We got in a debate between what the definition of following an officer's commands meant for a very long time. He knew that I was winning the argument and often switched around the story. First, he said that he didn't tase him, and then he said he did tase him, and then he said he was there, and then he said he wasn't there. He asked me all of these questions like, "were you there" to which I replied "were you?" To which he replied that he wasn't. He then asked me if I have ever arrested someone that was on drugs and taken them too a rehab or jail. To which I replied, "Yes I have, my family and I had to arrest my sister and she resisted intensely, and I didn't tase her." He told me that didn't count in a child like manor.
A park officer approached this heated argument and told me that the young black man had drugs. I replied, "So just because he had drugs gave you the right to hurt him?" He then told me that the man resisted and they told him 5 times that he would be tased. I found that hard to believe because pigs do tend to roll in shit. The first officer I had a conversation with called over the supposed officer that tased the kid. I asked him why he had tased the boy and he told me that he was flailing his arms when he tried to arrest him. He told me that he tased him then. I quoted the park officer and asked him if he said five times to the kid to stop or else he would be tased. He stuttered looked at the park officer and said "if not more." He then showed me the crack he had on him which was an incredibly small amount. His story was that he grabbed the kid and told him he was under arrest, the kid then broke free and the officer miraculously told him 5 times that he would be tased and then tased him. I said that by the time he yelled 5 times to the kid to stop or he would be tased that the kid would be out of the tasers reach. They decided that was the end of the discussion as the poor young man cried while the metal points were being removed from his body.
What I failed to notice was that there were two taser tips instead of one inside of him. This did not fit in their story. I talked to some school mates that saw the whole event and one of them said the young man hardly resisted at all and that they could have easily handcuffed him at that point. He told me that he never recalled the kid going out of the officers grasp and that if he did it would have been less than an inch. Another witness told me that after they tased him he was flailing on the ground and crying and twitching. When he was twitching after the first tase they thought that was another attempt to "run away", so they tased him WHILE HE WAS ON THE GROUND. He told me that the kid was crying and said he would stop and jerked which he described was not an effort to get away, my guess is he was still twitching from the first tase. It was then when they handcuffed him and where I came in. Reading this story I can only tell you what I and what witnesses saw you be the judge of if their decision to tase this 15 year old boy was correct. I myself am outraged. I'm sorry I didn't get the officers names but I could identify them if pictures were given. One of them had extremely weird hair in which he had a buzz-cut with several bald patches around his head.
