The fact that everyone has a cell phone now means that when there’s a fight or police brutality, more often than not, someone will be on hand to document it. The down side, apparently, is that sometimes you can become part of what you’re trying to document, which apparently Dallas Taylor and Jake Duncan of Maylene and the Sons of Disaster found out the hard way on Saturday (12), while videotaping interactions between police and drunk patrons at a dance club. Here’s what the post on Taylor’s Facebook page says:
Last night 12/12/2015 Dallas Taylor from the southern rock band “Maylene and the Sons of Disaster” was video taping people coming out of a restaurant/dance club drunk trying to fight cops. He started to video tape, and was attacked by one of the drunks. Jake Duncan our guitarist ran over to try and calm the situation and break up the fight. Jake Duncan, and Dallas Taylor were then attacked by police officers and were victims of police brutality. Jake Duncan was repeatedly getting his head slammed in the pavement, and Dallas Taylor was thrown to the ground with his knee cut open. Dallas Taylor was just trying to document the situation as people kept yelling “[email protected]”k your country and F”@K cops”. The cops did not arrest one drunk person or any of the ones that were trying to fight cops. Dallas Taylor was detained for around an hour and Jake Duncan who did nothing wrong in this matter was arrested on Disorderly Conduct. His bail in the picture above was $358.45. Not counting on what it’s going to cost getting a lawyer to fight these corrupt cops. Dallas Taylor’s phone was also stolen in the altercation. If you could please help us out we would appreciate it. We never ask for help but what happened is wrong and we do not have the money to pay these fees. Any little bit helps.

Thank you so much for reading this and God Bless. We live in a free country that is being run the wrong way in a lot of situations.
Whoa. Taylor didn’t deserve to get jumped by a drunk guy, but at the same time, it could be seen as goading them on. And of course since his phone was stolen, there isn’t footage of the incident. The two should be appealing for footage of anyone else that might have been on hand. There’s got to be someone that took their phone out when seeing a long-haired dude getting roughed up by cops. Oh Florida… Here’s hoping there’s a criminal defense lawyer that’s also a Maylene fan that will take this one on pro bono.
