See the body-cam video at truepundit.com...

Are these police officers genuinely afraid of this guy, or are they simply being sadistic, and trying out their new Taser gun?


Newly obtained body-camera footage shows police in Glendale, Arizona, using a stun gun on a man 11 times, including on his bare testicles, during a 2017 traffic stop.

Arizona’s ABC 15 and The Arizona Republic obtained footage that shows one officer kicking 39-year-old Johnny Wheatcroft ― who was handcuffed and lying on the ground at the time ― in the groin and using a stun gun on his testicles as his wife and two children plead with officers to stop.

Wheatcroft is now suing the officers and police department for “excessive … force and torture.”
Article w/Video: truepundit.com...

Why do police officers abuse their authority like this so frequently? Do the recipients of police abuse never retaliate...which makes officers feel comfortable in taking out their frustrations, or just getting their jollies off, at the expense of another human being?

The department needs to be sued and the officers charged with the crime.

The blue line will stand in the way.

Police are trained to deal a certain way with 'suspicious' behavior. The whole thing could have been avoided with a more cordial attitude.
With that said, without context it does seem the police acted with more force than necessary.

Side note:
I am under the impression one needs to travel with ID at all times (as an adult). But I have heard otherwise on these forums. Can anyone site fed law in regards to this?

The crime would be "police brutality"?

A peace officer may stop any person who he reasonably suspects is committing, has committed, or is about to commit a crime and may require him to give his name and address, identification if available, and an explanation of his actions.

Democrats are against people being forced to obtain a personal Identification Card. So a national ID isn't possible, at the moment.

You only have to identify yourself if you have been "lawfully detained".

Suspicion is neither a felony nor a misdemeanor so if you arrested for simply not giving ID that is a violation of your 4th amendment rights and you can sue the hell out of them for it.

Drivers pulled over for an infraction has to ID, but not passengers.

We all make our own choices don't we?? The police were just following their programming, they cannot be faulted. The state is a machine. But the individual puts his own feet on the path to their next destination. Comply with the machine for now, eventually even it's source of power dries up in the end.

They found a tiny bit of meth in the car.

The man is in prison on unrelated burglary charges.

He is a scumbag...

but nothing excuses this-



The suit also accused Schneider of pulling down Wheatcroft’s shorts while he was handcuffed and “[tasing] his testicles and perineum, which was significantly and excruciatingly painful.” Schneider then “placed his taser on ... Wheatcroft’s penis and screamed, ‘Keep fighting and you’re going to get it again! You want it again? Shut your mouth! I’m done #ing around with you!’ At this same time, one of the officers placed a handgun to ... Wheatcroft’s head,” the lawsuit alleged.


This cop should hang.

Gotta love the official police statement...

Mr.
Wheatcroft
immediately began to physically resist the officers’ attempts to escort him from the vehicle while continuing to place his hands where officers could not see them. Officers displayed their Tasers and warned him of potential Taser use to gain his
compliance; however, Mr. Wheatcroft continued to argue, yell and physically resist the officers’ control holds. Due to the physical resistance from Mr. Wheatcroft, the Taser was used in a drive stun capacity in order to gain control and avoid physical injury.

Those barbarians need to be dealt with, I hope this doesn't get swept under the rug, again...

As far as I could see, he was compliant, but was reacting, just as anyone would, to overt intimidation.

I dunno man, I don't think I'd be passive and bend over if faced with a thug, just because he wears a gang uniform.

If the source of power dries up, yet you complied with the machine, won't you feel cheapened because you did as you were told, instead of standing your ground?

These police were over-confident, and overly vicious. I'm amazed that people who are brutalized by police, don't retaliate against the officer(s) at a later time.

Or maybe next time, it's a bullet in your brain instead of testicle zapping homo frat hazing. Think about it is what I am saying.

If this victim had such a hard-on to fight authority, why didn't he just go guns blazing??

This story is not even real man. It was generated randomly for your consumption by an AI algorithm trying to influence targeted populations.

It's all in writing, I don't even have to make it up because its all in writing the letter of the law and is actively funded every year.

Why do I have to repeat this so many times??? The only thing that is real, are the experiences you make when you put one foot in front of the other.

Tell me your crippled from the waist down, and I will say, your still thinking too small.

I think some officers forget that they are wearing cameras? That police statement omitted a lot...like no one would ever know what happened. It would be the criminal's word, against the cops.

Officer needs to be fired and charged with assault. I was half expecting him to tazer the young boy.

Yeah, and we are supposed to believe that a police department that trains its officers to taze men in the balls and taint because they don't have ID even though they aren't even driving a vehicle, we are supposed to trust THOSE cops with being truthful? You don't think cops like that couldn't plant some meth? Or lie?

I say police department because how many damn officers were there, helping this whole thing go down? None of them tried to stop their co-worker.

How can it not break a person's heart, when that terrified little boy says "please don't take my mommy away! She didn't mean to!" Absolutely heartbreaking. That asshole of a cop gave that little boy trauma for NO reason.

And since when do you have to have an ID if you're a passenger in a car?

We've seen this before. With these cops, if you challenge them or question them, no matter how respectfully, they lose it and beat the crap out of you. Same thing happened with that nurse in Utah, remember that one? Disgusting. And he got suspended for three days. UNbelieveable.
