Why you're not seen as Officer Friendly anymore Reason #218:

You're ignorant, incompetent, abusive assholes.
The officers told Meister to stop loading the boxes but because he was deaf, Meister did not hear the police officers' commands.

Officers Jeffrey Salmon, Jeffrey Tysl, Erica Bristow, and Mark Hultgren didn't realize Meister wasn't responding because he had a disability.

Meister tried to use sign language to communicate with police and one of the officers mistook his hand motions for aggressive force.

The officers punched Meister and kicked him and also allegedly shot him twice with a taser. Another officer then gave Meister a 'drive stun' to his abdomen.

The officers then allegedly beat Meister until he was unconscious reports

Officers then took Meister to a hospital where he was charged with assaulting police officers. The charge was later dropped and now the officers are facing a lawsuit.
