Here is the video of Mr. Derrick, a motorist tasered by police from the Columbia Missouri police department after 23 seconds!! He was stopped for allegedly having no front license plate. He was tasered 23 seconds later. He asked why he was stopped - the policeman responded that he had no license (false - it was in the police officer's hand). The policeman signalled that he smelled marijuana (touched his nose - the other officer shook his head, indicating that he did not smell marijuana. Mr. Derrick was tasered, beaten, maced and arrested. Why? Resisting Arrest!!!!! His lawyer is filing suit and would appreciate your comments at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am cadilac's attorney. This will be the only post I make. Just to get the ball rolling - I enjoy your commentary and am quite interested in the current "get rid of the taser issue.".
The license plate was in the front window because the placeholder recently fell off?
Cadilac was pulled over by the same two officers several weeks before and arrested for having a warrant for his arrest when he had no warrant, was taken to the police station for booking, and then was released?
Cadilac was wondering why the officer would tell him he has no license, when his license was in the officer's hand?
Cadilac has no prior record except a high school altercation with another student?
There was no weapon or contraband of any kind discovered in the resulting search of the vehicle?
The policy of the CPD requires you to yell "Taser! Taser! Taser!" before deploying the taser?
--- My only comments on this blog will be as follows: I want to support good, tough police work. Unfortunately, 100% of the officers do not behave properly 100% of the time. We cannot be so foolish as to believe that everyone with a badge deserves to wear it. I have no doubt that these two officers are good people. I just question whether they have the objectivity and wisdom to wield the awesome power of the state without getting their feelings hurt. Officers should go out of their way to be the good guys, with good motives. If they wish to presume that every peson they deal with in their job is a "bad guy," fine. But they should go out of their way to de-escalate the already tense atmosphere of being stopped by the police, not escalate hostilities.
I believe the taser should NEVER be used to gain compliance. It should be used as a defensive weapon only. These are my beliefs and reasonable minds may disagree. John Stuart Mill opined that a persons liberty extends as far as that person wants it to, limited only when it bumps up against the liberty of another citizen. The duty of the State (in this case the police) is to step in when one persons liberty interferes with the liberty of another. Not to create another conflict.
We as citizens SHOULD question state actions that seem unreasonable. Thomas Jefferson stated that a little revolution is a good thing. It is. If the officers had treated Cadilac with a very small amount of respect, I believe they would have received it in return.
