I hope he wins his case. I think it is about time that the people in police depts., Jailers and turnkeys get what is long overdue. I have cops that are related to me, I would not turn my back to any of them, would not doubt they would shoot me. They are drunks and thieves. They steal in drug busts. And Laugh About It. I caught one of them a State Cop in a car with others drunk on his As- the others were too. I`ll help pay on this case. It would be worth the price. If it goes to court ( they man kill him ) I hope it is open to the public. Don`t ask who these relations are. Do you think I want to wake up dead?

I think this is truly sad and just represents the fact that officers of the law and political representative abuse their power while 'wearing' their elective or hired positions. This man was not allowed his rightful means of medical attention. He was treated worse than an animal, and believe me, I don't say that lightly, I am a huge animal advocate. He deserves everything he can claim and receive from the city AND county.

I hope they get what they deserve as well. I stood on my porch and watched a city cop beat a man he had pulled over and when I called the police station to report it by the time the state police got there he was done so it was like I lied. I do know what I saw, I just wish I had of had my camcorder with me. Its hard to go against them and win. This man isnt the only ones they have abused. I know alot of people they have done that way. They slap a badge on these jerks and they think they are Gods, and they have the right to treat all of us like crap. Then people wonder why the Corbin cops are talked about so much.

Bruce Rains is nothing but a thug. He is dangerous and once told me he thought more of animals than he did humans. Guy like that doesn't need to wear a badge. Course, you take the badge and gun off of him and he's nothing but a fat P.O.S.

I think it is funny. The News Journal had the story as well. If you look at their version, Smith was very drunk and fell on the cop.

Never let the details get in the way of making the cops out to be the bad guys.

Are you saying it was OK to cause his leg to get broken <#> and to Tase The Guy;plus what ?? happened at the jail and on the way there. If he fell out a F+++++ window on the cop that is no reason for this.
The broken leg (((((((( was caused by a door closing on it. Would never have happened if the other stuff had not happened. By process of events. Not scientific but is a factor. I hate drunks badly too. But it seems the cops like the badge better than sex. Common` you agree too. Just trying to get out of something you probably have done. I got a get out of Jail Free card for you.

yeah, my son was arrested "without incident" (according to the newspaper) by the Corbin City police, and when i went to the jail to see him, he had knots on his head, bruises on his face, a bruise from his elbow midway down his arm, and a broken hand. I wanted to file a complaint against them, but he wouldn't tell me which cop(s) did it, because he said it would just make it harder on him....so i hope the guy who is suing them winds up owning the police department

I'm saying you are jumping to conclusions. Somebody says the cops did such and such so it has to be true.
I don't deny that there are bad cops, like there are bad lawyers, bad doctors, bad teachers...
But there are more good cops than bad cops. I sure wouldn't have their job.

WTF,
Obviously the News Urinal (Journal) is behind the Times (Tribune) once again. The Urinal made it look like Hodge was innocent and is doing same now. They don't know what to do since the Times Tribune busted Hodge & is winning NATIONAL AWARDS.

I read about it in the Journal first. I think the Times got it from them and reprinted it but that is pretty common.
