Political Blindspot – by James Achisa
A Florida police officer, 267-pound Trooper Daniel Cole, was recently cleared of any wrongdoing by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Questions were raised when he tasered a 20 year old handcuffed girl in the back as she fled. The tasering was caught on video showing officer Cole firing the taser at the handcuffed Danielle Maudsley. Maudsley was a mere 100 pound, while Cole outweighed her at two and a half times her weight. She was clearly no threat to him, unless he expected to die from exhaustion chasing her a few yards.
The encounter took place last September at the FHP Pinellas Park Substation. As Maudsley fled, the tasering prevented her from catching herself as her muscles involuntarily seized up. As a result, she fell to the concrete, and bashed her head. She suffered severe brain damage and has been in a persistent vegetative state ever since.
The video below shows Maudsley fleeing a back door of the substation with officer Cole following closely behind, with absolutely no need to taser her. It is clear that he only did this to inflict physical punishment on the small 20 year old.
Maudsley was initially arrested for her alleged involvement in two hit-and-run crashes and driving without a license.
Officer Cole brought her to the substation to complete his paperwork before taking her to the Pinellas County Jail. But as she entered the parking lot, she tried to make a run for it.
“What were you thinking? What are you, stupid?,” Cole can be heard asking Maudsley on the video.
“I can’t get up,” said Maudsley.
“I don’t want you to get up,” said Cole.
“I can’t get up,” Maudsley said again. The last words Maudsley has spoken since being tasered.
Maudsley’s mother said Cole should have used other means besides the taser to stop her daughter. “He was right behind her. He could’ve reached out,” Maudsley observed. “It was unnecessary.”
Defense attorney Kevin Haylsett was hired to pursue charges against the department.Hayslett said Cole violated his department’s taser policy which says clearly that “Fleeing cannot be the sole reason for the deployment” of the taser. “When you shoot someone in the back, and they’re running away, all that force — as you saw when Danielle’s head hit the concrete — that’s why they don’t allow you to do that, because you can have horrible tragedies like this,” Hayslett explained.
Maudsley’s mother said early on that the prognosis is not good for her daughter. Maudsley remained in a Fort Lauderdale rehab center which specializes in severe brain injuries and remained in a vegetative state until she died last month.
SPREAD THE WORD about this POLICE ABUSE of power. These rogue cops can only get away with these abuses if we allow them to!

I bet that this pig got free drinks for the night at the local cop bar…… I am surprised that this cop didn`t call for back up and then have 4 or 5 cops beat the crap out of her because she got tazed.
As J. Campbell states in his essay’s…….KILL THE Enemy Traitors….violence is all communist understand.
American men….we must wake up and slay the dayum oppressor
If that was my daughter I’d hunt that bastard cop down like I was hunting an animal. I wouldn’t stop until one of us was dead.
Americans live in a post constitutional, communist hell-hole.
It’s high-time to fix that.
That would be one dead mother f#@king pig if that were my daughter for sure. These criminal bastards are getting away with the murder of the citizens everyday now it seems.Time for the citizens to see these homicidal ,Maniacs for what they really are.hired mercenaries in squad cars on a power trip! I know ,there are good ones we are told,if there were they wouldn’t allow this to happen in the first place much less allow it to continue.They are hired enforcers and will do whatever they are told to do WTFU!
Bust both ankles and kneecaps, and dump him up in the mountains 100 miles from anywhere.
If he doesn’t starve to death first, the coyotes will get him.
Yes #1, I was thinking something like that too.
Death by revenge. The cop cannot surely expect a long life given the situation
