Texas cop uses Taser gun on man too slow to provide proof of insurance




Update: This incident occurred in 2006 and the officer was suspended for three days after an internal affairs investigation. Here is the transcript of the IA interview and here is memo from the chief explaining the suspension.



As Photography is Not a Crime reader Jay pointed out last week, it’s “like fucking Groundhog Day” because all you need to do is change the venue and the name of the cop and it’s the same story all over again.

This time it is an Austin cop who has pulled over a driver for going five miles over the speed limit. Yes, five measly miles. The car also did not have a license plate on the rear, but had one on the front.

The cop demands the guy’s license and proof of insurance and when the guy doesn’t oblige in a matter of seconds, the cop starts yelling at the driver for his license and proof of insurance.

The driver tells the officer that he is looking for the necessary documents, but he is also taken aback by the cop’s aggressive and unnecessary tone.

The officer then orders him out of the car, still demanding his license and proof of insurance.

The driver steps out and the officer starts yelling at him to step to the back of the vehicle.

The driver is not posing any threat but saying something like “I have no idea …”

The officer starts pushing him, then finally uses his Taser gun on him.

This all happened within 45 seconds.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
