Donald Akers had a really bad day on Mother’s Day. He and his wife, Janet, were driving to place flowers on his mother-in-law’s grave when they became the victims of an apparent road rage incident.
A driver of a Dodge Ram pickup, who apparently was unhappy with Janet for honking her horn at him when he wandered in to her lane of traffic, followed the Akers in to a parking lot where the driver proceeded to assault Donald with the butt of a gun, breaking teeth and his nose.
The Akers called 911, police arrived… and then proceeded to act like they were best friends with the man who hit Donald with the gun. Why?
Because the man who assaulted Donald was an off-duty U.S. Marshall. Janet Akers said,
“So the police came, and went over directly to them. And were talking to them, laughing, joking around.”
No charges were immediately pressed.
And the government wonders why people don’t trust the police? The good old boys network is still securely in place, and this is one of the biggest reasons why police brutality is a growing concern among the U.S. population. It is because these thugs are relatively untouchable.
What do you think? Is police brutality a growing problem? Comment below.
