Being aggressively tasered is not the equivalency of being shot for being black, or being shot being black in a security uniform, or being shot being a black counselor taking care their ward with autism, or being shot being black in a hoodie with skittles in your pocket heading home from a corner store.
That said, it is f**king horrific whenever police go overboard, regardless of the victim's skin colour. We had a case here in Vancouver where a man was tasered TO DEATH for being uncooperative. I think he threw a stapler or another office supply at the police so 4 or 5 of them tasered him all at once and he died.
Police aggression and brutality should never be the first response.

You do realize that there are even more white people shot to death by police than black people, right? Look up the case of Daniel Shaver who was shot to death while on his knees, sobbing and surrendering to the police.
