Officer Benjamin Stanaland of the Orlando police department is a tyrant. He has twice been reprimanded for violating people’s constitutional rights, yet he still holds a job as a police officer.
In the first case, he arrested a man for refusing to give the officer his name in February of 2010.
In the latest case, used an unsterilized Q-Tip to test a motorist’s mouth for drugs without the man’s consent during a traffic stop. According to the law and department policy, officers must use sterilized gloves and agency-issued tongue depressors and swabs. Stanaland said he purchased the Q-Tips from a Walgreen’s pharmacy.
Why is he still working as a cop?
