    Default Arrested for sagging pants, Ervin Edwards tasered to death in custody

    NEW VIDEO RELEASED OF MENTALLY ILL MAN TASED TO DEATH IN POLICE CUSTODY FOR “SAGGING PANTS”



    On November 26, 2013, 38 year old Ervin Edwards, partially deaf and mentally ill: http://theadvocate.com/news/12134862...-about-inmates

    -was arrested by police for sagging his pants and taken to the West Baton Rouge Parish jail in Louisiana. He only lived for a few more minutes inside of the cell.

    For 18 months, police have lied over and over again about what happened the night Ervin Edwards died in their custody. Now that a video of their despicable actions has been released, ( Warning very tough to watch ) it’s clear they murdered this man and left him to die all alone in his jail cell.

    Here are the 5 things you need to know:

    The Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7JA9CM6ThI

    -Shows an Officer Held a Taser on Him for 1 Minute, Contradicting Earlier Claims
    Edwards Was Left Alone & Unresponsive in the Cell for 10 Minutes Before He Was Given Medical Aid
    An Internal Review Found No criminal wrongdoing by the Officers
    His Girlfriend Told Officers He Had Health Issues That Could Make the Use of a Taser Fatal
    A Corrections Expert Said the Video is ‘One of the Worst Things I’ve Seen’

    Source: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2015/0...-lie-in-report
    Source: http://heavy.com/news/2015/04/ervin-...stin-mcmullan/
    Video: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2015/0...-lie-in-report

    Lie #1: Officer Dustin McMullan claimed in his report to only use the Taser for five seconds.

    “I then pulled the trigger on the Taser using the full five second circle on Edwards,”
    he wrote, meaning he shocked him for five seconds, which is the longest a shock can be applied without stopping for a brief time and pulling the trigger again. “However, the Taser did not appear to have any effect on Edwards.
    Truth: Officer McMullan kept the Taser firmly pushed into Ervin Edwards for over 90 seconds—which is 18 times longer than the officer claimed.
    In contrast to McMullan’s report, the video shows him keeping the stun gun pressed firmly against Edwards for nearly a minute and a half. While it’s unclear how much of that time was spent shocking the inmate, a bright blue light can be seen between the stun gun and Edwards on several occasions during a roughly 45-second period.
    Lie #2: Officer McMullan claimed to re-holster the Taser after using it once for five seconds.
    “Due to the obvious lack of effect of the Taser, I then re-holstered it,”
    McMullan wrote.
    “I then again assisted in restraining Edwards using empty hand control techniques”
    before the officers were able to remove the restraints from Edwards’ ankles and hands and all exit the cell.
    Truth: Officer McMullan only re-holstered the Taser after 90 seconds and Ervin Edwards was dead.
    Lie #3: McMullan claimed another deputy performed a well-check on Edwards and saw him moving around in the cell.

    Truth: Ervin Edwards appears to have been dead the moment they left his jail cell and never moved an inch in the 10 minutes they left him there.

    wow. that's brutal. the more i read in the "media" i see more bad cops then i do good ones... even though this was two years ago, it's quite infuriating to see what "to protect and serve" really boils down to.

    i wonder how long it'll be before the vid is taken off this yt acc.

    of course you dont see in the media all about good cops, because its expected they be good. news is only news when something goes wrong. how would you feel if you saw this headline:

    "Cop Does His Job and Arrests Man"

    idk about you but I would think: k? good for him?

    then i guess a better statement would be to ask is why i'm seeing it in the first place.

    It's their jobs, they get paid for it.

    And if you feel so bad about me posting about bad cops, why don't you take the time to post threads about good cops? I will post what I want with my time, you can post your own threads expressing your love for the job. k?

    I don't know if it is just me who feels like this but it's seems that nothing is being done to to try and prevent the brutality that these police officers seem to abuse their power
