More Police Overkill

Connor Friedersdorf provides the full context to this video. In short: a black man goes to pick up his kids and waits for them in an area he thinks is a public area and is not designated as a private area. He is asked to leave. The video starts here, showing him walking away from the situation as he gives a cop his side of the story. Arguments ensue, the man is tased and sent to jail.

For anyone who thinks the police were in the right, I ask these two questions:

1. If they were in the right, why were the charges dropped?

2. Why did the police hold onto this video for 6 months?

The article gives the typical police reaction. There won’t be any accountability here.
