Why, you ungrateful old fart – you got a gift card!

Eugene Wright, 63, is suing the Meadville Police Department, Stairways Behavioral Health, and the Meadville Medical Center for wrongfully arresting and then drugging him last June.

    I would be cool with a gift card.

    Well, if the gift card started at least with the number “1” and had at least 6 zeros behind it before the period.

    That man is lucky he didn’t get a lead pill from the police.

    He’s lucky he didn’t receive a complimentary ass beat’n for good measure.

    He’ll get a nice settlement out of this but no one will be disciplined or fired.

    Another classic case of the powers of the state knowing better.

    Yeah Aesop had an short piece on this. I agree w/ him. All these bastards need to eat those gift cards. There should be jail time and unemployment involved as well as lottsa money.

    Let them off with a slap on the wrist, but apply it with a Louisville slugger.

    Funny how neither of the gift cards came from the PD.

    $50 at a steakhouse? Unless it’s a shitty steakhouse, $50 isn’t quite going to cover a meal for two. $25 at Walmart? Gee… thanks?

    They could at least have sent him home with a few dozen doses of Ativan.
