US Deputy Marshals Sean Franklin and Christopher Wallace allegedly do a false arrest with excessive force
Case: WRIGHT v. U.S., Case No. 10-01220-CV-W-SWH (W.D. Missouri, September 6, 2012)
What happened: The US Deputy Marshals approached the wrong guy at a basketball game, gun(s) drawn and out of uniform. They attacked, electroshocked and arrested him, claiming that they could legitimately do this because the guy under attack (that is, the plaintiff) backed up when they attacked him and allegedly “cocked his arm” in response to their attack.
Decision: No qi for Franklin and Wallace. If the attack went down as plaintiff and his witnesses say it did, then they behaved badly, clearly violating 4a.
