World Net Daily ran a piece Monday about Shreveport Police officers allegedly slamming and beating a motorist in the face and body more than 20 times — all for a broken taillight.

“In Shreveport, Louisiana, you can get “slammed to the ground face-first and pummeled by police officers” for that.

In fact, a federal lawsuit alleges, you can end up being “beaten and punched in the face and body more than 20 times, then arrested and hospitalized for severe injuries to [your] face and arm.”

That would be because you “resisted arrest” by driving  half a mile to a safe, well-lit area to stop for officers.

The incident was described by the Rutherford Institute, which represents Gregory Tucker, a young African-American who reportedly was driving a car in violation of the taillight requirement.”
