain so that you will writhe, instinctively try to either grab the place that hurts or try to stop the person hurting you, and still they expect you to be still. Is that so they will have an excuse to say you “resisted”? And which command do they expect a person to follow…hold still, don’t move, get out of the car, yet don’t move in the process…how can you not move and get out of the car at the same time?
