WATCH: Cop Allegedly Tasers Herself, Then 6 Cops ‘Rodney King’ a Man Lying Down

Tucson, AZ — A video uploaded to LiveLeak early Wednesday morning is causing massive controversy online, leading many to ask why a man was brutally beaten by up to a half-dozen cops for several minutes — after he was already on the ground.

The video was posted to LiveLeak and titled, “Tucson cops pull a Rodney King,” and the scenario it shows is quite similar to that historical police beating of Rodney King back in 1991.

The uploader, who goes by the handle, nadiigirl, uploaded the video with the following description.

In beginning of video, a women cop accidentally tases herself and six cops end up beating a black man that was already down. I had to take out sound because of certain remarks that are made around me. I hope this can help someone in some way. Happened after 2am on 4th Ave, Tucson.

As the video begins, a police officer in a white jacket can be seen struggling with a man in a red jacket on the ground. At this point, a female officer, also in the struggle, stands up and appears to deploy a taser which then appears to hit herself and possibly the man and the other officer. The female officer then falls backward from the effects as the officer in white jumps from the jolt.

After the female officer collapses, the scene is calm for a brief moment — before all hell breaks loose.

As someone attends to the female officer, the man in a red jacket can be seen lying entirely still on the ground. Then, at one point, officers appear to take particular interest in the man on the ground. They swarm him and begin punching and kneeing him.

As the officers continue to beat the man, he appears to react in an attempt to defend himself. The reaction appears to prompt officers to dole out more force. For several moments, more officers arrive and join in on the beating until the man is seen lying motionless as officers appear to search him.

What caused this sudden onslaught of officers to begin beating this man is unclear. It is indeed possible that this man had a weapon and this is what caused the officers to react the way they did. However, at no time in the video below can we see officers remove a weapon or anything else from the man.

The Free Thought Project has reached out twice to the Tucson Police department for a statement. However, we have not received a response from either of the inquiries. We will update this story as more details emerge.

    The police in Neptune Beach Florida did the same thing to me. Except I was handcuffed behind my back in the back seat. Without provocation they drug me out and a trio of officers began beat me. I was locked in the jail for months and refused access to a doctor. I had to manufacture my own splints to heal my broken bones. Also assault charges were brought against me although there had been no resistance and no assault.I was required to spend months in jail and go through a jury trial where I was released and the charges dismissed by the jury.All I got out of this was more scars.

      So cops can claim fear and kill but when you have actually fear of death and harm while cuffed and best we should jusy forget about it. The actions you described had they happened to me would have led to a permanent help wanted sign being placed in the window of that PD.

    Historically, the TPD cowards refuse to acknowledge requests for a statement, and will continue to claim their officers did nothing wrong even as a fat settlement check is being printed out. Then new chief might be a little different.

    This is a department that has more shenanigans going on in their ranks than a college fraternity. Those guys are banging hookers while on duty, banging prisoners, and banging each other. And every time one of these stories break, the whole lot of them are standing around saying “I dindu nuffin” and all of them will claim “I’m the first to step up and stop other cops from doing bad cop stuff.”

    Heard them make the claim first hand.

    I used to work in a local emergency department and as a general rule we would not call TPD for disturbances in the department because they always took an unfortunate situation and made it 100 times worse. Escalation was SOP for them.

    because of an incompetant women cops,the rest of the criminal cops decide to beat up a negro instead,how nice,hope the criminal female cop at least gives the brother a reach around to say thanks…cunt

    • Zackknowitall

      Too bad cops only claim their is a war on cops. How diffenrt would they act if there was?

      • Ibcamn

        they would shit themselves….the departments can’t hold them all on every shift,some would actually have to come out of the building at some point.

        • Zackknowitall

          Siege the police department would not work. In no time they would have thousands of cops backing them up. Something like michia Johnson did in Austin Texas but with a run away to fight another day. The fighting to the death will not work. 1 person could kill 100 or more cops in a year but only if they hit and move.

    I defied a cop who was giving me a lecture on bicycle helmet which was heated up by his authoritarian control, what was self defence was his call, I was charged with assault but truth is I was assaulted and ended up with a criminal conviction all because I stood up for myself. We are living in dangerous times and seem to jump to conclusions too easy and make a mountain out of an incident and without due cause and beat the shit out of what they can’t understand is not what democracy is all about. This happened to me in Australia and am fortunate that it didn’t happen in one of the southern states of America or I mightn’t have made it out alive.
