WA - Man whose arrest was filmed by "Cops" sues officers for brutality
A man apparently woken from a drunken stupor by Pierce County sheriff's deputies, repeatedly zapped with a stun gun and finally chewed by a police dog — all in front of a production crew from the TV show "Cops" — has sued the county and the officers, alleging brutality.
The deputies, accompanied by a K-9 officer from the Tacoma Police Department, were looking for an armed suspect in a car break-in when they came upon Aaron Otto Hansen, 34, of Roy, early on July 10, 2004.
Hansen, who did not commit the crime, was passed out drunk in a sleeping bag outside a relative's home in Lakewood south of Tacoma, one of his lawyers said. The "Cops" video footage of his arrest, obtained by The Associated Press, seems to support that claim:
His lawsuit, filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Tacoma, names Pierce County, Kolp, Martin, Karl, the city of Lakewood and the city of Tacoma.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
