89. First, it wasn't shoplifting. Second, being convicted of shoplifting doesn't deserve this sentence.

By Wal-Mart rules, he wasn't shoplifting. Hypothetical speculations about other laws in other states are largely irrelevant, unless the cops were trained in one state and transferred shortly before this, and the cops would still be wrong, just more excusably wrong.

By common-sense observation, he wasn't attempting to HIDE anything, he was attempting to put it somewhere that he could let go of it. It wasn't hidden, it was fucking sticking out of his pants.

As far as I know, there is NO crime in the American criminal justice system that calls for cops to systematically attempt to permanently damage your spinal column.

And, there were clearly other people there who SHOULD have been arrested for assault (i.e. everyone who might have trampled the kid).
