Police Tasers Man For Not Signing Ticket

Tasered for SpeedingHere is some breaking news. This video was only released yesterday, and it demonstrates a clear and frankly unbelievable abuse of power by a Utah Highway Patrol officer.

Some guy was pulled over for speeding and argued with the police officer a bit about the speed limit. It’s a bit hard to hear but it sounds to me like the guy was going about 60, but the highway speed limit changed to 40, and that is exactly where the cop pulled him over. I’m guessing it was a classic speed trap.

Anyway, the police officer writes him a ticket, which he refuses to sign, so the cop pulls him out of the car and tasers him. Meanwhile his pregnant wife is freaking out!

Now, stupid things the driver did:

  • Argue with a dumb, hick cop who is clearly out to bust you in a speed trap.
  • Refuse to allow himself to be handcuffed.
  • Turned his back on a police officer who was pointing a Taser at him.

Even stupider things the cop did:

  • Be intollerant to the point of inciting the behavior of the driver.
  • Failing to diffuse what was not even a hostile or dangerous situation.
  • Tasering a man during a traffic stop without even attempting to reason with him, stop him, cuff him, or anything of the sort.

This abuse of power is just like the 20 or so other examples from my article The Tasering Will Continue Until You All Submit! And again, I point out that this police officer completely ignored any reasonable Force Continuum methodology just because he knew that the torturous Taser was all he needed. Plus you could tell at the end that he was getting a kick out of telling his buddy all about what he had done.

As I’ve been predicting since the police Tasered the UCLA student and the 11 year old at school, the tasering is going to become more and more routine, and for lesser and lesser reasons until society in general demands that it’s use be curbed.

So keep in mind that this son of a bitch wants you to know that next time you get pulled over you better not give any lip or you’re gonna get the tase! Beeotch!

    The police in America think that they are the Kings representatives and that the “commoners” should show them due reverence. Just ask them a question and they will charge you with interfering with a police officer in the performance of duty- for ASKING A QUESTION! I suppose they forget that they took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution. Seems that they think we are still under the authority of King George. (but then would-be King George W certainly gave them plenty of reason to think that, just read his PATRIOT ACT and the Presidential determination that he signed declaring that the President is not subject to the Congress or Supreme Court in any matter that HE ALONE declares is a matter of national security- the same authority claimed by the “dangerous” Sadam Hussein who had to be removed)

    The Officer decided to give the guy a ticket (For whatever reason) so it did not make any sense to argue with the officer about doing his job. That’s what court is for. Never complain about or argue with a police officer, just take notes on what he’s doing wrong and contact a lawyer and internal affairs to make a complaint against the officer. I promise you, If you make a complaint at the internal affairs office regarding an officer’s behaviour. That Officer will be sweating his balls off while he’s being investigated just as you were sweating your behind off thinking about how you are going to pay or fight that ticket. The only diffrence is the Officer could be fired or suspended if your complaint proved he acted unprofessionally or unethically.

    It really amazes me how different the cops treat white law breakers and how young whites treat cops. I can almost be assured it would not have been a taser but a loaded 9mm if it were a young black man. But the young black man would not have gotten out the vehicle to argue with cop about speeding…

    someone needs to shoot that cop with the taser. What he did was illegal and I hope to God that he went to jail for that. The cop freaked out, shot an a man with a taser and came close to zaping the girl with it to. His whole department should line up and fire tasers into him, show him what its like. Personally i’d aim for his balls, so he can’t ever produce another creap like himself.

    Believe it or not, being professional and conducting yourself properly will almost always make the bad guy look stupid.
