It's evident this young lady has some serious issues, maybe no home training! But Take a hard look into Officer Taso Karabelas, this officer has SERIOUS RAGE! Not to mention the superiority complex! Dont know how that ego even fit in a police car! People stop being afraid to lodge a complaint against aggresive officers maybe if a few that have had the Taso experience had done so, could have been a totally different outcome, this guy is a cowboy!! Guess what he's not the only one in the Town of Newburgh! Be careful a simple traffic stop could become a total nitemare with some of these CLOWNS!!!!

wonder what you would have done if that veh tried to run you over. the girl is seventeen but still a criminal!! what do you think an officer is going to do if you try to run them down,especially if you do not stop. sounds like you have more of a personal issue. taso was trying to protect himself and his fellow officer. police try to do their jobs and do not get paid enough to be bashed when trying to protect themsleves and others!
