The Most Disgusting Thing You Will Read Today

This is unreal.  Poor guy gets maced and beaten in his own home by police because they mistake him for a burglar, then he’s convicted of resisting, then he’s actually sentenced to jail..  the most troubling is what the Judge had to say.

Taking a few moments to collect his thoughts, Flournoy then addressed Sauceda directly. The dialogue of the trial was delivered in Spanish to Sauceda via translator Josefina Villanueva. Flournoy told Sauceda that because he did not take the stand in his own defense it was difficult for him to sympathize with his situation.

“I haven’t heard from you and I have no idea why you didn’t speak. That causes me some trouble. I don’t agree with the notion you are a victim in this case,” Flournoy said. “I think your actions put you and the officers in harm’s way. This could have been easily avoided.”

Had it not been for the jury’s note asking for leniency, Flournoy said he would have likely sentenced Sauceda to six months in jail.
