the vid doesnt show the actual tasing, but does show him sitting on the street with his pants down and him crying in an interview afterwards.

Downtown in Detroit near Comerica Park there is a guy that just sits in a wheelchair and warns incoming and outgoing crowds about a giant crack in the sidewalk where people trip at all the time. He is there every game and never directly asks for any money, just warns people about the crack. Last game I went to I saw the cops hauling the poor guy out of his wheelchair and putting him in the back of the car and I seriously broke down and cussed some mother****ers out.

They said he was loitering and bothering people.

sigh...

Wow that is seriously ****ed up. If the guy wasn't bothering anyone he should have just been left alone

What I've come to realize is being a cop has become 'just a job' to the majority (in my opinion) of cops.

Being a police officer is supposed to a nobile task which someone truly believes they are supposed to uphold justice, but many let it become just a way to get a paycheck and they no longer care. Many get power hungry and forget what it is like to be a normal citizen.

The problem is there's always complaints about not having enough cops on the streets so the recruiting standards get dropped and you get alot mire bad apples that make the good cops look bad.

Same thing is happening with our millitary

You know, a taser should be an absolute last resort...of course with firearms being the ABSOLUTE final resort...but this new age of cops tasering people because they have a smart mouth, or tasering them to calm them down....? Yeah that is completely unacceptable. That is not what the taser was invented for.

Tasers shouldnt be used like they are super soakers, but cops do. That's why I avoid cops like the swine flu. I just honestly dont trust them at all.

Sickening. I guess when more cops are needed and the standards drop, this is what happens. Tasering people like this guy, grandmas, and people that can't defend themself. These types of cops are like schoolyard bullies, only bigger and with weapons.

Bullies that if you try to defend yourself when bullied, you either end up in prison or casket. That is a formidable foe.

I think if a cop wrongfully tasers someone and it's determined that they did so, the cop should get tasered in return as part of his/her punishment.
