‘Goddamned Nazi Stormtrooper’: Texas cop Tasers 76-year-old man with expired inspection



A Texas police officer was placed on administrative leave on Friday after he reportedly used a Taser on a 76-year-old man after the suspect had already been forced to the ground.

The Victoria Advocate reported that 76-year-old Pete Vasquez was driving a work-owned vehicle back to his place of business on Thursday when 23-year-old Officer Nathanial Robinson pulled him over for an expired inspection.

Vasquez said that he explained that the car belonged to a car lot, and that the dealer tags made it exempt from having an inspection.


But dashcam video obtained by the paper shows Robinson using force to arrest Vasquez for what should have been a Class C misdemeanor. In the video, Vasquez pulls his arm away from Robinson, and the officer slams him into the hood of the patrol car. The two men disappear from camera range as Robinson places Vasquez in a hold, and then forces him to the ground.

78. absolutely no doubt

That doesn't mean that we should ignore it. Nor does it mean that we shouldn't grow as human beings

And although it has always been, it hasn't been as prevalent with so very many cops and departments.

It hasn't been that the cops and departments have been equipped with military gear. Or have been trained by military outside the country.

So, even though police brutality has always existed, it is worse.

17. I am going to get one next year, the possibility of capturing a criminal or a meteorite is equally

interesting an outcome, and nothing else can beat the evidence value, generally speaking.

Record both accidents and road rage, and it is all under your own control, that is the best part.

Each day you can go through your parked cars nightly recording to see what went on...or not in my neighbourhood, but there were a couple of incidents that a dash cam on my car might have made a lot of difference in.

The Russian dash cam accident recording compilations on U tube are interesting.

48. We have a number of very public issues of law breaking where no one was deemed accountable.

We had the Bush Administration falsify intelligence to justify a war. A War! A war that cost hundreds of thousands of lives and trillions of dollars! Nothing, no investigation, nothing. Bush and Cheney continue to run their mouths on TV.

Same with torture. No justice! None. Cheney even admits his guilt right on TV.

And mortgage fraud. Right in our face. Money laundering for drug smugglers and terrorists by one of the largest banks on earth. No punishment-zero! Nothing!

No wonder the police feel they can get away with anything. They do get away with anything! Anything and everything.

The new century started with the theft of a presidential election and since then the criminality has exploded!

This is the President's greatest failure, and it's a big one, a huge one.

I think the police culture is based upon an 'us against them' attitude. Lace that with racism and a complete lack of accountability. Mixed into the pot is the self-selection of this career by those who want power/like guns/enjoy violence.

This all adds up to a culture of police violence and abuse of power. It's not a matter of plucking out the bad apples; it's a matter of changing the culture.

Is this punkass moron pig cruising around looking for victims to abuse while listening to fuckin gangsta rap music?

I hope Officer Prick Asshole is fired, prosecuted, convicted and jailed...and if he isn't, I hope one day he tries to fuck over the wrong person, who takes the pig out in self-defense, because if this freak isn't jailed, he will continue the abuse until he fucks with the wrong guy.

And, I hope the victim in this case sues the crap outta the punkass pig and the PD that employs him -- bankrupt the lot of em!

I'm so tired of this shit happening literally every day in this country...what will it take to stop these brutal thugs from their violent, criminal behaviors under color of authority?

54. Why do we have BS laws like this anyway...

Pt. 1 - Eric Garner dies for "illegal cigarettes".
Pt. 2 - This gentleman gets tazed for a freaking vehicle inspection.

On the second part, why don't states just add the inspection cost to the tags and be done with it, like SC did years ago? It doesn't improve safety, and is another attempt to control the populace since its not a national requirement. I am not for unsafe cars, but TX, NC, VA, and other states that do inspections use it as an excuse for extortion.

Shouldn't laws be in place for important stuff, like murder, robbery, rape, and acts to/against children and otherwise helpless individuals? We are at a point in some jurisdictions that the cost of fighting relatively insignificant crimes exceeds available resources, and will happen with the "war on drugs". I could go on, you get the point here.

55. Hopefully he'll be fired and never hired anywhere else ever again.

If not, I won't be surprised to see his name pop up again after he needlessly shoots and kills someone. People like him do not belong in any position of authority, let alone one that gives him a weapon.

57. But....but....it's just an isolated incident....

99.99999999% of cops are heroes who would walk through hell to help citizens.



These incidents are not so isolated and apparently haven't been for a while. We just have more cameras now to see it happening.

58. This young cop, a bully and getting off on his power, should be fired

 

I ran into a cop like that once. Totally power tripping, and didn't like my attitude towards him. I guess I wasn't subservient enough for his liking.

59. A class C midemeanor?

Is there any category of crime more minor than that? Andthe vehicle didn't even belong to Vasquez!

I swear we might as well make all cops wear jackboots and black uniforms with little silver lightning bolts on the collar.

61. Tasering an older man should be considered attempted murder.

Sending electric shocks through the body of the elderly should be reserved for Automated external defibrillators.
