A judge dismissed a felony charge against a McAlester police officer.

Sterling Taylor is seen in surveillance video using a stun gun to subdue Nakina Williams while booking her into the Pittsburg County Jail in 2012.

The video shows Williams spitting on Taylor before being stunned. A judge ruled there is not sufficient evidence to charge the officer. Prosecutors plan to file an appeal.

I still don't see what the problem is. Maybe a rap in the teeth would have been more acceptable to some folks. Why do people feel that out of control Inmates, Convicts and Criminals need to be treated with Kid Gloves? Maybe we should give them awards for the Nastiest Crime in Tulsa County................

Judge Tim Mills ruled that there wasn’t enough evidence to charge McAlester police officer Sterling Taylor, who is seen in the video shooting a taser point-blank into the breasts of a handcuffed woman.

Even the OSBI had the crooked cops dead to right, but apparently you can still buy judges in small towns for cheap.
