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.
