Teen Killed by Taser, Cops Laugh and High-Five Each Other

We Are Change headed to Miami Beach — the site where Israel Hernandez was killed after being tased by Miami Beach Police.

Exclusive interviews were conducted with Israel’s best friends, who were with him the night he was caught drawing a small amount of graffiti on an abandoned building that was already covered in street art. According to his best friends/eye witnesses, after Israel was tased and apparently dead, the cops were laughing and “high-five-ing” each other.

    Tazers are weapons, not as deadly as a high caliber bullet but weapons none the less and need to be restricted to defensive roles for when a police officer is defending himself or another person from physical harm or when the escape of a suspect his a reasonable probability of leading to a person being harmed. sadly today police behave as if a tazer is a toy to be used whenever they don’t think someone has the proper attitude. A nonviolent petty criminal fleeing is not going to cause someone harm, physical force should not be used.

    The culture of law enforcement has gotten totally out of control. We now have an us vs. them attitude in the police that exists to dominate “civilians” and it’s
    getting worse.

      the police aren’t the problem, not really. The problem is the multitudes that see nothing wrong with how they act. follow the story on the disinfo facebook page or cnn and you will see many people saying police are within their rights to assault anyone that disobeys them

    reminds me of what happened near my town a couple of months ago and the cop got away with it too. http://www.phillyburbs.com/my_town/pennridge/questions-pain-linger-in-police-involved-shooting/article_9bea465e-8d6b-52a9-aea4-5effc0f44b26.html

    If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. If all you have is a rolled-up newspaper, everything looks like a puppy. If you are a cop, everyone looks like a…

    These young people will never see their friend replaced. It makes me so sad to know how much different my life and things would be so much better if friends of mine hadn’t gone to jail, or gotten killed. We need to know how to stick together and protect each other. This Counter Culture Drug War has killed and mentally destroyed 1000s where in South Florida you know the cops feel that reward for every bust to even go to the place of murdering a defenseless young man is a joke. Those cops get a medal for that. All over the US they get medals for killing and stealing, and insulting the young and the poor.

    America is no longer a democracy said former president Jimmy Carter.
    I’m appalled by what is going on in America.
    This is surreal. Wake up Americans!
