Washington Cops Taser and Beat Non-resisting Unarmed Man, Claiming he Resisted

https://youtu.be/qjHV9Os8Neo

We all know that police have a very broad definition of what constitutes a resisting arrest charge but we should expect better from the media.

However, somebody at KEPR Action News took a look at the above video and decided the man in the video, Gordon Bailey, 51, was resisting arrest. But the video does not show the man resisting unless your definition of resisting is to be standing still while being tasered by a screaming cop.

The video posted to KEPR’s Facebook page also has its audio muted so we are unable to hear the cop screaming at the top of his lungs for the man to lie down about a second before tasering him. The cop then stomps on the man’s head as another cop comes running in to start punching him. That video is posted above.

The KEPR Facebook post also asks “Is this excessive force?”

In fairness, KEPR did include the video with the audio in its story which also lacked any mention of Bailey resisting arrest so we’ll blame the discrepancy between the headline and the video on whoever is running their Facebook page.

According to NBC Right Now, Kennewick police initially confronted Bailey because he was breaking into a pickup truck inside a fenced-off compound. Police say he then hid inside a bus in the compound but then ran from the bus as police moved in. He tried to hop over a fence but was tasered and arrested.

The video begins by showing Bailey standing in front of the fence before he is tasered and falls to the ground.

NBC Right Now also reports Bailey was arrested a few days after the incident for an unrelated incident in which he violated an order of protection by kicking a door and forcing his way inside an apartment.

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.
