In this absolutely crazy insane video, a deputy police officer is shown attempting to arrest a guy who simply gets up and tries to leave. After he tazes him, the guy assaults the officer, then rams his car into his patrol car.
The video was caught by a security guard who witnessed the whole thing.
The police released a statement on why more force wasn’t used on a clearly combative perp:
“Upon seeing the video, we are grateful that no one suffered significant injuries in this incident. Our deputies must routinely make split-second decisions on the use of force. In this instance, the deputy made an assessment that it was not required. As in other cases, on-scene video does not necessarily reflect the true story however we will look into the matter further. Since the case has been forwarded to the District Attorney’s office for review and charges, we must refrain from additional comments on this case as the final outcome is now in the hands of the San Joaquin County District Attorney’s Office.”
It took some digging but I found the dude’s name.
Stockton police say after checking on an alarm, officers found Yaroub Assad inside the Sears on Pacific Ave w/ a backpack of stolen goods. pic.twitter.com/orjKWrOzqX— Kay Recede FOX40 (@KayRecede) September 28, 2017
Yaroub. Assad. Hmmm.
Meanwhile if you go into the YouTube comments, you’ll see dozens of people saying the guy had white privilege and had he been black, the cop woulda shot him. Hmmm. Yaroub. Assad.
