When a Victoria, Texas, police officer stopped Pete Vasquez, 76, for an expired inspection sticker, Vasquez pointed to the dealer tag on the car and tried to explain that it was legally exempt from inspection. But Nathanial Robinson wasn't hearing any of it. He grabbed Vasquez to handcuff him, and when Vasquez pulled away, Robinson tried to push him down on the hood of his patrol car, then tossed him to the ground and Tasered him twice.
It took a jury 26 minutes to decide that Jonathan Vanderhagen wasn't guilty.
A court ruled that officers did not have enough information to know whether or not stealing violates the Constitution.
This vote is "a hopeful sign that the harmful policies of marijuana prohibition will soon be a relic of the past."
Jonathan Vanderhagen believes a judge doomed his son to an early death. The judge says Vanderhagen's Facebook posts were intimidating.
