The Latest Taser Killing

Email Print

A Baltimore TV station (WJZ) interviewed an eyewitness to the latest taser killing by a cop, that of a teenage boy in Frederick, Maryland two days ago. The middle-aged woman who witnessed the incident said on live TV that the boy, who was simply involved in a fistfight, was already on the ground. She said she heard him say, “My hands are on the ground, officer,” three times, after which the cop tasered him, killing him on the spot.

The murderer’s name has not been made public, unlike the situation if you or I would have committed such a crime. The Frederick police are said to be “conducting an investigation,” which is usually a euphemism for “concocting an excuse for letting their buddy slide.”)
