2010 Tennessee Code
Title 39 – Criminal Offenses
Chapter 13 – Offenses Against Person
Part 3 – Kidnapping and False Imprisonment
39-13-304 – Aggravated kidnapping.
39-13-304. Aggravated kidnapping.

(a) Aggravated kidnapping is false imprisonment, as defined in § 39-13-302, committed:

(1) To facilitate the commission of any felony or flight thereafter;

(2) To interfere with the performance of any governmental or political function;

(3) With the intent to inflict serious bodily injury on or to terrorize the victim or another;

(4) Where the victim suffers bodily injury; or

(5) While the defendant is in possession of a deadly weapon or threatens the use of a deadly weapon.


These cops are being charged with kidnapping using a deadly weapon for doing this shit while in possession of their police issued service weapons.

For some reason thar makes this so delicious to me.

All the time we see cops get special treatment with respect to gun laws.  The ability to possess assault rifles, high capacity magazines, etc., when they are banned for everyone else.

Here, their possession of their service weapons gets them extra felony charges.

I just fucking love that.

  1. Seems to me several of these would apply as well, such as 4).
    But yeah, I hear you. Once again, cops and politicians should need to follow the same set of rules as everybody else.

  2. Result will be even lower recruitment for the police. Allegedly most of the individuals involved were hired after a lowering of standards.

    Similar thing happened in Chicago. Back in the late 90’s, there was a big stink about minorities not advancing. The tests and qualifications were ‘racist’. So they established what they called ‘merit’ promotions. The theory being that if you did a good job but couldn’t pass the test, you could still get promoted. What actually happened was that MOST of the people that ended getting advanced were the ones w/ political and/or social connections in the dept. Now the majority of the upper echelon are repeat ‘merit’ promotions w/ no clue how to do their assigned jobs.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
