Askew parks on sidewalk, gets tased, lawyer says police lied.

First things first. Marvin Lewis' Cincinnati Enquirer chat is transcribed on the net.  

Second thing.  Mathias Askew, the guy that went on a rampage because of a parking ticket, hired an interesting lawyer.  Ken Lawson.  Some of you may know Lawson as one that picks up some of the more interesting and controversial court cases in Cincinnati.  In my honest opinion, having Lawson as a lawyer is like having the Ponson brothers as agents.

But is this something new; criminalizing the Cincinnati police?  If the city can do anything, it's make the cops look like bad guys while these elite leaders scratch their heads saying, "duh, how do we fix this crime problem.".

Anyone want to guess the first cut?
