It appears that Andre Thomas was right. The Swissvale, Pennsylvania man knocked on doors of an apartment complex yelling that someone was trying to shoot him. The police arrived and, when he allegedly failed to comply with their orders, shot the unarmed man with a taser and then, according to witnesses, beat him. He died at a hospital later and an autopsy is planned.
Swissvale officers reported that they stopped Thomas, 37, in front of the apartment building and that he refused to submit to them. They proceeded to hit him with a taser. Witnesses claim that he was forced to the ground and handcuffed — and then was stomped on and beaten by police.
