Do you remember the cop that tasered a handcuffed woman in the chest while his buddies just stood their and watched? Her name is Nakina Williams. His name is Officer Sterling Taylor of the McAlester Police Department, and after this vulgar display of power, he was allowed to remain on the force.

Karma refers to the principle of causality where intent and actions of an individual influence the future of that individual.

Could the following be an incident be an example of Karma? We'd like to think so.

According to a court affidavit filed in the case, McAlester police were dispatched Saturday night to a fight at 725 S. D St. The affidavit states that officer Sterling Taylor was the first to arrive and was advised by Dustin Williams that the fight was over and “everything was okay.”

The affidavit alleges Taylor attempted to talk to the father and sons at the scene and all three told him that the fight had ended and told Taylor to leave.

The affidavit alleges Taylor warned the Williamses they could be arrested after they allegedly threatened bodily harm to men who had been involved in the fight.

The affidavit alleges that’s when Taylor was attacked by all three men, and was choked.

Once Taylor was able to use his portable police radio to call for help, the men quit fighting and went inside their home, the affidavit alleges. Taylor followed them into the home to arrest them, the affidavit states.

The three then attacked Taylor inside the home until other officers arrived, the affidavit alleges.

The affidavit states Taylor was transported to McAlester Regional Health Center where he was treated and released.

Hayden and Dustin were also taken to MRHC, treated and released to police custody, according to McAlester Police Det. Sgt. Chris Morris.

Ironically enough, Taylor's attackers shared the same last name as the woman he tasered.
