When Maurice Clarrett was arrested a few years ago after a long police chase, he had an AK 47, 9mm pistol, sword (katana extremely dangerous) and was wearing body armor too.

He violently resisted arrest and even spit on police but not a hair on his head was harmed.

I believe I see a bit of a double standard.

Is not a 235 lb raging man more of a threat than this woman?

Not sure if Maurice brandished a weapon at the time of his arrest. This woman had, according to her husband, specifically threatened suicide by cop several times in the past. If she pointed a gun at them, she was asking to get shot.

Maurice was tasered repeatedly because he was beating the hell out of trough feeder. I am no fan of Maurice but it.brought a smile to my face to know.that a glorified tax.collector got.beat everytime the taser.cycled off.

On January 1, 2006 Maurice robbed two people outside of the Opium Lounge Dance Club brandishing a 45 caliber pistol.

During the early morning hours of August 9, 2006 Maurice made an illegal U turn, lead police on a chase that ended in a restaurant parking lot. Police were forced to place a towel in Clarett's mouth to prevent him from spitting on them, police used Mace to subdue Clarett because the body armor made the Taser ineffective. Clarett was carrying a AK 47 variant, two hand guns, a two swords.

Given the armed robbery charge, Police would have been justified in using lethal force on this huge man who was twice the size of this woman and heavily armed.

I believe that if Maurice Clarett had not been a local celebrity he would have been another case of "suicide by cop."
