Yeah I know , if it were the States he'd be dead now but this is England , it's also just as unacceptable and good reason why not all of our police should be armed.

The 63 year old man from Bristol had done nothing wrong accept be in the same place at the same time as the government sanctioned stasi , he was confronted as he returned home from walking his dog.

The man , Judah Adunbi , refused to give his name to Britain's finest when asked as he'd done nothing wrong , so after throwing their weight about the female officer shot him in the face with the Taser , the following video was filmed by a neighbor of Mr Adunbi.


I have respect for the laws of this land but have no respect for those Fascist pigs who "Enforce" them , the above video is just one example of why that is.

A stunned passerby filmed the officers confronting 63-year-old Judah Adunbi - who works to smooth relations between police and the black community - and ask for his name. But when the indignant grandfather refuses and tries to enter his home officers shout "Taser" and shoot the electric gun at his face.

Mr Adunbi, one of the founders of the Independent Advisory Group set up by the police with the BME community in Bristol, then falls to the ground. Embarrassed police chiefs have admitted the local community in Easton, Bristol - and the BME community as a whole - would "have concerns" about the incident.

Great job guys , what a sorry display , pathetic.

Refused to comply with requests and then got tasered for it.

Call it fascism if you want, but that's what happens when you start shoving cops and refusing to comply.

Wow ! Poor guy ..... I wonder why they stopped him in the first place ? He didn't look like he was doing anything at all....

Man, there was just no need for this to escalate the way it did. An elderly Gentleman refusing to give his name to the fascist brigade, ends up being tasered for refusing to do so.

I was born and bred in Bristol and still live here. I remember the race riots of the 1980's very well as my Father was a Special Contstable and had to cover the local station whilst the regulars dealt with the rioters.

I really thought we had moved on from this type of behaviour, but it is evident, the Police still think they are the law and not public servants upholding the law.

Also, my message to Avon and Somerset constabulary is that it isn't just the BME community who have "concerns" about the incident, it is every community in Bristol.

She broke the law , she should issue the taser warning before she shoots them .
The shoving was instigated by the police , the guy was inside his property then dragged out by the officer.

There is no justification for what is seen on the video.

from the article
Embarrassed police chiefs ......."have concerns" about the incident.

an understatement!

WTF.
thank god the witness was filming.
I think it is telling how they grabbed him out of his property onto public ground to perhaps "change the narrative."
He had his keys in his hands as he was close to his house - they cant use the "concealed weapons" excuse.

Monetary compensation doesnt cover the indignity and assault he suffered, but I hope he sues them for some serious Euros

Is it known why they were talking to him in the first place? The video starts after they are already arguing. They just randomly started talking to him and asking for his ID?

He wasn't shoving anybody, he was being stopped from proceeding because he refused to give his name. I would have done the same thing, they do not have an automatic right to obtain your name, unless you are being arrested.

There was absolutely no need for the taser to be used, he's an elderly Gent.

The Police in the main do a good job in the city, but there are too many nervous nellies being allowed to carry Tasers legally.

The BBC are reporting Mr Adunbi as saying the police say they were looking for an individual.

He said: "[The police] claim they are looking for an individual...they know who the individual is so why go as far as accuse any black man in the street with dreadlocks."

unreasonable request - so he is within his right to not assist them. He should have demanded a lawyer straight away.
They dragged him off his property

A disgrace to the uniform, to the organisation and to the country. If this had happened on a warmer day angry mobs would be seeking revenge and these two f.ckwits would be to blame.

No wonder people are losing more and more respect for the police all the time now.

Well for all we know the police could have been acting on intelligence this guy was armed hence the taser being deployed in the first place.

Really pisses me of when people see a video like this from one perspective then cry police brutality. He started finghting with police with a taser. It's his own fault for being so difficult. Just give them your name let them ask their questions and be on your way. Whatever you do don't start westeling with ops with teasers.

There you go.

Police thought they were detaining a wanted man, this guy was refusing to comply, they thought they were after a wanted man. It's a mistake not police brutality and I still maintain it's his fault for acting the way he did

Is that an actual law? Everything I've seen includes the phrase "if possible" which sorta takes away from the "she broke the law because she's required to give warning" idea. If it's a law great, educate me. But people keep saying she broke the law by not giving a warning and I can't find a law that says that. As for hitting him in the face with the Taser probe,

For me, this guy's age has nothing to do with it. Him being a race relations adviser has nothing to do with it. Retirees can still break the law. Race relations advisers can still break the law. What's perplexing to me is the lack of de-escalation that we always hear people go on about when it comes to UK police.

Wrong the police do not have to issue a warning, its best practice but not a legal requirement. There are cases when a suspect is concidered so dangerous they will just deploy the taser without warning to detain a suspect safely

Consider this. Once upon a time , my wife went to stay the night with her sick mother. She accidentally took my door key with her. There had been a slew of break ins in my city prior
A friend gave me a ride home after work. I worked the 4-midnight shift. I was hungry and tired. Then I remembered a window that did not have a lock on it. I started raising that window with high hopes of food and rest. That is when the police officers pulled up. I IMMEDIATELY gave them my name and explained that this was my house and what had happened . I still had to provide proof of name and address. Thank all powers that be , my license reflected my address.
Now what would have happened to me if I had said , "none of your business" ?
This guy just wanted to be "big boy on the block" .Period.
Amazing what risks folks will take just to feel important.

The best part about comments like this is that law enforcement agencies tend to reflect, as far as average IQ levels, the general population they draw their officers from. For some reason this notion became a meme after the whole "don't have to hire somebody that's too smart" lawsuit. Yet people conveniently dismiss that average intelligence is average intelligence. Cops may be stupid I guess, but look what they have to hire from

Well, you live in a totally different world from the rest of us, I swear.

You are slapping these fascists on the back for doing this?

They were looking for someone in connection with a crime and tried to apprehend the wrong guy. It isn't against the law to refuse to give your name and the Gentleman was manhandled as the situation escalated.

If you think the Police were in the right here, then I worry for you.

So let's say this was the guy they were looking for.

Police "Can we have your name please"

Mr criminal "no"

Police " bye then"

Mr criminal "that was easy"
