A group of (alleged—booyah!) illegal aliens in Florida ganged up and thoroughly beat down a cop (h/t Travis McGee). Yet another reason why we should be giving amnistía away at every street corner in town:
LAKE COUNTY, Fla.—Five men, including four illegal immigrants have been caught after cops say they attacked a Lake County deputy. It happened on Long Acres Road in Sorrento, just off State Road 46, Sunday night.
McMennamy said he was checking out a complaint of a loud party when 35-year-old Miguel Gomez threw a beer bottle at his car. McMennamy chased him down and hit him with a taser. The deputy said he was then surrounded.
McMennamy was punched above his right eye, hit with a beer bottle and even kicked in the jaw.
Before they took his taser and bullets, McMennamy tried to radio for help, but it didn't get reception.
Amazingly, he used his cell phone to call while he fought away the attackers. The Lake County Sheriff's Office says their motivation was murder; they were trying to pull the gun from his holster.
"This is a bad situation that could have been worse," said Sgt. John Herrell, Lake County Sheriff's Office.
