I don’t normally shine a bad light on police. Mistakes are made, careers are ruined as the result of lapses in judgement, misunderstandings, sometimes something that could go either way goes bad because that’s just the way the brass comes down with it. But, when an officer does something that is exactly opposite of what he/she has been trained to do, is expected to do and paid to do; they are crossing lines. The officer in this video crossed about 8 lines. And a federal court agrees.
Watch the video (viewer discretion is advised) and then read the story below the video. This video/info is shared from Youtube. It was uploaded by “PoliceActivity” in 2016.
For those folks that want to scream “POLICE BRUTALITY” when a cop has to touch you, you are about to see what police brutality really looks like. The only thing cool about this cop is that his uniform fits correctly.
Keep in mind, when a cop zaps someone, they are only supposed to juice that suspect for like, 5 seconds. If they do it correctly and everything works out right, that’s all it takes. They do it again sometimes if they aren’t getting the results they want. Watch how long this Missouri Police Officer zaps this guy.
And for those of you that like to screw with the police, I’ve watched this video several times. Good cop, bad cop, civil rights, video cameras, whatever…..this whole scenario went south when the driver wouldn’t roll his passenger side window down. Just sayin’; It’s something to think about.

A federal judge has released a police dash cam video showing a Missouri police officer using force and a stun gun on a teenager who went into cardiac arrest. Former Independence Officer Timothy N. Runnels was sentenced last week to four years in federal prison after pleading guilty to violating the civil rights of 17-year-old Bryce Masters during a Sept. 14, 2014, traffic arrest.
The video was played in court during Runnels’ sentencing hearing, The Kansas City Star reported.
Police said Masters was uncooperative during the stop. The video shows Runnels instructing Masters to get out of the car, and Masters can be heard asking Runnels why and whether he is under arrest.
Runnels then can be seen trying to pull Masters out of the car and uses the stun gun on Masters. The stun gun continues to discharge for about 20 seconds. After Masters goes limp, Runnels can be seen handcuffing the teen and dragging him to the curb, where he drops him face down onto the pavement.
Runnels called for an ambulance after a few minutes but did not check on Masters. When the ambulance arrived, Masters was in cardiac arrest. He was taken to a hospital and put into a medically induced coma and treated for lack of oxygen to the brain. Masters testified recently that he is forgetful and has difficulty focusing as a result of the incident.
