    welcome to sunny Campbell County, Tennessee:

    the objective here was to get a man to sign a consent form for search and seizure that he could not read - requests to have it read to the suspect were refused:

    Moaning, Siler apparently tries to say something to the lawmen, but Webber is not in the mood for conversation.

    "You're not (expletive) listening," Webber says. "You hear what I told you? I told you not to be talking. ? This (expletive) right here, he loves seeing blood. He loves it. He loves seeing blood. You're talking too much. ? He loves (expletive) seeing blood. He'll beat your ass and lick it off of you."


    Slaps and blows are again documented on the transcript, with Monday continuing to order Siler to sign.

    By now, Siler is crying.

    Threats come next. The lawmen tell Siler they will jail his wife and have his children taken away from him. The transcript details more beating sounds, more moaning from Siler, who repeatedly asks to talk to Webber.

    "You ain't talking to nobody," Green responds. "You're gonna sign this (expletive) paper."

    Siler screams. More blows are heard. The lawmen continue to order Siler to sign. He responds with moans and more screams. But there would be no reprieve.

    "Eugene, it's just beginning, buddy," Webber says.

    "They're not bad people, these officers involved in this, they've done a lot for the community," explained Campbell County Sheriff Ron McClellan.

    Not even the Bad Apples defense, rather 'things just got a little out of hand'.
