Had his hands in his pockets during an arrest and they tased him anyway. This is already becoming a top story. Not good.
The thread to this post should be " How to defy the police "
The officer's job was write a ticket and ask the guy to move the car if it was his. This cop wanted more, looked for more and made it become more. That's why he is being called out on this as an instigator and the reason for escalating things. Thing is the person it was done to is a professional athlete so it made the news. This stuff happens all over the USA all the time it's old school policing where citizens are victims to aggressive police that feel their job is to "put people in their place".
You don't think Sterling Brown's action contributed to this matter? I am glad he did not get shot after he did not take his hands out of his pockets. He was even dumb enough to say and that he had something in his pocket when asked about then the cops swooped in. It could have been something, a gun, a joint, change who knows. Maybe he was pretending to be toug
h for street cred. But that comment at 14 seconds is what let to the police escalating the situation. Because when your life is on the life, you're going to assume the worst.
Who tells the police to get back into their car and move along when questioned? Sterling Brown.
BTW, I watched the Body Cam vids, not the edited version shown on CNN and ESPN trying to stir outrage.
