Brickbat: Kentucky Reign of Terror


Seal of Kentucky

David Gabbard thought he'd been improperly pulled over by a Kentucky State Police trooper, so he complained about his stop on Facebook. The next day, the trooper who stopped him and two others showed up at Gabbard's home. According to a federal lawsuit Gabbard has filed, when the woman who lives with Gabbard tried to record the confrontation, one of the troopers grabbed her phone. The trooper who stopped Gabbard then pulled off his badge and dared him to fight him. The three left only when one noticed video cameras at the front of Gabbard's home.
