LAPD Cops Shoot Man in Wheelchair with 3 Bean Bag Rounds and a Taser

5 posts in this topic

Los Angeles, CA — Three rounds with a bean bag gun and a taser — deployed against a man in a wheelchair.

The LAPD is facing criticism after a video surfaced that shows them firing beanbag rounds at a man in a wheelchair and then hitting him with a taser.

According to LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith, the man in the wheelchair, Christopher Adam Zareck, 43, swung a pole at police when they tried to take him into custody.

Police were called to the scene around 7:00 pm last Friday after a man reported that he’d been in an altercation with Zareck. Ironically enough, the man claiming he’d been in an altercation with Zareck said he successfully defended himself against the wheelchair-bound man. However, nearly a dozen officers were deployed to stop this one man.

The video, taken by homeless skid row resident Hubert Jackson, shows 10 officers on the scene for this one man in a wheelchair.

[...]

Imagine for a moment, a man threatening to hit you with a pole, who is in a wheelchair. He cannot move toward you as long as he holds the pole. There is little, if any threat here. Now imagine that you have a dozen of your friends with you. The man, who is in a wheelchair, regardless of the stick in his hand, becomes almost no threat whatsoever.

If talking to the man nicely, which most likely did not happen, was unsuccessful, simply walking behind him to grab the pole would have been simple. A couple of children could have taken the pole away from Zareck, yet it took 10 cops, 3 beanbag rounds, and a taser.

The notion of “making it home to my family” holds little water in situations like this one. These officers could have shot and killed Zareck and the same rationalization would have been used. At what point does the unnecessary violent escalation become police brutality?

Between those who push the hatred for the police, and by their very own actions like
in the above video's, its easy to see why more and more people hate them every day!

Think about it... 10 cops for just one man? And in a wheelchair yet! Fagots! How low
can we go?

Who are these police and what is their background?
Something has changed recently. It didn't used to be this way.
