– Video: Cops Taser Man 18 Times Then Pounce On Family Member As He Films Incident (Infowars, May 26, 2014):
Incident highlights how police are attacking those who document brutality
The family claim that the cops tasered the suspect up to eighteen times during the fracas. As they keep using the taser, the man tells the cops that he is worried that he is going to die, and the man with the camera phone becomes worried that they are “trying to kill” the suspect.
Finally, as one of the officers has the suspect in a headlock, the other handcuffs him as he stops writhing. The woman then demands that they take the suspect to the hospital.
“Can I get water, I’m going to die, I swear to God.” the man says.
The video ends abruptly as two more officers arrive on the scene and shove the cameraman back, telling him to “step back.”
A physical altercation then takes place with one of the cops saying “give me that damn phone, get the f*** back,” forcing him to stop filming the incident.
From tasering people having a party in their own home, to blinding others with the stun gun during routine traffic stops, a recent spate of incidents have made headlines and spurred protests and unrest in local communities.
