you know the sad thing is that had this not been caught on tape and trended on social media, this cop would have gotten away with it. This really pisses me off because it gives LEO's a bad name! This also bothers me. If a person is restrained via handcuffs, then you as a LEO are not authorized ANY force against them. In this mean taser, or OC spray. There are other way to handle stuff. This should be no different. The AC officer had the dog on the pole making him restrained. NO force should have been used, let alone the taser AND 5 shots.... And they said it was for the safety of the community and officers on scene yet they questions 15 witnesses who could have all been hit by that bullet ricochet! Thanks for sharing, I hope justice is served!
