On Sept 24 the Hammond Police pulled over the incident, which took place unfolded after a woman was pulled over for not wearing her seatbelt. Several officers approached the car, and asked the driver and passenger to show identification. When the passenger refused to do so, officers asked him to step out of the car.The man refused to cooperate so police broke the window,tased the man and pulled him out of the car with force.

The police department in Indiana is facing a federal lawsuit. The lawyers defending the man in the car have a statement from him saying “he feared the police would harm him after he got out of the car”. And according to a statement from the Hammond Police Department, the passenger refused to leave the vehicle after repeated requests to do so. The problem with this is both are to blame for this situation because if the man cooperated with the cops this wouldnt have happened and the police should of handled this peacefully.

A peaceful solution to this problem, that could of been done is to help calm the victim down by making him feel like its safe because in that situation the cops were making everything more stressful by not talking to the man calm and orderly.The fact that this issue could of been avoided annoys me because the cops chose the easy, forceful way out of the situation.It makes you question “who really is the bad guy in this situation”?

    I think that I would do the same because I have seen too many cases in which police officers abuse of their power to injure the people. I don’t trust cops since I saw how they act unfairly on to other people like Michael Brown. Just for being a cop does not mean he wont hurt us. Real authority requires trust.

    I understand why the police and the man are to blame in this case, and I agree with you that if the man cooperated with the cops and the police could handled this peacefully. However, I think the police was not calm enough to handle this case because he smashed the window and tasered passenger.

    The cops never have the right to do this to someone without a threat. I understand he wasn’t cooperating, but this was out right uncalled for. I agree with what you said about calming the victim down and making him feel more safe, because that would of changed the victims perception and he probably would of cooperated. Also the cops should have let the victim aware that they were going to break the window if he didn’t cooperate, and even if they didn’t tell him they should not have tased the victim. I feel as if that goes against our rights that us citizens are entitled to because he wasn’t posing a threat to anyone but they assaulted him anyways. I’ve always agreed that some cops go against their power when in certain situations because they think they can get away with whatever they want. For example when a cop takes a bribe from a female to do sexual things so they will get out of the crime they committed.
