And they wonder why no one respects police anymore

Blain Barnett aquitted in brutal attack on motorist

A McIntosh police officer videotaped Tasering and beating a man he dragged from a pickup truck during a traffic stop in March was cleared of criminal charges this week.

A Washington County grand jury found that the allegations of assault and harassment against Blaine Barnett were not sufficient to warrant prosecution, according to District Attorney Spencer Walker

In May, Barnett was placed on administrative leave after he fired a gun at a motorcycle during a police chase. The bike never wrecked and the driver was not injured. Barnett's current status with the department was unclear Thursday.

Mr. Barnett has an upcoming date with KARMA. I hope it's caught on video tape.
