Until police started facing punishment for the abuse they inflict on citizens, they will continue to do it. No matter how much it’s caught on camera.
The latest example comes from the LAPD and the victim is a man named Keenan Anderson who was hit with a taser after he was accused of being in car accident.
The only reason we even know this is because the body cam footage has been released. In the video we see an officer that was flagged down for help and when he stopped people were pointing at Anderson and accused him of causing an accident.
Anderson was telling him how sorry he was and that he didn’t mean to and then told him someone was trying to kill him. The officer got confused during their conversations. One thing led to another and Anderson jogged to the other side of the intersection and the officer then chased after him which caused a struggle when he was caught. During the struggle, Anderson, scared for his life said they were trying to George Floyd him after they threatened to use a taser on him.
Which they then used a taser on him multiple times and then handcuffed him.
He was then taken to the hospital and pronounced dead from suffering cardiac arrest.
From everything we saw in the video, it seems that at the very least that Anderson was a little confused and scared. Instead of treating him like someone scared and confused they used excessive force and it ended up costing him his life.
All on camera and until something happens to the officers in the form of a legit punishment, it will continue to happen.
