How do you find yourself in this situation dude. Look around you. Do you not see what is going on in the world? Do you own a TV? It is not the time to be using any sort of unnecessary force, and on a black man no less. It’s like these cops are trying to be the next national headline.
Oh and to save you the time, yes the officer was white.
“The man falls to the ground, where the officer proceeds lean on his back with his knees. The officer appears to deploy the stun gun on him again, this time while he’s already face down on the ground. At this point, other officers join the initial officer in pushing the man into the ground, where they force handcuffs onto him. – Source
At one point, the victim yells: “I can’t breathe.”
It was at that point, the officer knew his career was over.
“A police officer in Fairfax County, Virginia, faces up to three years in prison in connection with his arrest and use of a stun gun on a black man who cried out, “I can’t breathe.”Fairfax County police released bodycam footage of the incident, which appears to show Officer Tyler Timberlake using a stun gun on the man without provocation.In a news conference Saturday night, Chief of Police Col. Edwin C. Roessler Jr. said the footage — dated Friday, June 5 — showed the officer violating the department’s use-of-force policies and committing “criminal acts” that “violate our oath of office” and “ignore the sanctity of human life.” – CNN
Now who knows if the guy was purposely saying that because of the popularity of the slogan right now, a lot of people are saying he is at home resting with his family perfectly fine and was just millking the current climate. But in reality, it doesn’t matter. They had the guy on the ground with multiple officers around him. They tased him twice. If he is milking it, good for him. Because that is the American way.
But you’re going to tase a black man twice? On video? Right now? Asking for it my guy…
I’m not going to take a strong stance on this one. Yet, atleast. But for now I really really can’t emphasize enough how mind-boggling it is to me that cops end up in these situations while protests ARE CURRENTLY HAPPENING.
The guy was unarmed if you had multiple cops and you really had to use the taser maybe America’s police really just need to hit the gym.
