Billings Montana--//MNA Press//-- The Billings Police and Grant Morrison are being accused of Assault on Richard Ramirez. The Estate of Richard Ramirez in this legal case does not have to show or are required to demonstrate damages, but an “Imminent apprehension” of “harmful or offensive contact” Schuster, at 9 (Citing Collins V. Dept of Justice Div of Highway Patrol 755,p.2nd 1373, 1377 Mont 1988.
“In this case an arresting officer can use force such as reasonably necessary to affect a lawful arrest. However, a police officer who uses more force than reasonably necessary to affect a lawful arrest commits a battery upon the person arrested as to such excessive force.”
In this case the Billings police used excessive force in attempting to take control of Richard Ramirez and when Grant Morrison arrested Richard.
In fact instead of arresting him in a lawfull manner, as most reasonable police officers would have done, Grant Morrison used excessive force in that incident which resulted in the death of Richard Ramirez as the result of three fatal shots to the upper torso area causing not only the death of Richard Ramirez but constituted what is called and “Assault” as defined by Schuster 9 Collings v. Dept Justice Dept of Highway Patrol 755 p.2d 1373 1377 Mont. 1988.
“A police officer that uses more force than is reasonably necessary to affect a lawful arrest commits a battery upon the person arrested as to such excessive force.”
This means that Grant Morrison caused what is called a harmful and offensive contact with Richard Ramirez and that there was unreasonable or excessive force used against the person of Richard Ramirez. Many In The Public Consider Officer Grant Morrison a danger to public safety.
