Did Xiaojie Li - Chinese - find out the limits in the U.S.A.?


Whether you believe or not that the Nashua, New Hapshire police were justified with use of such force as tasering a woman, there is one variable which is clear about the whole incident. Xiaojie Li of Newton, Massachusetts was in some sort of way or fashion instructed to leave the store, and apparently refused. Think of it like this: Xiaojie Li, a Chinese woman living in the United States of America - English is the native language - makes her way to a store she is has been to. To get around guidelines of a particular Apple store's purchase limits, she used tactics. Yes, tactics.

Now follow along with me while using this colourful descriptive method. You go one day to the zoo and at it is a really big grizzly bear. You are awed by the bear, yet it seems nice to you because you are feeding it. It now becomes full from your feeding it, and expresses its desire of no longer wanting from you. You leave thinking of a way to go back and further control that bear for your own reasons. You show up wearing a bear suit similar to that big ole' grizzly bear you fed before. But things have changed since that grizzly no longer wants your food. It expresses this, yet you think that you are better at knowing what that bear needs, so you do not comply with the bear's wants. Other bears - his friends - see this and come to the aid of one of their own - remember you are only acting like a bear.

See, resistance is futile since you are in their surroundings, and even the thought of taking them on, is silly and with poor judgement, no matter the language.

Xiaojie Li should of left the bears surrounding when the snarling bears showed their teeth and not proceed.

Why again did Xiaojie Li, a non-English speaking person have so much money with her to buy only a couple Apple's?
Is there more to this person and the following stories than meets the eye?
The Liberal media paints her a victim right from the start, but ...?
Xiaojie Li tempted not only the stores policy, but the police - right or wrong!

In closing, the incident some how escalated to the point potentially harmful force was used.
Had Xiaojie Li just left, how could this of escalated?
Furthermore, she should become familiar with the language and laws of the land she is in - United States of America -, or maybe it is safer for her to stay home. Maybe China, a Single-party state, Communist/Socialist state is better and/or safer!?

When we go abroad and I have extensively, I know one thing for sure, that taking on police whether fully understanding what they are saying or not may result in something I do not want. So, better to just comply, step back and rethink the situation with clear, at ease thoughts.

We at Corruption Cripples are not taking any sides in this matter, but have come to realize that using, "Me no understand English" in an English speaking country just does not cut it.
Try the same in China! "Me no speak Chinese".

 Police Use of Taser Warranted in Apple Store Arrest

Mass. woman had $16,000 in cash on her when she was arrested outside the Apple store.
By Carol Robidoux December 12, 2012

Nashua Police are saying today that their use of a Taser in arresting a Newton woman Dec. 11 was warranted under the "force continuum," which allows for incremental use of force during an arrest – from police officer presence up to and including deadly force.

Newton, Mass., resident Xiaojie Li, 44, was arrested Tuesday at the Pheasant Lane Mall in Nashua, after she allegedly trespassed at the mall's Apple Store, Nashua Police Capt. Bruce Hansen said.
During the arrest, Nashua police used a Taser to try to subdue Xiaojie, who is charged with two misdemeanor criminal trespassing charges.

Hansen said the Xiaojie had been asked to leave the store two days earlier by management, after she had been "videotaping" other customers, Hansen said.

"They told her to leave and not come back, and she did. Then on Tuesday, she was back in the store around 11 a.m.," Hansen said.

It was also a day that the store happened to have a police officer working a detail in the store due to a crowd control problem, Hansen said.

"They have an issue with groups of people coming in and one person providing the money so they can all get in line separately and each buy multiple items in the store, goods that they then ship overseas and sell for four-times more money," Hansen said. "In effect, if a group of 10 people do that, they can leave with 20 items."

Hansen did not say that was the reason Xiaojie was asked to leave. However, he did say it was the reason Apple frequently hires a police detail.

A request for comment from Apple's corporate office by Nashua Patch about the incident, and their security practices, was not immediately returned.

Hansen explained that the store has a policy in place limiting sales to two items per person. The police detail is designed to discourage the group purchasing practices.

"Yesterday happened to be a detail day, and the store manager noticed this woman in the store as the same woman asked to leave two days earlier. They told her she was not welcome, and they went back and forth about it for a period of time. The woman refused to leave. Police finally intervened," Hansen said.

"Our officer told her if she didn't leave she'd be placed under arrest, and her response was, 'Why?' and then 'No!'," Hansen said.

At that point the officer attempted to place Xiaojie in handcuffs outside the store, but she resisted and the two ended up on the ground. Hansen said police were able to place one of Xiaojie's hands in cuffs but she was twisting on the ground, holding her other arm underneath her.

A second officer arrived to assist and after failing to get Xiaojie's other arm into the cuffs, she was Tasered, Hansen said.

"We felt she understood what was going on, and was not cooperative," Hansen said.

Xiaojie claims she cannot not speak English and didn't understand why the Apple Store called the police.  In an interview with WMUR, Xiaojie said she was attempting to buy several iPhones for family in China. Apple employees informed her she was limited to just two, but she claims she spotted other customers buying more than two phones.

A nearby shopper caught video of the Taser incident, which shows police arresting Xiaojie. Viewers can hear the apparent screams from Xiaojie as well as the buzzing of the Taser.

Hansen said using a Taser during the arrest was warranted under the "force continuum," which allows for incremental use of force during an arrest – from police officer presence up to and including deadly force. In this instance, a Taser was used rather than pepper spray, due to the number of other people in an enclosed area.

"Once you shoot off your pepper spray, it contaminates an area, so the decision was made to use the Taser in 'drive stun' mode," Hansen said. He said he viewed the YouTube video of the arrest which was posted by WMUR.

"It's not a pleasant experience but it's not designed to be," Hansen said.

He also noted that Xiaojie had a large amount of money on her –  $16,000 in cash – at the time of her arrest.

"That also tells you something. Any merchant, in this day and age, that would have a paying customer leave their store  – that tells you they didn't want her business, and they have a right to turn her away," Hansen said.

Video Shows Nashua Police Using Taser On Woman After iPhone Dispute

NASHUA, NH (CBS) – A trip to the mall turned into a violent confrontation for a Newton woman trying to buy iPhones.

Xiaojie Li was arrested at Pheasant Lane Mall
Xiaojie Li bought two of the phones earlier in the week at the Pheasant Lane Mall in Nashua and wanted to get two more, but was told she could not. She then ordered them online to be picked up at the same Apple store. When she tried to pick them up Tuesday, a manager told Li to leave.  She says she didn’t understand.

A police officer tried to escort her out of the store, but says she refused to go and then resisted arrest.
Video from YouTube shows Li struggling with officers on the floor outside the store. Police eventually pulled out a taser and used it to subdue Li.

Li’s screams could be heard throughout the crowded mall.

Li’s fiance, John Hugo, spoke to WBZ-TV about the incident. He says, “They threw her on the ground, they threw her around, they bruised her all over the place, they handcuffed her way too hard.”

“For whatever reason the store didn’t want her there,” says Nashua Police Captain Bruce Hansen. “And this time of the year, you got to do something pretty extreme to want a store owner to not want to do business with you.”

Photos show the injuries Li sustained during the arrest. She claims other people were allowed to buy more than two iPhones, and was upset that she was unable to.

“Her sense of security is shattered,” says Hugo. “You can tell just by looking at the poor girl, she wants to go back to China now because she’s afraid of civil rights violations in America. Think about that.”

Li had $16,000 in cash on her at the time of the incident. She has hired a lawyer to fight her charges, saying police overreacted.

The amount of iPhones you are allowed to buy depends on where you shop. One Apple Store WBZ-TV called said customers could only buy two a time. Another said there was no limit. There has been no comment yet from Apple on this particular case.

Cops use Taser on woman buying too many iPhones
Police policy OKs Taser use with aggressive, combative subjects

Cops use Taser on woman buying too many iPhones

NEWTON, Mass. —
A local family says a language barrier may have resulted in police using a Taser on a woman after she tried to buy too many iPhones at a local mall. Police, however, say the incident isn't that clear cut. 

Xiaojie Li, of Newton, said she is embarrassed by Monday's Pheasant Lane Mall in New Hampshire incident.

"So my mom says she don't know why they called the police, because she doesn't understand what they are talking about," her 12-year-old daughter Jiao Jay said.

Jay said her mother bought two iPhones last Friday, and was told that was the limit. When she took video of others she claimed were buying more, the store manager asked her to leave.

The confrontation involving the Taser happened when Li went to the store on Monday to pick up two iPhones she ordered online.

"The management of the store asked us to have her removed. The officer approached her, told her she wasn't welcome in the store, and she refused to leave," Nashua Police Capt. Bruce Hansen said. 
Police say the store had issued a stay-away order against Li.

"Two days prior to that, she had been asked to leave the store by store personnel for doing something that they didn't want," Hansen said, referring to Li's photographing other customers in the store.

A video posted on YouTube shows Li and police officers on the floor outside the Apple store at the Nashua mall. The crackle of the Taser and Li's screams can be heard on the video.

"She was scared, she didn't understand," said John Hugo, who said he was Li's fiance'. "I was outraged. You go into a store, and you end up getting brutalized by the police."

Hansen said the woman had been resisting arrest for about 15 minutes before a second officer arrived at the scene.

"So then the police took my mom's phone and tried to take my mom's bag. And my mom tried to ask them why, and they just threw her to the ground," Jay said.

The 44-year-old mother of two was charged with trespassing and resisting arrest.

"My mom feel really upset with what they did," Jay said.

Nashua police see the situation differently. 

"She wasn't mistreated in any way. If she left the store when she was told to leave the store, it would've been done at that. She was told she was under arrest after repeatedly being told to leave the store. She didn't submit to the arrest. The officer used the Taser on her to get her to submit to the arrest," Hansen said.

According to Nashua police policy, Tasers may be used "when the subject has signaled his/her intention to actively resist arrest in an aggressive, hostile manner or when a need arises to incapacitate a dangerous, combative, or high risk subject where other use of force techniques exposes the officer, the subject or the public to unnecessary danger, or when other force techniques have been or may be ineffective."

The policy continues, "The weapon is a level of force normally required to overcome passive, defensive, or offensive resistance that is intended as an act of overt aggression toward the officer where an individual refuses to comply with verbal instructions." 

Li will be in court in January.

A Massachusetts woman was stunned with a Taser and arrested at a New Hampshire mall on Monday, the result of an apparent miscommunication with police. 

The trouble started when Xiaojie Li attempted to buy more than two iPhones at an Apple store at the Pheasant Lane Mall in Nashua, N.H., on Dec. 7, WMUR reports.

After being told by store employees that she had bought the limit, Li took video of what she claimed were other customers buying more than two phones, she said through her 12-year-old daughter who served as an interpreter. The store manager reportedly asked Li to leave, and issued a stay-away order for the 44-year-old mother.

Li then ordered two phones online and returned to the store Monday to pick them up. WCVB reported that the woman was trying to avoid Massachusetts sales tax on the phones. 

"The management of the store asked us to have her removed. The officer approached her, told her she wasn't welcome in the store, and she refused to leave," Nashua Police Capt. Bruce Hansen told the station.

Police said they shocked Li after she resisted arrest. A person in the crowd filmed the incident and posted it to YouTube. 

"My mom says she doesn't know why they called the police because she doesn't understand what they are talking about," Li's daughter told WMUR.

However, Nashua Police Chief John Seusing said that was not a factor in the arrest.

“It was very clear to the officers that she knew exactly what was going on,” Seusing told the Nashua Telegraph. “The officer didn’t think for a second that she was having difficulty understanding what she was being asked to do.”

Seusing told the newspaper that the Apple Store hires Nashua officers to work security details because of past problems. He said the store enforces purchase limits to deter groups of customers who buy large numbers of iPhones and iPads and then sell them for a profit overseas.

CBS Boston reported that Li had $16,000 in cash on her when she was arrested. 

Li is due in court in January and has hired an attorney, claiming police overreacted.
