Cops Tried To Tase Arbery In 2017
quote:

Video of Ahmaud Arbery getting frisked and patted down by cops in 2017 might say a lot about Glynn County PD's attitude toward black people ... keeping in mind Gregory McMichael was once a member of that force.

The video shows 2 officers questioning Ahmad after finding him alone in his car, in a Brunswick, GA park in November 2017. The officers asked to search his car, and the scene got intense when he said no and stepped toward his car. The officers immediately told him to stop and get his hands out of his pockets.

Despite the fact Ahmaud immediately obeyed their orders -- and had his hands in the air -- one officer pulled his taser and fired it. Now, the weapon malfunctioned, but Ahmaud was already getting down on the ground anyway.

About two minutes earlier, the officers had asked for ID, and Ahmaud complied and explained he'd been rapping in his car on his day off. When the officer came back with his license, Ahmaud said, "I ain't got s**t on me. What the f**k you f**king with me for?"

The officer told him the area was known for drug activity and then proceeded to frisk Ahmaud for weapons. He had nothing on him, and there was nothing illegal about him parking in the area.

Still, the officer wanted to search his car ... and that's when the attempted-tasing went down ... despite the fact, they already knew he had no weapon on him.

He was not arrested or cited for anything.

The question now ... is the video, first obtained by the Guardian, relevant to Ahmaud's murder. You could argue it shows the Glynn County PD harassing a young black man who was guilty of nothing more than sitting in his car.

Of course, one of his accused murders, Gregory McMichael, is a retired detective with GCPD, who we know now told police to have at least one resident contact him directly if there was any sign of an intruder.

You got to give it to Arbery's family's lawyers. They are doing their job by using what they have to paint a certain picture that favors their case.

If this story is true (and while some of you don't think TMZ isn't credible, they are probably one of the more credible news sources there is) this doesn't make that police department look all that great. Especially the part where their taser misfired. Good thing it wasn't a situation where they were trying to get someone who would have easily gotten away after the misfired taser.

So that justifies him being murdered?

He just casually walked up and tried to tase him. Not under arrest hasn’t done anything other than be “suspicious”, arms out and but for a malfunction he would have gotten tased.

Yeah but the job of a lawyer is to try to paint a picture that favors their client's case. While it will not be used in court, public opinion (which can include possible jurors) can play a big factor.

But it helps the case. That's the whole point. The more his family's lawyer can use to paint a certain picture of the police department (which the ole man who chased him used to be on) that favors his client then it will help in the case to convict them.
