      “His arm was hanging off the bunk in a very uncomfortable angle.”

      Therein lies the key, why would someone willingly or consciously leave their arm at such an angle.

      A sudden jolt or loss of equilibrium could cause it, say from the quick lash of a baton.

      I’m sorry but if you are stupid enough to talk back to or threaten a cop then you are asking for a world of hurt. Those bitches can get away with whatever they want…Even being polite won’t always keep you safe.

      Ahhhhhhhh… gotta love those “BOYS in blue”… To Protect and Serve… themselves of course! Their attitude has changed so much, I’d feel safer being protected by the ‘hood’ guyz! At least they have fashion going for them.

      The cops can obviously make up whatever scenario they want to excuse killing people in custody. And they do. All the time. Even when witnesses are present to disclose their lies, but especially when there aren’t.

      So let’s see. The other guy was at the victim’s house at a time he wasn’t supposed to be there, and the victim gets arrested for violating a protective order by being in his own house at the same time as the other guy remained illegally there? So someone can take out a protective order against you and then get you arrested by approaching you? I call shenanigans.

      @viveutvivas: I wonder how much the story will change by monday?

      His name does sound a bit “foreign” maybe they’ll say they caught a terrorist.

      Well he was only an assistant professor…I’m certain that the doctored autopsy report will show that he died of natural causes.

      Very sad. From various reports I’ve read it sounds like he and his estranged husband, Sunder Ganglani, were doing good things in their careers, but struggled with their relationship.

      Yale sucks. He should have gone to Stanford.

      Perhaps Queerty could spell mysteriously in the title correctly. Really, how embarrassing.

      Ok, let’s get back to reality. Mutual restraining orders are common in domestic cases. From what the article reports, the man was in his own home, so how he can violate a restraining order when his partner refused to leave. Calling BS on the police.

      This sounds like a situation where the professor didn’t understand just what he was getting himself when he said “I do” and “until death do we part”. A lot of gay folks who are rushing to the altar are finding out that their selfish, my way or the highway mentality does not fly in the eyes of the law. Once you say I do and sign on the dotted line you are no longer dealing with a one night stand who must leave after the climactic moment. You have to deal with his/her personality as well as their habits.

      He calls the cops to get his husband out of his house and HE ends up getting arrested makes me wonder was he a screaming Mimi who found the last nerve of the very people he called to “assist” in getting his ex to leave. Based on the report, it sounds like that is just what he was. Jail isn’t a pretty place to be and god help you if you are the demanding type who cant stand being around those whom you always thought beneath you.

      I find it interesting that not a word of this was mentioned in the NYT. (As far as I am aware.) Story. Just. Died. Contrast that with the black Harvard professor who was confronted by police a few years back at his house and got a beer with the president out of it.

      I guess us adjuncts are just so much chopped liver.

      @viveutvivas: An inaccurate comparison. Skip Gates is not just a “black professor” — he’s a nationally-known public figure in his own right. This gay adjunct is clearly not. It’s like comparing the non-coverage of a local theater actor to the overcoverage of Paul Walker’s death.
