First the officers should have taken into consideration of the kids being in the back seat before breaking the window in front of them. There was no need for the police to proceed aggressively, considering the driver and the passenger gave them their information. Also in my opinion there was no need for the passengers …View full post
I have experienced this countless times throughout my life, police have even threaten me with trust passing charges for only walking to visit a friend in a different neighborhood.

My cousin was tased by police officers before and at 200+ pounds, he’s a big dude. From his words on his personal incident, as soon as the taser hit him he was completely incapacitated with no physical control over his body. He especially wasn’t able to cause harm to the officers. For this reason, this case seems exceptionally questionable to me. It’s hard to believe that 2 officers that claim to have used a taser but failed to subdue one unarmed teenager and were forced to resort to shooting him 4 times.
