Update: Jaywalking in Atlanta

From the BBC:

Officer Leonpacher told him he was under arrest and, the professor claims, kicked his legs from under him, pinned him to the ground and confiscated his box of peppermints.

Confiscated his peppermints.

This proves what I was saying the other day (as if further proof were needed.) The mentality and level of maturity of the average Atlanta police officer is roughly that of a child, a disturbed child--a spoilt, bratty, cowardly little schoolyard bully who beats up the smaller boys for their lunch money, or in this case, candy. How pathetic.
