There is a controversy in Royal Oak, Michigan where a group of police officers are seen arresting a 25-year-old man on St. Patrick’s Day. The man, at least when outside of the bar, does not appear to be resisting but officers are shown pulling the man in different direction, dropping him to the ground, and using a taser.
In the midst of the scrum, one officer yells “taser” even tough the man’s movement appears the result of being shoved and pulled by officers. He was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
The police department said that it is investigating but that “At this point, preliminarily, there doesn’t appear to be any misconduct by officers.”
What do you think?
