Was the Police Video on Tasering Staged?
- Was the Police Video on Tasering Staged?Elizabeth Rawlings has come up with a good question. She asks the following:....Re: Medical Care: Taser Guns: Documented DataWhy did some material have to be surgically removed from you within this process and no one ever mentions that the police are able to pick themselves up and walk away feeling fine within so many a process? Do they go and gain access to medical care?Are the "TASER GUNS" that the police use all the same? You don't seem to read about the removal of any metal objects, when you read about other people being shot with these weapons. ....* * *Dear Elizabeth:Your observation regarding the police video is noteworthy for comment as to why the police officer was able to just get up and walk away after being shot with a taser gun. First, it should be noted that all darts from a taser gun are barbed like a fish hook in which the "J" configuration has been straightened. This is so the darts, after penetrating the flesh, do not fall out. Once the darts penetrate the body they must be surgically removed by a medical doctor. If one were to just grab the wires and yank them, they would bring out a chunk of flesh. The law states that only a medical doctor can remove taser darts.In the appended video report, it shows a close-up of the darts. These darts are the same as those shot into my body. What they did not state in the video is that a taser gun is capable of shooting two cassettes of darts, each holding two darts, for a total of four darts.Now here you may be asking how they did it with the test police officer that was shot by a taser gun. I can affirmatively state that either these were unconventional taser darts made specially for the sake of the experiment so he could get up and appear unscathed, saying "I feel just fine," and walking away, Or he was wearing protective clothing under his shirt to keep the darts from penetrating his body. In either case, since this is not how taser guns are used on the street, it was a false demonstration employing fraud to mislead the public. In truth, the officer would still have those darts sticking out of his body, and he would have to have them surgically removed by a doctor. Believe me, this is a very painful operation, and no one could say, "I feel just fine." The doctor used local anathesia to lesson my pain. The fact that they say nothing about the officer having to have those darts removed by a doctor gives a strong impression that the demonstration was apparently a fake for the purpose of deception.- Ron Branson* * *Taser Guns In Today's News (corrected version *)By Ron BransonIn the current news this day much is being made of police officers using taser guns on people whom they encounter. This has motivated me to send out this report asking our readers to view the following video, followed by my personal experience of being shot with a taser gun.Assuming you have viewed the above video wherein a police officer volunteered to be shot with a taser gun, and going face down within five seconds, then getting up and saying he felt fine, I wish to tell you my experience.First off, everyone who has personally known me for many years knows me to be a non-violent person who has never taken drugs or alcohol, and has always maintained self-control of his demeanor. Even those who have never personally met me but receive my emails for years would find it inconsistent that I am anything other than I have described. I have been a very principled minister and a counselor for many years, and one who loves people, and seeks to help them if I can.Having said that, I now turn to my personal experience at being tasered. One of the things that police do not like in me is my knowledge in law and the Constitution; and my citing of legal authority appears to be a threat to them, just as one judge said following my tasering experience, "Mr. Branson, you know enough [law] to be dangerous." What? Knowledge of the law is dangerous? Yes, there is no typo here, I am documented as being a dangerous man because I know too much!Because of my asserting of rights under the Constitution, I was shot by a taser gun; but not for five seconds as illustrated in the above video, but for three rounds of thirtyseconds each. And not with two darts shown in the video, but with four darts [twice what the officer was shot with.] Now keep in mind that I was fully behind bars, not subject to escaping, and all of my belongings removed from my person. [Watch, belt, wallet, etc.] What danger could I pose? Ah, yes, it was my mouth asserting the Constitution and questioning their authority.The man behind the taser gun: LAPD Sergeant Morgan. Every time he said, "Are you going to submit?" I responded, "I stand on my Constitutional rights." He then would turn on the electricity and torture me for thirty seconds. [This happened three consecutive times.] And what was he asking for in reference to "submitting?" He wanted me to strip naked. My argument was that if they wanted my clothes, they would have to remove them from me. I was not going to help them do an unlawful act.Now let me develop this from a legal and Constitutional stance. LAPD had made an unlawful policy, practice and custom of strip-searching every person they arrested on supposed felony charges. In another police case, Los Angeles Federal Judge Wilson declared such LAPD policy as unconstitutional. The City of Los Angeles appealed the decision of Judge Wilson to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals wherein they affirmed the decision of Judge Wilson as being well-founded upon the Constitution. The decision of the court was that it might be possible that one may be arrested on felony charges, such as writing a bad check, that does not involve drugs, weapons or violence. In such case, there lacks every precept of Probable Cause under the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution to conduct a strip-search.This case fit into my situation to a T. There were no drugs, guns or violence, yet LAPD was intent on following through with their illegal and unconstitutional policy upon me, enforced by the use of a taser gun. After being tortured by the taser gun, I was taken to the hospital where a doctor had to surgically remove from my body the embedded barbed darts (four of them), which was quite painful.I initiated a lawsuit against the officers involved in that illegal search incident, and only during discovery did I hear for the first time their excuse for using a taser gun on me. Sgt. Morgan stated that I was going for the throat of one of his officers. However, Sgt. Morgan failed to keep his story straight, for I asked him where the officer was standing whose throat I was going for, and where Morgan was standing when he shot the taser gun. Officer Morgan testified under oath that he was standing on my right side when he pulled the trigger when I was supposedly going for the throat of that officer. Yet, the doctor's medical report cited exactly where he removed each dart from my body, and every one of them were on my left side. [I still have the photographs taken by an RN showing where each dart penetrated my body]. LAPD must have magical darts in their taser guns, for they can turn curves and hit the opposite side of one's body.I testify that these police officers enjoy the use of their taser guns whether justified or not. The officer whose throat I was supposed to have charged even asked me the question in the hospital, "How did it feel?" That is an actual quote.I know you are wondering what happened in court. Federal Judge William Keller covered up for all the police officers and dismissed my case in chief.In state court, all of the police officers and the City of Los Angeles defaulted in the $13,620,000 lawsuit. The matter was submitted for judgment, and the judge, according to law and the California Constitution had 90 days to render a decision. There has been no decision in the case to this day. I could never appeal the non-judgment no-decision, so I took a petition for cert. that went through all levels of state court and to the U.S. Supreme Court, and then through federal court system and to the U.S. Supreme Court, with no decision of the case to this day. I have concluded that only the passage of J.A.I.L. in California will allow me to get a decision on my thirteen million six-hundred and twenty thousand dollar lawsuit.The result is now the existence of JAIL4Judges, which we are all seeking to place into enforcement.- Ron BransonDriver Tased For Asking Officer Why He Was Stopped
Man who refused to sign speeding ticket because he did not understand what it was is tased and arrested by officer who then refused to read him his rightsSteve Watson
Wednesday, Nov 21, 2007A man was tased and arrested on a Utah highway after being stopped by an officer and refusing to sign a speeding ticket because he did not understand what offence he had committed or why he had been pulled over.The encounter, captured on the police car camera on September 14th and released this week, is the latest in a long string of incidents involving the unacceptable use of Tasers by officers on citizens whom the evidence reveals are in no way threatening, acting unlawfully or resisting co-operation.The video shows the Utah Highway Patrolman pull over Jared Massey and his pregnant wife who also had their baby with them in the car and ask for Mr Massey's license.Mr Massey tells the officer he does not understand why he has been stopped or what he is being charged with, at which point the officer orders Massey to get out of the car. The officer then puts down his clipboard and immediately takes out his Taser and points it at Mr Massey without any provocation whatsoever, yelling "Turn around and put your hands behind your back" as Massey attempts to point out the speed limit sign and engage the officer in conversation.A shocked Massey asks "what the hell is wrong with you?" and backs away, turning around as the officer had demanded, at which point the officer unleashes 50,000 volts from the Taser into Massey's body, sending him screaming to the ground instantly and causing his wife to jump out of the car and yell hysterically for help.Watch the video on this page:http://infowars. net/articles/ november2007/ 211107Tased. htmLying face down on the ground a shell shocked, Mr Massey says "officer I don't know what you are doing, I don't know why you are doing what you are doing" to which the officer replies "I am placing you under arrest because you did not obey my instruction. "Mr Massey then once again asks the officer several times why he was stopped and what he is being charged with. He then asks for his rights to be read and points out that the officer cannot arrest him without doing this. Instead of reading Massey his rights the officer then addresses another patrolman who arrives on the scene sardonically commenting "Ohhh he took a ride with the Taser" to which the other officer answers "painful isn't it".The icing on the cake comes at the end of the video when the officer LIES to his own colleague about the encounter, clearly stating that he verbally warned Massey he was going to tase him, as is the law, when there was no warning whatsoever.Mr Massey is planning to file a lawsuit against the Utah Highway Patrol. He says he was already slowing down as he approached the 40 mile per hour sign in the construction zone outside of Vernal. All charges except for the speeding ticket have been dropped.This amazing video reveals how eroded civil and constitutional rights have now become. The officer had no legal right to make Massey sign any document he did not understand Tasers are supposed to be the last response before lethal action, however, police now use them as if they are batons or pepper spray.In the last year over 300 people have died in admitted cases in the US alone from being tased. In the last week alone we have posted three separate stories of Taser deaths. Every week we post stories of incidents, which often feature old women, children and disabled people as the victims. The weapons are even being used in schools.The police are now trained that "pain compliance," a euphemism for torture, is acceptable in apprehending anyone even if that person poses no physical danger. If you electrify any person, they suffer extreme pain and stand a high chance of being killed.Despite this, idiotic media hacks such as Fox News host Brian Kilmead are happy to promote police state tactics, selling the idea that protestors or people that merely question authority in any way are threatening and should be tased or "beaten to a pulp".This phenomenon is out of control, how many more acts of wanton police brutality, torture and death by means of tasering are we to endure?Taser use is being abused by police all over the country and beyond as cops are trained that torture is a perfectly acceptable response to somebody who acts out of the ordinary, asks the wrong question or refuses to show their papers.------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -------

The taser was originally accepted as a self defensive "non-lethal" weapon. Gradually we have learned that it is actually a lethal weapon which has killed many people (articles below).At the same time, the taser is being increasingly used in situations where the police officer has no need for self defense. Police now use the term "pain compliance" as a euphemism for torture.A video camera caught Utah Highway Patrolman John Gardner stopping Jared Massey, with his pregnant wife, and their baby with them in the car. Apparently speeding was the only charge that could have been made against Jared Massey at the time of the stop.Then Jared Massey refused to sign the citation. The Utah Highway Patrolman called this "disobeying" his instructions. Here is a clear distortion of the concept of a LAWFUL order. Citizens have a constitutional right to remain silent. Jared Massey asked repeatedly to be advised of his rights, but the video gives no indication that this was ever done. Being ordered to sign any document is not a lawful order, particularly without having had the benefit of legal counsel. A signature given under duress has no validity.
The Utah Highway Patrol spokesman, Cameron Roden, admitted that Patrolman John Gardner could have simply written "refuses to sign" on the citation.Follow ups:
TASER Danger? 70 Deaths After Use Of Stun Gun Lead To Questions Over Its Safety* (Corrected version) - Due to proofreading by Barbie after the fact it was determined thata number of phrases needed to be clarified. There are no changes in substances except as to thetime that I was subjected to the electricity from the taser gun. I originally stated that it was threebursts of 30 minutes. It should have said 30 seconds each. Therefore, it is appropriate todiscard the former send and replace it with this corrected version. - Ron
