IPCC To Probe Shocking Taser Arrest Video


news.sky.com

The Independent Police Complaints Commission has announced it is launching a formal investigation into the arrest of a man in Nottingham who was shot with a taser stun gun three times.

Sky News obtained footage of the dramatic arrest on Monday after it was filmed by a member of the public.

It shows officers wrestling with the man on the ground. He was tasered three times. At one point, an officer is seen punching him several times on the upper body.

As expected this is going to be investigated by the IPCC.

I know there is some debate here on ATS as to whether this was excessive or not, and we don't know the full story yet, but at least cases like this are being investigated.

Hopefully the police are finaly waking up to the fact that people will not just stand by and let this kind of behaviour go unreported.

I think this is a good thing. It is difficult for a police officer to do thier job when you have loads of bystanders close by giving opinions and abuse, but if it makes them think twice about thier actions, then it's not a bad thing.
