Did the Salina Police have probable cause to use excessive force? If the man was observed trying to get into an ambulance did it occur to the police that he might already be in distress?

I hope that the police that used excessive force be brought to justice. If anyone had to witness the heartbreak of his mother, father, and daughter could not have understood WHY?? A meaningless death. It hard to believe that society will never change.

Two stories here point up something is wrong. One--Probation ordered for former Kansas jail officer for fondling female inmates, and Two--A man dies in a Salina hospital after being restrained by police. It is unfortunate that persons who want unquestioned authority gravitate to police duty. Was this man excessively restrained? Did the actions of the Salina police lead to his death? If the answer to these two questions is YES, then some deep investigating needs to be done and some police personnel need to be fired or reassigned.

The person that "investigates" it's own, is Lt.Gerry, he won't look into anything. He couldn't find his butt with both hands.

Its about time someone final looks into the salina pd. There are a couple officers that think they're above the law and now they are getting away with murder.

Perhaps they have been too busy looking for the English Teacher impostor that failed you. Salina must have a large red-neck population with the way you sound.

Wow, S.P.D. cops are just killing people and deer left and right these days. What's the death toll for this week? Hell these guys make the soldiers in Iraq jealous with all their civilian casualties. My Brother was killed by S.P.D on Thursday. All I can say to the police officer that fired at my brother and the incident commander is this: Does your badge make you feel safe? What about your gun and Kevlar? Well I hope they do, but what I have in store for you people... well they won't help you much. See ya soon !!!
