I've watched the vid several times and I don't know... to me it looks like things got way out of hand on everyone's part... cops are jumpy enough
as it is and when the 14 yo comes running around the van... that had to put the officer on the defensive... you see him go after the boy with a Taser
in hand... right before he smashed the window.
My take .... the passengers were damn lucky to be alive... provoking the officer(s) bad move... the struggle only made things worse... and then
Say what you will about rights being violated, that's not for me to judge... What I will say is we've all seen stories where someone pulled a stunt
like this and officers responded with deadly force...
