"The man, Bruce Harper, was pulled over for having a crooked front license plate. Whether this is in violation of some Utah regulation is unknown, but let's assume, arguendo, that it's a heinous vehicle infraction.By the glory of the dash cam, we see what follows.
There is an obvious reaction, that had Bruce Harper merely done as he was ordered, what followed never would have happened. It's likely correct. The officers weren't on the road looking for people to taser. They weren't looking to make Bruce Harper's life miserable. If only he had been compliant."
"Maybe you recall this story, a Utah man was pulled over by the City of Bountiful, Utah police. He got out of his car, unarmed, hands at his sides and implored the police officer to tell him why he was stopped. The cops deployed the TASER on him, mmmmmmmm . . . 8 or 9 or maybe 10 times.
The City of Bountiful is paying,. Hey, that means you, taxpayers. Congratulations."
