[b]‘OK, I’m dead’: Two Georgia sheriffs taser handcuffed man to death in shocking video[/b] Via [url=https://www.rt.com/usa/343843-georgia-sheriffs-taser-death/]RT[/url] and [url=http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/21/us/chase-sherman-video-georgia.html]NY Times[/url] _________________________ [quote][img]http://i.imgur.com/dgIUyZK.jpg[/img] A new video has surfaced online showing two Georgia sheriff’s deputies, Samuel Smith and Joshua Sepanski, tasering a handcuffed man to death. The victim’s family said the two officers have faced no punishment and are still working at their department. The footage came from the body camera of one of the two Coweta County deputies who violently subdued Chase Sherman, a 32-year-old Florida man, as he was sitting in the back of a police car, leading to his death in November of 2015. After realizing Sherman was dead, both Smith and Sepanski reacted frantically, as one of them is heard saying, “we’re f**ked.”[/quote] [hd]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLKLDWHJ-sA[/hd] [quote]The camera started recording while Smith and Joshua were on the way to the scene. By the time they arrived, Sherman was already in handcuffs, sitting in the back of the family vehicle, desperate to get out. One of the deputies took out a Taser and threatened to use it on Sherman, who then grabbed it. The deputy tased him several times in response, as the second deputy punched Sherman in the head. “OK. I’m dead, I’m dead,” Sherman is heard saying after a while. “I quit, I quit.” However, the officers kept tasing him after he loosened his grip. “For four minutes and 10 seconds after he said ‘I quit,’ they still tased him and kept him on the ground. That’s torture, and they killed him,” the Sherman family’s lawyer, Chris Stewart, told the New York Times.[/quote] Wow...

Tasers shouldn't be referred as non-lethals
They're not. They are "less-than-lethal" now.
[QUOTE=Grenadiac;50362939]Tasers shouldn't be referred as non-lethals[/QUOTE] They're less-than-lethal, which is accurate. Edit: Why would you do that to me
[QUOTE=bitches;50362845]how about a literal start to finish video of the incident oh wait[/QUOTE] The video just shows the incident. It's perfectly reasonable to ask for a decent source to report what happened after.
Oh wow something in my home town, What a small world. I live one exit down from where this happened, I can't get over this. Edit: Oh nvm this was last year, still crazy though.

[QUOTE=OvB;50363062]No you didn't.[/QUOTE] Damn, you got me right after I edited it.
it sounds like the guy had some kind of mental illness, they say he may have taken synthetic marijuana before the trip but that's kind of a straw man considering it was a large chunk of time before this happened
Wow, this situation could've been handled way better.
[QUOTE=Sableye;50363153]it sounds like the guy had some kind of mental illness, they say he may have taken synthetic marijuana before the trip but that's kind of a straw man considering it was a large chunk of time before this happened[/QUOTE] [quote]Studies are currently available which suggest an association between synthetic cannabinoids and psychosis. The use of synthetic cannabinoids can be associated with psychosis and physicians are beginning to investigate possible use of synthetic cannabinoids in patients with inexplicable psychotic symptoms. In contrast to most other recreational drugs, the dramatic psychotic state induced by use of synthetic cannabinoids has been reported, in multiple cases, to persist for several weeks, and in one case for seven months, after complete cessation of drug use.[50] Individuals with risk factors for psychotic disorders are often counseled against using synthetic cannabinoids.[/quote] [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synthetic_cannabinoids#Safety]Wiki source[/url] [url=http://ajp.psychiatryonline.org/doi/pdf/10.1176/appi.ajp.2011.11010176]Original source[/url] Spice is pretty nasty stuff, and I don't understand why people would use it.
America, you are one fucked up place.. This is disgusting, this is fucking murder.. What in the name of fuck... I can't believe how life has no value in your country, this is fucking revolting..

America's gun culture is one of the biggest causes, true. But that doesn't explain everything why there are so many LEO killings. One idea is that it might be due to the fact that every municipal and county police department has to train their officers individually, and understaffed/cash strapped ones will cut corners on this front, especially when it comes to the use of negotiation strategies and use of less than lethal weapons. Cash strapped police departments also see fines, tickets, forfeitures, etc. as sources of revenue and so push for more involuntary police encounters. In 1989, the Supreme court of the United States issued a mandate that says that if an officer perceives a reasonable, imminent threat to their lives, they can use deadly force if needed. You have to make allowances that within reason, officers might not make the best decisions in the field when it comes to a given incident. I'm not saying that this should be used as a blank check, but it should be considered in any instance where deadly force is used. There are other causes like socioeconomic deprivation, injustice, poor mental healthcare and stigmatization of mental illnesses, and a desire of criminals to avoid going into prison, especially a prison system as harsh as America's can be. Honestly, it may be that more research is needed on comparative study between American and European law enforcement policies, especially on the count that Europe has a more generous and supportive law enforcement policy, that might have something to do with people becoming less inclined to provoke or resist the police even if they're desperate.

You make it sound like police are randomly shooting people pulled over for a speeding ticket.
This video gave me claustrophobia

(jk) But in seriousness, throw these lowlifes in jail. Any other person who does something like this would get life, but because they are police officers that excuses their actions somehow.
