…when the people you tried to rob at gunpoint use the gun you brought to intimidate you.
Not having all the details, I can’t say that this suit is completely frivolous - the allegations that the plaintiff’s lawyer are outlining may well be serious enough to merit consideration. Without the evidence to actually judge, I can’t say. I do suspect that the bar to prove such will be so high that it would take a tape of a beating like that administered to Rodney King to get any jury to buy it.
That’s for the majority of this suit. But claiming emotional distress because they disarmed you, and then pointed the same fucking gun you brought to point at them? WTF? If the rest of this suit is actually of the piece with this reasoning (as I suspect it might be.) it really makes one wish that filing fees, etc, weren’t waived for prisoners.
