This video is a few years old (2015) but many haven’t seen it, including me. I thought you might want see it. Rather, I think you need to see it.
It records a fatal traffic stop initiated by a Michigan AGW affronted by another driver flashing his headlights at him – apparently, because the AGW’s high beams were on.
The driver is a 17-year-old kid.
The kid is initially polite and tries to explain to the AGW why he flashed his headlights. He explains that he though the AGWs brights were on – and flashing headlights is a common way to convey that fact to a driver who may be oblivious to his brights blinding oncoming traffic.
Rather than accept this and let it drop, the AGW escalates:
When the kid tries to make a phone call, the AGW commences the Hut! Hut! Hutting! – ordering the teen out of the car, then threatening him with a Tazer.
Keep in mind, the kid pulled over, wasn’t remotely violent or threatening.
His offense – soon to be fatal – was failing to submit and obey.
The AGW – using IDF submission techniques – orders the kid to “get on the ground!” – in order to humiliate and degrade the kid. Who is a scrawny, unarmed and completely nonviolent 17-year-old kid. He hasn’t even committed a misdemeanor. The “safety” of the armed thug is mot in any danger.
But his Authority has been questioned. And that cannot stand.
“Get on your belly, right now!” the thug screams at the frightened kid. who is understandably baffled by the over-the-top escalation of the AGW.
The AGW then kicks the kid’s cell phone away and starts manhandlinghim, then Tazes him and then – seconds later – pumps seven shots into the kid’s back.
Deven Guilford is now six feet under.
His roadside executioner, “Sergeant” Jonathan Frost was – no surprise – cleared of any criminal responsibility for the summary execution.
This one ranks right up there with the murder of Daniel Shaver by AGW Philip Brailsford in Arizona. That murderous AGW was also acquitted of the murder he committed.
Guilford’s parents are suing the AGW and if they succeed, taxpayers will have to pay.
But “Sergeant” Frost won’t.
