I'm a strong supporter of law enforcement and usually don't get too worked up if someone resisting arrest gets some healthy bruises. However, even I think there are times where they go too far and here is an example.
A 21-year-old woman told police Saturday that a man grabbed her off Howard Avenue and raped her behind a building during the Gasparilla festivities.Great job, guys. Lock up the victim why don't ya? Oh, that's right, you did lock up the victim. Some acts of brutality don't even involve touching the subject.
But officers investigating the case arrested her after learning she had an outstanding warrant from her teenage years for failure to pay restitution.
She spent the next two nights in jail.
