INJUSTICE! Teen struck by Ohio campus officer's Stun Gun DIES!


CINCINNATI (AP) — Police say an 18-year-old attending summer classes at the University of Cincinnati was struck by a campus officer's stun gun and died of cardiac arrest.

Officers received a 911 call about an assault at Turner Hall early Saturday. The university's assistant police chief, Jeff Corcoran, tells The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://bit.ly/q3FIuz ) that the teenage boy approached officers in the dorm hallway, appearing agitated and angry.

Corcoran says officers ordered the teen to back off, but he refused. He was then hit once by an officer's stun gun.

Afterward, the teen appeared incoherent. He went into cardiac arrest after paramedics arrived and was pronounced dead at University Hospital.

The department has suspended the use of stun guns until his cause of death is determined. Authorities are also investigating the original 911 call.

THIS IS A STORY THAT SHOULD NEVER HAVE HAPPENED. The Campus Police are there to protect students not to STUN GUN them. The kid went up to the cops for help and they zapped him and he dies... It reminds me of the time in Florida when a young man shouted DON'T TASE ME BRO! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqAVvlyVbag

Watching this video from the 2007 College Police brutality incident in one of our Florida colleges... (still moves me to a bawling point...)

That episode should have created a whole new training program for those people hired to uphold the laws and protect our children during their time of learning how to Critically Think.

INJUSTICE IS ALIVE AND WELL and police brutality is still a CANCER that will grow if left untreated!!!

Sad beyond comprehension!!
