i'll try and give a little background story.. BTW this was caught on video of which i have a copy but i need help posting it.
my uncle lives in idaho and one night a couple was filming some local police who pulled over a car for speeding. first off the cops were coming off
with an attitude about the filming, saying the camera could be a weapon and such.
Several boring minutes roll by while they film a regular traffic stop, then the camera man decides to turn off the camera and go inside. Well thats
when my uncle rode by on his bicycle like he does every night. One of the police officers said "hey come over here!" so my uncle stops his bike and
the police ask him for ID, at which point he tells them to take a hike, because he doesnt have to show him ID for nothing. He continues asking for the
ID and my uncle keeps refusing because he has done absulutely nothing wrong. and he ends up getting tasered several times, this is where the camera
starts filming again and the cops were telling him he is under arrest for not producing his id (the words are on tape) then taser him again. During
this time he was asking for counsel and to talk to the sheriff but they kept refusing.
after they arrest him the police approach the camera man and try to confiscate the taped incident to cover their tracks. my uncle is 54 and on
disability with back problems and the taser and arrest has left him with permanent nerve damage in his arms and back.
i have been asked by my family to get this on youtube but i only have the CD and i dont know how. i need some of you computer gurus to help walk me
through it or, i need a trustworthy member to mail it to who can post if for me.
listening to and watching a family member be tasered by the police is very sobering..
how do i get this out there for others to see?
